Being up to date is (virtually) everything in Montreux, the most chic spot, full of tradition, on Lake Geneva. And the youth hostel is up to date. You just have to be here! The dining room jazzy, the seating corner classic, the foyer rustic, the day room busy. French esprit combined with sophisticated flair, makes many hearts beat faster in Montreux. Just like the leisure possibilities on the 'Waadtlnder Riviera' - oh-l-l!

A picture book hostel.
The rest of the building's equipment and furnishings are modern. Unusual design is demonstrated by the triangular door handles as well as by the violet and yellow window frames. The rooms have 2 or 8 beds and whatever else you may need during an overnight stay is near at hand.

You definitely have to have a meal in this hostel! Because of the excellent food, but also because of the dining room. Modern arranged spots place you in scenes ready for the stage, surrounded by large format portraits of numerous jazz greats. The famous jazz festival takes place in Montreux in July.

The youth hostel's location speaks for itself: only 20 metres from the lake shore, a couple of steps from the building is the wonderful lakeside promenade, which, with a 30 minute leisurely walk, leads direct to the centre of Montreux. Therefore, an exclusive location away from the hustle and bustle but nevertheless virtually in the middle of it all!

Christmas doesn't get much better than wandering around a snow-coated market with a hot mulled wine in hand. The smell of roasted chestnuts and the twinkling lights will put even a Grinch into the Christmas spirit.
