Liked: The owners were lovely, really helpful. The kitchen was a great help, and the fresh pot of cofee always available was a lifesaver. The wifi is also brilliant. Very clean, relaxed place. Also they did my laundry for really cheap.

Disliked: Maybe the location is not right in the centre of town, but it is really jot that far away, a pleasant walk along the river.

Liked: Very neat and cleanly maintained. They offer free wi-fi and have 2 desktop machines for browsing wich is really good!!! The recioptionist was very friendly and took time to explain on the places to visit and about the city. I will surely recommend this to everyone who visits Lucerne.

Disliked: The point of entry to the hostel is a bit confusing... the lift is situated near the parking lot and when i tried going through the main enterance it was locked and took a while to locate the lift.

Liked: Relaxing, clean and open atmosphere. Laid back people staying at the hostel. Tasty tap water.

Disliked: Staff wasn't at the desk half the time, doors lock at 11:30pm unless you prop the door open, only 2 showers and 2 toilets for 20 people. I never had a problem showering, but I woke up after most of the tenants did.

Liked: Well equipped kitchen..The girl at the reception (Owner) friendy and willing to help in whatever way she can. This hostel is mainly for Asian travellers. which means there is no way you can get to meet people because everyone is locked with their own groups or by themselves.

Disliked: 1) Only 1 bathroom and toilet for 12 guys.Shower room too small and the drain keeps on blocking, by the time you finish your shower the water is 1 inch high. 2)Have to take of shoes. its a hostel not a bloody shrine.

Liked: It had a very relaxed atmosphere and good spacious kitchen. Building was very modern.

Disliked: There was no way to secure personal belongings in the room, only one bathroom/shower per gender (up to 12 people each for one bathroom), wasn't very hygenic (there was a dog inside sometimes).

Liked: All is good. The coffee was great. And the staff is too kind, she washed my friend's towel without notice him.

Disliked: The staff is quite strict actually, she closed the kitchen at 10pm, the computers at 11pm. For those who love to have a party at late night, maybe you just can do it outside the hostel, maybe in the city. The staff has a diploma in hotel management, maybe she knows better.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Far away from the station, in bathroom, which is shared by even 12 people, very often water suddenly turns to very hot or very cold while I did nothing. The dining room is too small for such too many people staying in thie place. Very noisy. Looks like this place is for Koreans only.

Liked: It's close to the lake and to public transport.

Disliked: It needs better sign posting. It took a lot of going around in circles and asking random people to find it. Once I was directed to it I saw it written on a sign with all the other businesses housed in the building.
