"Showers are spacious and the breakfast buffet has a good selection. You are right on the lake so the area itself is very pretty. There is a personal lamp and power outlet on each bed which is always handy. The city tax…"

08 July 2012 Rebecca would recommend this property

Liked: The dinning hall was very jazzy which matches up with Montreux's renowned Jazz festival. The room was clean as were the shower and toilet facilities.

Disliked: The lighting was quite annoying as it switched itself off after a few minutes - great to save electricity, not so great when you have shampoo in your hair, razor in hand and you have to grope for the light switch!! The rooms weren't easy to find either, the numbers were small in the corner of a square picture of some kind of athletic activity. Yellow on white is not eye friendly.

Liked: cleanliness amount of bathrooms was good

Disliked: the reception is only open between 8am-10am and then is closed til 5pm thus you cannot check into the hostel until 5pm and then you have to check out at 10am, so if youre only here for one night its hardly worth it. you have about 12 hours here. this was beyond ridiculous, especially when you could here staff talking and laughing behind the closed counter.... breakfast is only from 7am-9am another ridiculous thing about this hostel. its quite eery, not a lot of people, feels a bit like a school camp alos the directions to get here are close to non exsistent - "walk along the river for 30 minutes and under the under pass".... INCREDIBLY UNHELPFUL

Liked: It's very clean and the staff is friendly. The rooms are quite spartan though. I rented a bike and got it half price, because the lady at the reception was nice.

Disliked: It's a little bit off the center and the rooms feel a bit like hospital. You can get around well with a bike, which you can rent from the hostel. The dinner served at the hostel was quite basic and only worth the money because everything is expensive in Montreux and Switzerland.

Liked: The rooms are very clean and the breakfast is good. It's right by the lake.

Disliked: The old guy at reception was very impatient, and not friendly at all. The reception hours are short. The lights by each bed did not work, which was very inconvenient since one of my roommates sleeps early and wants to turn the light off. There is only ONE outlet in the room for six people to share!! It was difficult for everyone to charge their cell phones, camera batteries and laptops. Take note of the extra fee you have to pay if you are not a member!!

Liked: Breakfast was included but there are the other cheaper hostels in Europe which provide breakfast as well.

Disliked: There are no kitchen facilities. They don't provide at least free drinkable water. Instead, there is a machine from which a tea or coffee costs CHF3!
