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!

Liked: The location right on the water. The smallness and colours and decore of the whole place. Sufficient layout and number of bathrooms and toilets. The staff were very friendly and informative about the montreux and the wider area-and gave examples for varied tastes. Decent breakfast. Excellent value for money.

Disliked: Lockers were outside the room and a fair way down the corridor. The lightin and showers ran on timers...that cut out very quickly!!

Liked: Free breakfast is always a plus, showers were clean (as was the hostel generally), it's a gorgeous walk along the lake to the castle.

Disliked: Customer service left something to be desired. Like all HI hostels, it doesn't have a lot of character and there's nowhere to really relax, watch a movie, etc. There's only one "computer" which is a bizarre internet terminal thing you have to stand up at and pay 6 franc an hour to use.

Liked: The ease in finding the place.

Disliked: There was nothing good about this property. You could hear doors slamming on other floors, had to bring your own sheets up to your room and then bring them back down in the morning when checking out. When carrying luggage up 3 flights of stairs ( no lift) you don't need the added burden of carrying linens as well. For the price of a dorm.. i highly recommend travellers find elsewhere.

Liked: Like all Swiss, HI affiliated hostels, this place runs like a well oiled machine. It's spotlessly clean, the breakfast is excellent and free, the rooms all have free lockers and reading lights, and the bathrooms are pristine. The location could be better as its a fair bit away from Montreaux itself but its not a far busride and its a nice walk if you do it without luggage - the castle is also nearby and thats a nice walk away too.

Disliked: I'm still unused to the lack of friendly feeling and character in Swiss hostels and this is one of them. The reception is closed from 10am - 5pm so you can't check in during the day. There's no wifi and only one Internet terminal. The staff take forever to assist and even then aren't very forthcoming on travel tips, they are there solely to set you up for the night.

Liked: Clean, safe

Disliked: Location was far from the city centre, had to walk along steep slopes/stairs but that's what you get for a mountainous region near the lake (great view by the way) No lift, and reception was open only from 7.30am to 10am, 5pm to 10pm

Liked: The hostel was nicely located just overlooking the lake and fairly close to the chateux de chillon, a bit of a walk from montreux itself. The staff were friendly and there was a safe and relaxed atmosphere! However, there was no free airport pickup as described on the hostelbookers site!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
