Liked: 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 actually results in you getting a discount card which includes free transport in the town which is a great bonus.

Disliked: Extreme lack of mirrors: none in the bedroom, none in the toilet or shower areas near the room. Lockers are not in the room either. All the lights are on a timer, while I applaud their efforts for energy conservation there surely must be an OHS issue around having a light switch off while you're in a shower or bathroom. The cleaning lady was cleaning out the rooms prior to 10am and left the door wide open with my stuff inside. There was also a large school group (looked primary aged) who were very noisy in the early evening but all was quite during the night at least. Make sure you do not choose to walk with luggage (unless on wheels) from Montreux station, the hostel is actually about a half hr walk from there. Take the train to Territet which is the next station and only about 5mins (max) walk away.

Liked: It is halfway between the town centre and the chateau de chillon. Right on the lake with a nice view. Very clean and breakfast was great!

Disliked: Cost, wifi only works in the common areas and not in individual rooms. There is only one electrical outlet in each dorm room (6 beds!), so it was impossible to charge my electronics as everyone else was always using it.

Liked: Hostel is situated about 20min walk from the centre and 10-15min walk from the castle Chillon. When you go out of the main door you can see the Geneva Lake. Hostel staff is really nice and helpful. We have received cards for communication and discount for visitting castle. Hostel is very clean and breakfast (included in the price) is really good.

Disliked: Piotr left no negative feedback.

Liked: The property is huge and right next to the lake and Castle Chillon is only a km away.

Disliked: No kitchen available for use, very hot, train rail is right next to hostel so you hear loud fast trains passing by every 20 minutes throughout the night.

Liked: It's a long walk from the Montreux train station but it's a beautiful one so I didn't mind. Very close to the Château de Chillon and the bus station. Staff was very helpful and rooms were very clean. Showers have hot water and you have to have a keycard to get into the rooms so it felt very secure.

Disliked: Apparently if you want to eat dinner there you have to be there right when the dining room opens at 18:30. I went down at 19:00 only to find that it was locked. Also I was not given a towel with my linens. I am a heavy sleeper so the trains right outside did not bother me, but if you are a light sleeper you might want to bring earplugs. Wifi only worked in the common area. Also there is no grocery store close by.
