Very nice hostel, poor location
The hostel is big and spacious, with well-tended facilities. The location is out of the way, in a residential neighborhood about 30 minutes from town.

Not recommended by our bus driver
Our Tour Bus Driver (from Czech Republic) used this property for his accommodations for one night - he reported to us that the place was a ‘catastrophe’.

Great hostel!
This is a hostel not a 5-star hotel. With that said, I had an amazing time staying in the female dormitory (which happened to be empty during the time I was there! - end of October). The front desk employees were very helpful and informative. I got to rent a bike with a helmet and it wasn't too expensive. They let you rent for a half a day or a full day. Since Uber doesn't operate in Lucerne, the front end girl helped me book a taxi back to Zurich airport and got me a good rate. Breakfast was great. Nothing special just an open buffet continental breakfast which is cool. You'll notice that people check in to this hostel with different ages (even families came with kids!)

Good value for budget stay
Hostel is clean and but a bit far from bus stop to city center. The walk to bus stop with luggage or late night is not really pleasant. or hostel should also indicate the booking bed room is mixed or one gender so one is not surprised by another person opening the door late after 10pm.

Overall are good
Reception open at 7 am, however, we arrived at 5am, therefore, we stay outside about 2 hours. The outside weather are very cold. However, at 7am, everything are run smoothly for checkin.
