Good value, quiet location
Stayed here for three nights at new year. Facilities were very good, and the building was very modern and spacious. The room was small and basic, but very warm and with a comfortable bed. Location was a little out of the way, altough there was a bus stop two minutes away, and a metro stop a ten minute (uphill) walk away, along with some bars, cafes, takeaways and shops. The buffet breakfast was very basic continental fare. The only issue I had with my stay was that check-in seemed to take a very long time. This was especially surprising as I received an email prior to my stay asking for me to provide my details, in order to speed up the check-in process on arrival. Overall though, I was happy with my stay. Although the location may be further from town than some people would like, the facilities were very good for the price

Decent food and cheaper than restaurant options in town. Friendly staff. Rooms in good condition. Lights are quite dim, which I guess helps when other people are sleeping. Closets in rooms are missing locks or rings to use a padlock.

Would recommend !
I had a single room with shared bathroom. The bed was comfortable and clean. I was facing the inner building where people gathered in the evenings so it could get loud, but tolerable. The hostel is a far from the train station, and a 6 minute walk to the nearest bus or 10 minutes to the nearest metro station. breakfast was what you could expect from a hostel, nothing exceptional, but it did the job. Didn’t have any wifi connection issues.

The staff was quite helpful during my stay. However, facing the heat wave in Europe, there was no air conditioning or fan in the hostel. My room at the top level was very hot and I couldn't sleep well during my stay. I think this is the problem not just in the hostel, but in most of buildings in Europe.

Reasonable hostel. Can't expect much as this is just a hostel only. Room and bathroom are small. Nice lobby and restaurant. Only provide a microwave and kettle at a small corner. If there is a communal kitchen, will be great.

Not your average Hostel
The location was great, and you get a lot for the price. Service was super friendly and helpful. No AC in the rooms so it was a little warm. Loved how close they are to the lake and running trails.

도난사고 후기 호텔협조에 감사합니다.
여기서 도난사고를 당했습니다. 제가 자던방 옆 룸메이트가 11시부터 3시까지는 청소로 나가야 한다고 하더군요. 저는 너무 피곤해서 그냥 있으려 했는데 자꾸나가야한다고 해서 잠껀 씻으러 간 사이 (욕실은 방 밖에 있습니다.) 제 가방에서 현금 약 2500유로를 훔쳐갔습니다. 복대를 잠깐 풀렀는데 그사이 가져갔네요. (방에 정원으로 나갈수 있는 문이 또 있었는데 그쪽으로 도망갔습니다.) 어느 호스텔이던 도난주의를 해야 하는게 맞습니다. 나에게 상냥하게 대하는 사람을 주의 했어야 했는데 ..지금생각해보니 이상한 점들이 많았네요. 이건 제 실수 입니다. 돈이야 마음이 아프지만 무었보다 더 놀란이유가.... 밤사이 도둑놈 옆에서 잤다니 심장이 떨리네요. 사고 직후 바로 리셉션에 말했을때 리셉션 직원은 매우 협조해 주었고 소매치기의 정보와 씨씨티비 자료를 경찰에 제공해 주었습니다. 덕분에 무사히 경찰에 신고 할 수 있었습니다. 차분하게 대처해 주시고 협조해 주신것에 매우 감사합니다. 다만 이런 큰 호스텔에서 이런일이 있었다는게 믿기지 않습니다. 좋은 대책을 마련해 주시면 좋을것 같습니다.

Un peu excentré mais facilement accessible par le bus ou trolley. La nuit, il faut aimer marché ou utiliser les applis. Petit déjeuner buffet varié et complet, fruit frais. Pas de casier dans les chambres. Deux douches par secteurs, cela peut être peu. Deux toilettes par secteur, aucunes lunettes ne tenaient. Reste une bonne solution pour loger pas trop cher sur Lausanne.

Bello nel suo insieme
Carina la struttura e cordiali i proprietari, unico appunto la colazione priva di cornetti fette biscottate o roba che piace a noi europei, avevano solo un po di riso cucinato con salse credo o peperoni, di mattina non mi sembra una grande idea.
