    Very reasonable price. With Lucerne Card easy to visit to center of town. Staff was very kind to allow us to keep our luggage in her break.

    Mind there are no lift, if you have heavy luggage.

    The location

    The smell in the room was so bad. My sheets had blood stains

    Bed was comfy, sheets were clean. Staff was friendly and the hostel was not far from the train station.

    Only issue was the WiFi was not available upstairs. This was because the owner wanted people to come to the lounge and use the WiFi there.

    The staff was polite and nice on check-in and check-out. The location is very good, with a bus stop just outside the hostel and 15min walk to the station/centre. It is a quiet area with restaurants around. I also liked the available touristic information near the reception.

    Unfortunately, there are a lot of points that need improvement, particularly for the price paid: - The room was not very clean. Between the bed and window there was dirt and even the floor did not appear clean. The door had stains of humidity. The room had an odd smell. I opened the window, but it did not improve. During the night there are mosquitos, so windows must be closed. - The shared shower was very dirty the night I arrived, but next day was cleaned. - The room was very cold, without any extra blankets or heating - the heating is actually something that is mentioned in my reservation, but was not in this room. - The bathroom must be one of the worst I have ever used: it is a shared bathroom for the whole floor with one shower, one sink and one toilet only. The shower does not have a door, and you only have a curtain, so it is not private! The shower head has no support. There is no light in the shower, so you shower in the dark really. The toilet stall, although with a door and a lock, is still not very private as is open on the top. So one person can be peeing/pooping, while someone is showering and it's all a bit exposed! - Wi-Fi only in common lounge and reception area, not in the rooms. - Towels are charged extra. - You need to take the sheets to your room and make your own bed. This annoyed me a little bit, as the pictures show the towels and sheets in the rooms already, and there is no mention that you make your own bed. So you go up the stairs with your bags, sheets, towels, keys, all by yourself. And at check-out you must bring it all back. I had to go up and down twice, as it was impossible for me to take and bring it all in one go. - The pictures in seem to show renovated rooms, but the one I was in did not look like the pictures at all. - While the area is quiet, the hostel itself is very noisy. The stairs creek loudly each time a guest walks in or out.
