The family-run Locanda Castagnola is located close to the Villa Favorita and just one mile from Lugano’s city center. It offers a fine restaurant and free Wi-Fi in the entire hotel.
Score from 487 reviews Very good
Convenient location (near train station), cleanliness, washing machine, nice view, balcony (we were in a private double room)
Small room (but that's probably normal for that price in Lugano)
the location is very near to the train station, the staff is very helpful, a clean bathroom
the rooms is very small, and difficult to sleep in it, no lift so we had to carry our luggage up to last floor expensive for a hostel
Hotel lies near the station. I arrived late (past 11pm), but there was someone who arrived after a short call to hand me the keys. Breakfast, which was quite good, was being served at the hotel across the little park. Free Wifi and TV.
Cleanliness in the bathroom could have been a bit better! The station is nearby, and there are trains during the night every hour or so, which I didn't like too much.
Located very close to the Lugano train station and a short walk from there to town. Friendly and helpful staff staff, kitchen and common area also.
Can hear trains passing during the night.
Location!!!friendly receptionist, nice common eating place
Bit tooo much 18 people in one room...but every one was tolerant and tried to be as quite in the morning and evenenng as possible.
Nice big room.
No curtains on the window. No kettle in the room and the kitchen appeared to consist of a microwave. Very thin walls so if your neighbours decide to 5:30 am is the perfect time to have sex then you get to hear it all!
This must be the best youth hostel in the world! Good sized double room with balcony overlooking the lake... Cheap, perfect location, beautiful, outdoor swimming pool, Palm trees, all for chf 140 a night. Superb value for money!
No lift to the top floor, so if you've heavy luggage you better be fit!!
Really great location overlooking Lugano, lovely atmosphere.
The showers were a bit unhandy if you want to keep your clothes dry.
The staff were really friendly and bathrooms really clean.
The location was perfect so close to the train. The views were beautiful. The staff helpful and informative. The rooms clean and really lovely and well planned. The pool was a great bonus though it was a bit chilly for us at this time of year. Another inexpected plus were the college students staying in the hostel. They were friendly and fun to talk with. We opted for breakfast at the hotel next door and glad we did. It was so convenient and what a lovely place to start the day.
It was a little overcast while we were there. Also the funicular from town to the station was in a two year renovation. Of course none of that is under the Montarinas control. Basically we cant think of a single detractor.
Cleaniness. Location close to the train station. Huge lockers for storage. Staff are very helpful and knowledgable. Excellent hostel. A fantastic place to stay and visit the local sights of Lugano. Would not hesitate to recommend.
Hygiene: no soap at hand basins Kitchen not open until 07:30, was a rush to catch an early for our hike.
Beautiful grounds with use of big swimming pool from 9am. Private rooms were on a separate floor to dorms. Ensuite bedroom for 2 with balcony was equivalent to a 3 star hotel. Decent sized fridge but no A/C. Housekeeping tidied room & changed fluffy white towels changed daily. 10-15 minute walk to Lake Lugano, be prepared for steep hill. Huge dining room with big balcony overlooking grounds & view surrounding mountains.
Balcony overlooked busy train station and road. Window wasn't very sound proof so sleep was broken by screeching trains & woken early by traffic. Very small kitchenette was well equipped but difficult to share with others.
Nice room, setting in the park, pool, and breakfast room.
A bit of an uphill walk from the center of town. It will be nice when the funicular us working again.
excellent location close to railway station, clean hotel, friendly staff, cosy atmosphere.I would definitely recommend it to someone wanted to visit Lugano for a few days
ping-pong field, swimming pool, location
breakfast not included
Location was perfectly next to railway station and a short walk down to the center of the town and lakeside. Nice pool area and a really good breakfast for 15CHF.
Excellent location and nice staff.
Number of bathrooms is not enough.
Right across street from train station. The staff are very accommodating. The guests keep to themselves so no disturbances and the pool is amazing!
The bathrooms werent as clean as they should have been. There are only two bathrooms or the entire hostel area.
- beautiful garden full of palm trees - swimming pool - friendly staff
The location right at the train station is rather unfortunate - it can be very loud even at night. I was not able to sleep without earplugs. Also, dorms are rather full and loud.
there is no indication showing the way to go to the hostel as it is up on the hill, i spent a long time to find out where is the entrance. people very noisy in other rooms and keep shouting day and night. two beds are placed stick next to each other, very strange to sleep with someone you don't know next to you
The hostel has a great location next to the railway station. The swimming pool is included even for hostel guests. The bunk beds are comfortable and stable. The Wifi connection is free, fast and stable. There are lockers available for bags but unfortunately these are too small for long suitcases/rucksacks.
The kitchen for hostel guests is very small. There is a lack of plugs for mobile/tablet chargers next to the bunk beds and in the dining room. The dining room closes very early at night. Smoking of guests outside the hostel rooms meant that smoke would get into the room. Plus guests were quite noisy outside talking late outside the hostel room.
Nicely furnished rooms, very friendly staff. The locker in the bedroom is very handy. There is even a washing machine and a dryer.
As there is no shower curtain and no place to put your clothes in the shower cabin, it's a bit difficult to avoid things getting wet...
We stayed in a private room with bathroom and the stay was excellent. The bed is very comfortable and room clean. Excellent location next to train station and 10 min walk to city center
