Bunk bends, away from centre,
The bathrooms were ok
It is far from the city center It is too dark at night
Most beautiful hostel I've ever been to! Very helpful staff as well! Would definitely recommend this hostel to all travellers!
The facilities are fine for a hostel. The garden is beautiful
Internet is difficult. The place is driven by many people, each one has a different opinion. Breakfast is a bit expensive for the offer
Very good hotel for family. You can coke your. Oun mills. 10Min by car from lugano lake,
The gate for the hotel close at 10p.m. after that you nead parking outside and paid for that.
The hostel has many facities, including a pool, breakfast buffet is good enough for its cost. The shower and toilet are inside the room which is very convenient for me!
It is far from train station and central, so all attraction spots must be arrived by bus. The pool is too small for swim, but it only keep u in water and help to cold down yourself in summer.
Private room nicely furnished and equipped
The lower bank bad was much harder and squeaky then the single bad
What a beautiful place, room is simple but has eeverything you need and what a beautiful garden! We really enjoyed our stay.
Garden and pool was lovely. With good weather you ignore the room and stay outside all day.
1 tiny shower outside without any practicality or comfort for about 20people. Plus, our room was really old, uncomfortable and cold. Also there was a kitchenette, but without the keys to open the drawers etc. we could not use it!
overall it is very good
very strict check-in time
Quite neighborhood. Clean room. Nice garden, beautiful pool. free parking. An ideal economic lodging choice for groups who travel with car.
A bit far from downtown, 5-7 min up-hill walk from bus station, its a pain for people who carry big luggage. Inconvenient for night life, maybe good for families though.
Very neat, Good instruction and service
it was ok for the price we paid. there are a lot of great facilities around for families.
if you're not a member in some hostel international club you have to pay 6 euros more for each person. and you only discover it when you're there. also, you are expected to bring your linens down to the laundery and wash your own dishes at breakfast... not exactly what we expected after paying more than 100 euros per night.
We are really impressed by this hostel, great territory, clean rooms and tasty breakfast! I also think it is a good idea to separate girls and boys))) There is a kitchen where you could prepare a breakfast or else. I would definitely come back there! Well done guys!!!
The pool and gardens
clean, green places, swimming pool, facilites, stuff
a bit far from city center and lake
