noisy and expensive
someone is making a lot of money here out of budget tourists and its not the guy on the desk. if you calculate number of people per floor and the single shower and basin provided and compare that with what a hotel can make in the same floor space then this is where the ideals of the hostel has gone wrong. so what if its near the lion monument and the bus stop?
all those groups trooping up to look at the stone relief commemorating the defense of french royalty against the revolutionaries by swiss merceneries. youd think theyd want to keep it quiet. and besides, everywhere is near a bus stop.
i dont know if it was clean as i was too exhausted to inspect. but i know i wasnt given a towel and that the room was so incredibly loud from the traffic on zurichstrasse that it made it completely stressful. small kitchen for all those guests. and internet 2 franks per 15 mins. mad. i dont expect the guy on the desk to give me tourist information. hes probably not even getting paid.
i have not tried other hostels in lucerne but dont chose by location. lucerne is a small place so everywhere is walkalble or a short bus journey, and you might get to see something more interesting than the lion monument.
you dont pay the price quoted online because they add a city tax. just added to the sense of profiteering from less well off travellers.
incidently, racist remarks on some of these review sites eg "there were indian families there" are completely abhorent and should be remove by the moderators.
Directions: bus line one direction maihof
