    Nothing much to like about the "jeunotel"

    Will not go back , too much like a bunker, high windows you cannot see out of, bare floors etc everything is basic

  • Single

    cheap price. the short hair lady staff is quite friendly.

    poor breakfast. the way far from city center. the black kitchen man is very unfriendly. even impossible to borrow the bowl ! every few shared bathroom.

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was excellent. Free travel cards for duration of stay were very welcome and the travel system is easy to use and very comprehensive.

    Although away from the centre, transportation is good (you have a metro nearby and a bus stop right at the end of the street). You get a pass for free transport in Lausanne!

    First thing is that nowhere in the reservation (done here) it is mentioned that non-members of the International Youth Hostel will have to pay extra! I find it extremely disrespectful to be confronted with this upon check-in... Only a few bathrooms per floor, and the staff was unable to point me to the nearest one, in the end I was just able to find 2 showers in the entire floor (which has dozens of rooms). Some people appear to be living there, which gives the place a rather non-youth atmosphere... The breakfast is rather rudimentary/incomplete.

    Services such as Internet, pass of city bus to travel around the city, delicious breakfast

    Room heating not enough, room light not enough for reading, less warm water

    The breakfast was good

    The room was pretty plane. It is not clear why youth hostel relatively far from the center charges almost the same price for a double room as actual hotels near the center.

  • Single

    Clean and safe

    Walk 15 mins to subway but its fine

  • Single
    6.6

    The design is pretty nice and the room is big.

    A little bit expensive

  • Couple

    Good breakfast

    Not a walking distance from train station - get a bus. Additional money is charged - read whats in small letters. Bedsheets are dubious.

  • Older travelers

    It did everything it said - easy to find, good parking, quiet, close to Lake, running routes, buses/trams. The beds were comfortable and the electrics worked. Breakfast was basic but included.

    It felt tatty, concrete and utilitarian. A group of cerebral palsy guests were there at the same time as us and the venue was not at all wheelchair friendly. There were no good restaurants nearby and the YHA had a set menu for dinner, which we did not fancy.

  • Single
    7.4

    In general the room had pretty much all the basic things I needed, which I was obviously very happy about. Also it was in quiet surroundings so that nothing disturbed you when you wanted to sleep. Overall it was a good experience!

    The staff were a little bit unpolite when I experienced some problems with the card-key to the first room I was assigned. They just automatically assumed that I was the idiot being unable to open the door, when in fact it was something that was wrong with the reading-mechanism of the lock. I was however assigned another room, so they made up for their assumptions.
