Once of the only bargains I got in Switzerland :) Went on a trip for fun to Switzerland by myself when I had a surprise vacation week from work. Decided on Lausanne because of the city size (not too big) and the amount of things to do in the area. Loved this hostel, it was clean and quiet. Location was great for Lausanne, however I would turn in early at night (8-9pm) since I was flying solo in Switzerland and felt a little vulnerable in the neighborhood. The front desk was very helpful, she was very patient with my French (I try to speak as little English as possible there). They had nice amenities, such as computers (1 euro for 10 or 15 minutes) and a well-kept kitchen and sitting area. The payphone was in the stairwell, which wasn't the best because it echoed, and I felt bad making calls late at night to home. Sleep quality was good, but it was my first experience sharing a room, which typical for a hostel involved people coming & going at all hours of the night, including someone checking in around 2 or 3 in the morning. Nothing beyond the hostel realm, though!!
Would definitely suggest it for anyone looking for a reasonable stay in Lausanne, and would definitely suggest Lausanne as being a little gem in Switzerland.
