We stayed at this hostel for 3 nights. We had a double room, with a sink and a room which was not overlooked. Staff were friendly and helpful, especially with parking, which is public, but you can get a parking permit from the hostel with a small deposit. Breakfast is included in the price along with a Swiss card, which...

Very clean, quiet and simple hostel. for the price, you get a clean room ,clean showers, clean bedding, breakfast and free bust travel, cant complain at all. No real common room to speak of, only ever slept at the hostel. bit of a scenic walk from main station, but an enjoyable walk. the hostel was right on the lake and...

Great location, right next to the lake. Its quite a walk from the train station but you'll definitely enjoy it. Chillon castle is just 15mins away from the hostel. Territet bus stop and the train station is just 5mins from the hostel. Even the tram(funicular) which you can take to go up the hill to Glion is right behind the...

We opted to stay here for the location. I was dreading a "youth" hostel, but found other adults staying there as well. It seems priced high for what it is, but then again, it's the location. It was clean, it was not very comfortable, but it was better than we expected. It was well run, the desk staff were very...

It's located about 1.4kms away from the train station and information centre. Walk along the lake from information centre for about 20 odd minutes without any detour and you will find this located by the lake. The check-in is a bit late, starts at 5pm, i had reached there before 12 noon and found no one. They have lockers where...

Brilliant location right by the lake. Beautiful walk along the lake from the train station (which is also minutes from the lake). Took me and my 7 year old daughter about 50 minutes to walk it as there was so much to look at! The staff are fantastic - so friendly and helpful both at reception and in the kitchen....

As many people have said it was a long walk along the lake to reach the hostel from the main train station. We arrived at 10am on a summer morning and took a slow stroll as we knew the check in is not open till 5pm. there is a big locker storage which you will need to pay 2 euros/franc...

This seems to be one of the few budget options in Montreux but it's still got everything you need. Spacious rooms, quiet location, lots of toilets and showers. Only drawback is the 15-20 min walk to the centre of Montreux, we had bikes so it was OK.

Montreux is beautiful and shouldn't be missed. With that said, this hostel lacked in many categories. Service was bad, no kitchen to cook, no laundry, wifi was only available in a small and uncomfortable room. The positives being you get free public transport with a Riviera card and its very close to the Chateau de Chillon. (a must see)

We got a room here during the Montreux Jazz Festival, which seems ages ago now! Accommodation in the area is expensive, so the hostel was a more realistic option, plus being British we didn't want to pay any more than we needed to! It was just as I expected from a hostel, it was basic but clean & functional. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Being up to date is (virtually) everything in Montreux, the most chic spot, full of tradition, on Lake Geneva. And the youth hostel is up to date. You just have to be here! The dining room jazzy, the seating corner classic, the foyer rustic, the day room busy. French esprit combined with sophisticated flair, makes many hearts beat faster in Montreux. Just like the leisure possibilities on the "Waadtlander Riviera" - oh-la-la! ... more   less

“The location is a 7--10 min walk from the Territet bus stop down a lot of stairs, so AVOID if U got heavy bags to carry. They have 6 large coin operated lockers (CHF 2) to store bags after chk out. U shd block these in advance if U need to store ur bags, or they will be taken by others. U can use the large breakfast room or common room to heat & eat your own dinner. The chargeable hostel dinner is too early @6pm”
