Friendly staff, great breakfast, clean...everything perfect. Very good price comparatively to other hostels. The location is just wonderful...Across the lake :) The only reason that I don't give 5/5 stars is that unfortunately the WiFi didn't work in my room and that the train is also a bit loudly...but cmon...2 things just not so important ! I recommend it and...

Stayed for 2 nights with a friend and would definitely recommend the hostel for anyone who wants a comfortable, clean and affordable place to stay. Wifi is available at common area. Hostel's location is nearby a beautiful castle overlooking the beautiful lake. Parking space is available. Staff are fantastic. Would definitely come back.

We were a family of five and got our own room. It was a little cramped but very clean and the communal toilets and showers were also lovely. The food at breakfast was fresh, if not hugely varied. It was simple and plentiful.

Was great to be cued in by Christine on all the necessary and important stuff about places to go and how I could use the Riviera card (issued free) to get around Montreux, and places like Glion, Vevey, and Caux, and the Chillon Chateau by the lake. Room and shared bathrooms were as clean as clean can be! Bed was...

I stayed only one night. The Hostel is not located in the City Centre. You can take a bus or train to stop at the station which is near the Hostel. I suggest the bus, just 5-6 stops and then you can walk 5-8 min. to the Hostel. However, the location is quite close to Chillon Castle. You can walk...

Lovely clean hostel not even a minutes walk from the lake. As per a lot of the hostels you have to make your own bed. The rooms are modern, clean and well maintained. The hostel was busy but not noisy. The breakfast was plentiful, serve your self. The hostel is only a few seconds walk from the lake, it took...

I stayed for one night. First, the hostel is not in the city center. But it is one the way from city center to Chillon Castle. Lake Leman is right next to the hostel and you can enjoy the view as long as you want. Second, rooms are very new and clean. Bed and bedding stuff are very good and...

First off, this hostel is actually at the edge of Montreux, making for approx 30 minute walk from the station. This is a nice journey though, with most of the walk alongside the lake's edge on the promenade. When you arrive you get a Wi-Fi code and your Montreux Riviera Card - a benefit that bumped my review up one...

it's half an hour's walk from the main train station to the hostel. a long walk, yes, but it's definitely worthwhile, even with your luggages because the walk is along the lake and the views are amazing. the hostel itself is besides the lake and you can appreciate the beautiful of the lake at dawn and dusk.

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”
