Welcome to our hostel

Situated near the banks of Lake Geneva, our hostel just outside the pretty city of Lausanne offers groups a great mix between city break and activity adventure.

A short bus ride to the centre of the city (don’t forget to pick up your free travel card from reception) groups will be able to marvel at Switzerland’s most imposing Gothic Cathedral. Or visit one of the 24 museums which are largely within walking distance of the centre. Top of the picks is often the Olympic Museum – which is the only one in the world.

If you want to cover more ground then hiring a bike is easy in Lausanne. There are various hop on / hop off points as well as great routes - the bike ride from Lausanne to Vevey passes, Lake Geneva and the Alps.

But don’t forget there is loads to do at the hostel. Just two minutes away from the water of Lake Geneva, the hostel staff are there to help groups get the most out of this superb location.

Want to organise some sailing lessons? Then the staff can help. Windsurfing? Staff can organise this too.

And with a fully equipped restaurant and kitchen on site, there’s no need to go far if you need something to eat and drink.

So whatever your reason for visiting Lausanne, you will be guaranteed a warm welcome at our hostel here.
