Bellpark Hostel Lucerne Reviews
Peaceful, out-of-town getaway Jul 19, 2015
Situated in the Kriens district in the suburbs of Lucerne, Hostel Bellpark’s less than ideal location in terms of its proximity to the centre is offset by the general backpacker-friendly vibe and short walking distance to the cable car that shuttles you up to the top of Mt Pilatus, the highest of the mountains that surround the city.
The pleasant lounge area, where the tasty Asian breakfast is served, has a huge flatscreen TV free computer terminals for Internet access and even a polaroid wall if you want to leave a message for the place to remember you by. There’s also a large information board and games room. The (largely Oriental) staff are friendly, albeit unavailable between 10am and 4pm when reception is closed, an inconvenience to bear in mind when arriving here.
The rooms are a little cramped, but the lockers are twice the size of the norm you get in hostel dorms. The hot shower is probably the best I’ve ever experienced in a hostel, so this place gets an extra star on its rating for that reason alone! With ‘quiet time’ designated between 11pm and 7am, this is no place for the party animal, but a welcome peaceful night’s sleep for the rest of us.
