Hotel Montarina & Backpackers Hostel, Lugano: 206 reviews and 5 photos

  At the pool at Hotel Montarina
by argentia

The hostel is in the basement of the hotel and is made of 3 large dorm rooms and one small bathroom for everyone to share. The beds are large and fairly comfortable. Each bed has it's own large locker (you'll need a 2 SFr coin as a deposit) and a lamp. Access to the hotel is locked at night so each dorm room has direct access outside. The showers cannot be used after 11pm. Sheets not included, so bring a sleeping bag or sheet. Excellent location though!

Unique Qualities: You can use the pool at the hotel next door. And there is a small, but well equipped kitchen too.
