The city of Lausanne stands on a hill and has steep, narrow streets, so strong muscles are required, particularly for the uphill climb to the cathedral, the most important Gothic monument in Switzerland. The Lausanne Youth Hostel, with its simple, pleasant, welcoming atmosphere, lies in a park-land and lake-side setting and offers hospitality designed to suit the requirements of both individual travellers and groups, at budget-friendly prices. The Lausanne welcomes visitors of all ages. Parking spaces are available outside the hostel and in the car park so visitors won't have any problem parking. The published prices include the daily membership of Swiss Youth Hostels and Hostelling International.
