The place is difficult to locate as there are no proper signs to help direct guests. There are no bedsheets nor towels provided in the rooms. The floors could be cleaner, the corridors smell of smoke... More

Instead of taking the bus to the hostel, we walked along the lake and recovered from our journey in the sun, fountain playing, ducks bobbing. The hostel is a couple of blocks in from the lake behind the Schutzengel train station, look up alleyways for the sign. But worth finding, airy and clean, the best breakfast and Sabrina at the...

It's located in a modern building at walking distance from the lake and the old town. I took a bed in a 6-bed room which was comfortable and very quiet, Each bed has its own light and electric socket. The lavatory has a drier, so you don't risk to leave with wet clothes, if you wash them Free WiFi in... More

Very well located Youth Hostel in Zug (close to a train station and close to the beach !). The rooms are very well maintained. Ideal place for family with kids with a good breakfast.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In 1435 and in 1887, an entire section of the town sank into the lake, enticed by the legendary Sea Maiden of Zug. The only things sinking into the lake today, however, are the rays of the setting sun. But you're quite entitled to be enticed by images of sunsets or the water as you approach the youth hostel, just two minutes from the lake shore. And in Zug today, nobody could possibly sink into boredom, because Zug is the place to be, whether you're a rollerblade fan or a caving enthusiast. ... more   less
