Less Youth Hostel, More Elderly Hostel
This was a very disappointing end to a long trip around Europe. The staff were pretty unwelcoming on the whole, and twice gave me directions that were such laughable long-cuts I ended up ignoring them, once I wished to go to the American Memorial and Cemetery a couple of miles east. I was told I had to go all the way to the west of the city to get the bus all the way back through the city and past the hostel again, this was just awful advice. As a backpacker the hostel had absolutely zero atmosphere, there is no real bar, just a cafeteria that closes fairly early, you can't play pool of table tennis after 10pm, and there is little to do in the evenings which doesn't require a long walk uphill. There is also no internet access in the rooms which for a hostel of this size is just strange. The majority of the guests also seem to be families or school groups, a backpackers worst nightmare.

Average at best
Wi-Fi access was only available in the reception/cafe, not in any of the bedrooms. There was city-wide Wi-Fi (not free) but the signal to that dropped about 3 minutes walk from the hostel. There were no power sockets next to the beds. It was £20 per night but it included breakfast (06:30 to 09:00) and you got about £1.50 back when you left the hostel.

Clean, efficient and great value but lacks travel vibe
This hostel is more like a hotel. It is clean and very efficiently run by the staff and offers a great value in a generally expensive city. It has an awesome breakfast buffet. It is in a great location offering an easy walk to most everything you would want to see in the city. It is very institutional and feels like a hotel. It does not have a travelers vibe and the front desk staff really do not interact with travelers except for checking them in. It would be great if they had someone that organized events for travelers and encouraged people to interact. Perhaps they do more of this in the summer season. The restaurant in the hostel has really good food at a great price. As long as there are no Stag or Doe parties which they do allow it is pretty quiet.

You've seen it all before
it's a normal HI. the en-suite rooms were clean, security was tight, it has no kitchen, an expensive bar/cafe, and average breakfast. the location is perfect for sightseeing and going around the old town, take the bus from the train station. it's nothing special and if this city had another hostel (an independent one), i'd probably stay there.

Modern with a good atmosphere
The staff were a little flustered because some guest was complaining that they didn't speak spanish at a hosteling international place! Seeing as these guys spoke french, german, english, letzebuergsch, and in some cases, dutch and italian this seemed a little silly and this guy would have a fit if he went to the U.K. or Australia! Breakfast was good, room was clean, good bathroom, very modern. Security was good with key card access. Bit of a walk to station, but the area is nice to walk around. Recommend it.

A nice hostel with a few drawbacks
Clean, modern rooms. Motion sensor lights in the bathroom would turn off at inconvenient times though. Great, big breakfast. Terrible laundry facilities -- the dryer refused to dry our clothes after almost two hours. Very expensive Internet, too. Overall, a nice hostel with a few drawbacks.

  As already said by others, it is large, very clean, and safe (chip card lockers for each room), the people at the reception are reliable, therefore no complaint. And it is the only hostel in Luxembourg city, located centrally to the tourist features, therefore there is no (payable) alternative, and sometimes it may be booked out due to larger groups. However, I have known this hostel before they have renovated it some years ago, therefore I was a bit disappointed. It definitely had more charm and was cosier before, though not as modern as now. And in former times there was a self-catering kitchen downstairs that does no longer exist. The restaurant is rather expensive, so better go out for some pubs nearby (in Clausen, just a few minutes walk).
