It is a great option as it is close to the train station. Just exit the front of the station (facing McDonald's) and turn left down the street into a tunnel and take the first right onto Rue Epinettes. You can quickly see the hostel, but the entrance is up a steep driveway. The area can be somewhat sketchy at night, however, as there is a porn shop nearby.
The views from some of the rooms are stunning since the hostel sits on the side of a hill facing the Ouchy lake shore. Bedrooms are fairly basic, with white walls and bunk beds, but the bathrooms are well kept.
