I'm not a big fan of Airbnb for various reasons, but there are certainly options to book through them in Switzerland. Switzerland is indeed expensive, but it will be doable if you make the right choices. In Lugano, for example, guests of official hotels/hostels will receive a free Ticino Ticket for unlimited traveling by train/bus and discounted traveling on other modes of transport. However, if you book an Airbnb accommodation you may not get it. So if you save at all on accommodation you'll spend more on day trips.
For Lugano specifically you could take a look at the Montarina hostel. It is affordable and right next to the train station so it's easy to get around. The other pages I linked to in my previous post offer quite a lot of good low budget accommodation in other towns. Even more tips on saving money are here.
