We had some significantly older people in our room and also noticed a lot of children in the common room which were very loud but I guess no age restrictions. Great hostel otherwise, the lockers were full length, wifi fast. Very new looking hostel nice and clean

Excellent: location, service by friendly staff, spotless and clean. Really enjoyed very pleasant stay there. Liked the lay out, and all the facilities offered to their guests, including the breakfast. Would recommend to all my friends.

It's located nearby the main station and good value for money. The hostel has excellent standard of service and facilities. As a solo traveller, I haven't seen such a good quality in a hostel and they have also female room which is a plus, since Switzerland is quite expensive though..

We stayed here for one night in a twin room. The room is very nice, big and clean. The seperate shower is also nice and clean. Great design. Breakfast is simple, but okay. We'll book the hostel again for sure when visiting Basel in the future for a longer period. It's situated in a nice neighborhood. Great value.

Clean, hot showers. On the plus side you get to meet fellow travellers, on the minus side, you get to hear them snore! Easy to get to from the airport, and you get free public transport for the duration of your stay.

It was OK, the price was high but we were in Switzerland, which is an expensive country. It has good and large facilities, chill room etc and the furniture is new and fashion, at least in the common zones. However, when we got there there was noone in the desk and we had to wait for 2 hours and we... More

Plus: clean toilettes, big common area and kitchen, good kitchen stuff, modern design. Minus: all rules(for instance you have to pay 80 Chf, if you loose your luggage room key. It just worths max. 5 euros.), reception is closed from 11 am to 15 pm. You can't even leave your bags because it's possible not to find anybody. A guy... More

We stayed in a private en-suite room which was very large, clean and modern, with a walk in wet room all equipped to a very high standard. in Fact the hostel is far better than a lot of hotels I've stayed at and for Basel offers very good value for money. Another bonus for us is that we could use... More
