Standard Swiss YHA: clean, safe, cheapest accommodation around, decent wifi, free swiss breakfast (not the best by YHA standards), lockers that require a 2CHF deposit but are otherwise free, no guest kitchen, limited staff hours. The hilltop location has great views down to the city from the kitchen and the garden. The garden has plenty of seats and makes a... More

This is a typical youth hostel. The room is simple and clean. The scenery from the window is great, as it's on a hill where you can have a nice overview of the city. Although being a little bit outside the city, the location is still pretty good with tram connection. The price is not cheap based on the hostel... More

Best deal in town but swiss currency is so hard that we pay a little bit more than in paris... Make sure you buy your food at lidl or aldi otherwise its 8$ the sandwich and 15$ the big mac meal... Nice hostel meeting the standards, with free wifi, very excellent breakfast included, but on a hill so each evening... More

Must climb up the hill there is a lake... More

The reception only opens from 7:00-10:00 and 17:00-21:00. When we arrived at 15:00 there was nobody there, only other travelers lying on the couches like corpses. We went back around 18:00 to check in. By then the reception was fully functioning! The gentleman at the reception was very nice and helpful and recommended us the restaurant marketplatz, which was beyond... More

The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are kind of small and the restroom / shower are common just outside the room. We had hired a (six bed) room for 5 of us. Being on holiday and Switzerland being very expensive ( we were charged 8.2 Franks for 2 GLASSES of water during lunch at a MIGRO restaurant. Never... More
