I needed a place for my son (25) to stay while he visited me.They put him in a single room that gave him his space and peace of mind. He had a great time, met the local crowd, who showed him how the Swiss party. The staff was friendly and helpful

We enjoyed the Crossbox. Clean, quiet rooms, just a block or two fm. the train station. It is a shower down the hall, bring your own towel (or rent one for 5 Fr.s) sort of place but the price was right, the rooms handsome and the staff friendly.
