So before I write this let me just say that I don't do this often- I usually only ever write reviews if I find an awesome place that really deserves to be full of people each night, or a poor place that i'd warn my fellow travellers from visiting. Unfortunately, Langstars falls into the latter. Firstly, it was the most... More

We did not stay at the hostel, but visited the bar, which, at first sight, had a really cool vibe. The live band was great and the ladies working behind the bar were friendly and helpful. Then enter a bar man (may have been manager/owner) who proceeded to try to get my girlfriend to pay to use the toilets (he... More

This evening a bunch of German fans was partying in front of the hostel after winning a world champion ship game. We asked money to use our toilet or to buy a drink. His girlfriend was pretty drunk and not telling me with one word, that she was buying drinks at the bar before. But she asked me who I... More

I stayed in the 12-bed mixed dorm for two nights for 95 CHF total. As with everything else in Switzerland, the price is a bit on the costly side but still remains one of the cheapest options in Zurich. They take a 20 CHF deposit upon check-in (at the bar, which doubles up as the reception) for the key token... More

For a couple of nights this hostel is fine, I was very lucky to have a room with en-suite bathroom and kitchen area, this was part of the new complex Langstars have recently got, there's no WiFi but that's available for free in the bar area, beds were comfortable with massive duvets, there's no lockers though, so you'll have to...

I stayed here as part of my working-trip to Switzerland. The bedding was clean, but I recall having red spots on my arms and legs a few days after arriving in the hostel (potentially bed-bug bites, although this is not definite). The hostel is located along "Langstrasse", a street which divides opinion. Some feel this is lively, and has lots... More

not a bad location. The street is probably the dirtiest in Zurich. The beding sinks!.on the other hand, the staff are really friendly and helpful and the freedrinks are great (although the main sellers seem to be smartly priced?) Not a bad hotel if you really want something rock bottom.
