The hostel is very good located in the bars district of Zurich, which is in a walking distance from the main station. Rooms were OK and the staff is friendly. Everyday they offer you a free drink at the bar and live music which is really nice!

I had a good time at Langstars, the staff treated me well, and I liked the hospitality. The area is nice if you enjoy nightlife, and the hostel promotes local bands and integration with the guests through concerts and free-beer vouchers.

At the outset, let's keep in mind that this is a "Hostel" and not a hotel. Hence, I will apply parameters of a hostel for this review. I booked this hotel online for a weekend backpack visit of Zurich, informed the front desk in advance that I will reach earlier (check in starts from 3.00 PM). The hostel was about... More

Lots of restaurants, bars right outside and coop (big grocery store) has everything food wise is less than minute away. Check in: is right at the bar,... More

I came to visit a new girlfriend in Zurich and was kicked out of her place after visiting her parents and discovering thst she was pregnant from someone else, so I needed a place to sleep and recoil. The service is moderately friendly and the wifi is excellent. However, if you are here to sleep and not party you should... More

Maybe it is not the best joice to stay in a dorm with 12 People, after you left your girlfriend. If you had a bad day don't blame the hostel for it. And yes, Friday and Saturday we are a party hostel and although famous for this. Ask for earplugs when you check - in. The shower turn cold after... More

I enjoyed my stay at the hostel however, the mixed dorms were crammed....and the female dorm was extra $....not cool. I would stay here again but when I have less bags with me. Otherwise the hostel is in walking distance to the lake and old town. I really enjoyed my stay.

You have a store and two bars near there. Also a coop. The bus stops just in front of the lobby. It was a little expensive for being a hostel, but the staff and the bar are cool. The hostel entrance is outside the bar, I was pretty upset with that. Also, the "balcony" in the first floor is just... More

I stayed just one night with my wife and even though we were in a 12 mixed room everything went well. The staff is really nice and friendly, they even gave us two free drinks from the bar and chocolate. Everything was very clean, well explained, good wifi and they also have breakfast included in the price!

It was an okay choice for my time in Zurich. The pictures on the website made it look amazing, but it didn’t really live up to what I expected. The hostel is well located within the city but neighbourhood is borderline dodgy. This said, the rooms are accessed through a different door than the café/bar entrance and are very secure.... More

I went to Zurich on a whim in November and realized very quickly it was the off season. I stayed here for two nights and got in after 11pm on the first night. Easy 10 min walk from the train station, but don't follow the directions they give you as they are impossible to follow (the information people at the... More
