Nice hostel, nice staff, really nice breakfast! Clean and with a lot of bathrooms and showers! I got the shared room with four beds, they have lockers inside the rooms and even a sink/ mirror. Quite handy! The location isn't the best one and the price is a bit expensive. However, everything in Switzerland is expensive. (No wifi on the... More

We had a rough time getting to the hostel when we arrived at zurich hb station around 8pm on a rainy night. Apparently you can take tram 7 that takes you to a tram stop 7 to 10 min away from the hostel. But we couldnt find the right tram and ended up taking an expensive taxi instead. Once we... More

When you get there it is a fantastic place with a superb buffet breakfast but it is not in the easiest part of town to find. I took the tram from the train station and followed the directions which were far from clear. I turned left off the number 7 tram instead of right and went completely the wrong way.... More

The staffs are nice and helpful, rooms arw clean, reasonable price (for Zurich), and the breakfast is great. The location is not very convenient though, although you can walk to the closest tram station in 5-10 minutes, given the expensive public transportation in Zurich, we usually walk to Enge where we could hire a bike for free, and it takes...

For Zurich is a really expensive city, a YH is a good alternative. The rooms are big enough and you have a locker and a lavatory on your room. The toilets and the showers are new and clean. The lobby is a nice place tocommunicate with other travellers or to check your plans for the next day, for there is... More

We stayed in a 4 bed room with it's own shower/wc for 4 days in July 2014. The hostel is quite a bit out of the city center but our son was doing the Zurich Ironman and the hostel proved to be a popular place for fellow competitors from all round the world as it's quite close to the athletes'...

The Zürich Youth Hostel has set my expectations for a hostel. This modern building appears to have been built to be a hostel. The lobby and common areas are expansive and pleasant. The front desk is staffed 24 hours. This hostel can be reserved on line at multiple sites, and it accepts credit cards. The front desk staff was courteous... More

We had a quick stop over here as part of a backpacking trip and it was all round fine. Its a very large hostel, with several floors. There is a big area on the ground floor for breakfast, and a seating area with a projector screen. World cup games were being shown. It seemed to be well equipped with facilities... More

A well run hostel with pleasant staff, more than adequate breakfast (included), and large showers. We stayed in the 4 bed female dorm. Only down sides are very slow wifi that's limited to the lobby and it's a bit of a hike to the city centre and train station.

Very clean hostel spacious rooms with good beds, lockers and washing facilities. The staff were very helpful and more than attentive. The free breakfast was very good and just what you need. Plenty of areas to sit downstairs where it was okay to consume your own food and drink despite there being a bar, there was also free Wi-Fi in... More
