I realize the whole Switzerland is overpriced, but being the cheapest among expensive, the hostel doesn't become really cheap. And it simply doesn't worth it. What's the point if it doesn't even have a kitchen or fridge where you could keep your food if you're on budget? And "the best" part is that the price they advertize is in fact... More

Not so close from Zurich City Centre but close to Train, Tram and Bus stops. Staff is really really friendly and they have an amazing infrastructure, with a excellent and big lobby with a lot of couches and tables, pool, ping pong, soccer table. They have a Bar and Food. Breakfast is included and better than many hotels, with breads,... More

We stayed for 2 nights here and found the place extremely good. Its closer to tram 7 stop (10 mins walking) to reach out to downtown area. Breakfast is the best part of this hostel - from variety of breads to cereals; it has everything to get you started. Missing ones are fruits, chicken & eggs. If you like pork... More

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'...
