Big hostel with reasonable furniture. Clean room, each bed has light and power socket. Lockers need 2 CHF - would prefer to use own lock. Clean bathrooms and extra shower rooms - long lines possible in the morning. Breakfast included is good, even special elements for asians. Unfortunately only a microwave to use. No kitchen, no fridge. Wlan only in... More

The hostel is huge and nice rooms, but the location is not great. After arriving at the station you need to take a tram ride which is about 20 mins long, so it gets quite inconvenient. But overall good hostel, though we had cops coming at night in the neighboring room which was scary.

Easily one of the best Hostels I have stayed till date. Extremely helpful staff, close proximity to Zurich City centre,cool infrastructure & rooms and the cheapest crashpad you can think off in Zurich. With the WiFi just available in the main lobby, you will get to see almost all the hostel inmates hanging around in the lobby unlike other hostels... More

Well organized and clean, with very friendly staff. The bar is something completely unexpected: full of craft beer from local breweries. Decent wifi and good amount of plugs. The location, however, could be much better. It is far away from both the city center and the train station. You need bus or trams or both to get there. If plan... More

So far the best hostel in Zurich. Two things I dislike about this one is the location and that the wifi was not working properly. It is quite far from the center. 50 minutes walking actually. But it can be reached by bus/tram or sbahn in 15 minutes. Wifi doesn't work in the room. Only in the common area. The... More

I came here 7 years ago. I came here with my school, I was a child. Bur what I remember is that I enjoyed my stay here so much. The staff was so kind, the rooms were big enough and the food they give was very tasty! I would love to come back and practise my german :D

We were visiting Zurich for 2 nights and spent our days sight seeing. We wanted somewhere clean, conveniently located, comfortable and affordable. This place ticks all the boxes! We booked a private double with ensuite, and were pleasantly surprised at the standard of accommodation. Just a 20 minute team ride and short walk from the main station, with 24 hour... More

Very nice and friendly establishment. Clean and tidy despite the large number of people. Location is very reasonable even if not very central. Take public transportation to the center. The difference in prices from the city center is worth it. Its also a short walk to the lake for some easy walking/running.
