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

Generally as youth hostels go, this one was very industrial and corporate. The hostel itself was spacious and clean, and if you enjoy walking, it's not that far from the city center. Nice value for the price, and the breakfast that is included had a very good spread.

We had to walk up a hill with our heavy luggages to reach this hostel. The location isn't the best and is not located near to the city center. Even after taking tram 7 from Zurich HB to Wollishofen, you still need to walk up a long path upslope to the hostel. The only good thing about the location is... More

What a nice surprise to arrive at the youth hostel in Zurich, expecting something simple and minimalistic, and find this nice, well equipped establishment with friendly and helpful staff. This is certainly worth considering when visiting Zurich.
