If on public transport it takes about 20 min from main train station ( 10 min by tram and another 10 min to walk from tram stop) Its built in an old building, but it's a very modern youth hostel, there are lockers available which are free to use but operate on 5 chf coin. We took a private room... More

Nice wonderful receptionist. Hostel was clean, food is wonderfully fresh everyday. good value for money. The location is very near to train tram station, near to supermarket and quite place to stay. Good for family to stay and relax. The view is spectacular.

If mere quality of accommodation is what you're looking for, you need go no further than here. Everything about the hostel is well thought and and high quality. It even has it's own character, like a premium dishwasher. The staff are polite and it has excellent transport links to the town centre, or you could even walk if you are... More

Our group was in room 111 and 112. They have 4 bunk beds on the corner of the building right by a bathroom. The wifi in the lobby seemed to work well. There is a tram/bus stop right across the street from the hostel. The breakfast was good. It is about 30 minutes from the airport on the train/tram/bus system.

Not quiet hostel at night if your sleeping. The staff very friendly, Clean hostel, if you want get WIFI its must be in the lobby. In lobby hostel have so many tables and chair for eat. If you want go to center Zurich, you can take Tram around 15 minute and must be walk catch to Tram around 10-15 minutes.

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
