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.

Breakfast is good and it's free. But they charge more for the other food . They charged huge amount for snooker its 15 CHF/ hr.... More

Pros: Great helpful staff, fantastic and generous breakfast which is included, clean and comfortable enough. Cons: A little far from the city so it's a bit of a trek at the start and end of the day. While everything is clean, the halls and room itself doesn't have a lot of character so it feels a bit drab at times.... More
