Location is a little off but my overall stay for the budget was very good. The place was spacious with benches for reading, breakfast, group discussions for trip planning etc. Dorms were compact but clean. I had a shared dorm with a shared washroom. Overall not bad.

The hostel is very good .. staff are so cooperative. . But it's so far from the centre of the city... about 400 meters from the nearest tram station. Good breakfast... clean room and bathrooms.. To stay in Zurich ... it's so expensive. .. So the hostel's price was so suitable. Generally,Zurich is so clean and nice.. But I think... More

stayed there for nye, the hostel was pretty much empty and dead. absolutely not recommended for solo travelers, it's called youth hostel, but all I've seen is families and asian chicks too busy staring at their phones to engage a conversation with. the facility is quite far away from city center and way too pricey! breakfast was ok and staff...

I tended to stay next to the train station but for Zurich, accommodation is very pricey that I have to pick this youth hostel that is far away from Zurich main station and far away from any station. The closest station i would recommend is tram 11, there are 2 train station close to the area but trains are infrequent... More

The hostel looked new and clean, for all areas including rooms. I stayed in the 4-bedded and the 6-bedded dormitories during two different periods of my journey. Both of them were satisfactory with good facilities including lockers, a washing basin and sockets. The best part was that there were two compartments in the room - sleeping area and packing area,...

While Switzerland is not a budget destination, I was very happy with his hostel and found it to be a good value. Admittedly, the hostel is not centrally located and is about a 45 minute walk from the central station or a bus/train ride. And it not easy to find, so have a map (the hostel is marked on the...

A friend and I began our trip in Zurich and had a great first night stay at the Zurich Youth Hostel. The tram lines throughout the city were incredibily easy to use from the train station to the hostel. The staff was friendly and helpful. Everything seemed very clean. Internet worked well if seated in the sofa section of the... More

A wonderful place to stay with cosy interior (the conversion of this 60s building is exemplary) and comfortable rooms. Common WC and showers were always clean and staff was really friendly and willing to help. I would definately recommend it for friends and families!

This is a large, clean, modern facility with no character, away from the tourist area. I took Streetcar #7 (black on the map I got from Information at the Main Train Station), direction Wollishofen, and got off at the Morgental tram stop. A large breakfast was included in the price of the stay.
