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.

Place is located 15 minutes far from the city center but is easily reachable from the main train station. Thanks to the remarkable Swiss transport system. Staff at the hostel is very friendly specially at the bar counter. The seating area is an amazing place to make new friends and discuss about city exploring. Wifi is only available at the... More

Youth Hostel / Jugendherberge Zurich was the highlight of our stay in Europe. The staff are incredibly friendly and they go out of their way to help you at all times. They serve you with a smile and make you feel welcome; it feels real and not just for money. We met the best service staff ever and I can't... More

This youth hostel is quite expensive compared to other youth hostels in Europe, but this is more a reflection on the city of Zurich, rather than the hostel. When you compare it to other alternatives in Zurich, this hostel is pretty good. It was clean and had a nice large area downstairs for eating, hanging out and connecting to the... More

A bit expensive than hostels in other cities, but given t is in Switzerland, probably the most expensive country in the world, the quality and service is definitely worth the price. One thing that bothered me is that in some rooms, you can not get wifi signal.
