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

I realize the whole Switzerland is overpriced, but being the cheapest among expensive, the hostel doesn't become really cheap. And it simply doesn't worth it. What's the point if it doesn't even have a kitchen or fridge where you could keep your food if you're on budget? And "the best" part is that the price they advertize is in fact... More

Staff is really really friendly and they have an amazing infrastructure, with a excellent and big lobby with a lot of couches and tables, pool, ping pong, soccer table. They have a Bar and Food. Breakfast is included and better than many hotels, with breads,... More

Breakfast is the best part of this hostel - from variety of breads to cereals; it has everything to get you started. Missing ones are fruits, chicken & eggs. If you like pork... More

Nice hostel, nice staff, really nice breakfast! Clean and with a lot of bathrooms and showers! I got the shared room with four beds, they have lockers inside the rooms and even a sink/ mirror. Quite handy! The location isn't the best one and the price is a bit expensive. However, everything in Switzerland is expensive. (No wifi on the... More
