The hotel/ hostel is very cheap and only about 2 minutes walk to the city but everything else is bad.
Check in is from 4pm onwards and not a minute sooner, you have to pay 5 CHF to rent a towel and get you get a bond of like 2-3 CHF back when you check out and 10 CHF as a bond for the room key.
The rooms are pretty average, we had a twin room with our own balcony facing away from the street so that we thought we wouldn't have to worry about the noise but we were wrong. Managed to get about 3 hours sleep that night, the walls are paper thin and when people are talking in the hallway it sounds as if they are right next to your door, also when someone shuts a door,it slams and echoes through the whole floor.
There are two bathrooms in on each floor, one male and one female each with a shower cubicle and a toilet....There must be about 10-15 people on the floor so not really adequate facilities for everyone although we never had any problems when we were there.
Unfortunately we booked this hotel last minute so we had no choice but next time we would not come back here!
