2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

To be honest we were attracted by price and while cheap not so cheap that you shouldn't expect towels or less dingy communal toilets and showers. The breakfast is particularly poor value- 10 euros for a glass of juice, a coffee, a slice of bread and couple of bits of ham. That said the place has an interesting edgy feel located as it is behind the station and surrounded by on going development either side like the little old lady's house in one of the Herbie films. It also seems to have a permanent coterie of locals smoking and drinking at the bar. Interesting to have stayed once but would not repeat.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

I needed a place for my son (25) to stay while he visited me.They put him in a single room that gave him his space and peace of mind. He had a great time, met the local crowd, who showed him how the Swiss party. The staff was friendly and helpful

Room Tip: single room with common bath is ok, full suites are available, but they go fast

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2009

We enjoyed the Crossbox. Clean, quiet rooms, just a block or two fm. the train station. It is a shower down the hall, bring your own towel (or rent one for 5 Fr.s) sort of place but the price was right, the rooms handsome and the staff friendly.
