Stayed one night in this hostel and liked it for several reasons: very clean, really nice and genuine staff, lots of space (not crammed into a hole like most hostels) and lots of sitting areas, especially outside. Lockers are 2CHF deposit and returned when key is returned, didn't actually try them but I was impressed they didn't cost money. Drying racks supplied with space to set up. I was in the basement 16bed dorm and although it was bunk beds they were top quality (no creaking when you move,sturdy) & the widest I've seen yet. Soft memory foam type of mattress very nice. Only thing is they paired myself and my partner on the top bunks which were side by side touching, so he had someone else beneath him but it probably would have been weirder sleeping directly beside a stranger.. paired the bunk beds in the room so there were 4 groups. Individual lamps but no outlets. Just above train station, can hear them but I slept fine and I'm a light sleeper. Walked to the water in 15-20mins there is a funicular because the hill can get steep. Highly recommended hostel for backpackers or even a vacation.
