Small hostel with renovated rooms. Sold as traditional in Switzerland, but there is nothing charming to it, just a decent place with the basics to spend the night. Poor service (the canceled my reservation by their own mistake and didn't even apologize!, also they forgot to mention that I had a card for free public transportation and did not give it to me until the second day). Rooms are very basic but clean (scarce toilet paper!, you may want to bring your own :)). Individuals rooms are quite small and only a courtain separates the bedroom from the bathroom. Breakfast is served in the nicest room of the hostel and is good to the European standards. Location is good because is quite close to metro and train station (people who are sensitive to noise may hear the trains in early morning from the room). Definitely, it it is a way overpriced hostel that in other European countries (ex. Spain) would be a two starts (and hence cheaper) instead of three.
