True hostel accommodations: no private bathroom, showers in the basement, only bunk beds in our bedroom, no curtains on the windows, i.e. the bare bones.

This hostel is in a building that has been renovated by two brothers. They have done a very nice job on the renovations. They have a variety of rooms available. Prices are reasonable for Switzerland. Breakfast is not included.

I travelled with my parents and my 76 years old grandmother (for her was a new experience to stay in a backpacking accommodation, and she liked it and she said she felt younger :D). We took a room for six people, even we were four and it was warm, because the hosts turn on the heater some time before our... More
