Friendly staff lights up your stay. Clear instructions and nice response to any request. Unlike some rare and remote hostels with bad staff attitude, this hostel remains the best place I have been staying for my trip in Switzerland.
I stayed here for three nights, in a female dorm that could fit 8. At the most there were four of us. The top had single beds and double beds, all bunk, and I got to choose whichever I preferred. I took a lower double one, and it was very good - mattress not too soft not too hard, the lamp worked, lovely blue fitted sheet, the blanket was a little short but warm goose feather quality. It was a little cold in the room, also because the windows are very large and only open the regular way so when you want to air the room you let in too much of the cold air. You get a free locker, and there are little tables and chairs too, to put stuff on. The toilets and shower facilities are great, very clean, everything working, enough soap and paper. I got a free towel (asked from reception). The showers are in individual booths, 29th a little bench to put your stiff on so it doesn't get wet. Also, huge plants, loved it! There is a laundry room, also with ironing facilities. The kitchen is fully equipped, fridge, induction plate cooking stove, electric kettle, microwave, all pots plates and cutlery. Nice eating area. There is the option of a 8 CHF breakfast, but the limited options (bread, bitter, cereal, OJ, coffee tea fruit) made me prefer to buy stuff from Aldi nearby. Nice lounge areas, books and board games, a small back courtyard and a large front one (as part of a complex of companies, restaurant, theatre - all in a former factory). Super awesome that you get the Basel Card included, all public transport free (including outskirts, I went to the Vitra complex and the Beyeler foundation) and 50% off for museum tickets. Good Wi-Fi, ask for a room with good reception. Very friendly staff.…
I found this hostel to be the cheapest in Basel and at the same time at a very good location. It's a five-minute walk from the main railway station. It has also other good tram and bus connections from its point. Rooms are good, some of the beds are double size. The place has it's own kitchen where you can make your food and save a good deal of money.
- not cleaned bathrooms, broken locker so I could not close the door - very slow ineternet + comfy beds + good location Hostel was ok but still have to improve some of the things. For one may be Ok but not for more.
We checked in late and they had a way to leave the key which is good. They also give a free basel pass We had a mix dorm which was full, a bit stuffy and not much space to move around. Quite hard to get up to the top bunk. There was lockers in the room which was good. The kitchen is small and there is also a small breakfast area.
