I booked this place because the web page looked interesting but the reality is quite different.

It is called Crossbox Backpackers, but it doesn't cover the package . I Don't know how to rate this hotel . It had a nice atmosphere, but still things tend to be negative. Like walking in there is a nice wooden antique reception, but well,.... it is just for deco, just try one of the doors . One does say... More

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... More

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

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.
