As other reviews have stated, this hostel had a wide range of guests, from families to teens to the usual 20-30s backpackers. The rooms and facilities are very clean. It is a short train ride from the main train station, and about a 10 minute walk. It is located close to the lake and a few restaurants. A very simple... More

There aren't too many options for hostels in Zurich, but this ended up being a great value for our money. The place is very clean, the showers/bathrooms/bedrooms were great and comfortable! There are surprisingly a lot of families staying here, not a "party" hostel in any way. The free breakfast is also much better than I've had in any other... More

People are nice and very welcoming. Rooms of 4 are just OK not the best but okay. The build of beds are kinda weak, it moves... More

This is on its face value a decent hostel, however the staff, though polite, where extremely unhelpful. Upon my arrival everything seamed to be ok, I got my keycard to my 4 bed dorm. I went upstairs to find two girls screaming as I entered - I arrived late, so I woke them up. They had booked a female dorm,... More

We stayed in a nearby hotel and visited the Hostel for drinks every night for a week. There were no restaurants or bars near our hotel that were open. The lobby of the hostel was very clean and there were people of all ages staying at the hostel. There were computers and free laundry available. The bar had at least... More

I booked two rooms in this hotel. Unfortunately my trip got cancelled. During booking i did not notice that they deduct 30% of the booking amount before 60days of the travel date which is extremely wiered. So Be very careful on this aspect before booking this hotel.

after further staying in other hostels, this was not one of the best. Good; the staff were always available and helpful, check in though 11:30pm was easy and simple. There was a working lift, the showers and toilets were very clean. Bad; It was difficult to get to the hostel, at such a late time, too late to try the... More

I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights. There is a large lobby where you can relax and drink a coffee. They sell Switzerland tshirts and souvenirs. The reception is open -24 hours- and the staff is really helpful. The breakfast was very good. There is a Migros nearby. If you stay in this hostel, remember to control the tramway... More
