Location is good in terms of environment but you won't find much in the surrounding area. Staffs were helpful. The rooms are fine except the facilities are minimum. There is wifi only in the lobby which is not even very strong everywhere. It is kind of disappointing that you have to replace your bed and pillow cover by yourself when... More

It has nice facilities but overall is very overpriced and they charge for everything like a wounded bull. If you want to eat cheaply (noodle cups etc) go down the road to the supermarket, they also charge almost triple the price for beer compared to the supermarket. To wash and dry clothes costs 10 francs and you must also provide... More

Paying 50 franc a night for a hostel should not be a thing, but it is Switzerland. For the price, you'll only get wifi in the lobby and not in the rooms, there is no kitchen, you'll have to make your own bed (not a big deal at all, but for the price...), and you won't be walking distance from...

The place kind of looks like a pink factory in the middle of a neighborhood. We visited as a family with jet lag so maybe I was groggy. We had a private family room with an attached water closet. The beds were ok with some kind of strange big fluffy pillows, but that seems to be the standard pillow in... More

Don't stay at this hostel. My Macbook, iPad mini and cash got stolen straight out of my in-room locker. There was a man in the room when I last saw my laptop but the staff were not able to track him according to the door card-reading system. I found a stolen laptop with foreign names in it (super sketchy) in... More

I loved the installations and the staff is amazingly understanding and friendly. I had the chance to meet some guests and they were really friendly as well. The only downside is the price. It is EXPENSIVE. Even though you get breakfast, the food is not really good. The internet is only available at the lobby and sometimes it gets laggy.... More

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

Well the place where the hostel is located is very calm, not very much from the center of city and not much away from the Coop supermarket where you can get your daily groceries. 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
