5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

Location: Excellent! Train station, main street, old town are all within walking distance.

Staff: Helpful and friendly.

Room: Clean and spacious.

Value of money: Definitely worth it!

There's only one thing I was not so happy with. It's impossible to get into the hostel between 10am to 5pm and after 10pm till the next morning, because there's only one key per room to open the main door, and there are six beds per room. That means only one person per room has the access to the hostel and room 24/7, which is not so convenient to others.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2008

I stayed at this Hostel twice during 2007. Staff spoke english and were helpful and friendly. Booked single accommodation both times I stayed. Rooms and dorms are downstairs in this old historic building in central Fribourg. Rather solid building and seems a bit sterile looking. First time I had my own room with sink, and dorm bathroom across hall. Second time I had twin bedded room to myself with no sink/water, and shared bathroom around hallway. Very secure and was quiet both times I stayed. Breakfast upstairs was casual and staff friendly. Basic good breakfast (nice assortment of breads, jams, fruit, juice, tea and excellent coffee from machine). Breakfast room has a nice outlook and is very bright. Internet terminal in reception area. I stayed in quite a few Swiss Hostels during 2007 and this was at the usual good standard. More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Fribourg enthuses all who are keen to discover an exceptional city nestled in a superb landscape. The distinctive structure of the historic Old Town with its steep alleys, with its bridges and fountains quickly charms city visitors and is testimony to a rich and varied history. Artists such as Jean Tinguely, Niki de Saint Phalle and Bernard Luginbuhl practised their calling and left their mark here. ... more   less
