The good: CLEAN, WARM, FRIENDLY & VERY HELPFUL STAFF, EASY WALK FROM TRAIN STATION
The bad: At 1am I woke up with the WORST cold. I wanted tissues, cold medicine, hot tea, and just a room to sit in where I wouldn't wake up my buddy who was trying to get sleep. But unfortunately the lobby and reception area "closes". I haven't seen a hostel close before at night, but this hostel closes around 11pm so you can't get help or ask for help if it's between around 11pm to 6am (I may have my times wrong).
Improvements: This is a hard one..... see, I'm American and don't speak A WORD of German (or Swiss-German) and you know when you go to a hostel you kind of hope to meet people, share traveling stories, share city tips and maybe even a meal together..... well, since I didn't speak German I kind of felt like I didn't belong.
So this is really MY FAULT - not the hostels.
Maybe if they had like an "ice-breaker" or a little bit of optional "group entertainment" it would have given me that little bit of an "I belong" feeling.
Overall- this hostel is perfect for your average hostel traveler. I would recommend it in a heartbeat.
