Depot 195 - Hostel Winterthur
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We stayed here during a music festival so were a little fearful because we had our little daughters with us. It was wonderful. The family room is charming, beds very comfy and everything was absolutely immaculately clean. The staff were lovely and very helpful. Its a 5-10 minute walk to the centre of town. Definitely recommend.

This should be your fist choice if you are looking for something special off the beaten track. The hostel is clean, spacious, charming and the staff very friendly and helpful. Only 5 minutes walking distance from the main railway station with fast connections to Zurich (S12, 19 min) every half hour (:22 and :52) and back (:21 and :51) and to Zurich Airport (13 min, :25 and :55).

But going to Zurich is actually not even necessary. Situated in the former industrial area "Sulzerareal" there is much to explore in the near neighborhood, as for example just next door the nice little cafe "Portier" or the layback music bar/club "Kraftfeld" as well as the mix of old industrial and modern office buildings nearby. Last but not least the old town of Winterthur nearby (5 min by foot) offers a wide range of restaurants, clubs, museums and shopping opportunities. Why going to Zurich and getting lost...?

Room Tip: The dorms are all quite equal. The private rooms under the roof are very charming. Rooms facing to t...

The hostel is very good and has a nice modern design. We stayed here because zurich was too expensive. It is very close to the train station, which made it easy to ride into zurich. The neighborhood was very hip and there is a lot of interesting things to do. It is somewhat outside of downtown, but the walk is not bad at all. Overall I would definitely recommend staying here.

If you come to Zurich area, you must check this place out. BRAND NEW FACILITY, just opened in May. Clean rooms, clean bathroom, awesome kitchen, hot shower, friendly staff. BEST OF ALL, the FASTEST WI-FI I HAVE HAD IN SWITZERLAND. I tried other hotels, but I keep coming back here over & over. LOVE THIS PLACE.
