I stayed here as part of my working-trip to Switzerland. The bedding was clean, but I recall having red spots on my arms and legs a few days after arriving in the hostel (potentially bed-bug bites, although this is not definite). The hostel is located along "Langstrasse", a street which divides opinion. Some feel this is lively, and has lots of things happening. I feel it is sleazy and has an edgy, dangerous vibe about it. Loud music can also be heard from within rooms, which is non-stop on Friday and Saturday nights. On the negative side, I had my laptop stolen in this very hostel, when having a buffet breakfast. The doors are open in the summer, and many weird people walk into roam the bar area. Upon alerting staff about my missing laptop, the reaction was surprising. They were not too bothered and advised me to report it to the police. They were not inquisitive, didn't ask about how it went missing etc. This was very disappointing. I cannot recommend this place based on my experience, but for a hostel, it was clean and is in a central location. If you are into the clubbing scene, and can look after yourself / are not too afraid of rough neighbourhoods, then this place is fine. If you are travelling alone, or return to your room late at night, I would probably avoid this place, and stay somewhere along Neiderdorfstrasse (other side of river), which is far more friendly, safe, and has many other tourists/travellers.
