Guest reviews

  • Single

    It has many shower room, toilet and they are very clean. Breakfast is also good. very good. I enjoy that everyday.

    It's expensive. I know, swiss is expensive and hostel facility is good but it's too expensive to me.

  • Single

    Clean, comfy bed, lockers

    No coat hangers available

  • Couple

    Excellent standard for backpackers. Youth hostel international standards so clean, tidy, helpful and with environmental standards. Nice bathroom too!

    Slight distance from town but close to transport

  • Group of friends

    The lady in the morning was a nice person

    1) The guy in the night was extremelly rude, he left us waiting 20 minutes first of all, the hotel charges 7 usd extra if you arent member of the yout hhostels which werent stated in the website, I asked the clreck guy a place to have dinner at 11 and he said all was closed that only in the center I would find something to eat and that I shoukd bette rbuy from his food which was overpriced, 1 sandwich like 8 usd, I went outside and walked 2 blocks and found 3 restaurants openned, the hostel is quite far and really expensive for being a youth hostel, wouldnt recommend it, better pay some extra 10 usd and get a hotel in the center, just the daily tram costs that, 0 recommended

  • Single

    Great location - near the wollishofen bahnhof and rote fabrik (an unusual spot for nice food and events). Hearty breakfasts and a snack bar which came in handy when I arrived late on my first evening. Staff were very helpful and the hostel was quiet and clean.

    The only downside is the third floor (and possibly others) does not have wireless which meant I had to sit in the communal space to have web access. This is not great when you are on a business trip and need to have confidential skype conversations.

  • Single

    the room is cosy and clean

    it's a little far from the centre place (and the main station). even get off the tramway you still need another 10mins walk, which is a little bit inconvenient for new comers. And the room fee is not quite like a YouthHotel.

  • Single

    the showers,

    Expensive, small rooms, and if you lose the key of the locker you have to pay 50 CHF...crazy! What is the key made of? Gold?

  • Single

    The rooms, bathrooms, lobby and staff

    Food prices, check in, check out times.

  • Single

    The hostel have a very helpful staff, able to assist you for just about everything you might need or want to know. The breakfast is a big plus, because the food is of very good quality. Also you can meet (mostly young) people from all over the world. All in all, probably the best place to stay in Zurich for that amount of money.

    The rooms were a bit small for so many people, but you'll probably stay there only when you sleep, so this is not a major problem.

  • Single

    It's relatively large hotel located not far from the lake, so it's not hard to find it and can easily enjoy the view of the beautiful lake.

    The bed linen is poor.

  • Single

    Good hostel: low price, clean, quiet, safe. Especially for young people but also families were present.

    Not so close to the center, but the public transport is good.

  • Single

    It is near tram station arrived in the morning and there was a place for backpack until check-in time.The breakfast was good.The staffs were very friendly.The room and shared bathroom were clean.

  • Single

    The hostel is spacious (big lobby area), has clean rooms, showers and toilets. Wifi is free. Easy transport to the center of Zurich and within walking distance of the lake

    The hostel (building) and service staff are very impersonal. There are no activities/excursions organized, which I think is a missed opportunity.

  • Older travelers

    clean,good desine,

  • Single

    Very neat and clean, the staff was very good and very helping. Every thing was very nice.

    It was very expensive. In other european countries I could have had a double room for the money which I paid for a single bed in Zurich. But switzerland is expensive overall so I guess compared to switzerland it might have been cheap
