Lovely friendly staff... Willing to answer questions and give advice on the area. Cute Swiss chocolate and A beer incl. in price.... Handy location, close enough to walk to the city centre... Comfy bed , not too loud. Pretty cool hostel. 👍🏻

The Langstars Hostel on Langstrasse 120, is permanently closing for business during the week of September 15th, 2016. The downstairs bar is expected to turn into a Tapas restaurant shortly thereafter in October.

Pros: comfy beds, big lockers (bring your own lock or rent them from reception), close to the city (walking is possible if you're cutting costs), plugs at all beds, GREAT wifi, clean bathrooms, luggage store after checkout, free drink each night (you can't 'save' your drinks for 1 night, you have to have one per day), friendly staff. Cons: LOUD!...

So I have no idea where that picture of the map wall was taken that makes this place seem so quaint and nice, it's rather an average bar with average rooms upstairs. I was unable to charge my things while I slept because the plug in the locker didn't work. Didn't have a pillow when I got back one night....

Zurich isn't well off for hostels so if you can't get in the HI place, or don't want to pay its prices, then Langstars offers the main alternative. Unfortunately, in terms of cost alone, you're not going to save a great deal by coming to Langstars. I know this is Switzerland, which doesn't do cheap, but Langstars' charges are outrageous...

Quite cheap place, really well located great for you that wants to save money to other stuff . The lows. Im here no during the summer so the room was quite warm, lots of noise coming from the street and there is no 24h reception. So make sure you come before 23:00.

By now I've forgotten the name of our kiwi bartender as it's been over a month, but I promised him to write so here we go. We stayed at the hostel for one night only, but with so great people meeting us in the reception/bar they made it memorable. Yes, the rooms very a little tight and only the one...

I stayed in the room for 6 and it was far too compact even though only 4 of us were staying in there at the time. My backpack did not fit into the lockers provided so I had to leave it in front of the persons bed below me, making the room even smaller. I believe there was also only...

The reception is in a bar, what makes me guess it's not 24hour but after you get your key you don't have to worry. The location is great. I went walking from the main station. I was in six bed mix dorm. There was a small kitchen next to the dormitory and a common room. Only one mixed toilet on...

This is the place for backpackers located only 10 minutes from the center It's basic, but clean. You have lockers, sheets and towel included. Good (and free) wifi in the dormitory. Except noisy surrounding in weekend nights. You can enjoy the live music in the cafe bar downstairs. For families this is not a good option
