Very nice and friendly establishment. Clean and tidy despite the large number of people. Location is very reasonable even if not very central. Take public transportation to the center. The difference in prices from the city center is worth it. Its also a short walk to the lake for some easy walking/running.

I stayed for four days in the hostel. The location is quite calm and its 20 mins away from the central station. The room was very neat and spacious and I liked the showering area. Breakfast is good and it's free. But they charge more for the other food . They charged huge amount for snooker its 15 CHF/ hr....

Pros: Great helpful staff, fantastic and generous breakfast which is included, clean and comfortable enough. Cons: A little far from the city so it's a bit of a trek at the start and end of the day. While everything is clean, the halls and room itself doesn't have a lot of character so it feels a bit drab at times....

I realize the whole Switzerland is overpriced, but being the cheapest among expensive, the hostel doesn't become really cheap. And it simply doesn't worth it. What's the point if it doesn't even have a kitchen or fridge where you could keep your food if you're on budget? And "the best" part is that the price they advertize is in fact...

Not so close from Zurich City Centre but close to Train, Tram and Bus stops. Staff is really really friendly and they have an amazing infrastructure, with a excellent and big lobby with a lot of couches and tables, pool, ping pong, soccer table. They have a Bar and Food. Breakfast is included and better than many hotels, with breads,...
