“very clean, friendly staffs, no real 6-bed room only for women”
Reviewed 16 September 2011

it is a very clean hostel, beyond the mind, situated in a good place concerning public transportation, just 5 min to tram and close to the Zurich river. unfortunately there are not a lot of restaurants, fast foods or Cafe in nearby but you can find one good in 1-3 station.
the shared toilettes and bathrooms are very clean.
wifi is just working in the lobby and not in the rooms.
There is no real 6-bed rooms only for women unless you are a group of 6. we booked an only for women room but we faced some problems and we forced to get in contact with staffs and show them documents for this. until they accepted to leave our room only for women. I highly recommend this hostel for a short stay and visit from zurich.

A friend and I ( 60's somethings)needed a place for one night before flying out of Zurich Airport... maybe there are alternatives for low budget travelers, but this was last minute, and we were happy to be so conveniently located. Given the prices of hotels in Zurich ( which run in the hundreds, much higher than, say NYC), this is an absolute bargain, and provides nice meals ( which I would suggest taking advantage of, as you are in for real sticker shock if you are from the US or probably much of the rest of Europe). Rooms are modern dorm type, but very clean and roomy enough. Not far from the tram. Nice views if you walk towards the Lake. And for another bargain, take the commuter ferry that runs down the Lake from downtown-- costs very little, great views!

Stayed here while travelling across Switzerland. The Hostel is around a 10 minute tram ride from the center. I really would not recommend walking as its way too far! A tram pass cost arround 7franc for the day.
The Hostel itself is really nice and modern though very large! The rooms are modern and comfy each with its own sink. The showers are nice and clean and theres enough for everyone.
The hostel serves breakfast which is included and is cereals and bread. They also offer Dinner for an extra charge. There is free wifi in the lounge area. It does feel slightly like an airport departure lounge but its still nice!

Apart from the location and maybe the size this hostel would be excellent. Would stay here again as not much choice!

Located 15 mins from station by tram then 10 min walk. Large hostel, some staff were friendly. You have to pay for Internet. You can't into rooms until after 3pm. Breakfast good and dinner was offered for 17 euros. There is a supermarket (Migros) and take away food nearby. Tram service is very good.

Apparently finding decent cheap lodging in Zurich is difficult. This is about as cheap as you can find. If you're used to hostels in other countries, though, which are not just RELATIVELY cheap but ACTUALLY cheap, be prepared for an unpleasant surprise. Here, you'll pay about $50 for a dorm bed.

The main benefit of this place is that it is very clean and nice-looking. It also has a pretty solid breakfast.

Other than that, it falls short in most categories. The rooms are just average, not super nice or spacious or anything, which makes them seem not worth the price. You have to pay for internet, and it's not cheap. The hostel is located some distance from the main city center; it's only a 10-minute tram ride, but it makes it a bit less feasible to just stroll out for dinner or the like. Also, unlike many hostels I've stayed it, this one does not provide a kitchen for your own use, meaning you can't sidestep the outrageously high Swiss food prices by buying grocery store food at keeping it in the fridge.

To sum it up, the only reason this gets three stars is because I don't think there are any better deals in Zurich. Everything in Swizterland is expensive, so I have to give this a decent rating. If this hostel were in another country, at this price, I would call it a bad deal.
