Pleasant stay, kitchen was handy, nice to save money by doing a little Cooking. Only a short walk into town. Rooms were comfy, a few showers and toilets that were well kept. Not much of an atmosphere at all. Big downside is the 4pm check in. Hard to do something with your day when you can't unpack and get ready to go up a mountain.

a good hostel and easy to get too, only thing was check in person was not the friendliest, and not around at scheduled open times (7:15p) had to wait about a half hour to come back. Additionally bunk beds are the rickety metal ones, so if are on the top bunk going to wake the whole room getting up there! Overall is average hostel for average price in Switzerland

Backpackers was right by the lake, which was cool. It was a little farther from the city. There was not air conditioning and mosquitos could get in through the windows if you weren't careful. I was in a room at the end of the hall and I struggled with wifi. They had s nice kitchen for cooking and games to play and books to read which was nice.

Lovely location, only 15 mins from train station and old town. Really friendly staff with average rooms and bathrooms. Would recommend and return.

Great rooms and facilities were pretty good. Every room had a balcony - a luxury! The rooms were very hot though. Wifi was really good. Not anywhere near the city center and takes a while to walk from the train station, but it's right near the lake and park which is pretty and a good place to chill at night. Nothing nearby other than that.

The hostel was safe and comfortable and had good shared facilities: separate showers, toilets, wash basins etc. Things to know: - It is a 15-20 min walk from the train station in a direction far from all the tourist attractions - The website says checkin deadline is 10p but turns out it was 11p (found out after rushing) - Tiny hostel, two floors in a shared building. - Near the water (100-150metres) but no real view. - No dedicated storage room but they lock the kitchen from 10a-4p
