    A nice place set in an old factory along with a few other places such as a brewery/bar, restaurants and so on. Friendly staff helped with suggestions for a short time in Basel. Beds were big so my partner and I could actually be in the same bed together! One particular guest who left at 5am insisted on waking up the rest of the dorm by getting her things together, but you get those people sometimes! For those on a budget (not easy to do in Switzerland) this is a good place.
