This a pretty cool little hostel. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are nice, and so forth. The only thing is it is a little out of the center of Basel. To make up for it they give you a free public transport card for your stay! It's only 10 minutes away by tram

The staff were really friendly and helpful. Although the location was in the other direction from the main sites, I really liked the small area it was in. The hostel and bars and shops around it were built on the site of an old factory, it was really cool and gave the place it's atmosphere. It wasnt a huge hostel and for a city centre hostel it was fairly quiet at night. Good kitchen facilities, excellent free wifi. The beds were really comfortable too.

been coming here every year for the past 10, so yes, best place to stay for the money. The rooms are great, kitchen, breakfast, for a price. large urban garden area, with cool bars, cafes and eateries. All organic and very refreshing. Tram outside the building.

Comfy, clean and modern hostel. The staff were friendly and personable, facilities were clean and updated. Walking distance to the central train station and was given a tourist travel card for free access to local public transport. Wish I could've stayed longer :)

The staff was extremely helpful and always friendly. Cleanliness is always an issue with shared bathrooms, but at this location, it was handled very well and it was a pleasure to stay there.

OK Hostel, cheap option in Basel, not a very lively atmosphere when I was there, there is a common area at the entrance which was empty at all times, good kitchen and comfy beds, good stay for one night, but not very social hostel imo.

Lovely hostel. Friendly helpful staff. Hostel is located in a fun complex of buildings and is an easy tram ride into the old town. Beds were comfortable and dorms spacious. Kitchen was well equipped and tidy. Plenty of spaces to chill out and meet other travellers. Only complaint is the walls were quite thin so you could hear everything going on in the corridor and neighbouring rooms.

A bit quiet at times, but it's a nice place to stay, big rooms, and high bunk beds. Basel is a nice city, but I wouldn't recommend staying more than two full days, that is enough time to explore what Basel has to offer. The staff are very helpful, and the kitchen facilities are decent. The free travel card is nice in Switzerland, and I would recommend anyone staying there to take the tram down towards Ettingen, there are some great walking and cycling tracks in the beautiful countryside.

Nice hostel with big and comfy common rooms! Electric sockets by every bed. Located in a quiet and creative square a little walk from the centre, but they give out free public transport tickets. Very happy with my stay, just two constructive tips; get soap dispensers in the bathroom sinks, and instruct guests how to open the door to the rooms when they check in :) (a lot of people, including myself, struggled with this, resulting in sleeping people in the room waking up)
