Nice hostel, nice staff, perfect location. Lots of stars to get to the hostel. Very few sockets in the bedroom making it difficult to charge phones etc.

Reasonable hostel for the price in Zurich. Communal area a bit small so not great for socialising in the evening.

The hostel location is pretty good, really close to the main train station. The bathrooms were clean and the kitchen is good. You have to rent the bed linen.

I went on a 10.5 week trip of Europe and this hostel was one of my favourites. Each floor has it's own kitchen so it's great to get to know the people in your corridor easily. Zurich is relatively small so the location isn't far from anything! Compared to the rest of Europe, this is an expensive hostel but for Switzerland it is a fair price. The staff are very welcoming. My only complaint would be the lack of plug sockets in the rooms, but there are some in the common room and kitchens!

Great spot with good location near a bunch of bars and restaurants. Check-in was easy and simple and the staff was really friendly. Definitely worth a repeat stay.

AMAZING location! Easy to walk everywhere in the city center! Rooms were clean and a good size! The lounge has tons of maps and brochures to plan your sight seeing. The staff was very nice and helped whenever there was a request! The wifi only worked in the lounge because the main wifi in the building was down, so that was annoying but understandable, and the credit card reader was down so had to pay in cash. Great environment- met 3 or 4 other travels and talked with them.

Great location. Close to everything. Lots of stairs. Zurich is expensive as a backpacker. Good upstairs area for a beer and meet some people at the end of the day.

Nothing special, though the rooftop terrace and the location are great.
