Easy to get to from train station. Very comfortable night sleep. Simple but clean. I'd say great value for money in such an expensive city.

It's the most budget friendly hostel in the city, I think. The location is perfect, in the city centre and very close to the train and bus station. The low point was there's a lot of stairs there so I got some difficulties when carrying my luggage.

Can't beat the location, right in the middle of the beautiful old town. Staff were very helpful however not always around. Kitchen was fantastic, however rooms are quite small with few electricity plugs

Excellent location, though there's a two-story climb up to the reception (and up to several more for the rooms). Rooms have a sink, but don't have a shower/bathroom, which is just slightly inconvenient. There's also not much of a common gathering place - the reception lobby sort of functions that way, but really the only way to get to meet people is to hang out in the kitchen and hope someone comes by. Overall, I'd recommend this hostel (though not extremely enthusiastically).

good : nice location, full equipment kitchen including stove, fancy view of a rooftop, free rent converter bad : you have to pay additional 3CHF if you don't have linen, a hostel is quite high from ground floor, cabinet not include locker, wifi signal is strong in reception floor

Very average hostel. Not possible to charge phones at night, since turning off the lights also turns off the electricity to the room. Staff is not very helpful - better to go to the Info Desk at the Tourism Office to ask questions.
