A great hostel in the center of Zurich. Great location to walk and see a lot of the city. Staff was very helpful and all the facilities were good. A little expensive for a hostel but for Zurich not too bad.

It's just an ok place to stay. The location is decent and the Wi-Fi works well. They charge extra for sheets (totally ridiculous) and towels. The beds are ok but rooms are small, not enough bathrooms and showers. I'd probably look for a different place to stay next time I'm in Zurich.

Booked a 4 bed dorm that was extremely small, no room for our backpacks but between the bunks on the ground in the way. Room had a sink but awkward to use when your so crammed. Overall just small & average. Good location. Don't expect much. Had to also pay for linen.

Excellent hostel! Seeing as Switzerland is generally quite expensive, this place was a bargain and in a great location. 10min walk from Zurich main station and all the sights are within walkable distance. Staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were in good condition. Stayed in a 6 bed female dorm for 2 nights and both nights were fully occupied. Bathrooms are in really good condition with good showers. Common room is great too. Only problem is there's a lot of stairs so pack light!

The place was very clean & a great location. The rooftop area is wonderful to hangout or eat dinner looking over Old Town. Also a great coffee right around the corner and a great location for restaurants.

I absolutely loved the location of City Backpacker! It's right next to the river and a lot of shops and food. The only difficulty was the amount of stairs in the building, the rooms smelled of mold, and not enough outlets. The hostel has beautiful character with the numerous spiraling staircases and the rooftop terrace.

Stayed for one night. Didn't like the fact that you have to rent bed sheets for 3F considering it's already expensive! Hostel is up a few flights of stairs but a good location. There is a kitchen and chill area too. Bed was comfy and space for bag storage. Only met one member of staff who was helpful. Went in low season so wasn't expecting to meet many people.
