Great location and friendly staff. The laundry is way too expensive, so avoid doing it here. Renting your sheets is absurd and is obviously a gimmick to make the price appear lower. But Switzerland is expensive, so you have to bite the bullet. Good lockers. Bathroom is about as clean as you can expect for a hostel.


This hostel is amazing! Everything was really clean, the best part was the staff! The redhead was SO nice, did our laundry and helped us get around town as well as showed us how to get cheap train tickets. I would recommend this hostel to anyone.


Not enough electrical outlets. Was sort of a sketchy building as well. The rooms were too small for the amount of people in them. Sheets should not have been extra considering how expensive everything is already in Switzerland.


The location is not far from the Zurich main station. The staff is very kind. In downtown of Zurich, the cost is very economical and it's a good choice to stay in this hostel.
