The hostel was great but somewhat expensive for the number of hours I spent there.

Staff were brilliant and so helpful. Rooms and facilities were very clean, even hair dryers in the bathrooms. Rooms a good size with plenty of lockers and even a sink and mirror.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The facilities were clean and orderly. The gift shop was a nice touch.

Friendly staff, great kitchen facilities and fine if you're just looking for a place to rest your head. Little/no atmosphere (felt like a hotel) and the blankets desperately needed a wash, reeking of sweat/feet. Reasonable value for money.

Nice and clean hostel. Pretty much average.

Very very good place to stay if all you need is a bed for the night, but lacks personality and not ideal if you plan to use hostel to meet people. Felt a bit like a university dorm.

The Hostel is good in general, but there is a need of staff training.

Decent hostel, close to tram lines and you get free transport included. Kitchen is tiny and not well equipped. Several common rooms on multiple levels. WiFi is strong and the is an outlet and light by every bed.

-Helpful staff, great city maps and free public transport card. -very clean and tidy. -Rooms are a little cramped, but because they're for a small number of people you don't notice. -bathrooms are clean, showers are spacious, have lots of hooks and a dry area. -Kitchen facilities are good. You will need to pay a deposit for a locker in the fridge which is annoying but no one is going to eat your food. Would stay again.

Switzerland is an expensive country, so the hostel was priced well for the country. Overall, it was okay. I had no complaints really, though the hostel itself does not necessarily foster a very interactive culture and environment. The facilities overall were good.

City Hostel is a good hostel, but felt more like a hotel. Although there were areas to hang out, we never saw anyone. The rooms were nice and the bathroom/showers were clean (always important!).

Almost flawless. Close to the station, staff was really friendly, rooms were super clean, showers were amazing. If only the first floor didn't smell like cheese (which they eventually got rid of with air freshener).

I think that the facilties in the hostel is quite good and comprehensive. Maybe it is just a little overpriced.

The hostel was clean, in a good location only 5 minute walk from the train station and not a long walk to get down to the waterfront. We had a lovely stay - thank-you.
