Not a particularly good hostel for meeting people, as there is not much of an atmosphere. Other than that the hostel was really good, except that there is no option for breakfast.


Very clean and lovely place, nice and quiet! Not exactly a place to meet other travelers, but I loved the cleanliness and quietness after long days of discovering the city.


Helpful free transport card!


pI like the idea of recycling. The hotel is good to manage on this. Overall, the place is very clean, good sanitary of toilet and good location, which is closed to train station. When you stay at the hostel, do not forget to buy veronix knife since this place offers the cheapest price compared to other cities in switzerland. Also it is a good opportunity to buy reasonable swiss pass here. Another thing, do not forget to ask for free bus pass during your stay.


Room is too tight, staffs please check if guests come ina couple staying in multiple beds should not stay apart from each other.
