Nice hostel, rooms are big and clean. Although I found staff to be unavailable and not overly friendly and also there was not much of an atmosphere. I could stay here again no problem but id probably look elsewhere first.

The staff were never around to give recommendations. I spent a half hour ringing the doorbell waiting to be let up for check in Very difficult to find charging ports in the rooms. Paint flaking on almost every surface Wouldn't go back

Very hot and loud. Location great. Not a good nights sleep and pillows are awful. Good showers and cleaned well. Wouldn't stay again but if you want good location and don't mind noise and a poor nights sleep then this is for you.

sorry, you were at the Hotel at Zurich Festival, the biggest festival of Switzerland that takes places only every 3 years and for this it was noisy, usually it is quiet after midnight

The room is spacious and very clean. Particularly love the electricity socket inside lockers. But can't really predict when the staff will be inside the office to help you

Best value for my money. The staff was helpful and wonderful. The free breakfast was delicious and a nice break from spending money in an otherwise expensive city! I will miss the friends I made and the fantastic water pressure in the showers. The bar downstairs is overpriced but a nice place to meet others in the hostel. Hotel Otter's location was prime! Close to the lake, many museums, bars, restaurants, shopping, and a concert venue. I recommend checking out the Chinese garden, only 4 frank!

No atmosphere, staff were nice but reception was shut most of the time so that wasn't helpful. Rooms were okay and clean enough. Not many facilities but a good location

1. The location is excellent. just 2 minutes from Belvue and 5 minutes from the Zurich lake. 2. Breakfast has much limited options. Limited variety of breads and cheese. 3. You have to request the staff to make tea/coffee for you which is often not up to one 's own taste. The tea/coffee maker should be kept accessible to the guests so they can make own tea/coffee. 4. There is no pantry available to fix own breakfast or meal. 5. Bathroom facilities are below average.

Awesome location and pretty easy to find. Staff were nice. Room was good size and beds were comfy, bathroom was shared for the whole floor so one toilet and a room with two showers for a whole floor of people.

The rooms were clean, the staff friendly, and the free towels were a huge plus! The free breakfast was also delicious. Would definitely return.
