very loud

The hostel was good, one of the cheapest available for Zurich, dorms were comfortable and staff were friendly, but there were a few things that could affect you opinion. The street the hostel is located on has numerous bars, clubs and strip clubs, so it can get quite noise during the night time, especially during weekends. The nearest tram station is about 7 mins walk away. Having one bathroom between 12 can cause some queues, plus one time when I got to use the shower there was no hot water.

By a bus stop but is pretty much in the red light area of Zurich. That could be good or bad, depending on the person

Any way to reduce the noise level from the street would be great. I would wake up continuously through the night.

This hostel was very dirty. The bathroom smelled like urine and the shower had visible dirt. The hostel was extremely expensive (everything in zurich is), but provided only the most basic things for this money. The rooms were small and very cramped, and there was only one small common space for the many people staying in this hostel. The kitchen was utterly disgusting and staff failed to clean it when rude guests left their food. Overall, I'd just she'll out for the hotel in zurich next time.

Bad neighborhood...red light district

I've stayed here twice. Both times as there are so few hotels in Zurich. The rooms are OK. A free drink is welcome. Live music is available but often makes it very hard to hear in the bar/cafe. Unfortunately many more cons exist, like; There is only one toilet per floor. The other option is a toilet down in the bar/cafe. The shower and toilet and sink are combined. Not like a hostel at all, very little info by staff, who mainly are bar staff.

Had a bit of trouble with my reservation, but staff was really helpful with that. There is not enough bathrooms though.

Great staff, clean place and good company! But a bit too expensive (like everything else in Zurich) for a 12 bed room.

overbooked the 6 bed fem dorm I was meant to be staying in so was put in 12 bed mixed instead with 10 francs refund and an extra free drink which was appreciated as only one bathroom in 12 bed which is not ideal and cost was still pretty high- Zurich prices. great location in west Zurich though I personally preferred Old Town, lively bar, friendly staff and simple breakfast, does the job!

Location of this hostel was great, about 10min walk from the Zurich Hbf. I was there on the Monday night of the Easter break, so it was relatively quiet. A shout out to the staff at the hostel, they were absolutely awesome. Friendly and helpful, and I had a fantastic time hanging out with the owner, who's a really cool dude. The only annoying thing was 1 bathroom between 12 people, but other than that, I fully recommend this hostel!

The hostel was clean, the beds were comfy, the staff were friendly and helpful and there was a great relaxed atmosphere in the bar area. The only slight gripe I have is that the only toilet for our dorm was in the same room as the shower, so if someone was having a shower then no-one else could use the toilet. Although that said, you could probably go up to the next floor and use their bathroom so it's not a big issue

The Good: - perfect location for age group - very friendly staff The Bad: - only one bathroom in a 12 bed dorm

All in all it is a good hostel. The breakfast was good and the free drink is quite kind of them. Staff is also very nice. Only thing I can really say is that they should have some kind of age limit especially since they have a pretty cool bar with music downstairs. But having old dudes in the room sleeping all the time can ruin the vibe.

I stayed on the floor with common room and everyone could come on and use the facilities. I didn’t have hot shower for 1 night and the staff told me to wait for 10 minutes coz someone used up hot water, but I didn’t get hot shower after more than 10 minutes. Staff were helpful in daytime, but not at night time. Only one toilet on my floor for both male and female. I couldn’t use the toilet on the first morning because someone from other floor was using and had to go downstair at receiption

The bed still had the sheets of the previous occupant when I arrived (in the evening). Not a good place to sleep on a weekend with the noise from the pub below (to be fair they do warn you about this). 1 bathroom between 12 is not good and means queues start at 6:00am. Yes it's Switzerland and everything is expensive but I expected a little more (and have got better for less cost in other Swiss cities). The staff were really great though, and breakfast was good.

Good hostel in a good location - only a 10 min walk to the main train station. The free breakfast was pretty good. Excellent lockers in the rooms and a great luggage storage facility for before checking in / after check out and all linen and towels included. Only downside was 1 shower and 1 toilet (in the same room) for 12 people. I enjoyed my stay.
