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.

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.

Wifi was breaking all the time...

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.

They don't have a 24/7 reception which makes it difficult to arrive (if your flight or train is late you are just out of luck and homeless for the night) and if you leave early there's a long, not very convenient procedure (you give the key back the night before and then are not allowed to leave your dorm room because you won't be allowed back in--bathroom is OUTSIDE the dorm room). It's close-ish to the main train station which is convenient and also in the red light district.

Check in is until midnight. Early check-out is easy: you just do the check out the night before and of course you can use the toilet and leave the room when you do an early check-out!!!

Decent hostel in a decent location. There's a cafe/bar attached and you're given a free drink! Great stuff. All the beds have three plug points and a small lamp each so it's well equipped for a decent nights sleep and recharge. I had some extremely noisy people staying in the hostel - but that's not the hostel's fault so I can't knock any points down. Theres only 2 showers and 1 toilet between 12 people... so it might mean you have to get up extra early for a shower.

We had booked dorm beds but were given an apartment instead. The receptionist was friendly, but did not know where the apartment was located and also told us that we would be staying there by ourselves, although it wasn't so. Location is okay, but cleanlines could be improved a lot. Breakfast was beter than we expected. All in all a very average hostel, we have stayed in much cheaper and better places.

Sorry this was a new receptionist, but she informed you less than one hour later that there are more People. As you booked a 6-bed dorm. DON'T COMPARE THE PRICES OF SWISS HOSTELS WITH HOSTELS IN OTHER COUNTRIES, as the Swiss franc is very strong. You booked the cheapest dorm in central Zurich!

It's located near the main station. You need only 10-15 minutes walk. Only one reason that I disappointed is there is only one shower 10-12 people use at the same floor. However, stuffs are very nice and you diffinately like this hostel!!

The staffs are really friendly and the hostel provide breakfast :) only thing to take note is that it can get really noisy at night.
