The hostel is quite far from the Old Town. It is situated in the district with a lot of clubs so having a nice sleep is difficult with the loud noise from night up to 3-4 in the morning. Expensive price and facilities is not very good. Practically everyone can enter each other' s room as the same key works for all rooms and no lockers, pretty insecure for me.

Was a good hostel- only issues were the volume at night, even with earplugs, as it's in a busy night strip (? Zurich's red light district!). Secondly, was a very warm room! Great experience still though.

Was extremely happy with my stay at the big Apple. Was blown away by the friendly staff, clean facilities and great breakfast. I recommend this hostel to anybody who wants their stay in Istanbul to be a success. Ugur is a super star! Lots of love from Australia.

The showers were very very cold which must be horrible in the winter, but everything else was great.

Pretty average to mediocre hostel. I don't mind paying that much for a hostel as long as it's a great hostel, but I definitely felt like I didn't get my money's worth out of it. There's no refrigerator in the kitchen, so expect to shop everytime you cook. Request a room not facing the street, during the summer you have a choice of either not sleeping because the noise but having the window open or baking but not having the noise. That being said, if you're looking to go out, location is perfect

I thought it was a great hostel. Hands down, best staff and free breakfast. Small bedrooms BUT huge lockers in each room. Great bar downstairs, separate from rooms, had a jam session while I was there. Oh there's a happy hour and a free beer. No lift but it's my fault for overpacking. Single girl traveling alone, the red light district didn't phase me. Grocery stores close.

Good and friendly staff with a lot of nice tips about Zurich and Region. The reception is a nice bar/cantine where you can find a good breakfast and alternative people from the whole World.

Fine place to stay for a few nights. Good bar that offers drink specials. BIt of an odd mix of travelers and people looking for the cheapest accommodation they can find in Zurich, though.

Atmosphere was great. Right in the middle of the fun part of Zürich, lost of fun to be had, small bars, cafés, pubs, really great place to hang out. Also, the hostel functions as a bar, and a pretty good bar at that. I had an awesome time!

A pretty nice place to stay. It's pretty much a hostel on top of a bar that's always busy at night. It's pretty loud with the sound traveling up into the rooms, but so is the street noise. The location has a few 'cheap' places to eat around and plenty of other bars. I would stay here again

Was loud in the street outside during both nights. Closed window on dorm and got hot as no fan. Zurich was quite warm even for an Australian. Fans were being installed in bar when i left. Isolated issue. Great staff!

One shower room with toilet per 12 beds made it difficult in the morning but staff were very friendly and the atmosphere in the cafe was really great.

Fun hostel, lots of live music. It would have been nice if the kitchen worked though.

The area is in the red light district of Zurich, but we felt totally safe the whole time. The hostel does a really great job to create a sense of community (free beer and breakfast) and the staff was extremely helpful. Would definitely recommend / return.

Awesome place the best location you can ask for. Everyone on the 4th floor 12 bed mix is super social. Had an awesome time. Directions are somewhat confusing. I would get out the exit nearest track 5 go up stairs and make a right allll the way to miltarstrasse and then your quick right on lonstrasz the just find the building number. The street then changes once u get near the number but just ask an u should find it.

The hostel itself was great -- Very clean, nice staff, cool bar. I made a handful of friends in a short period of time here. The bathroom is shared by 12 people so timing can be a challenge. I wasn't quite a fan of the neighborhood the hostel was located in; it was pretty seedy. And if you are there on a weekend, be prepared for a block party in the street.

Langstars was a really great hostel. The place is designed well for people to come and socialise in the downstairs bar and you get a free drink every night! My favourite thing about the place was the staff. They were all very friendly and genuine people. My favourite was the girl with dreadlocks hahaha ;) . I would definitely stay here again
