It's about a 15-20 minute walk from the station and old town. I was on the 3rd floor which is where the common room is so was great for meeting people. The bar down stairs is also really good for meeting people especially if you're there over the weekend which I was because it gets pretty busy due to the live music. A cleaner came in every day and made sure the bathroom was clean. There was only 1 between 12 of us which wasn't ideal if you needed the toilet in the morning! Overall a great stay

If you don't factor in price the hostel itself is quite good. The staff were lovely and incredibly helpful, especially the blonde girl working in the cafe. Spacious area, there are quite a few stairs to get up there, and there were 2 bathrooms in the dorm which was great. The beds are creaky, small and quite uncomfortable.

Well I would be able to comment on this place if the staff didn't lie to me. I called multiple times regarding my travel arrangements and the staff on duty said they would be at reception waiting for me at the agreed time. I show up 5 minutes before, no answer, no one around. I called and called again and the 'emergency number' on the door was disconnected. Garbage. Should not be charged.

This was the more expensive hostel we stayed at and with less facilities and confort at all.

First off, great location right in the red light district (not being sarcastic). Plenty of bars and strip clubs around. Hostel itself has a nice atmosphere and it's easy to meet people at the bar downstairs. Room/bed were great, very clean. Bathrooms were also very clean. Only major complaint is that I did not get hot water for 2 days despite informing the staff... they said just to wait till the boiler restarted but it appeared to be broken. Staff were otherwise very helpful.

Great, clean, and fun atmosphered hostel. Large rooms and plenty of space to move around. Large lockers to put your things. One of the most spacious hostels I've been too! Would come back again! I wish they had an elevator because the hike up to the fourth floor was the only thing unpleasant about my stay! Very safe hostel!

Very noisy at night...very low sleep quality

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.

The hostel was located in a fantastic area. Close to the main train/bus station. You receive some chocolate and a free beer coupon upon arrival.

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.

This hostel was in a good location in comparison to the old town but keep in mind it is on the party street in Zurich, a lot of very "different" characters on this street I would not suggest walking out at night by yourself. It also stayed very loud outside until about 5:30am. The staff were friendly and nice, they had plugs in the lockers which was great. The common room and bar were conducive for making friends in the hostel.

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
