Great hostel! It's located right near Zurich's most happening bar scene and even has a very fun bar with live music located in the hostel itself. Owner Lucas is a great guy, a bar regular John is great company. In Zurich, this is where you want to stay!

Terrible neighborhood. All night music playing. Small stinki rooms. Shower and toilet together for more than 15 people lined up. The girl at reception was cool. Breakfast average.

we had a very comfortable stay - nice place with a good bar and very friendly staff. bedroom clean with reading light and power at every bed and large secure lockers - however no kitchen and bathrooms (in top floor dorm) not great... shower didn't drain properly and in eves so couldn't stand up straight whilst having to hold shower head also shower wasn't cleaned. Expensive (but it is Switzerland i guess!)

Langstars is a sick hostel. Yes it's expensive but its the cheapest place you'll find with the absolute friendliest staff and best vibes. The location is perfect and I never had to take public transportation anywhere which is key because I needed to save every penny I had just to eat in Zurich!! Anywho go to langstars have a coffee in the morning and a couple beers at night all in the same location!

Like everything else in Zurich, this hostel is pretty expensive. But it was also the most fun hostel I've stayed in (out of five this year). The bar has all sorts of live music on the weekends, and the staff are friendly and fun. Definitely would recommend if it's in your price range.

Except for the location is kinda not very classic all is fine. You have wifi in your room, at least mine. Breakfast is fine. Staff are nice. As a bar, The French band they have Saturday night was not very good honestly...

It was such a great time at Langstars! The reception is at the same time a bar where you will meet some zurich-locals! The stuff is very friendly- I was there at the weekend and they had some live concerts in the bar for free. I honestly recommend this hostel if you are open-minded and not just want to see the "touristic stuff". You will come in touch with the locals, and you wont feel like a tourist anymore, although the nightlife in zurich ist really nice!

Not really good hostel unfortunately. The staff was gentle but the location is poor (unless you really want to party only), and the room wasn't particularly special for the high price (although everything is expensive in Zurich, so price is not really their fault). In general I would suggest you to save more money before going and to stay in a hotel there.

WAS SOOOO GOOD STAYING HERE! Loved the street (bohemian party-district) and the great staff. Met some cool locals at the bar. Several times a week live concerts and crowded bar. Rooms were basic (logically, for it’s the cheapest option in town) but everything you need is there. Everyday good cleaning. Only can recommend it! Thought Zurich will be a bit boring, but this place is in the middle oft the coolest area. Multicultural, Party-mille! I will come back!

There aren't enough bathrooms - you can use those on other floors if they're not already being used, but in my experience, they were. The door to our room kept jamming, keeping us locked inside. I also found the directions from the train station absolutely woeful, though it might have been my interpretation. Definitely study a map before you look for this place! The free drink at the bar was nice, and there was a good atmosphere there at night. The breakfast wasn't great, but it was freeee...

Me and my friends really enjoied at lang stars hostel, there is a bar downstairs where you get out and have 1 free drink for each day, the staff was really kind and everything is very clean. The only disadvantage is that there is no kitchen to cook for yourself you have only microwave.

Great atmosphere down in the bar area. Seems to attract all of the friendly travelers as well. I had a blast staying here.

Area was a bit sketchy but I had no problems walking around at night. Bar downstairs was lively and full of locals, even during Xmas day. Internet was the fastest i've had in Europe. The only things lacking was an elevator (I stayed on the 4th floor) and a working kitchen. My room had a kitchen but the stove was not plugged in (What a tease). There was a fridge and a microwave though. Overall, good but plug that stove in so we could save money cooking and it would be great!

it is illegal to have a stove in the dorm, and the smell of a kitchen inside the dorm wouldn't be nice for the others.... still you find the cheapest Food of Zurich in our area

Hotel located around 15 to 20 mins walking distance from main train station. The reception is actually at the bar, which may sound strange, but it was OK and the staff was really friendly. It is well located in a street with bars clubs and restaurants, but a little strange due to many Stip Clubs and apparently some "strange"woman walking on the street. Anways, it was quite OK for the night and the room asa clean and OK. Breakfast was good.

Good hostel for such an expensive city, just a few minutes walking from the old downtown.

It's not located in the best part of Zurich, didn't really feel safe walking around the area at night. There were a few incidents in the dorm I was staying in. When I voiced my concerns to the staff, they happily changed my reservation from mixed dorm to female free of charge which was a relief. It's very close to the main station and city center.

Loved it!!!! Had such a good time! This backpacker's located in the middle of the party street of Zurich. It's an interesting bohemian area (red light, multicultural, arty), but not dangerous at all.. Staff is great, met locals at the bar and saw some cool live acts there. Zurich's massively overpriced and therefor it's not cheap staying there, but I guess you can't find anything cheaper which is inclusive breakfast. If I'm ever in Zurich again, I'll for sure be staying there!!

While expensive compared to other countries, hostel was cheap for Zurich. Would happily stay here again if back in Zurich. Included breakfast was better than most.

The hostel is in a trendy area. Lots of shops, eateries, bars, nightclubs along the street. However it gets a bit too noisy at night, when the bars and nightclubs swing into action. (There's a bar on the ground floor of the hostel. When I was there, a live band was performing from 10pm until midnight.) Other than the noise, my room is pretty comfortable (with free bedsheets and free wifi). The stay includes a simple breakfast.
