Really clean, really nice. Was a very quiet hostel. It didn`t encourage people to mingle. But it was really well organized! Very very happy with my stay. Thanks! Also, fairly easy to find seems as there is a `Cinema` on the corner! You can`t miss it.

One of the cleanest hostels I've been to, supremely friendly staff and it's rather value for money too, considering how expensive things get in switzerland.

Nice place to stay, only 10 mins walk from the train station! Very clean, great staff and cool interior decoration making us feel like home. Would definitely come back here again!

With a great staff, comfortable, inviting common areas, a laundry machine and lockers, this hostel was a delight. Located a stone's throw from the train station, which was very convenient and you couldn't really hear the trains from the dorms, which was a plus.

The bathroom in the morning was a bit dirty

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hello, sorry to hear about the bathroom. You have probably used it after some non respectful people. We will try to check the bathroom earlier in the future. Best regards

Les chambres manqueraient de quelques rangements (porte manteau, étagère, table de nuit ?), mais tout est bien organisé à part cela.

Very warm welcomeat the desk. Hostel located very close to city center, optimal for hanging out. Room very clean, as well as the toilet. Only point to be improved: add dark curtains, otherwise sun lits the room up too early in the morning, making it hard to keep on sleeping.

Hello, thanks for your nice comment. If you wish to avoid sun light early morning, you just have to close the shutters. Maybe you didn't think about it. You will know for next time :-) . Virginie

Everywhere in Switzerland is over priced, this is about the best you can do. I was impressed by how quiet the hostel was for its proximity to the train station, the bedrooms are on the opposite side so sleep is not disturbed by noise from the trains. Helpful staff. A shame that breakfast, towels and printing are not included in the price. At many other places printing your next travel ticket is free or 10 cents, so 40 cents per page is a micro example of how over priced this country is.

Absolutely fantastic experience. The place was spotless with great rooms and very clean shared bathrooms. Fantastic location, right by the train station, and incredible views from our balcony. Only downside is reception is closed from noon to 3, but that's a small complaint in an overall top-notch experience.

Shower room has minor problem, just too open. People from outside can see when someone walk in or out.
