room is too small, nobody can move if four persons were present there.

The staff behavior is extremly rude. They should improve their reception and kitchen timings. It would be great if they disclose everything beforehand rather than giving a shock after reaching there.

I read most of previous comments said negative about this hostel. But it doesnt seems so. This hostel is very comfortable and I really like it. Friendly staff, very clean and has good wifi connectivity.

Never encountered ruder staff. The kitchen closes at lunch time, and they refuse to open it. There isn't a social vibe here, literally just a bed and shower. That being said, if you want a cheap place to stay in a good location give it a go.. If you can deal with rude service.

The price of this hostel is very good considering it is Switzerland, and the location is also good. However, the rooms/hostel itself were outdated and not kept very clean. The kitchen is shut from 11-3, so you cannot have lunch in there. And also found the staff to be quite rude; there was one guy on the desk in particular who was not very pleasant. I would recommend it if you're looking for somewhere cheap, but there are nicer hostels around.

The location is great; close to the city center and walking distance to major restaurants a bars/pubs. The staff is very nice and accommodating, when they are there. No staff available from around 21:00- 08:00 so if you have a problem then it's up to you to figure it or just deal with it. The hostel itself is quite unclean, smells badly and the beds are very squeaky. It's really not worth what you pay, but I believe it's the cheapest accommodation within that area.

We were told in reception that breakfast was not included. Reasoning it was too expensive and since two years they not include it... So now back at home I've just re-read their page (in spanish) at hostelworld.com and says it's included! It was misleading, and should be corrected: ''El desayuno es incluido'' (sic).

The 74% rating is a bit deceiving because I really didn't like this hotel/hostel all that much but the location and price were both good. I didn't feel as though it was the cleanest or most comfortable place to stay
