This is a terrific place--clean, well-located, friendly staff with relevant answers, well-equipped, and very affordable for all of that. A great value.

Everything was perfect except the bathroom. No soap for a long period of time and the light in one of the women's stalls was not working making the stall unusable in the pitch dark. The community aspect of cooking dinner in the shared kitchen was pretty cool. This is not a party city, therefore not a party hostel. A nice place for a nice value, I would recommend it. Just bring your own soap. And a flashlight. Oh and they sell beer at the reception desk!

The staff and the overall atmosphere of the hostel was friendly. The bathrooms and the shared room I was in was tidied and cleaned daily. The price was higher than the typical price of hostels (but then again, it is in Basel, an expensive Swiss city). Overall, I enjoyed my stay at YMCA Hostel Basel.
