Stayed here hoping to meet people as I was travelling on my own but only families and Asian people stay at this hostel. I guess that makes sense why there's no bar in the hostel. If you're travelling solo and want to meet people do not stay here. Apart from that the hostel is very clean, beds are good and staff is excellent.

Nice staff, great kitchen. Clean and cosy room. Close to railway station. Very comfortable stay except that the reception girl with glasses on duty 16th May morning was extremely rude, impolite. If you see such a girl when checking in, be careful.

Just the TVroom could be more valued or have more "games" in the hall

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!

Affordable hostel by Switzerland standards. Facilities were really good, big kitchen and common room, room was clean and with a secure locker. Some of the bunkbeds seemed very close together, but my one was grand! It's a little bit of a walk from the central station in the wrong direction from the main attractions, but that's a good way to see a place and with the free mobility card you can get trams around the city if you're tired of walking. Not a typical hostel crowd but people were friendly!
