Awesome hostel. It's winter so the place was empty, but the facilities were fantastic and staff was really friendly.
I had a very good sleep here. Nothing to complain about!
Really nice hostel, very comfortable and clean.
The staff here were nice and helpful with suggestions of what to do in the city. The kitchen had everything and was always extremely clean. The bathrooms as well were clean. Wifi worked well throughout the hostel. However, the common room was very quiet and unsocial. As well, I found that more older men stayed here and I was constantly hit on which made me very uncomfortable. Also beds are pushed together so you are sleeping directly beside the other person.
This hostel felt very clinical, the city itself is very expensive. I arrived and was handed a key card for my room and was told it was the third floor, I was not shown around. atmosphere didn't really exist. The hostel looked clean, the showers were not great, I was also bitten a bit while I was there but did not see what by. Shame really as it is the most reasonable place in Basel, I would probably stay again only for the price and location.
The journey was excellent! The hostel is excellent too! I will recommend it to my friends.
In general the two nights I spent here were good value for money and were quite pleasant. A slight negative was that some showers were not as clean as I would like.

This hostel was perfect! Good wifi, common room is large, kitchen is so clean.... also all generations are staying. I will be back next time also.
I would totally recommend this hostel. The staff was super nice and helpful when we made a mistake with our reservation. The rooms where clean and nice, showers and bathrooms are fine, and the location fantastic - just down one street from the central station. You also got free tickets to all the public transport in the city with was so nice. You get to see the beautiful city and ride around in cute little trams. Good hostel!
Everything was great, especially the kitchen area. The rooms are way too hot to sleep in without a fan or properly opened windows. The windows in our room were restricted as you could access a roof from there. Other than that, no complaints.
The hostel was very clean-and huge lockers-the biggest I have ever seen. Also, a good location near the rail station. Two downsides (1) Beds we're VERY close together (2) No atmosphere to speak of-just large tables. Sofas, pub crawls, etc would help.
