Not far from downtown - only a small walk. Good breakfast. They rented us bicicles, the best way to go to the cities in the mountains. Helpful staff.


In general there is nothing to complain its just that the place doesn't fit my style of hostels. No lockers in the room but there are some around common space. As usual with HI the place is off the center. Don't like the way the put up the price on Hostelworld. Since as a non member you have an additional fee of 6CHF a night. Members should get a discount so that always max price is shown! Beside that, they have a great breakfast buffet. If school classes around it might take some time!


Really good place to stay! We got our laundry done while we were there (15 CHF total, 7.50 for each of us). They folded our laundry and left us a really cute note! The facilities were SO clean and they had the best continental breakfast I've ever had: various cheses, meats, cereals, breads and yogurts as well as amazing coffee, juice, tea and fruit! Overall, it was amazing!
