Stayed in the 20 bed female dorm. Lockers are available for "free" (need a 2€ coin to use itit; get coin back). Location: secluded across the riverriver, 15 minutes from town. There is a lake close by with a 1-2 mile trail around it (pretty & peaceful). Breakfast is included in the cost but if you arent a member of Swiss Hostels it is an extra 6£ per night. Was a little pricey for me, but overall it was a good hostel.
Staff was extremely unfriendly. Room was ready by 1 o'clock however they made us sit there and wait until 3 just because it's "policy". Location was awful and they lied about bus ticket prices and we ended up overpaying. I would never stay here again.
The hostel was a nice place to stay and I really enjoyed the breakfast. The only downside was that I was unable to connect to the wifi when I was in my room.

The staff was very friendly, especially when asking about what to see around the city. Everything was kept clean and I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere around the hostel. The location is maybe a twenty-minute walk from the city center which isn't the best, but there's a bus that can take you there.

If you are a large group of pre-teens or elderly this hostel is for you, but if you're a solo traveller in your twenties looking to make friends the same age as you probably try another hostel. I had a 20 person dorm all to myself though, so that was nice. Linens were a little dirty but I was only there one night. Not a terrible hostel but definitely not the best I've encountered in my journey.
Great location location just outside the city centre up in the hills. You get a great view walking down from the hostel into town. Staff were very friendly. Breakfast was great.
The Assistant Manager (forgetting her name right now) was extremely helpful and sooo nice! Great breakfast and extremely clean hostel. This is a hostel I use for group trips that I take and personal ones, so its a recurring one and will continue to do so. Yes, location is 15-20 min walk from town, but its Europe. Might be a bit more expensive that other hostels, but its Switzerland with Breakfast, so not bad. Be aware closed during certain times so plan ahead. Overall good value for Switzerland.
