Property Information:

Once upon a time it was a historic 17th-century house serving the people of Solothurn as a trading and customs house, a warehouse, a theatre and finally as a schoolhouse.

A modern steel and glass construction was put into the house and it was opened as a youth hostel in 1994. The architecture highlights the separate areas for sleeping, recreation and seminars. The bedrooms, for example, are little houses within a house - forget the sleeping bag, you'll dream the Nordic way here.

Anyone who drops in at the Youth Hostel Solothurn can experience a thing or two! And you can take 'dropping in' literally - the Aare cycle route leads right past the youth hostel. The hostel is worth visiting just to look at the modern steel and glass construction within the historic 'Am Land' customs house. In the evening, the (old) town just round the corner draws you into its dreamy narrow streets, cosy pubs and legendary range of cultural and leisure activities for the young and young at heart.

    Not much of an atmosphere created here. Bland building. Otherwise everything was fine. Nice breakfast. Good location. Thanks
