Very friendly staff. Not right in the centre of Zurich, but good tranport links to the centre, ( approx 10 mins on tram). No kitchen facilities, but microwave and toaster provided. Social atmosphere in the communal area in the evenings. Decent hostel.

Great Hostel, very clean, Staff very friendly, breakfast was included and it was AWESOME ( not ur regular hostel breakfast), facilities were great and it was not expensive considering it is in switzerland ( 40 CHF per night, but the common mcdonalds combo costs 18 CHF) ONLY 2 THINGS: 1 there is no wifi in the rooms, only in the lobby. 2 The LOCATION IS AWFULL !!! the place is great but is very far away from the city (40 min walk to the city center) or u can pay 4,30 CHF for a single bus ticket

The rooms were very hot, I could almost not sleep. It would be great if some cooling mechanism could be though out. Not necessarily air conditioning, it might be too expensive, however any cheaper alternative would be greatly welcome!

Very good location, 4 minutes walk from the team which is very frequent and takes you right to the centre. Exspensive but where isn't in Switzerland. There was an added charge to join the youth hostel international (either for each night or a year memebeship but one was needed). The wifi only worked in the lobby which was a bit annoying as it still wasn't amazing in the lobby e.g. Wouldn't always connect.

Great for the relaxed type , not much of a party vibe , it's a fair way out of main Zurich but nice and quiet and easy to find. Staff very nice and helpful. Would recommend if your just wanting to relax. But overall good :)

Super friendly staff.. steep prices but it is Zurich so no surprises there. Location not convenient if you are looking for nightlife

The breakfast was excellent for a hostel. The hostel as a whole was clean, modern, and well-run. The room had very poor air circulation; the night when I stayed there was warm, and given the size and the number of people in it, it got very stuffy and I couldn't sleep. A fan would have done wonders.

Very expensive ( like the rest of Switzerland ) facility wise it's got everything you need but at a price. More like a hotel than hostel with families staying there with young kids etc. location is great, staff are great, rooms are great. Just $$$. Only downside on our stay was the probable sociopath we were roomed with haha but that's traveling. We had a good time in Zurich as a base to explore outer areas. Buy a 3 day train pass first up as individual trips will wreck a budget.

Great staff, very clean facilities, and comfortable bedding. Slightly out of the city, so would recommend taking the tram instead of hiking up the hill. Difficult to use lockers if you don't have loose change, however overall a great experience

Great breakfast was included in the price. Staff were helpful and friendly. About 30 min walk into town. Didn't sleep very well one night as there was so much banging from above my room and the door to the stairs slamming shut all the time.

The Youthhostel Zurich has a great atmosphere! The facilities are really clean and it is a super fun place to stay.

SO clean. I've never seen a place be cleaned so much, which is excellent. The location is a short 10 minute tram ride into the centre. A walk to lake Zurich is only 10/15 minutes too, and there's a supermarket 5 minutes away. Excellently run, good quality breakfast, with plenty of choice. Wifi available in lobby, microwave and toaster available too. Overall I very much enjoyed my stay here. Rooms are fairly basic, but nicely kept and again very clean. Separate shower and toilet facilities good!

Lockable draws under beds however its worth double checking as these did not always lock.
