The staff while nice tended to be smoking outside or chatting amongst themselves more than normal hostel staff. Also, all the staff was not local. Maybe it was because I visited in May but the atmosphere was dead.
The staff was very friendly and the hostel had a very warm atmosphere. At least two families were currently in residence, which could make things a bit awkward, but as they were lovely people, it was not a problem. I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone traveling to Naples.

The hostel is very conveniently located the centre of everything you could wish to see in Bath. Staffs members are friendly and despite previous comments, the bar downstairs should not give you any trouble as long as you remember to bring earplugs. On the downside, the washrooms are in dire need of a plumber as most of the sinks and toilets leak. All in all, the hostel could use a good spring cleaning, though the rooms are quite nice. Some of the windows don't close, so bring warm pyjamas.
Loved it! What makes Swiss Cottage a great place to stay? A beautiful building located in a safe neighbourhood 15 min aways from downtown. Friendly and genuinely interesting staff members. A pub located in the hostel where you can have a reasonably priced pint and meet other travellers easily and painlessly. Clean washrooms, including hot showers. 3 free computers in the lounge + wireless. Curtains around the bunks that gives a rare sense of privacy. It is a place that you want to return to.
