    Cute hostel. Loved that there was a patio attached to the room and only 4 people. Staff was super nice and friendly and it’s location across from the lake so during the summer it makes for a great beach location. Not too far from train station but if your bags are heavy it could be a trek. Also, the birds are super loud in the morning.

    Great place to stay. My first experience staying in 4 bed female dorm. I was pleasantly surprised. Everyone very courteous, obliging & considerate. Enjoyed eating times in the kitchens meeting like minded travellers. Staff were extremely helpful and place was very clean. I would stay here again and recommend to everyone.

    This hostel is clean; dorms are comfortable, spacious and light; the bathrooms are very clean. The atmosphere is nice too with extremely friendly staff who went out of their way to assist with our booking and recommendations. Unfortunately, our hire car was damaged by, we suspect, people who were partying in the park. It is not the hostel's fault but it should be noted there is no secure parking on site. Also, it's a shame there is no breakfast option nor even free hot drinks in the morning.

    Great you could cook here as food out in Switzerland is so expensive. Lovely helpful receptionists. I did heaone poor girl being abused by a traveller whose luggage had gone astray...awful abuse and not her fault. She responded by offering to get the man a warm jacket if his suitcase. How lucky this hostel is to have such professional diligent staff. I was given an upgrade and had a delightful time walking by the lake. They were very organized sending a free public transport voucher beforehand.

    Hostel is clean and staff are friendly.There are lockers for each person, but the sockets aren't next to the bed which is a bit troublesome. It'd be great if there're extra toilets on each floor (currently 2 for female on 1 fl) as well. There are two kitchens there and the common area is quite spacious. Location wise it's a bit of a walk from the city centre where most attractions are but it's a nice walk along the lake if you don't have your luggage with you. There's a Migros nearby as well.

    Nice location by the lake. Staff were very helpful in answering questions and booking reservations. A fan could have been nice at night on the hotter days. Overall, a nice stay at a clean and welcoming hostel.

    Very Good

    We stayed at this hostel 2 weeks ago. It is in a quiet area, 10 minute walk to the train station and very close to the Center town, Two fully equipped kitchens. Staff helped us with ordering food delivery, we got discounts on the boat/cog train/tram excursion. Everything was clean and tidy. The only negative thing if I had to say would be the showers,and I tried 3 different ones, the water pressure was not great and they did not spray , it was more of a drip/trickle.

    I definitely do not recommend this place. First, the location is not good at all. Second, the atmosphere from that place is creepy! They don't do a good job on cleaning, but the worst part is that they asked me to change rooms even though I had my name and room type all correct. There were a group of friends that didn't want a woman in their room. I said no, so they made other people change rooms to please this specific group, which was disrespectful and rude. I will never go back there again!
