    I chose this hostel because of the beautiful pictures online and wasn't disappointed. It was one of the prettiest hostels I've ever seen and has a very relaxing atmosphere. I stayed in a single room for one night and slept very well. The breakfast was really nice and everything was perfectly clean. It's a very quiet area but you can easily walk into the city. If I come back to Basel I will definitely stay here again.

    This place is great! I only stayed a night waiting for the apartment I was staying in for my time in Basel but the reception was excellent, the breakfast has coffee included in the bed cost which helps justify the high rates since coffee and a pastry could easily be 10fr in the city. The room was great and everything was clean. This is the most I've ever paid for a hostel but I can't say it wasn't also with the price. Would definitely recommend!

    This hostel is great! It looks beautiful, is well situated, the rooms are perfect and there is a very convenient bike room. However laundry is too expensive: 15 Francs for the staff to do it (not allowed to do it ourselves) and they lost some of my socks. But that’s the only minus.

    Extremely good and clean facilities. Staff is really really nice and helpful. Breakfast is very good. The location is ok. Not very very central but in a beautiful and quiet part of the city. Prices are high but this is Switzerlands. I definitely recommend it.

    Great hostel overall! Good food served, nice atmosphere, chiq rooms, decent washrooms (it's a hostel). The staff were rude to me for late checkout meanwhile I tried to empathize with them over jetlag to no avail. 20CHF is steep!

    Loved my stay here! First time in Basel and when I saw the private bedrooms I was in love and was really hoping for a room like the pictures showed. I was not disappointed. I loved the balcony and the large floor to ceiling windows. Curtains blocked a lot of light so sleeping in if needed is not an issue. The large tall ceilings felt roomy and spacious, and who can’t say no to cement and light wood furniture?! Extremely cozy and relaxing feel to the room. I loved my stay here!

    Great location. Perfectly comfortable. The only down side was that a new person came in the dorm to sleep at about 3am, which was rather disconcerting!

    The building is beautiful! However, a big part of the experience of staying at a hostel is the staff. One man who worked the front desk seemed to have no ability—at all— to hide his annoyance or modulate the volume of his voice. I was sitting in the lobby one day and watched him YELL at every single guest he interacted with. He actually yelled at and sent a young family away because they arrived to check in during his coffee beak. Crazy!

    Extremely clean and modern hostel (really nice interior design and furnishings), and fantastic location in town. I only stayed one night, and I felt it didn't really have an atmosphere though. Of course, if you're in a group it would be great. The downstairs area could really do with a kitchen for the guests, or even some lounges. A bit dead. Very nice staff though! :)

    Shout out to the absolute best staff I’ve ever seen! Reto my man - if it wasn’t for you I’ve would have given 4 or something. Thank you so much for your kind help and for you to really take care of us. Thanks man! Hello hostel - say thanks to your boy Reto. He did a job much more than he was suppose! Thanks again.
