    This was my first time staying in a hostel, and the Youth Hostel in Basel definitely set the bar very high! I had a wonderful experience, surrounded by beautiful architecture, interiors and friendly faces. The staff was really helpful, they answered all my questions and helped me with anything! They are doing a great job in taking care of the hostel, vey clean and tidy. The area is perfect, very quiet and just a few minutes walk from the city center.

    It was a little more expensive than hostels I’m used to but worth it compared to the other options. The location and cleanliness were solid.

    Located in a beautiful little area, a short walk from a tram stop. Had a nice modern feeling, in an area with a lot of history.

    This is not a youth hostel. This is a cheap hotel for families. I only saw kids and their parents, no travelers or backpackers. The "buffet breakfast" was bread with butter/Nutella and some fruits and cheese. 5 CHF for a towel is not fair for a so-called "youth hostel". Of course the accommodation itself was cozy and safe, but not worth the money in my opinion. Perhaps it's good for a night when in an emergency. I will not return, and I don't recommend this place for backpackers.

    There's almost no common spaces and confortable chairs to sit. Bathrooms were small and you had to press a button everything 30 seconds to get hot water. Wifi worked pretty poorly. Just avoid this place, there's better alternatives
