    Amazing hostel if you want to stay in the city center. We stayed on a Friday night and the city gets very busy, you can hear the noise in the street but thankfully the hostel staff gives you free ear plugs!

    The location is amazing . Right in the middle of the city and close to everything. Free cereal and milk or tea is a great add on.. i only hoped there were more bathrooms . My room smelled horrible but that was because of the people in it, the hostel had nothing to do with that. Maybe you could have room service pass by daily and ventilate or whatever... all in all i had a great stay in the hostel and the staff are super friendly

    A good location, but tiny rooms that feel cramped and bathrooms are the same. Overpriced and not super social, just a good place to sleep for the night.

    Well located in city centre - although street noise was an occasional problem.A very " hostelly" hostel with common room, kitchen and a social atmosphere.Good clothes washing facilities.For once, a functioning desk top computer and printer.Room a little on the small side but satisfactory.

    Great location. Very noisy and staff don’t do anything about parties in other rooms. Even at 2 in the morning. Luckily I had earplugs.

    Very well located hostel, near the centre and you get a free travel card. Staff helpful on arrival. Beds fairly comfortable. Bathrooms were not cleaned while we were there, there was hair covering the bottom of the showers and bits in the sink. The kitchen is cleaned once a week but the morning after it had been cleaned there was food everywhere, also crockery was put back dirty. There was only 1 washer and dryer available to use (for 10 CHF a go!), so long waits. Free lockers in rooms.

    A lot of extra fees associated with this hostel which made check in difficult - extra for towel, extra fee to use a credit card. When I arrived in my room, another guest had taken the bed I was assigned, and the empty bed was covered in food crumbs. This hostel offers the bare minimum, basically you are there to sleep. There is a bar downstairs that was quite noisy at night, but when I arrived it did not appear as though it was a place to meet other travellers. I would not stay here again.
