    ショッピング街の通りにあるので、観光しやすかったです。 ただ、夜は外が繁華街なので、割と遅くまでざわざわしていました。 それ以外は立地も良く、階段は多めですが、部屋も清潔で、共有キッチンも問題なく使えてとても良かったです。

    We stayed in an all-girls room. Very small with only 4 beds, which I liked a lot (less people to deal with/less messy). The bathrooms were a little small, but for the price totally worth it. Lockers in room, sink in room, super great! Had a great experience here and met some new friends. Definitely would stay again!

    ห้องพักเดินทางสะดวกมาก อยู่ไม่ไกลจากสถานีรถไฟมากนัก ใช้เวลาเดินราวๆ10-15นาที ทำเลดีเนื่องจากอยู่บริเวณที่ท่องเที่ยว ไม่แนะนำหากมีกระเป๋าลากใบใหญ่ เพราะตัวที่พักอยู่ที่ชั้น4ของตึก แต่พนักงานน่ารักมาก ให้ความช่วยเหลือต่างๆเป็นอย่างดี ห้องครัวเองก็มีอุปกรณ์ครบครัน แต่ในห้องพักไม่มีปลั๊กไฟของแต่ละเตียงทำให้ลำบากนิดหน่อย ห้องน้ำมีขนาดพื้นที่เหมาะสม ทำให้สะดวกเวลาใช้งาน

    Very friendly owner and staff. Good location too. The fact that clean bedsheets are extra should be revealed during booking.

    It was an okay hostel. It was in a great location and is very affordable, especially by Switzerland prices. However the rooms can be fairly cramped. Each bed does not have an individual outlet,, so depending on your bed, you may not be able to charge your device next to you. There are not individual lights for each bed and the lockers provided in each room are very small. You cannot fit your luggage in these lockers so bring a lock. Facilities are a bit old, but clean. Staff is very nice.

    Very Good

    The six person room was extremely cramped. The layout of the hostel makes it hard to get to know people because the common rooms are spread out between kitchens, reception and the rooftop. The bathrooms are kind of dirty but it could be worse. Great location and relatively cheap for being in Zurich.

    Very overpriced, as per the rest of the city. You get a mix of random old people staying here. The hostel closes down for 3 hours during the day. You are made to pay for linen. The kitchen was horrible didn’t even have oil to use. Weird and creaky hostel, common room is cramped and right near reception. I can’t think of anything I inherently liked about the hostel expect for the rooftop area but even that could do with some proper lights for nighttime.
