Location

When you step out of our front door you'll be in the bustling heart of Zürich's old town, Niederdorf, on a sweet little pedestrian street. We're a 5-minute walk from the Grossmünster, the city's landmark 12th century cathedral, and an 8-minute walk from the famous shopping street, Bahnhofstrasse. Getting here is easy – we're only half an hour from Zürich Airport via public transport and a 5-minute tram ride and short stroll from the main train station.

If you're feeling sociable, pick a bed in one of our mixed or female-only dorms. They all have lockers so you can keep your things safe and sound. Prefer privacy? Our twin and quad rooms give you plenty of space. We've got toilets and showers on every floor, plus laundry facilities in case you didn't pack enough pairs of socks.

    Haven’t had any problems, staff are really very helpful and friendly. The hostel is very compact - small , however, that didn’t cause any major discomfort. Would definitely stop over Here next time .

    It's a decent enough place, but nothing special. Zurich hostels are all overpriced but it is still expensive. Staff were really nice and friendly! Kitchens are basic and very limited in utensils, not the cleanest. Weird smell from the upstairs one. Roof terrace is a great spot. Read the house rules before booking. Lovely part of old town.

    We only stayed one night, but everything was fine. It's a hostel, so you get what you get! Easy walk from the Zurich HB so that makes it very appealing.

    When I got there as the reception opened the staff member was very flustered, obviously was rushing to get to work. This places doesn’t have a lift and there are many flights of stairs so if you have big luggage, it’s not the best. There are little lockers in the room for more valuable belongings but that’s about it. Showers were pretty good in my option.

    At the time of booking, I paid 10 euros out of the 70 euros. Thus 60 euros was supposed to be paid at the time of arrival. However, the hostel made me pay the full amount when I arrived! Additionally, bed linens were not free. Since we live in a time where you go to hostels and it is almost expected that linens are free, they need to make it better known on their description that linens are not free. Additionally, just in case you care, the hostel has a TON of stairs and no elevator.

    Rooms are left the way previous people stayed in them- blankets not in beds or multiple in one bed makes it hard to know what beds are taken or not taken. Bathrooms were dirty.
