    Fabulous

    I had a nice stay at Biber hostel. It was easily located by train from the airport. The surrounding neighborhood is beautiful with lots going on during the night and daytime. Once you hike up the staircase to reception you’ll be greeted warmly. I was given a complimentary chocolate bar since it was my 1st time in Switzerland which was super sweet of the lady. The room was a little bit tight but if your roommates are tidy it’s not too bad. The beds are comfy and the patio on the roof is great too

    Very Good

    Good location, friendly staff. But the problem was the people who staying with you in the room. You wouldn’t know what kind of people staying with you. Especially those never take any consideration for other people one.
