    The hostel was positioned in a lovely location, very quiet overnight and near to the station. The facilities were excellent with a well equipped kitchen and lovely spacious bedrooms. The staff were very friendly and cleanliness of the hostel was perfect. Would 100% recommend!

    Central, only a few minutes away from the train station which offers great connections to Zürich and the airport. Friendly and helpful staff. Everything is clean. Well equipped kitchen and a nice terrace! Rooms could be ventilated a bit better.

    Great hostel, which is slightly more affordable then others in Switzerland, though still a bit much for the average backpacker. Great modern hostel, average sized rooms with high ceilings. No air con, though it isn’t really needed. The people in my dorm had taken over the room a little bit which was a bit frustrating - but not the hostels fault. Near some good food areas, and some supermarkets, but a slightly longer walk to the train station and the Old City. Overall, I’d stay here again.

    Only a short walk away from the city center and the train station, which offers connections to all parts of Switzerland. Airport and Zürich are accessible within about 20 minutes by train. The room can be a bit warm and are not very spacious. The common area is cozy and the kitchen well equipped. All facilities are clean. A great terrace is available for quests. Breakfast options are available. Padlock for the lockers are provided for free, towels are not.

    beutiful hostel for very affordable price. Very good location and facilities. The kitchen is perfect. But sure why there were no travellers staying in the hostel with me. So there was no atmosphere or meeting new people at all. Just people working in Winterthur were staying there. But it can be because it was offseason and during corona. I do recommend the hostel!

    I had high expectations here but it was just okay. It was very quiet and an interesting mix of people. The staff did laundry for me for 10 euro and it was very nice. I found 2 bugs in my room. I didn’t cook in the kitchen, but it seems like a nice activity that lots of people do. I didn’t like the bed here as much as other hostels
