Overall good hostel! In a nice area and easy to get to from Zurich airport. A lot of outlets to charge your devices for each bed, and theres a reading light incase your roommates are sleeping. The common area/kitchen is a bit cramped, especially around the free breakfast time, and there are no comfy couches to sit on. Bathrooms and showers were overall clean. I stayed in a mixed dorm and felt safe! The bar at the ground level is great for a beer too!

Close metro/bus to station, walking distance within old town sites, free basic breakfast, large lockers, friendly staff, warm rooms. Bar downstairs good for meeting people. The only thing is the showers on the right has a drainage problem and the bathrooms weren't kept clean that often. I would not mind staying here again for a short trip.

It's ok for 1-2 nights. The price is good and you don't have many options in zurich. The rooms are small for 6 persons.

Incredibly expensive for what you get. 6 bed dorm definitely doesn’t have room for 6 people in it and is overcrowded. The shower is dreadful and only has a curtain there. Dreadful hostel

Great location, nice stuff. The kitchen is not that equipped (no stove or gas for cooking, only microwave) which is strange due to the fact that food in Switzerland is expensive. Only one shower room and one bathroom for each floor.
