Property Description

This youth hostel is a showpiece. The architects Buchner & Bründler signify innovative and modern architecture. New features are combined with existing aspects in Basel. Together with the construction of the youth hostel, the architects were also responsible for the Swiss Pavilion at the World Expo in Shanghai. An international orientation like youth hostels is therefore also normal for the architects.

The youth hostel is available for guests from all over the world. The new building was reopend with 234 beds in different room categories (double room to a room for 6 persons). The entrance lobby has an impressive look due to the transparency of the reception area, lounge and dining room. The combination of old and new features can be seen from the outside and perceived inside – everything is based on high architectural standards. The rooms are smaller, but still comfortably appointed.

Latest Review

" I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights as I was watching a Swiss beatbox tournament, most of the competitors stayed at the hostel so they had certain rules about beatboxing in the hostel (such as where to beatbox if you want to late at night) which made perfect sense. It was good that they accounted for this and it shows that they consider every detail. The breakfast was great and I have no complaints there. I’ll definitely be coming back next year. "
