    This hostel is beautiful and just a few steps from the river. I would highly recommend. Very clean and lots of recommendations of where to go. Lots of families and the food was good that was prepared.

    This hostel is great! It looks beautiful, is well situated, the rooms are perfect and there is a very convenient bike room. However laundry is too expensive: 15 Francs for the staff to do it (not allowed to do it ourselves) and they lost some of my socks. But that’s the only minus.

    Extremely good and clean facilities. Staff is really really nice and helpful. Breakfast is very good. The location is ok. Not very very central but in a beautiful and quiet part of the city. Prices are high but this is Switzerlands. I definitely recommend it.

    I was very pleased with my stay at Youthhostel Basel! The staff members were incredibly friendly, accommodating, and helpful whilst my friend and I were trying to navigate our way around town and to the airport in the early hours of the morning. The rooms were clean, stylish, and included an ensuite sink which made getting ready in the morning very easy! The location was beautiful and the atmosphere was very relaxing! I would definitely stay at Youthhostel Basel again!

    Loved the experience but: - Hated to sleep in a terry cloth's fitted sheet - why the mattress was not covered with a regular cotton sheet? - it's very uncomfortable and somehow disgusting - The blond guy with a black earring that was working at the check out, should not work in tourism. It was not only a personal situation, he is really arrogant and very unpleasant with people.

    Loved my stay here! First time in Basel and when I saw the private bedrooms I was in love and was really hoping for a room like the pictures showed. I was not disappointed. I loved the balcony and the large floor to ceiling windows. Curtains blocked a lot of light so sleeping in if needed is not an issue. The large tall ceilings felt roomy and spacious, and who can’t say no to cement and light wood furniture?! Extremely cozy and relaxing feel to the room. I loved my stay here!

    Great location. Perfectly comfortable. The only down side was that a new person came in the dorm to sleep at about 3am, which was rather disconcerting!

    Extremely clean and modern hostel (really nice interior design and furnishings), and fantastic location in town. I only stayed one night, and I felt it didn't really have an atmosphere though. Of course, if you're in a group it would be great. The downstairs area could really do with a kitchen for the guests, or even some lounges. A bit dead. Very nice staff though! :)

    Nice hostel with a cool minimalist design, located in a pretty and quiet corner of Basel within walking distance of everything. For the amount of money paid the rooms were a bit basic. In the dorm room, there were no power sockets next to the beds, towels aren't included and you have to make your bed yourself (which doesn't really bother me, but considering the place isn't cheap it seemed odd). Decent free breakfast, nice staff. Toilets could've been cleaner. Overall, reasonably good.
