Property Description

St. Gallen Youth Hostel is just a ten-minute walk from "Drei Weieren", three natural pools where you can cool down in summer, with an Art Nouveau bathhouse preserved in its original form. It's also about ten minutes to the town, which is inspiring in many different ways. Antique bay windows decorate the house façades and the Abbey District – a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site since 1983 – captivates visitors with its baroque cathedral and impressive collection of manuscripts in the magnificent abbey library. The very attractive cultural life also delights residents and guests alike. Animal encounters await you in Walter Zoo adventure land and in the Peter and Paul wildlife park. View House Rules

    Our stay at Youthhostel St. Gallen was amazing. Good-humored staff, comfortable beds, spacious facilities and a generous breakfast. The hostel is located on a hill, which offers a gorgeous view of the city. Cannot recommend this place enough!

    Close to the old town centre with plenty to see and do. Steep hill to go up and down however. Reception very helpful for eating recommendations and sights

    This hostel had nice remodeled bathrooms and lounge areas. No kitchen for guests except for a microwave. Free breakfast was simple, but good. The S21 tram is super close to the hostel and it will take you to the center of town and to the train station. The rooms were nice but had an older feel, think summer camp feel with small bunks and bare wooden furnishing. The view is amazing! The hostel is plain and quiet, but a very nice place to stay.

    Standard HI hostel and breakfast. Bathroom seemed newly renovated, which was nice! Pleasant lawn and deck area. There was hardly anyone else staying there when I was, so it was quiet, but no social atmosphere. Wifi rarely worked in the rooms, but was fine in common area. NOTE: when exiting the train station, look to the right and take the S21 tram toward Trongen (not the S12 as their directions say on the website). Get off at Birnbaumen stop, then it's a quick walk down the hill to the hostel.

    Located on the top of a fairly steep hill but overall only about a 15 minute walk to the centre. Booked a single room but got placed in a double decker room although on my own. The place was clean but quite dead - saw almost no one during my stay although I only stayed 1 night. Check in time is quite late and inconvenient although it worked well for me. The breakfast was included and not too bad.

    Never been in a hostel with less atmosphere, it’s supposedly a youth hostel but I was the youngest traveller by about 20 years. There was also a school group that congregated all over the place and were loud. My room had two older gentlemen that snored like bears all night. Check in time is 5pm and there is nowhere to leave your bag in the meantime as reception is completely closed. After walking up the massive hill to the hostel I then had to wait 2 hours for reception to open. Not worth the $$
