Property Description

On the site where a school cabin served as a hostel in 1936, there now stands a spacious new-build featuring modern infrastructure, varied cuisine, a cosy bar and a 24-hour reception. Just a stone's throw from the lake shore, it's the perfect place from which to start chilled afternoons on the lake, a discovery tour of the exciting city of Zurich, or a thrilling visit to the zoo. Enjoy the hostel's quiet yet well-connected location, its sunny inner courtyard and the bright rooms, or book a seminar room for your banquet, meeting or training session. It's practical: from Wollishofen station, there is also a direct rail connection to the airport. View House Rules


Take it easy during your visit to Zürich in our laidback hostel, Youthhostel Zürich. Whether you're grabbing some budget-friendly lunch at the on-site bistro or spending the afternoon playing table football and foosball in the common room, you’ll meet like-minded travellers and friendly staff. Start your night at our very own bar, or take a beer out into the sunny inner courtyard in the afternoon. The next day, work up an appetite with an energetic game of ping pong then tuck into your free breakfast – a great way to start any day!


You’ll find us close to the lakeshore, in a quiet District 2 location that’s within easy reach of the city’s main sights. Make your Instagram followers proud by squeezing in some culture at the Museum Rietberg, or go for a dip at the outdoor pool Strandbad Mythenquai – both are 18 minutes away on foot. To reach us from Kloten Airport, get on a direct train to Wollishofen station. The journey takes 40 minutes – just enough time to read a chapter of a book and double check your reservation details.

Rooms and Dorms

You’ll find bright and spacious rooms with linen included, so you can skip squeezing in the sleeping bag. You can choose between single, double, twin and multi-bed privates with en-suites or shared bathrooms if you’re travelling in a group, or mixed or single-sex dorms if you fancy meeting new people. There are lockers for your backpack and an elevator to take you to your room.

Extras and activities

Our hostel is packed full of helpful little extras to make the most out of your stay. Spend a quiet day refreshing your wardrobe with our laundry facilities (your bunk-mates will thank you for getting those smelly socks cleaned!) or catching up with friends back home using our free Wi-Fi. Don’t want to carry your heavy bags around on check-out day? Chat to the staff at our 24-hour reception and we’ll store your luggage in our secure room for you.

    This hostel is overall very lovely. Very spacious and the staff were so helpful and polite. It's very easy to get there from the airport and into town as well. There's a few little grocery stores down the street as well which is great if you're not wanting to splurge. It's in a quiet area and the beds were comfortable. The showers and facilities were also quite spacious and clean. Breakfast was good too! They have a lot of info flyers and recommendations if you're travelling as well.

    Very clean, friendly staff, good spread of breakfast for a hostel, quite posh for a hostel, not really in the heart of the town but good accessibility with bus stops less than 5 mins walk from the hostel door, train station 9 mins walk, cycle and Lime stand right outside the hostel building. Did I say friendly staff? Very very quite which can be good or bad depending on how you like it. All in all quite happy staying here. Would come back.

    Staff are super friendly! I only stayed the night as I arrived fresh from the airport at 10:00 p.m. after two days without sleep so I didn't really get to experience the hostel properly but I liked it for it's facilities. Would recommend.

    FREE BREAKFAST — the BEST thing about this hostel. Zurich is one of the most expensive cities in the world, so the free breakfast really helped my wallet. The food was great, too. The lobby area of the hostel was massive, but the atmosphere was SOOO depressing. :( Obviously this wasn’t the Hostel’s fault. It’s just that the vibe was so boring. Everyone was to themselves. I’m used to the atmosphere being high-energy and it being easy to meet people. You won’t find that here. Otherwise, clean!

    Not good choice for walkers as the location is far from the center. Wifi was not reachable everywhere in the building. The reception staff are really welcoming and try their best to help you in the best way possible however they made me walk 500 meter to get to an ATM to pull out money as they thought their machine is not reading swiping card. The day after a guy in the reception told me that it is possible to use my swiping card on their machine. After all I was happy choosing this hostel.

    I was only there for a night, in a mixed 6 person dorm. This was the most adult like hostel I’ve stayed at, meaning more older (40+) folks and families. No kitchen, but they provide free breakfast. Setup of the room is nice where there’s a separate room first with a sink and lockers, then another door to the beds, kept it much quieter.

    Very clean! Very decent breakfast included. More of a university dorm feeling than a youth hostel though.
