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.

    Good hostel in terms of cleanliness and all, but more like a hotel in a lot of ways. No atmosphere, but very clean and easy to navigate.

    Manejan el Hostel como si fuera un hotel con lo bueno y lo malo. Bueno: es muy organizado, limpio y ofrecer una gran variedad de facilidades cómo entretenimiento (pagos), comida y bar. Lo malo es que se pierde un poco la relación que uno entabla con los encargados de los Hostel donde el servicio es más personal con cada cliente. Por ejemplo, el día que llegue estaba enfermo y necesitaba una dieta especial (arroz blanco, ninguna locura) y como no tienen cocina pedí si me lo podía hacer, imposible

    Para llegar tenes que combinar dos s-bahn y las indicaciones de la página no son claras (tomas el 8, te bajas en stockerstr y tomas el 7), el lugar aunque lejos está bueno y el desayuno es genial

    The Good: - Breakfast - Security - Value for Money in Zurich The Bad: - Beds are uncomfortable - Bathrooms can get dirty quickly and are not cleaned super frequently - Absolutely 0 atmosphere - Location is quite far from Zurich I won't be staying here again for sure - will just find an Airbnb or hotel and pay the extra cash. Not really worth saving the money to stay here in my opinion.

    Clean facilities, good WiFi, plug outlet and night light in your bed, and lovely spread for the breakfast. These are the only good attributes. The hostel is located a distance from the city centre, one staff was quite abrupt, or maybe that’s just the Swiss! There was NO atmosphere at this hostel. This hostel is more like a two star hotel, not a place to go if you want to meet fellow travellers. .
