    Very nice hostel. Blanket smells amazing. Bathroom is very clean, the shower is a bit inconvenient since it would be turn off every 2-3 minutes while i took a shower. Buffet for luch and dinner was 20 CHF for 2 dishes, 2 desserts and drinks is worth it for Swiss. Highly recommended

    Overall this hostel is a great pick! Staff is friendly and the hostel is huge, so odds are you will make friends here at some point. Only downside is the lockers are a little pricey.

    Very modern hostel with very basic rooms and clean washing facilities. Staff are willing to help in any way they can. Only downside I would say is that the breakfast didn’t have many vegan options, it is mostly cows milk based yoghurts, cows milk for cereal, bee sourced jam,ect. However I only stayed for one night so thankfully only dealt with this once

    This hostel offers a very decent free breakfast and it is very clean, with good wi-fi connection and individual lamps/outlets. On the other hand, it is actually far away from the Old Town and sights, which means that you will be spending $8.40/day on transportation and will spend time commuting. Mind you the tram stops at 12pm. The dorm was also very noisy (ear plugs recommended) and the bed was somewhat narrow, you must pay extra if you wanna use the locker, the vibe is more quiet like a hotel.

    Comfortable stay. Clean rooms and beds. Fresh linens. Breakfast is good. Helping staff. Lot of place to hangout. 5 mins walk from the nearest tram or metro station. I recommend this place in Zurich.

    Location was beyond poor - in the suburbs, beside a school. An hour walk to and another hour from the old town and main station. No cheap supermarkets or places to eat nearby - closest Lidl a 50 min walk away! Staff were unhelpful. I went to ask a question and after being left waiting for 5mins because they were talking amongst themselves, they gave the appearance of being uninterested and bored. Laughed at my question. No atmosphere at all. Felt like a hospital. Facilities were all extra cost.
