    Great hostel! Had many amenities and having breakfast for free is always a plus! Checking in was very was very easy! For as nice as the common area was the rooms and bathrooms were okay. Also the walk to the train station was extremely far (almost an hour) if you're the type of person who doesn't want to spend money on transportation. Otherwise the stay was pretty good and if I am back in Zurich I'll stay here again.

    The room was full of cigaratts smell, because some Macadonian guy who decided to smoke inside the room, with an open window. The smell was so bad, even my cloths absorbed it. The staff told this guy "you can't smoke here", and even offered him to upgrade his room to a private room for new rommates. I could not sleep in this room, and all of a sudden they didn't had any exrta place or other rooms. THEY THREW ME TO THE STREET. because I coudn't sleep in a room full of smoke. AVOID THIS PLACE!!!!!
