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.

    Easy access to public transportation, close to city center. Spacious building with all kinds of amenities. Zurich is expensive in general, so pricing was not surprising. Would stay again.

    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.

    Clean, calm and friendly. My only gripe - and this is a minor one - is that they did not have the usual miso soup and rice available at breakfast. I was rather looking forward to it.

    The hostel has good facilities, is super clean and the staff is friendly and helpful! However, as many reviews already pointed out, don't expect any atmosphere here. It feels more like a hotel, so it's difficult to meet and talk to other travelers.

    The hostel had a hotel feel to it. It was in a nice residential part of town and very close to tram stops and a small train stop. It was very clean and the rooms were very nice. My only complaint is I wish they had a kitchen and fridge. They did have very yummy breakfasts though.

    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.
