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.

    I stayed on New Years Eve and the environment was amazing, the staff let us joined them to celebrate. Very friendly, open-minded. The facilities sparkling clean, breakfast buffet included. 10 out of 10 for sure. Is a bit far form town, but you have a train station 10 min walking, and in 45 min walking around the lake you'll be in downtown.

    The hostel was nice and the staff were friendly. It was easily accessible by the tram, and a nice place to explore the area from.

    The staff were amazing and the place was very clean! It’s a bit of a walk from the city center but if you walk by lake Zürich it can be quite scenic. I definitely would stay here again! No complaints what so ever!

    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.

    Very Good

    The facilities are okay, I've certainly seen better for the same money. It's far from the city centre, but it is well connected via trains and busses. Continental standard breakfast was good. The worst thing is that they allow alcohol in the rooms. I've had the misfortune of sharing a room (luckily for one night only) with a lady that drank the entire night, making for a loud and smelly night. This, of course, is not totally the fault of the hostel, but it was very unpleasant.

    Pricy. Not central but the neighborhood is safe and quiet. I went during COVID and it was near empty. Awful roommate - middle aged woman living in the room, food and trash EVERYWHERE attracting flies and her laundry covered the tiny room. She yelled at me all night about how she had an arrangement that no one else was supposed to be in the shared room and she was quarantine. I was so scared. Could have been avoided if staff had simply checked/cleaned the room before I arrived and moved me. Ugh

    I stayed there 2 nights. The dorm was totally full with 6 people and hasn't been clean in the days that I was there.
