Property Description

St. Gallen Youth Hostel is just a ten-minute walk from 'Drei Weieren', three natural pools where you can cool down in summer, with an Art Nouveau bathhouse preserved in its original form. It's also about ten minutes to the town, which is inspiring in many different ways. Antique bay windows decorate the house façades and the Abbey District – a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site since 1983 – captivates visitors with its baroque cathedral and impressive collection of manuscripts in the magnificent abbey library. The very attractive cultural life also delights residents and guests alike. Animal encounters await you in Walter Zoo adventure land and in the Peter and Paul wildlife park.

Such a nice and clean and comfortable hostel! The owner was super nice and breakfast was great. For the most part the crowd was parents with children and you will probably not meet people here. The station is super close just up a hill and you get a free public transportation card! I would go to Appenzell while you’re here! Also there’s a refrigerator but no kitchen.

My only request would be to give better directions to the hostel from the train station on your website itself. Not everybody has Internet and Wi-Fi when traveling so Google maps cannot be used.

Solid, if uninspiring hostel. The staff are kind and helpful, even checking me in early and helping me with the city card. The hostel is a bit out of the way, but it’s by a rail stop and has a nice view. Not many younger travelers, a lot of families. Ok for the price, especially In Switzerland.
