Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

It is really a compact friendly backpacker with no nonsense no frills rooms. I was quite late in the night during check-in but the owner was very friendly and accommodative. I would recommend this place more than others in Schaffhausen.

The rooms are basic but clean. The bathrooms are renovated - this is nice. What was a bit difficult for me was the noise - our room and many others faced a crowded street - so even with earplugs it was not a good nights sleep. Also the hostel does not offer breakfast.

Very dear for what you get but as others have mentioned this is Switzerland. It was clean enough but seemed expensive for what was offered. The area is nice with plenty to do and we got some good food quite close to the hostel. I was sharing a room with friends but I wouldn't like to come on my own as you may probably end up sharing room with strangers and paying dearly for the pleasure

Staffs were very nice, near the attraction place. There are self-service hot water, tea and coffee for free at 1st floor. Room and bathroom are clean. A very small room. There is not elevator. Hotel is located far from train station where had to catched bus from train station to hotel.

A bit costly for a hostel (it IS Switzerland, after all!), but overall a positive experience. It can get a bit noisy at night, seeing as though it's the city centre, and there is a bar downstairs, so close your shutters if you expect to actually get some sleep (you might have trouble breathing in the summer, so it's a matter of compromise). Other than that, it is really close to where you want to be, the historical centre of the town (worth it!) basically starts downstairs and the Rheinfall is 10 min away by foot. + Proximity to city centre and Rheinfall + Wireless Internet - Price - Noisy at night - Shared bathrooms/shower
