Accessible from Zurich HB around 15 minutes of walk (1.2km). With clean sheets and bathroom. Wifi connection is super fast and free. Guarantees safety of your belongings and you can leave your things even after you check out.

We chose to stay in this hostel for a last minute booking for a surprise 18th celebration over New Year. We knew that room availability would be limited and it was and this was one of the only places in Zurich that could accommodate all 7 of us. The Hostel itself is actually located above the bar.

In one of the most expensive cities in the world, it's a tough thing to find an accommodation for low budget travelers. This is the place for backpackers located only 5 minutes from the center (the other hostel is a little bit far away). You get a warm welcome with a chocolate branch and a croissant. It's basic, but clean....

Like anything in Switzerland it was expensive for what you get but a bed and a clean room is what we got. Lacking in any cooking facilities except the microwave. A free drink on the hot day we arrived was welcome. Excellent storage.

Very friendly and helpful staff. It's in walking distance to all public transportation and old town for sight seeing. The accommodation was nice and comfortable. The shower actually had hot water, very rare for hostels these days. Is abit pricey though. Paid $46 for 1 night.
