A brutalist concrete tower (quite an awesome architecture) with stunning views of the mountains, with comfy bunk beds and clean and modern bathroom facilities. The rooms are clean, and each bed has it's own light and plug socket, which is handy. The sink in the room is also good. The location is very good, and close to the train station.
However, we found the lady on reception not very welcoming both on arrival and when we left (as a regular youth hostel visitor across the world, one of the most uninviting staff members I have ever encountered). The breakfast was a bit basic and of average quality, and overall, we felt that the youth hostel is a tad overpriced, especially if you have to pay the "non-membership fee" (that's CHF 6/person - far too high and not properly clarified on their German-only website) and for parking (again, not specified on their website). Overall, for the amount we spent, we could have stayed in a B&B or hotel in the nearby area (we checked after our stay).
Having said that, it seemed to be very popular with families with children, for which the youth hostel caters to very well.More
