City Backpacker Zurich Reviews
Close to public transportation and the heart of Zurich for a great price! Aug 13, 2011
Switzerland and Zurich in particular is an expensive place to visit, which makes this affordable hostel a gem. In the evening, the restaurants in the building complex attract very talented street performing bands. After a day touring, it was a surreal experience to be able to sit on some steps near a fountain and watch a surprisingly good band serenade the patio diners in the area.
The hostel itself is clean and well kept, though nothing outstanding can be said of the rooms, neither can anything bad. The staff is knowledgeable and there are a great many resources for travel in the public meeting area. However, that public meeting area is small and not exactly a choice place to hang out and meet fellow travelers. There is a rooftop patio that might be a great place to hang out, though the view isn’t amazing as it looks out upon very little.
Still, I stayed two nights separated by several weeks and both times I left feeling like my money was well spent for what I got, which is an important test of any establishment.
