It's the new age hostel: clean, safe, industrial and cold Oct 06, 2017
If there's one thing you can expect from Switzerland, it's quality! They excel at just about everything, this hostel included. I spent 2 nights here and I would recommend it.

Pros:

* Good location. About 15 minutes by S-bahn from the central terminus so it's not really in the "old town"/city centre, but easily accessible given trains run from the wee hours of the morning to late at night.

* Safe - both the hostel and the rather rich neighbourhood it's in. Don't be put off by the dark walk up the hill to the hostel. It's safe!

* Free and amazing buffet breakfast

* Nice clean beds, I also like that the lockers and sink of each room are separated from the beds by a wooden sliding door thus giving privacy and silence to those sleeping whilst the early morning risers or late night stragglers can pack/unpack without fear or guilt of waking up the roommates

* Decent wifi in public rooms

* Self contained: they have a pub, meals (for sale), etc. They even sell swiss knives!

* Friendly and more importantly, knowledgeable staff

* There's a lift/elevator!!

Cons:

* It's really a boarding place is what it is. Zero sense of "community feel", it almost felt like a low cost boarding hostel

* Would be good to have a self service kitchen. The best you can hope for is a microwave

* Toilets could be a lot cleaner

* They need more bathrooms per floor

As mentioned, I would heartily recommend this hostel as it does its job - provides quality sleep and breakie at an affordable price (for Swiss standards). But don't expect that hostel warm fuzzy here. You're really in a clean big building. That's all!

Nice bed and good breakfast May 11, 2010
Zurich hostel is not in the centre of town. You have to take tram 7 from the train station(Sf4) and walk 5 minutes. Be sure to buy a 24hr transport card(SF8)because this will safe you some money.

The hostel is big, clean and breakfast is very nice. They also serve a great dinner for about SF17. There are lockers in the rooms and a sink. Bathrooms are in the hall. The comman room is big and there are computers, lounge seats and a bar.

I really enjoyed my stay and highly recommand it.
