Reviews (7.6 Very good)
Friendly staff, we met an awesome girl named Neya who knew so much about the city and really offered to help out as much as possible! Wish we spent more time at this hostel to get to know everyone and felt very safe with our belongings in this hostel. The breakfast is amazing and hope to see these guys again on our way back home!
Next to bar street. May be noisy till midnight
Very nice hostel. Location is globally good but located next to the "hottest" street of Zurich. People looking for quiet should consider finding another place. Otherwise, very good price/quality rate!
Before my arrival I`ve read different references and I was ready to face all the negative aspects of the hostel that it`s dirty, shabby with impolite staff. In reality it turned out to be better than expected with quite clean rooms and bathroom, good central heating (for December it`s quite critical). However, the breakfact variety is quite limited, so don`t expect a lot. Definitely good value for money, good location, suitable for a short stay!
Great atmosphere and warm staff
