Very Good 8.0
Friendly and Comfortable
They were very friendly and even packed me a nice breakfast/lunch for my early flight. Though travelling alone I felt really comfortable staying there.

Great stay, room, and area. Will go back in Zurich again!

Very Good 8.0
Not bad
When you are paying that much for a hostel, it would be nice to not have to make your bed when you turn up, just a pet peeve of mine after being spoilt at much cheaper hostels around Europe. Otherwise it's fine, bathrooms are not ensuites, breakfast is included, lockers are coin operated (francs)

Good place to stay in Zurich
Very clean, good breakfast, and friendly staff - Silvana was especially amazing! It was a bit of a walk from the train station but the bus stop was reasonably close.
