Shower area is crammed and has a curtain door while the toilets are clean. Very helpful host and wifi connection available only in the lobby. Kitchen availble till 11pm. Has...

One thing that really stand out is the location of this place is quite closed to the Lion Monument. The room wasn't cleaned enough, and the way they designed the bathroom wasn't good and quite inconvenient. Especially because this was a shared bathroom and you wanted to feel safe but you don't, as the shower only covered by a curtain...

Building is old , stairs are old and worn off...bad smell in the room and the beds was not comfortable, no wifi in your room, only one shower and one toilet for each floor. Plus the light keeps going off not only in the corridor but also when you shower since it's sensor activated. It's was so terrible...not good functioning....

One of the worst hotels/hostels I've ever stayed at without a doubt. Very unclean rooms and bathrooms. Staff seemed to be ok; but they don't really know how to manage the place. Check in is at 4 PM and they wouldn't let you check-in even a minute before that. Stay away from here unless you have no other option.

Nice location. just opposite bus stop. The housekeeper stayed latenight for us as we arrived at around 12 MN. Room was nice , clean , and with good view of opposite building! Live environment with mostly young people. Kitchen was provided with basic amenities like hot plate, oven, fridge and utensils. Overall, nice experience.

Only three parking spaces for the whole hostel - which of course all were taken. This caused us quite some problems, as parking in Switzerland is very costly and we had planned with these parking spaces. Rooms/Bath rooms were ok for the price.

Expected it to be cleaner. Our room was okay. But it was not well-maintained, the walls are dirty and there's dust underneath the bunk beds. I stayed with my mom and sister and they were not so happy as well. Wifi is only available in the common area as well which is very inconvenient. Communal shower and toilet with very...

I am very impressed with this hostel. They staff were very friendly. Kitchen were stocked with a lot of food. We also can make drinks and do simple cooking without any charges. The toilet and bathroom were very clean. I would recommend this place for other travellers too.
