Liked: Good location

Disliked: I had a problem with my online booking and the reception staff were not helpful with either recognizing or trying to help resolve this problem and now I am being charged for an extra night, which could have been avoided, if the problem had been addressed when I was checking in.

Liked: The property was clean and the facilities were in good condition.

Disliked: The place was sterile and lacked atmosphere. What atmosphere did exist was destroyed by the amount of families with toddlers and prams staying there.The staff weren't welcoming and didn't look up to greet you, and a pamphlet replaces a welcome and introduction to the hostel.WiFi is only available in the reception, not in the rooms.The prices were quite high,but not outrageous for Switzerland when a festival was on, but I do resent having to pay 3CHF for a cup of hot water to make tea.
