21 August 2013

Liked: The bathroom was clean.

Disliked: The girl that works at the front desk wasnt very helpful and friendly. She was not welcoming. I walked in to check in, she didnt greet me and she had this "what do you want?" attitude. When I told her the wifi didnt work, she didnt care and just continue what she was doing and told me that she will close the receptionist desk soon. I did not feel safe in the hostel because it looks like one key works for all rooms, including the front desk. Plus no staffs are around pass 9pm and in the morning. There were also no bedside light, no big lockers in the room and not enough outlets. to charge phone and camera. The area he hostel was located also looks like a redlight district .....

The property's response is...

Liked: The dorm was huge but there was plenty of space and every bed had a light and powerpoint. Common room was average, but did the job.

Disliked: The main problem of is great hostel is the price, I know switzerland is expensive but $40 FR a night? Another downside is the 15 min walk from the station, the directions they gave were a bit confusing. Just use google maps and it is much easier.

Liked: Location wasnt too bad, although it is a walk from the station. The showers and bathrooms were spacious and clean, probably the best I have encountered in Europe. The staff were really helpful and friendly.

Disliked: I didnt get a good vibe from this place..It is a bit difficult to define why but I barely saw any other travellers and I didnt feel very safe here due to having a seedy looking sports bar downstairs. If travelling with other people it might be ok but as a solo traveller I wouldnt come back here, unless maybe in high season when there are other people around. Also the "fee" breakfast included horrible coffee and mouldy cheese. This could be a great hostel if they fixed the breakfast and made the bar area brighter and less seedy.

Liked: nothing actully

Disliked: they forgot our breakfast, we paid for it. as there is no reception for 24 hrs, and it was our check out day, there was no one to fix the problem. so we paid for a service they didn´t give therefore we had to take the train with empty stomach.

Liked: Cerca de la estación de tren, buen desayuno el cual dejan listo desde la noche anterior con tu nombre en una bolsa. Baños muy limpios.

Disliked: No incluye sabanas ni toallas, ni siquiera me las ofrecieron. Como llegue en la noche me toco dormir así. Los baños son compartidos conmucha gente pero son bastante limpios. El wifi sencillamente no funcionaba! Creo que deben mejorar eso urgentemente

Liked: Good location, good breakfast (but you have to pay extra for it), nice showers and toilets

Disliked: No lockers for luggage-only small safes with electronic lock in rooms (good for documents, money or digital camera), no staff after 11 p.m., no tap in dining room - for the water to kettle you have to go on floor up, hostel is located at one of the main streets - in summer, when windows are open, it may be quite noisy
