Liked: Nothing

Disliked: It was the first time in the last 5 months travelling in Europe we are intimidated and threatened in this hostel. It could never imagine this in Switzerland. I arrived in this hostel with two little kids on a freezing cold day at night after travelling long distance (AUSTRALIA). We waited outside for long just to get in. We were told that there are two kittles in the kitchen for use. We just wanted to have tea but there were no cups. Coffee machine was not working so there is no provision for any hot drinks, which is ok. So my wife came down and humbly requested for two cups. There were about ten or twenty cups on top of the coffee machine, but the lady declined to give it to us. There was another gentleman who was present who also experience and requested her, but she was extremely adamant. Never mind.Next morning, I JUST wanted to have morning tea as it was raining and we were a bit sick. I stood outside the kitchen for 30 minutes after 8am, it was locked. The lady turned up at 8.30am, she waited me for 15 minutes. I requested her to open the kitchen and offered to open the door myself, but she simply ignored me. I requested her again after waiting long and she reply "she will open the kitchen when it is ready". Now, I am a Professor of Tourism and experiencing such a rude behaviour in Switzerland is just not acceptable. She said that "Now the kitchen will not open the whole day" and get out. I reacted and said that I would like to talk to the manager or owner. She said "go away and do whatever you want to do". I told her that I will contact the Swiss Authority and report it for discrimination and ill-treatment of tourists. She was simply rude and arrogant. I couldn't believe it. She then close the kitchen permanently. It is all JUST for the HOT water. This is the story. We left Switzerland, that country and people that we admire for hospitality.

Liked: The wifi was good. The beds were comfortable enough. It was clean. The shower was good.

Disliked: The staff were not nice or helpful. The "kitchenette" was only open for a few hours. The reception was only open for a few hours. The common area was small and hard to sit in. The window would not lock so it was slamming all through the night.

Liked: Die Leute sind sehr warmherzig und extrem hilfsbereit. Es ist schlicht, einfach aber für diesen super Preis kann man auch nicht ein Erst Klassen Haus verlangen.

Disliked: Man könnte das eine oder andere mal renovieren, was aber auch wieder den Charme des Hauses ausmacht.
