Liked: Free breakfast was simple but good, I liked to common area. The lockers were big and the room also had a small sink. The showers were spacious. The staff was nice. The wifi worked well too, although only in the lobby/reception and not in the rooms. Small bar in the lobby.

Disliked: It's a bit far from the city center, but the tram no 7 goes frequently and also you can take the trolleybus no 33 right in front of the hostel. Also a bit expensive considering the 6 bed dorm was very small and plain, but hey Switzerland is expensive!

Liked: I did not see something interesting with this hostel comparing with other hostels i have stayed in during my leisure trip to europe.

Disliked: With the money i have paid, this hotel did not give me good value. The distance is too far out of the city. The hotel location is not easily reached by the public transport from main train station.

Liked: The place was absolutely spottless, sparkling clean. The showers were perfectly clean and nice and warm. Breakfast had a good selection of cereals, breads, cheeses and preserves, hot and cold drinks. Wifi was easily accessible in the lounge and computers were available to use at a charge.

Disliked: Quite far out from the city center however the trams were very easy to use. I walked into the city along the lake side and found this was a beautiful way to enjoy the scenery. Also, bathrooms are not en suite to the rooms but this didn't really bother me.

Liked: I liked that it was a big hostel and that they had a 24 hour reception.

Disliked: I disliked that the internet was very expensive and limited, for example Skype was not available at all so I couldnt ring home. I also didnt like that you had to pay to lock up your bags in the room, as in most other hostels it is free. Also the Wifi/WLAN only worked in reception and not in the rooms. I also thought the evening meals were very expensive, as they were no cheaper than food that you could get in the city centre, and the communal spaces downstairs lacked atmosphere. There was also young families and school groups which made it feel like a strange dynamic.

10 August 2013 Elise would recommend this property

Liked: The breakfast was fantastic, the highlight for me of this hostel. Though it was a long way from the city centre, the hostel was really close to the lake in Zurich, which was really nice to swim in, and you could take a ferry straight to the city centre.

Disliked: It was very difficult to charge appliances, as the European adapters didn't fit in the wall sockets. We had to borrow a Swiss adaptor from reception. The rooms were also very small, and quite dingy. Considering the money we paid to stay there, I would have expected them to be nicer!
