Liked: Well maintained and excellent facilities including a bar. Bathrooms and showers clean and functional. Good included breakfast.

Disliked: Difficult to find using sbahn and quite a stressful walk from station. Public transport tickets are difficult to purchase when arriving at rail station and ticket offices are closed and there is no information booth. Location of hostel is main problem.

Liked: Clean, comfortable beds and plenty of hot water. Some showers had push button timers on others didnt and also some had longer times on them. Loved the idea of an entrance area where the lockers and sink is and then another door to the sleeping area. it means you can pack if you are leaving early or unpack if you are arriving late without disturbing your room mates. Each bed had a light and plug

Disliked: Wi fi. Im not actually against not having wifi in your rooms as it actually makes you talk to your fellow room mates. ive been some places where you wouldnt know they exist, sat behind their curtains. However the wifi in the main area kept dropping out. It was new years eve so it may have had something to do with the volume of traffic. the location is about 20mins from the city so if you are someone that likes to pop back all the time this would be an issue. on the otherhand being out of the centre of town it is quiet, you get a good nights sleep and you are actually where the locals are

Liked: "Excellent Hostel...!" I was on my bicycle so this location was very accessible to the City Centre (about 5-8 min), the Zurichsee (less than 5 min), and high Alpine meadows (about 1 1/2 hrs by bicycle). I showed up a day after my original reservation and ended up staying for an extra two nights and they were very accomodating. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a pretty good place to lock up a bicycle in a storage facility underground. They also have a decent laundry facility as I was in need of doing laundry after a four day bicycle trek to get there. Breakfast was also very good. A bit on the expensive side but other than that, I give this place an A++

Disliked: Nothing notable...

Liked: It's just awesome! So clean, staff were more than helpful and it's located a good distance from the central city! Also that it offers lockers, most hostels don't and it really helps to ease your mind when you're travelling!

Liked: This is a very clean and comfortable hostel. Free wi-fi in the lobby. Breakfast included.

Disliked: This hostel is in a horrible location. It is about 20 mins from the city centre - meaning you'll be spending time and money on public transport. The part of town it is located in is largely residential, with few restaurants nearby (especially for those on a budget) but there is a good supermarket a short walk away (although it shuts quite early at 8pm). The showers are on a ridiculous 30 second timer making for a really frustrating shower experience!
