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!

Liked: Very big common room. Although the place a little far from the center, but easy to access by bus & tram. Room are good and clean, bathroom is simple but enough for an hostel. Not a problem for backpackers Breakfast included already Cheapest one in Zurich at the moment I booked

Disliked: With their "youth hostel associations" name all around, I expected they to be more hostel like. But it's not for me. First, they don't even have microwave (i don't ask for kitchen, just a simple microwave for heating). Zurich is a damn expensive city, so i hope i can at least reduce my budget by buying from supermarket. They also sells coffee, tea, and some dinner but with a city center price. The only free thing is hot water Second, this is not a big problem for me. But what's the point of using coin locker inside my own room? I can get the coin back and it's already in (at least) the private area with a keys so that's weird. From my point of view it's like I need to pay for everything when staying there. I'm not blaming the staff there, you are great! seems like it's more managerial and policy things

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!
