Liked: It was OK. Room was Nice, and you had a free drink every night :)

Disliked: Expensive (but it's Zurich). Didn't really feel like a hostel, but maybe better when more crowded?

Liked: It has a wonderful breakfast: fresh yogurt, espresso made to order, a variety of cereals and breads. Great way to start off the day. Though the location is not top notch, there's a great security system and you can rest safely at night time.

Disliked: It's actually quite far from everything worth visiting. About 15 min to HB and 20 mins to the main sightseeing on Bahnhofstrasse. In the smack middle of winter, this distance is actually very difficult to walk with your luggage. However, there's a great transit system so take advantage of it! The staff could be a little more helpful. When I arrived, I was told to look at a map and find information I need. I know I can do that, but it always helps to have the local staff's take on what's good for eating or seeing! There could also be more toilets: there is one toilet/shower per 12 beds. You can also find more at the bar, but it's hard to make your way downstairs in the cold!

Liked: The location is quite good if you are a party goer. Otherwise be prepares for relentless partying on Langstrasse up to 5 am. The staff is really friendly and they speak many languages fluently.

Disliked: The rooms were so small and somewhat stinky (12 people in a room with one small window.

Liked: It was pretty close to the train station and most things within walking distance.

Disliked: It is located over a bar so you don't have as easy access to the staff. On the 4th floor the kitchen, common area and beds were all in the same room, which was a bit inconvenient.

Liked: Hostel was clean, accommodating, with a great breakfast and helpful staff.

Disliked: It should be noted that hostel is located in Zurich's old Red Light district and neighbors plenty of sex shops, strip joints, etc. This may be something worth considering, especially if you are a young female traveler arriving alone in the late evening.

Liked: They encourage travellers to socialise- there's a bar downstairs with happy hour, and you also get a free drink each day. There's also a small lounge area to socialise in. It's only 15 min walk from old town, but there are definitely hostels with better location. Rooms felt very secure. Most staff were friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Only one bathroom on each level. Very Limited kitchen supplies. Hostel itself is quiet, but street noise is really loud (Friday/Saturday nights). You get a sleep bag thing instead of an actual sheet- felt very restricted so didn't use it. Room was fairly hot.

Liked: One of the cheapest hostels in Zurich. Good value for money.

Disliked: It's quite far from the city centre and the district where it's located is not so safe as the rest of the city... Lots of roise during the night because the hostel is also a pub (the reception in in the bar).
