Liked: Nothing

Disliked: The location, Its surrounded by strip clubs and brothels, the room had no curtains so it was hard to sleep. There was only one toilet and one shower in the same room per floor. and last but not least it was noisy 3am there was still music pumping down stairs.

Disliked: I had to sleep on an awful top bunk which didnt even feel clean to me. I had a hell of a time finding the place. The girl who checked me in was super rude.

Liked: The staff was all really friendly and helpful and gave great recommendations on affordable and authentic restaurants as well as sights to see. The location was great, surrounded by nightlife and within a reasonable walking distance to the lake, historic part of Zurich, and train station. Also the wifi worked really well and the shower was warm.

Disliked: The bathrooms were a little dirty but that was to be expected when sharing it between 12 people.

Liked: Pretty close to the station. Not too expensive for Zurich. Bar downstairs with a free drink every night, Rooms are fine, lots of powerpoints, beds are fine too. Breakfast included.

Disliked: Music from bar a tad loud for trying to sleep. Can hear everything on the streets at night. Staff friendly enough but kinda seemed like they were high all the time... No 24 hour check in and out.

Liked: I was very happy with the amount of the size of the locker each person got. The lockers also contained plugs so you could lock up your stuff and charge things at the same time. The hostel was also located right in the middle of all the bars and clubs.

Disliked: The shower was not working properly.

Liked: To be honest, there aren't many choices when it comes to hostels in Zurich as its expense factor tends to mean there aren't so many backpackers in the region. However, the staff were helpful, with the bar area adding a nice aspect to the hostel with a free drink each night.

Disliked: I had a distinct lack of access to powerpoints. While there are powerpoints in the lockers - mine didn't work so would have to charge from the little common room area near the door. The room itself was quite cramped once you had bags in there and the sheets are a little dodge - you're meant to sleep in this sheet-like sleeping bag, as opposed to using actual sheets. The shower and toilet were also in the same room, meaning if one person was in the shower - the toilet couldn't be used. You could go to other levels but risk running into the same issue. This was between 12 people.

Liked: Brilliant hostel - I really enjoyed my stay here and would not stay anywhere else if i came back to Zurich. The breakfast supplied is simple but good - with the coffee coming straight from the coffee machine (not instant/filtered). The rooms are clean and comfortable. the wifi is strong and works in both the bar and the rooms. the bar is sweet - on the weekends it was packed with locals enjoying the shows the hostel puts on. One free drink everynight is also a bonus. the location is superb - 10 minutes walk from the train station in one of the best "hip" areas for bars/clubs whilst only being a 10/15 minute walk from the old town. supermarket is right over the road too. and probably the best thing - big lockers with a power point INSIDE the locker. just brilliant.

Disliked: the bunk beds, although comfortable are quite noisy. Every time the guy on the top bunk moved/got off the bed/got on the bed I knew about it. A very small complaint in the scheme of things though!

Liked: Awesome bar atmosphere and liked the free daily drink offer for all guests. They put on a good breakfast too.

Disliked: Staff were fairly unhelpful and couldn't help us at all when we asked about tours etc which is most unusual for hostels. The room was really unclean with dust everywhere and it smelt terribly. My bed was infested with bed bugs so I left with a bunch of red bites all over me too. The atmosphere downstairs was only good on weekends when locals attended. Almost every other guest was over about 40yrs old which was very strange and made it quite uncomfortable. Bathroom was always a complete mess with hair everywhere all the time which made showering a horrible experience. The lack of hot water didnt help either. All this plus it was incredibly over priced. Won't be returning.

Liked: The staff was very helpful and the room was clean. The whole place seems to trust its visitors - e.g. towels are free to take, cosy cmall carpets in bathroom, there was a toothpaste in the bathroom for those that had forgotten to bring one etc - so those small things made the stay very pleasant. In addition - the hostel offers a free drink in the evening :)

Disliked: Karin left no negative feedback.

Liked: Free b/fast & free drink at the Bar after 8.00 pm and 15 mins walk from Zurich Main train stn

Disliked: Located in a red light district and drug addicts area with funny characters loitering around. On Friday & Saturday night, the band at the bar on the ground floor played loud music till 2.00 am and people shouting and talking loudly around the street at 4.00 am after having too many drinks from nearby bars. Street littered with empty beer bottles the next day. One toilet cum shower area shared with 12 people on the 3rd floor and door faulty and cannot be closed properly & locked and can be quite embrassing to a female having a shower if someone accidentally pushed open the door. Management should get the door repaired. No toilet paper for 2 full days until a complaint was lodged on the 3rd day to the staff that the toliet paper was replenished. All in all, the street may not be conducive for a female walking alone in the late late night but police presence is there.
