Thanks for the fantastic score and review! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed all the common areas, unfortunately due to Swiss Law we are not able to stay outside after 10pm, it really does suck but we have to abide to the law other wise they will close the terrace restaurant down! :-(

Liked: Kitchen was great, large and well equipt. Hostel was clean and staff very helpful. Great base for so many activites or day trips. Pretty good hostel breakfast. If you want extra cooked items you can pay.

Disliked: Paper thin walls. Unfortunatly the club is under the hostel which makes it hard to get sleep not because of the music but mainly because of the loud guests
