It is not a bad hostel with clean beds, rooms and toilets, however, I felt the whole time that the hostel was trying to make money, it's 5 Francs to use a locker (I think each time you open it.) Breakfast was provided but pretty poor.

The youth hostel is simply amazing with excellent facilities. The rooms are clean and so are the bathrooms and toilets. Breakfast is also good but can get repetitive if you are staying for many days. The hostel is easily accessible and has lot of board games to keep visitors busy. Overall a very nice and lively place to stay in...

Nice hostel to stay and relax only, extremely quiet, if you look for a place to make new friends it's quite hard to find there. The staff are very friendly and helpful, any information you need, they help you. It's easy to get there from the Hauptbanhof, which is very good, well located with some grocery stores nearby. I recommend...

This hostel is very far from the city. takes 30 mins to get there from city. there is no kitchen so you have to buy their food. you have to make your own bed. check out very early at 10am.

One of the nicest hostels I've been in - even better than some hotels. The hostel was super clean, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast great. They served several different coffees, toasts, cereals etc.

This was my second stay at one of the Swiss Youth Hostels (first stay was at the Basel Hostel-see separate review). The Zurich Youth Hostel seemed to be a well organized business. I booked both of my reservation through their corporate offices. This reservation was booked under a fall special rate of 3 nights for 99CHF, which was a great...

Definitely one of the nicer hotels I've been in (and more expensive). Clean, modern, spacious, lots of amenities. The only downside is it's location. The staff are absolutely great--Robin and Jenny in particular were very helpful.

A friend and I stayed there for a night, it is quite far out from the centre of Zurich and it took a 15 minute tram journey to get there. It has nice facilities, toilets and showers were very clean and nice. Our room was okay but the mattress protectors were a bit scratchy and felt like towels. The dinner...

I, along with with my wife and children, stayed at the hostel during 13-16 Aug. 16. Based on my limited exposure of staying in the hi hostels, perhaps this is one of the best, if not the best. The downside - it is too expensive to be hostel. It is well connected both with tram and bus and it takes...

Location is good in terms of environment but you won't find much in the surrounding area. Staffs were helpful. The rooms are fine except the facilities are minimum. There is wifi only in the lobby which is not even very strong everywhere. It is kind of disappointing that you have to replace your bed and pillow cover by yourself when...
