Richterswil Youth Hostel Reviews

Richterswil Youth Hostel Reviews from the Web

Liked: Very clean, and quite new. Right behind the train station too. Didn't like: I would have stayed here either way, but it would have been nice if they mentioned that the daily membership of 6CHF applies for non-YHA-members in addition to the price shown on hostelbookers.



Regardless of whether you want to stay just one night or several days, you will find a little holiday paradise at the Horn. Water babies can go swimming, rowing, windsurfing and diving virtually outside the door. Bon viveurs can take a cruise on the boats of Lake Zurich. Lovers of art and culture will make their way to Einsiedeln, an important place of pilgrimage with an impressive Benedictine monastery. Globetrotters will value its proximity to the lively metropolis of Zurich, and yet enjoy the opportunity to relax after an exhausting day in the city.
