The bar downstairs was nice and I loved the people working there. They were super nice. They even give you a free drink for each night that you stay with them. Please take note that this hostel is located in the Red Light District of Zurich. I had no idea until I arrived and felt a little uncomfortable with my surroundings. It is nice during the day but it kind of gets to be a little unsafe for a woman to be walking home alone at night.
Stay here if you dont want any sleep and a cold shower for 43 CHF
The service is moderately friendly and the wifi is excellent. However, if you are here to sleep and not party you should stay elsewhere as the hostel becomes a nightclub on the ground floor at night. You won't get any sleep until 03:00 when the club closes. You will greeted in the morning by chatty roommates and cold showers at 07:00. don't bother asking for a partial refund from their indifferent manager, Lukas, who simply grunts, "it's a hostel."
Good for short term stay
I've seen better quality in Zurich, but overall it was acceptable. The staff is friendly, and the breakfast was decent. The price is high compared to the rest of Switzerland, but that is true for Zurich overall.
Very nice and inviting
Just stayed overnight, but felt very welcome. It was clean and comfortable would recommend it to friends.
