Oldtown Hostel Otter Reviews


New hostel at the party mile of Zurich with free breakfast and concerts in the hostel-bar.

We offer 52 beds at the famous Langstrasse. The hostel has seven dorms and a popular cafe-bar on the ground-floor for a moderate price.

The Langstrasse is famous for the variety of people, the trendy night-life with concerts and culture. Last but not least it used to be the cheapest district of Zurich, but it's becoming more expensive... There is still prostitution and drug-dealing in this area, but for travellers it's safe - even at night!

Don't expect any luxury for this price: be aware that you book the cheapest bed in central Zurich! Toilets and showers are shared with 12 people, so expect that you have to wait at rush hours! If you are used to stay in cheap dorms, you will appreciate the very cool atmosphere of the place with concerts on weekends and the possibility to have a great night at the bar and meet many people.

After 10pm is quite-time in the dorms (still noisy on weekends because of the people on the street), for this checked-in guests get a free beer or soft drink at the hostel bar which offers an interesting view of the Langstrasse with its diversity of people.
