The hostel is in a quite bylane but short distance from bus stop which takes you to the station. Once there the place has small lovely restaurants, cafes. The manager is a lovely lady and she makes you feel at home. The breakfast is yummy and had the best scrambled eggs here.

Probably the cheapest place to stay in a town where everything is expensive. Compared to any other city this hostel would be extortionate, but for Switzerland it's value for money. Rooms were basic - I stayed in a twin with bunk beds and a sink - it would have been nice to have the option of a double bed at...
