Stayed one night with family of 4. Clean room, spacious. Not very modern but sufficient. Wifi signal was not very good at our room. Very close to Basel SBB. They double booked our parking lot but had a proper solution right away.

Stayed one night - very close to SBB station, clean and friendly. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Breakfast reasonable. Sheets and bedding clean. had kitchen stuff but no soap or shampoo should say that in description so we can bring our own. no oven dishes to bake. Wifi did not work in our suite.

I succeeded to book a bed at 22 CHF (66/3 nights)!!! It was difficult to believe, for this country, and expecially considering the superior quality of this hostel. It is close to the swiss train station. Large kitchen and fridges and everything to cook. Wifi included. Lots of place, 2 large TVs. I was lucky to be offered a free excellent meal by a group of youngs christians that had a BBQ party at the place cause the YMCA had let them use some meeting rooms.
If you book in advance you can get very good prices.

Room Tip: Book in advance

Clean rooms and nice breakfast! The conditioned air was not so easy to handle. The personal was friendly. Is very close to the main train station SBB and relative faraway from the city center. Internet was low-speed.

It's a really nice place in the center of Basel, very close to the main train station. Staff are really nice. Outside area very nice to enjoy. All in all very nice place.
The hotel provides a free public transportation pass that can allow you to use any kind of public transportation in the city of Basel, as well as the public transportation map and the city map.
