The stay was average. Mattresses were so soft and there isn't a fan. It was summer and we were practically sweating staying indoor! Shower area was in the bathtub and it was difficult to set the right temperature on the shower somehow. Wifi was also weak as our room was on another block and on the 2nd floor. Wifi was much stronger towards the reception area which is on the main block.
On the positive note, the family room is spacious. It comes with a room with 2 single beds and the double bed is at the living hall. Kitchen is decent which allowed us to cook. Utensils and a refrigerator are made available. Towels are also provided.
As for location, it is about 10 minutes walk from the main train station. Upon staying with ymca, a pass for free tram transportation is given too! As for pricing, it was pretty much one of the more affordable places to stay in Basel and can accommodate 4 of us.
An ideal choice for someone who is looking for an affordable place to stay in Basel and its location did play a part in my decision to stay here.
