The reception only opens from 7:00-10:00 and 17:00-21:00. When we arrived at 15:00 there was nobody there, only other travelers lying on the couches like corpses. We went back around 18:00 to check in. By then the reception was fully functioning! The gentleman at the reception was very nice and helpful and recommended us the restaurant marketplatz, which was beyond satisfactory. I have to say (swiss) German food agree with me in general. The hostal is very clean and also very simple. We stayed on the floor 2 stories below the reception. Simple bunk bed, with sink and shower in the room, but the bathroom is a floor above. We came by car, but I saw a tram stop right next to the hostal. Simple but fully function establishment for budget travelers especially if you travel in a big group.
