The hostel is located about 10-15 minutes walk from the Zurich Main Train Station which is really strategic. Together with 3 other family members, we booked 2 private twin rooms as they didn't have any of the 4 bed dorm available during our visit. The management allocated us to two rooms which are side by side which was really nice.
However, the rooms were small and the cleanliness level is just passable. Rather disappointing especially that this hostel is in Switzerland and the Swiss hostels are always said to be very clean. The shared showers were quite rundown. The doors couldn't be lock and there is no place to hang your towel or clothes and keys.
Despite being in the centre of town, the hostel was located above a restaurant and the flights of stairs is a nightmare. The reception is on the second floor and you need to drag your luggage all the way up some narrow staircase. Being above a restaurant and located on a street full with bars and restaurants, getting some early rest is quite difficult.
Just average, there are better options if you could afford a little more.
