  • Some of the staff were friendly, others not so much. There is not much space in the hotel to "hang out" other than the room next to reception so it is fairly hard to meet other travellers. The rooms were not aired out so very humid and smelly :(

  • I only stayed for one night, but I really enjoyed this hostel. Each level of rooms have a kitchen and toilet/shower. Located really close to the train station, supermarkets, restaurants and cafes. I spent my last night in Switzerland sitting on the hostel rooftop, listening to buskers in the street below and watching the sun setting :D
