  • 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

  • Overall great Hostel! Heard from other guests though that they would have liked to have known that there were several flights of stairs to climb to get to reception/your room, so I would suggest mentioning that in booking details/your website.

  • The Hostel was extremely clean and well kept. We booked a trip to Mt. Titlus with the front desk as well and they were very helpful. We really enjoyed our time in Zurich and Hotel Biber was a great place to stay at. Their rooftop is great too!
