The Zurich Youth Hostel became one of the most modern of the world- open round the clock, so you can really get to know Zurich, the little city on a global scale.

The hostel has a roomy entrance hall and a spacious inner courtyard for the international globe-trotting community to meet good cuisine, comfortable rooms in a quiet city location close to the lake.

Zurich Youth Hostel where people meet.
Chat about your last Asian or American trip in the big entrance hall, exchange information and trips on the leisure activities on offer in Zurich, pick up the latest international news headlines on the big-screen TV while eating a snack or play a game of billiards - all of this at any time, around the clock, 365 days a year.

Of course, you can also get a good nights sleep here; comfortable rooms with between two and five beds are available. Are you about to continue your European tour or do you want to discover more of Zurich Downtown Switzerland?

In 20 minutes you are at the main railway station or the city centre. 10 minutes on foot take you to the shores of Lake Zurich. A little bit further and you come to the new Rote Fabrik (Red Factory) cultural centre. The green, unpopulated part of Zurich is only a five minutes walk away.

Before rushing out in every direction in the morning, dont miss the breakfast buffet. From six until half past nine in the morning, youll find everything that belongs to a real Swiss breakfast!

While most party-hard backpackers in Europe stick to the big cities like Paris, London and Barcelona, you might end up cutting your nights (or even your trip) short. These cities come at a cost and just one cocktail can run upwards of $15. Luckily there are so many other beautiful cities around Europe which offer an exciting nightlife at half or even a third of the cost.
