Hostel Zürich is in a quiet, residential area near Lake Zurich and 15 minutes by tram to the city centre, with its charming old streets and wealth of museums. The ‘Rote Fabrik’ cultural centre in Wollishofen, offering avant-garde concerts, theatre and discos, is within walking distance.

In the hostel you will find comfortable rooms with between two and five beds, a spacious inner courtyard where travellers can meet and share experiences, a big-screen TV where you can pick up the latest international news headlines and a pool table to challenge your new friends to a game or two. Before rushing out in the morning don’t miss the breakfast buffet, where you'll find everything that belongs in a real Swiss breakfast!

Explore the city using the trams and buses with a day travel card, or get some fresh air and exercise and rent a bike instead.

Gut geführte Jugendherberge, leider fehlt die Nasszelle im Zimmer. Das finde ich, sollte bei renovierten Jugenerbergen standard weden.
