Hostel Basel

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

This hostel is a masterpiece. The architects who created it, Buchner & Bründler, are pioneers of innovative and modern architecture. New features are combined with classic elements at Basel Youth hostel. Together with its construction, these architects were also responsible for the Swiss Pavilion at the World Expo in Shanghai, making them experts in the field of global design.

This hostel welcomes guests from all over the world. The new building was reopened with 234 beds in different room categories (from double room to a room for 6 people). The entrance lobby has an impressive, and stylishly open plan finish owing to the transparent walls of the reception area, lounge and dining room. The combination of old and new features can be seen from the outside and experienced inside; - everything is based on high structural and artistic standards. The rooms are now smaller and cosier, but still leaving ample space for guests’ comfort.
