Zürich Hostel

Hostel Zürich

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

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.

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 night's sleep here; comfortable rooms with between two and five beds are available. Check-in is possible at any time, rooms are ready from 3 pm.

Are you about to continue your European tour or do you want to discover more of Zurich "Downtown Switzerland"? In 20 minutes you can be at the main railway station or the city centre. 10 minutes on foot take you to the banks 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, don't miss the breakfast buffet. From six until half past nine in the morning, you'll find everything that belongs to a real Swiss breakfast!

In autumn 2007, the Zurich Youth Hostel had a special distinction bestowed on it by ICOMOS (International Council on Monuments and Sites) in the context of “Historic Hotel of the year 2008” award “for a sensitive and successful conversion of a 1960s building”.

Though I had asked several times the location and the mode of transport to reach the hostel,I was not conveyed it clearly though emails.. Moreover the staff at the reception didnt convey it clearly to me that bus station from whee day trips take place is almost 10 minutes away from main station and because of that o had to spend 30 francs on taxi. This is just NOT ACCAPTABLE. People staying I youth hostels are obviously not rich and carelessness on the part of staff can prove very costly in various ways.

Very efficient staff, however if we had been staying longer than 12 hours ( we needed a YH near the airport ) we would have requested to be moved. We were placed in a room for a disabled person which with kids was not ideal and felt we had been tucked out of the way. A shame as we had experienced really good YH the days before. Not really near Zurich main town either, quite a long way out actually so that was not in the listing for the hostel, not central to Zurich
