    Clean but rather expensive for what it is.

    Clean with a reasonable infrastructure. Expensive for what it is, modern hotel concepts have a better price / offering relation than the Youth Hostel Zurich. The youth hostel includes breakfast but given current times there was no buffet, the offered breakfast was not that great, in particular the bread. Under normal circumstances (no corona) a good place to meet people.

    אחלה אכסניית נוער

    צריך להתייחס למקום כאכסניית נוער ואז מקבלים פרופורציה נכונה לצערי בגלל המחיר וההמלצות חשבתי על מלון... מכאן האכזבה סהכ חדר בסיסי ללא תוספות, נקי, מיטה לא נוחה בעזיבה צריך לאסוף את המצעים והמגבת לסל בלובי המלון לא נותן כרטיסי נסיעה בתחבורה הציבורית בחינם כמו כל המלונות האחרים שהיינו בהם בשוויץ מכאן שהעלות בפועל הייתה יותר גבוה וחבל

    Needs a bit more improvement

    Breakfast was a great addition to the hostel. Stayed in four room dorm and the showers and bathroom are outside the rooms. Downside is that lockers have to use coins to utilize in room which seems to defeat the purpose of having lockers in room. Also the location is inconvenient for walking and makes it difficult to travel

    The design of the rooms is great to let people sleep quietly, there is a door separating the lockers from the beds

    I Wasn’t too impressed with this place. Way far from the center especially if you are walking. The whole time I was there I felt like I was in a juvenile detention center. Not worth the money as it is kind of on the expensive side for a hostel!
