Score from 150 reviews Excellent
walking distance from train station, very clean, very helpful and kind staff, comfortable beds, nice kitchen area, WiFi throughout hostel
far from restaurants or attractions, top bunk is too high, noisy in the morning, no air conditioning in rooms, towels and toiletries not provided, locker locks not provided
One of the staff was very rude
This hostel is very clean, has a excellent staff that is very accommodating to their clients, and very helpful to their clients. The staff is so friendly, and helped us with directions that we needed. Love this place and already recommended to a few friends. A plus!!!!!!!!
Location - a few minutes walk to Winterthur station; so also an option for visits to Zurich, using daily travel tickets. Helpful staff moved me (and my things, in my absence) due to incompatibility with room-mates (coming in late, messy, from a music event...) Unrestricted use of the kitchen for drinks, self-catering etc.
Weak wifi signal in places. Lack of ventilation in the room. (Maybe something for the room-mates..!)
Location is terrific - really close to the central train station, a cafe infront of the hostel, supermarkets nearby. The hostel has wifi which was good (and there were 2 PCs in the reception if you need internet). The workers in the reception were very plesent. Facility was clean, and although it's a hostel I really liked the design of the place - old brick building with nice modern interior design. The rooms have big lockers for your belongings. The hostel has a big kitchen where you can bring products and cook for yourself.
We took the 4 beds room, it's a bit narrow.. but, for sleep and for that price it's no biggie.
Great family room. Very friendly and helpful staff.
It is a Very good place to stay over. I realy enjoy it.
Affordable cost, good location
Some Wifi connection issue, only one parking space
Just about everything, except the in-house pub restaurant (see dislikes)
After long day, were delighted to see there was in-house "Aussie" restaurant. Unfortunately, choice was limited (emu, buffalo, etc) and food itself was tasteless. And very expensive. Maybe that's why we were the only people eating in very large restaurant
Nice kitchen, comfortable and clean bed, friendly staffs.
The location is not convenient if you only want to take a city tour in Zurich as it took time and money to travel to this small town. The room is very noisy at night time as it's next to a pub or bar, the loud music was kept playing until 12 at night.
Very neat and friendly staff
Just down the street from the train station which is great, (though it is seemingly expensive travelling to Zurich - 24 francs return). It also made it easy getting to and from the airport. Winterthur is a nice and a peaceful town so it s very quiet a night. The hostel wasn't busy so it was very relaxed in there. The facilities were great (including the lockers), the kitchen/dining room was also really good. The receptionist spoke great English and plug adaptors were readily available. A great place to stay.
Maybe a bit expensive seeing it is located in a quiet town quite far from Zurich, but Switzerland is generally a very expensive place, more expensive than London which is where I live. And the walls are grey which gives it an eerie feel.
We went over to watch the football and were really well looked after.
Very good value for money and only a 10 minute walk from the town centre. very clean and good shared facilities.
Late check-in and early check-out by default. No parking on hotel premises. Lots of public parking facilities available nearby but it takes effort to sort out how to pay for a day without going bankrupt. You're not allowed to eat in the room. Room had lots of wooden rails under the ceiling and the ceiling itself wasn't straight but rather following the descending roof above the room. Unless you're a gnome, you have a real chance of hitting your head against one of these obstacles more than once. Overall I assume this is a decent place to stay if you're a tiny hipster riding a bike who's looking for a shared bedroom but if you're looking for a private room and hotel-style service standard, this is not for you.
Very modern and clean, close to shops and restaurants, very friendly and helpful staff
Near the train station. It is very convenient.
Staff are warm. Everything is new and comfortable. An elevator is helpful for carrying heavy luggage. Kitchen is clear and well-equipped.
Not far from station but not easy to find
Awsome old place done up nice, comfortable and very affordable. Kids enjoyed aswell.
Everything! It's one of the best hostel I've stayed! Rooms, Kitchen, location, they are perfect!
The place is pretty cool. Everything is new and great huge kitchen with a lot of cookers is available to everyone.the place is clean and quiet.
It's 20 minutes away from Zurich. After coming out from the train station, it's 10 minute walk distance to the hotel. And the 10-min walk is kinda scary cuz there's very few people around and the road is dark at night
- well made bathroom - cleaness - -it is close to Zurich by train 30min. - good wifi
- littel bit far from station and city center(15min. walking)
We chose this hotel based on its location as we had to take an early morning flight from ZRH airport (first train to the airport leaves at 4:44 arrives 5:01). Location 5-10 minute walk from Winterthur train station. Old warehouse turned into hostel. Very clean and modern. Alternative vibe. Spacious double room (w private bathroom). Can't beat the price of CHF 129.--. Traditional shared rooms are much cheaper. Staff were friendly and helpful. Restaurant/bar downstairs. Ideal hostel for those traveling early or wanting to explore the region without paying much. Excellent price/quality ratio. Will return.
Given I'm a light sleeper, sound isolation inside the building wasn't optimal...but it's no big deal.
Stunning, modern room in a neighbourhood with amazing character - an old industrial area
Arriving later in the evening limits your choices of places to eat
I loved the hostel and the staff. Recommended!
