Welcome to our hostel
Our super funky youth hostel in Basel is a great choice for groups looking for an ultra-modern central base as it is just a few minutes’ walk from the main railway station.
With free Wi-Fi and a free travel card included within the cost of your stay, it also makes this hostel an affordable option. Previous travellers have described it as being more like a hotel than a hostel.
One of Switzerland's underrated tourist destinations, Basel has a beautiful medieval old town centre a carnival that ranks with Rio de Janeiro, and several world class art museums. Add to that the fact the majority of the attractions in this city are accessible by walking, means that groups can cover a lot of ground in a relatively short time.
The city is bike-friendly and groups can also see things from a different perspective by taking a river cruise on the Rhine which divides the city in half. Or hop onto one of the historical trams which buzz around the city.
Don’t miss the Basel Zoo if you are traveling here with family. Or the Puppenhausmuseum, which has the world’s greatest collections of teddy bears and dolls. And don’t miss the opportunity to check out some of the shops which specialise in jewellery, watches, and chocolate.
The friendly staff on the reception of the Hostel Basel are more than happy to help organise activities for your group and there is also the opportunity to order meals at the hostel too.
So whatever your reason for visiting this beautiful Swiss city, the Youth Hostel Basel is waiting to welcome your group.
