Welcome to our hostel

The youth hostel in Basel is a great choice for groups looking for a modern and central base as it is just a few minutes’ walk from the main railway station. Basel has a beautiful medieval old town and several world class art museums. 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.
With free Wi-Fi and a free travel card included within the cost of your stay, it also makes this hostel an affordable option.
A buffet breakfast is offered every morning. Dinner and packed lunches are as well available on request.
