Welcome to our hostel

This huge modern building has been described as one of the most important examples of 1960s architecture (Brutalism) in Switzerland and has been included in the City of Zurich’s list of protected buildings since 1998.

It is one of the only hostels in the country to be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and has become a popular destination for groups looking to explore this vibrant city.

In just 20 minutes you can be at the main railway station or the city centre, where you can discover the major attractions including Gothic churches and museums. Or if you prefer walking in just 10 minutes you will be on the banks of Lake Zurich – with its stunning promenade - where you can catch a number of cruise boats for a great day out.

Travel a little further afield from the hostel and groups will find the new ‘Rote Fabrik’ (Red Factory) cultural centre. And if you are missing the countryside this is never far away with the green, unpopulated part of Zurich only a five minutes' walk away, great for the sporty or just taking some time out for your activities.

Before rushing out in the morning, don't miss the fabulous breakfast buffet which is included in the price. From six until half past nine in the morning, you'll find everything that belongs to a real Swiss breakfast!

So whether you are a group looking to find culture in Zurich or you are here to experience some of the great shopping our hostel will make a great base for your trip of discovery.
