          Except the nightlife of the next room that we would prefer not to share it was fine.

          1. Perfect location: Near Rhein and close to most of the museums. 2. The price is perfect since it includes breakfast and also the city ticket (which is normally 8.5 CHF/day). 3. Well designed and extremely clean. This is perhaps the cleanest and spacious hostel (in Europe) that I have ever stayed.

          Very practical

          The room has no windows and for fresh air you need to open the door to a balcony that serves several other rooms

          We loved the location near the Rhine and close to the old city. Also liked the modern style and views from the window.

        • Single
          9.6

          Compared to all the other hostels that I've been, this was the best, and it's really close to the river which is the best place in the city IMO

          They didnt have free towels, but you could rent one

        • Couple

          Nicest hostel I've ever stayed in. Very trendy. The place seemed spotless even for a hostel, bathroom & room clean, nice bed linens. Good common areas. The area was absolutely lovely & the building was also really cool along a little river. Breakfast included. Travel card on Basel public transport a bonus especially handy since it gets you to the airport as well.

          I am not one for hostels but Basel was very busy when we were there so could only find/afford sharing a 4 room dorm, thus comes with it obvious irritabilities of sharing rooms and bathrooms with strangers and for that I feel it was quite pricey for what you get..but this is a common feeling in Switzerland..

        • Couple

          Stayed at the modern part of the hostel in a double room with its own bathroom. We certainly appreciated the modern (slightly minimalist) design of the hostel and our room, the large windows permitting natural light and direct access to a large, shared balcony. The location is quite unique in a rather tranquil and historic part of Basel, yet a short walk away from central parts of the town.

          You will need to be aware that the youth hostel - even in the pricy double room - offers modern and cool yet minimalist rooms and service. If you're ok with this, there is really nothing bad to say about this place. Personally, I'm just about on the verge whether the modernist design and unique location justified the premium pricing. Also keep in mind that the reception will surprise you with a 30 CHF annual youth hostel membership fee at check-in if you've never stayed at one of these before!

          A lovely hostel! First off the staff was very friendly and helpful!. The room and facilities were very clean and everything well organized. the breakfast was also great. The general atmosphere was very relaxed and the location also contributed the that- being on the channel and near the Rhine. I was very impressed and had a lovely stay!.

        • Family with children

          Very friendly staff. Very clean as a hostel, normal requirement can be met although no TV, no telephone, but if you just need a bed and shower room, it is perfect!

          Surprised to know we have to bring the linen including bed sheet, pillow case when we check out. But anyway as a hostel we can understand.
