Very Good8.0
Decent enough place to stay
Check in was good. The dorm was ok, was a room with a bunk bed and one single bed, but would have liked a double. Showers were ok. Kitchen was nice as was the social area. Good wi-fi. The main downside was it was very noisy from 5 am which woke us up. Close to main railway station.

Consistently good hostel.
This is the second time I've stayed at this hostel and its nice to know my last good experience wasn't a one off. Again the staff were very friendly and helpful, the common area chilled and the kitchen well equipped. The cleanliness of the room and bathrooms couldn't be faulted and the breakfast is good value for money. If back in Basel I'll use this place again.

Great hostel
The staff were lovely and friendly even though I only arrivedate and night and left early in the morning I enjoyed my stay. After 10hrs of travelling the common area is a very chilled place to unwind. Will definitely be staying there again. Good value for breakfast as well.

Better than average!
The stay was good. This is better than average hostel, the service is good, clean hostel, everything prepared for the coming. The common room area is very welcoming with the atmosphere and appearance. The WiFi is good, better than average, and the price for the service is fantastic.

So so
The hostel itself is a bit dated. The rooms are not ensuite which is a bit annoying especially in the middle of the night as you need to remember your key card for the room to get back in. The room layout was a bit strange also. My bed was on one side of the room but my cupboard was on the other side so it was not very convienet. There are also not many plug sockets, just a lot of extension cables which are very dangerous if they are over loaded. Also, if you are on the top bunk it is difficult to charge as all the cables are near the floor. The staff were very nice and helpful. The hostel is only a short walk from the train station and about a 15 minute walk I to the town centre. The area is quiet but there is some local schools nearby so children can be heard running about screaming very early in the morning.
