Amazing stay
Was an amazing visit
Monika, gb2 night trip
Youth Hostel Basel
Exceptional Value in an Expensive City
I use hostels quite regularly for football related travel to keep costs down. This hostel excelled. Excellent facilities, clean and modern, great breakfast included, ten minute walk to main centre. Certainly not the cheapest around Europe but exceptional value compared to local hotels.
