  • A very clean hostel and friendly staff members. I forgot my slippers and walked around the room and toilet with my bare feet and didn't feel much dirt. Close to the Zurich lake…

    Jugi mit wunderschöner Aussicht

    In der Jugi in Rapperswil-Jona wird man freundlich in Empfang genommen und es wird unkompliziert gleich das Du angeboten. So habe ich mich in einem familiären Umfeld und wohl gefühlt. Ich habe ein 4er Zimmer gebucht und hatte das Privileg alleine zu sein. Auch das Essen schmeckt ausgezeichnet.

  • 6.0.Good

    Das Essen ist ungeniessbar und für diese schlechte Qualität unverschämt teuer. E ist schlicht ein Schweinerei, dass man bei der Buchung auf der Jugendherbergehomepage unbemerkt auf ebookers fällt. Das machte den Aufenthalt viel zu teuer, da der Mitgliederrabatt nicht abgezählt wurde. Bilanz: Nie wieder essen in der Jugi Jona, nie wieder via ebookers reservieren.
