Stayed in a private 2bd room so it seemed more like a regular hotel (compared to dorm room hostel) with shared bathroom facilities. It was clean and although it's called Youth Hostel, there were older people and families as well (I imagine because Switzerland is expensive this is a good way to save a few bucks). Stayed on a weekend and the noise levels were totally fine. Parking was super easy and cheap. The bus straight in to town is only about a 5 minute walk away and they give you a free bus pass as well.

Avoid if you value sleep
Dreadful place. Bare walls and floors, the absence of soft furnishings etc meant that it was noisy above my room, in the corridor and next door up to midnight and from 6am next day. Rooms are like clean and tidy cells with not one spare socket or seat other than a tiny stool. Staff were very helpful - not their fault that the place is not fit to be on a hotel website. Vastly overpriced for what's on offer. Like been in a playground.

Easily accessible by bus and clean. Smaller rooms. Shared washrooms with others (2 per floor) made for busier mornings.

My first time at Youth, for sure this is for young student or very active people, staff are good, and same as public area. bathroom are clean. But room itself is not for family, this build right face to a road with a lot of traffic, we arrived at at day with 32C, which we could not close window, noise all night. if you want something basic with nice price, this one maybe your choice, otherwise go somewhere else.
