    Frustrating that there were issues with a child having a different surname to me (their mother). It was explained that this was a Swiss thing - which means Switzerland is still in the Middle Ages for women and their surnames. Limited staffing hours (no one there before 8am was also inconvenient.

    Good room, small but clean. Quiet place next to the center.

    Breakfast buffet wasn’t great: old bread, unripe fruits, small choice.

    Stayed in a twin room with private bathroom. There was even a TV in the room, mostly (only?) Italian channels. Considering it is a hostel, the quality of accommodation and overall service is very good. The food selection at breakfast is limited (only cold, no eggs, etc.) but okay. I heard the coffee was quite good (I don't drink coffee so can't tell). The location is convenient - nice 10-15 minutes walk from the train station through the city center. We used the washing machine and dryer for washin our clothes and it worked just fine (it only accepts 1 and 0,20 CHF coins). Also the lockers at the reception were very convenient - big and for free; you only need a 2 CHF coin as a deposit.

    Since the twin room that I stayed in was in the 5th floor right under the roof, the outside temperature was around 35-37 °C, and there was no AC, it was quite hot in the room even during the night. Also, if you keep your window open during night, the trains are quite loud. But I had no real trouble sleeping.

    The location with the castle in the background and the view from our top floor window. It was also close to the city centre.

    Our room was really warm (probably because it was right under the roof). The ventilation in the bathroom turned right off when we left the bathroom, so the humidity stayed there very long. The shower cabin was poorly designed because it was very hard to keep the water from spraying all over the place. Also the check in time should be extended to a later time, since 20:00 is very early for arriving after a long daytrip at a hostel. However, it's great that we were able to check out in the morning, even though the earliest check out time could be a little earlier than 8 o'clock, since we wanted to leave for another daytrip that day.

    Very friendly staff, fresh room and facilities, beautifully located next to a castle.

    The breakfast was ‘student & budget friendly’, but not something you wish to eat for several days.
