    Definitely one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! Extremely friendly and helpful staff, the place (even the shared toilet and bathroom) is spotless clean, great location - only 5 minutes walk straight from the back exit of the train station SBB, and 10-15 minutes walk to the city center. Buffet breakfast costs only CHF 5 and is totally worth it. Basel is a wonderful city to explore. Thanks to YMCA, my experience in Basel was a positive one.

    Nothing, I'm very happy with this hostel :)

    Great location, just behind the main train station. Rooms are very clean. Very good value for money. In addition, the hostel offers free mobility card for unlimited travel within basel city.

    spacious dining hall

    luggage storage in dorm is a little small, and the two lights in dorm cannot be used seperarely. for guest who wants to change to another bed, it could be time consuming .

    Staff was extremely professional, good breakfast, quiet place, close to train station.

    Nothing other than travellers who shouldnt be travelling. If u must hv a clock that goes tick tock all night then u shouldnt travel. If u cant stay in yr own bed then u shouldnt travel, if your snoring is a nuisance to others than either go to a dr and get it fixed or dont travel. But these issues are in no way the fault of this great hostile.

    Design of the room; very convenient for young people; public transport ticket is included in the room rate

    The currency exchange rate is fixed by ymca instead of the real market rate ( Booked.net); parking is limited

    Very nice hostel. We booked a double room with private bathroom, and it felt like a hotel. In fact, much better than many other hotels we stayed in before. Very confortable room and great design. Internet worked perfectly. Had everything we needed and was close to Basel train station. They even gave us a free transport pass that allowed us to travel on public transports around Basel and to the airport. We really loved this hostel and would definetly return!

    I thought it was fantastic and I would stay again. The location close to the main (SBB) station was ideal, the staff were cheerful, the facilities were great, and the rooms were clean and comfortable. As a hostel, rather than a hotel,it was slightly more institutional, but also considerably better run than most hotels I've stayed at! I will cetainly stay again.

    You never know who you'll share a room with - I had no problems though!

    The receptionist is really nice and offers us free upgrade to a room with bathroom. Spacious for common area with well equipped kitchen Easy to find and 5-10 walking distance to station Free ticket to take train within Basel

    There is no tv in the room and it's double decked beds only. It's on the quiet side of basel
