Clean but rather expensive for what it is.
Clean with a reasonable infrastructure. Expensive for what it is, modern hotel concepts have a better price / offering relation than the Youth Hostel Zurich. The youth hostel includes breakfast but given current times there was no buffet, the offered breakfast was not that great, in particular the bread. Under normal circumstances (no corona) a good place to meet people.

אחלה אכסניית נוער
צריך להתייחס למקום כאכסניית נוער ואז מקבלים פרופורציה נכונה לצערי בגלל המחיר וההמלצות חשבתי על מלון... מכאן האכזבה סהכ חדר בסיסי ללא תוספות, נקי, מיטה לא נוחה בעזיבה צריך לאסוף את המצעים והמגבת לסל בלובי המלון לא נותן כרטיסי נסיעה בתחבורה הציבורית בחינם כמו כל המלונות האחרים שהיינו בהם בשוויץ מכאן שהעלות בפועל הייתה יותר גבוה וחבל
