One of the best hostels in Europe

Easy to find, friendly, great value for money
We had a lovely stay at the Basel Backpack Hostel. Staying one night in a dorm and one in a private room, both nights were clean, comfortable and the other guests in the hostel were also friendly and considerate. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming, and even lent us a dry bag so that we could take a swim in the river (google swimmers in the Rhine in Basel!). The hostel is in a great location, with a micro-brewery, dance school, and restaurant and bar in the vicinity. We'll definitely be staying there again and recommending it to all of our friends!

Great hospitality

Nice staff to provide all information you need
It took us some time to walk from the train station, around 15 minutes, but it's still manageable. Staff welcomed us in the reception and he provided all information we need, about the city, walking tours, free day-pass tickets and wifi password, before we asked him. The room was okay, with comfortable mattress. Highly-recommended !
