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!

It's little bit far from SBB station. 15mins by walk. At first, Hard to find also. But facilities are good, clean. The staff was very helpful. Each bed had divider, we can have privacy. I want to stay here again.
