Large dorm but clean room”

Nice and helpful staff

There was no lift in this apartment and this is a really large dorm. All people prepare to take the berlina express and staying in chur. A bit noisy from the street at night as there were some night clubs nearby but it's acceptable. Berlina express is worth to go and it's a good choice to hv a short stay in this budget hostel.

Awesome hostel with friendly staff”

Clean, affordable, spacious, and comfortable

staying at jbn was a wonderful experience. its about a ten minute walk from the train station to the hostel and is very easy to find. it's location is near a lot of restaurants and nightclubs and is ideal for young travelers. when we first arrived we were greeted by marco, a very friendly staff member who offered great advice and speaks excellent english. we were checked into our room and were given 2 vouchers for a free beer at the bar behind the reception. the room we reserved was a private room with an en suite bathroom (towels provided). the room was very spacious and very clean. at night the room was pretty quiet despite being near numerous bars and nightclubs. next door to our room was the common room. in the morning an array of cereals, beverages, bread and jams are prepared in the common area. our reservation had included breakfast so we were served by marco in reception. we got two large and rather filling pieces of bread, juice, nutella, jam and had a choice of hot beverage made fresh. all in all it was a surprisingly one the best places i have stayed while traveling throughout europe on a budget.

Would stay again”

Great staff, clean room, great value for money

As a solo traveller it was very comforting to have a friendly face and a very comfortable place to stay. I stayed 3 nights in a large dorm which was not occupied by any other customers for the full 3 nights so it was very quite and had the best sleep in weeks. It was a great location and really good value for money. I would stay again and happily recommend to others.

Youth Hostel in Chur”

Despite the affordability and the cleanliness of the room, it did not compensate for the district it was in as it is above a bar amongst a street of nightclubs and gentlemens clubs; the comfort of the bed AND couch as it was HORRIBLE, in addition to the the fact that this hostel's only staffed hours were from 4PM-8PM. On a positive note, the staff that was there were helpful and friendly, and the tiles in the bathroom were heated! But I would not come back again.

Hostel above pub”

Overall the value is there. location is ok. About 15-20mins walking from the train station. Facilities is ok. Just that the staircase is a little too steep and it’s dangerous for those who carry a luggage. The bar is very happening at the night time and might be a bit noisy to those who wanna sleep early. The host is caring by providing headphone for all the occupant.

How noisy can it be, right? Imagine going to sleep in the middle of a dancefloor with all the bass pounding - it was ridiculous. I tried to sleep with earplugs and Bose noise cancelling headphones and still couldn’t. DO NOT STAY.

Good option, not too shabby.... If you have nothing else left”

All in all my stay was very smooth. Chur as a place isn't that great compared to other cities tho. Regarding the hostel, There was self check in, which is not great when you solo travel as you wanna meet people, places, have a free guide..... Also, I consider the price In a room of 18 people to be high, even for Swiss standards,

Reklamation ”

Hallo, zunächst legen wir Beschwerde und Reklamation ein , im Internet macht das Hostelbild Farbe einen anderen Eindruck, als wir Abend ankamen ,war keiner Anwesend, der Hosteleingang dreckig, Briefkasten kaputt, Hotrlinhaber hat sich per Mail abgemeldet und Check in Karte mit Code angegeben, hat auch geklappt,aber als wir in die Eingangstür traten, empfing uns ein fürchterlicher süßlicher Gestank , der sich bis in die 3 Etagen verteilte, wer Asthma hat,stirbt an dem Gestank, wie kann man als Wirtin Gästen sowas anbieten , Zimmer über steile Treppen erreichbar , Hostel mit Krimskrams voll gestellt, Zimmer der gleiche Geruch, im gesamten Haus und nun zur Beschwerde und Reklamation/ um 24:00 ging DJ Barbetrieb neben an los , starkes ständiges Basstiefen Gewummere , wir haben kein Augen zu bekommen , am Fenster unterhalb lautes Gegröle von anwesenden Frauen, um 2:45 Uhr habe ich im 1. Stock aus Fenster geschaut , direkt neben Hostel ist ein DJ Bar ,die dort anwesenden Leute standen grölend auf der Straße , leider hat die Hostelwirtin nicht dies im Internet Buchungsangaben angegeben,daher fordern wir Preisnachlass und Regress, des bezahlten Preises, das ganze Hostel ist eine Kaschemme und gehört gesperrt für Touristen, unzumutbar für Reisende, die am nächsten Tag 500 km fahren müssen,daher werde ich auch die Stadt Chur/CH informieren , auch am früh morgen hat sich dort keiner sehen lassen , und dies glaube ich , ist auch vor Unannehmlichkeiten für die Wirtin so geplant, weiter noch die Bezahlung erfolgt über Karte mit Angabe der Kartennummer mit Belastung ohne PIN Eingabe ???im Internet bei ihr steht aber was anderes, leider null Bewertung und auf keine Fall „““ BUCHEN „““ die Duschen Ecken Schimmel, Waschbecken dreckig,Klo verdreckt Mülleimer nicht geleert, in Dusche alte vergessene Rasierutensilien usw.
