The charm of the city is in this hostel, you realize the industrial roots. The community rooms are lovingly furnished and invite you to stay. This is a place for young and elderly people . In short: very nice people - good breakfast - facility like new - cheap

The staff were very helpful with check in check out at odd times. The place is well maintained. Good place to stay considering Zurich is only 20-30 minutes by train. The kitchen is well maintained. Great WiFi signal strength.

I have visited so many hostels and I certainly found that Depot 195 is the best hostel in Winterthur. Along with 6 other friends, we stayed here for 14 nights and the service of the hostel was excellent. Nice staff and comfortable rooms. Highly recommended to others. I loved this place and will be back soon.

Stayed 3 nights at CHF 40.50 per night in a 4 bedroom dorm. If you are planning to visit Zurich then also allow for a return train ticket being CHF 25 per day and on average 25 minutes one way. Hostel is maybe a good 10 minute walk to the station (from the station exit on the other side from...

Thank you very much for your positive review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay in our hostel and hopefully we can welcome you again! By the way, a two-way ticket to Zurich is valid for 24 hours, you can use it during this time as much as you want. This means depending on your schedule you can use it...

This was one of the best hostels we stayed at during our travels around the world. Pretty new, nicely furbised and really cool staff. They helped us a lot with planning our stay in the city. We were there for the music festival, so quite a lot of people where there and the atmosphere on the hostel terrace was great....

Great service, clean and modern facilities and affordable prices. A great option for a accommodation close to Zurich (only a 15 minute train ride) and also for getting a feel of small town Switzerland. We just stayed one night but it was enough to have had a great experience. Hope to come back soon!

Good for a low budget stay overnight in Winterthur. Quiet rooms (actually don't know about the dorms at the first floor...) with good wi-fi connection and private bathroom. The only suggestion is to skip the breakfast in the hostel and prefer a bar outside...

If you're looking for a clean, simple, friendly place to stay in Winterthur, this hostel is a great place to go to get out of the normal hotel scenario. Staff are young, dynamic, committed and very helpful. My room was clean and comfortable, with a lovely view. It is in a reconverted industrial area that is funky and lively. My...
