Single Room
Nice and quiet neighborhood, reasonable price for a breakfast buffet, convenient location as close to train station. Just the front desk didn't bother to tell me how to operate the blinds, luckily I figured that out by myself.

Great stay
The staff was great. The city I'd beautiful, the hostel is well thought out, clean, and pleasant. Only complaint, not enough electrical outlets in the dorms. Overall a great experience, though. I would absolutely recommend generation ymca!

Perfect if you need to get some work done!
No AC, but it's not really necessary. Staff is extra helpful and the location is only a 5 minute walk from the main train station. The kitchen facilities and other common areas are incredible-- stylish and spacious. They really thought of everything.

Decent enough place to stay
Check in was good. The dorm was ok, was a room with a bunk bed and one single bed, but would have liked a double. Showers were ok. Kitchen was nice as was the social area. Good wi-fi. The main downside was it was very noisy from 5 am which woke us up. Close to main railway station.

Consistently good hostel.
This is the second time I've stayed at this hostel and its nice to know my last good experience wasn't a one off. Again the staff were very friendly and helpful, the common area chilled and the kitchen well equipped. The cleanliness of the room and bathrooms couldn't be faulted and the breakfast is good value for money. If back in Basel I'll use this place again.
