At the heart of the lively Züri West district, and just a 10-minute tram ride from the main station, this hostel will appeal primarily to those on a tight budget and those who want to be close to the party. It shares its austere Bauhaus building with the city’s largest nightclub, so if you’re not a party animal, it’s best to request a room at the back of the hotel. X-TRA's management also books many of the bands that play in the club (and throughout Switzerland), and many of their members stay in the hotel, adding to its appeal for music fans.
