Best Budget: Budget Hostel Zürich
“Budget” is something of a foreign concept in notoriously expensive Zürich, so the best way to stay cheaply is to look at hostel accommodations. Best Budget Hostel is a quiet, private option just north of the city center. The service is friendly, the rooms are clean and public transport links connect you to central Zürich in approximately 15 minutes. Recently redecorated in a quirky Pop Art style, all seven rooms include towels, a flat-screen TV, free high-speed Wi-Fi and central heating.
Double Rooms share a bathroom, but if you find yourself with a few Swiss francs to spare, you can upgrade to a Large Double Room with a private ensuite instead. A communal kitchen allows you to save money by catering for yourself, while the lounge is a great place to make new friends. The hostel also stands out for its large garden, as well as for useful amenities, including laundry facilities, luggage storage and cheap on-site parking.
