Well, I'm living so close to Zurich, that I never had to stay in a hostel or hotel in Zurich. But if I were a tourst, I'd stay here.
Unique Quality: The location is excellent. Right in the heart of the Old Town, about 10 minutes walk from the Main Station, 2 minutes to the next Tram Stop and just about 10 minutes walk to the lake. GREAT!
Directions: The Niederdorfstrasse is the main walking street in the Old Town. The hotel is about 5 min. walk from Central. Check out the map. The entrance is in a smaller sidealley. You have to turn to the right at the nice Kebap Stand on the left.

The City Backpacker-Hotel Biber
I have never been inside this backbacker as I had my own apartment. The reason why I picked this one to introduce is because of his great location in the Niederdorf. I think the prices are quite reasonable for Zurich
We sleeped in City Backpacker...
We sleeped in City Backpacker hostel.
Unique Quality: First you step in to this relatively small hostel from one narrow sidestreet of Niederdorfstrasse you think 'this can't be good at all...'. That's because of you have to climb up dirty and old stairs to get to the reception... When you find the reception it might be also closed if you happen to come in wrong time (reception isn't open between 12-15 afternoon).
Reception works fine and staff is enthusiastic and smiling.
Rooms are clean and there is also a kitchen on each floor. WC's and showers are common and not so clean all the time.
Directions: Niederdorfstrasse 5 (near to the night life central of Zurich)
Hotel Biber / City Backpacker

right in the heart of buzzing niederdorf
I recently stayed at the Biber and found it excellent. It's often full so it's better to make reservations in advance. In case you are stuck there's a second hostel, a HI, but it's located out in the suburbs. Address will follow soon.
Unique Quality: It's the city's backpacker's hostel at Niederdorfstrasse 5, in the old town, where the nightlife is. A really nice hostel, in the middle of everything, for 29 swiss francs a night in the dorms.
Directions: in a side lane
