Very close to central Basel and right near the train station lies this modern hostel in a renovated old factory building. Check out the photos! Private rooms of various sizes are available with multiple beds, and dorms are also on offer. Some private rooms have ensuite bathrooms, and others have shared bathrooms. An all-female dorm option is available, too. (Family rooms are also available, and the facility is also wheelchair friendly.)
Nearby in the Gundeldingen area, you can find restaurants, bars, the circus school (seriously?!?), libraries, theaters, rock-climbing walls, parks, and more. You won't be lacking of any activities in Basel during your stay. And you will receive a free public transportation pass with your booking, too! A short tram ride will take you into the heart of Basel.
A shared kitchen, common area, internet, and other amenities are on offer here to make your stay very comfortable, and the colorful decorative style of the hostel is warm and inviting. Rooms and bathrooms are all modern, clean, and comfortable. The dorms have furniture other than just the bunks, and some bunks are set up with larger, double-sized bottom beds, too. Lockers are also available for safe-keeping of your luggage in the dorm rooms.
The outdoor patio area and indoor library and common areas are cozy, comfortable, and social.
