Studenthouse Vinzenz-anyone?

Hi everyone,
I will be moving soon to Zurich and I obviosuly have no apartment yet. The university has found for me a room at this student house, as a temporary accommodation. Anyone has been there and knows how it is?

Re: Studenthouse Vinzenz-anyone?

I have never stayed there personally, but a friend put up some guests there over the summer.

On a bright/sunny day, it feels like a charming old Provencal house with high ceilings and massive old windows. It is at the door-step of a forest.

Toilets & showers are shared unless you get the very few rooms with en-suites. The double rooms have a desk, bed, wash basin and small bar size fridge. There is one big common kitchen on the ground floor, as well as laundry area. Overall, it is clean with lots of common spaces to hang out (a big breakfast coffee area which serves as a lounge in the evening).

A decent size grocery store (Coop), and a well served bus stop are within walking distance from the hostel (5-7 mins). It is around 20-25 minutes from the main station in Zurich (2 changes: trolley bus and tram).

The hostel is situated in a residential & green area (Witikon) so don't expect too much action around the hostel but you can be downtown in 20 mins or so.

If you need any guidance once you get here, drop me a line.

Good-luck with the move!

Re: Studenthouse Vinzenz-anyone?

Thanks a lot for the feedback, it actually sounds pretty good

Just wondering if public transportation from Witikon goes all night, or if I will have to come back home by 12am, Cinderella-style.

I really appreciated the offer of help, and beware...I might take advantage of it

Thanks again,
MaTe

You should be fine on Friday & Saturday as ZVV (zurich public transport) has a night time-table & tariff.

I cannot remember what the last bus is on weekdays but check out this link :

http://www.zvv.ch/de/linien-und-zonen/nachtnetz.html

Bus : 34 (zurich city)
Suburban bus : 786, 747, 753 (to be confirmed)

The bus 34 operates from Klusplatz to Loorenstrasse (your stop).

The surburban buses also start at Klusplatz but go further out of the city and have a reduced frequency compared to the 34 which is every 6-8 minutes at peak times.

Cheers
