The Basel Youth Hostel is located close to the Rhine inside a classicist factory building, built for a silk ribbon factory in 1850 / 1851. It was converted into a Youth Hostel in 1979 and the outer facade was kept almost unchanged. It now offers around 250 beds in different room configurations.

The building was renovated in 2010 according to a design by the Basel architecture practice Buchner Bründler. Since then, a bridge across the St. Alban ponds leads to the main entrance and a wooden walkway leads to a quiet terrace.
