Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.
Took a while to find your post. I was planning to go home by train from Zurich evening on the 29th. I thought of going to Munich that evening but that is complicated since there are no longer direct trains. Staying in Zurich is probably too expensive (though good quality. There are a few 4-stars offering 2-star prices, but they are still upper-end Swiss 2-start prices).

We could think of July 19 when I'll be free somewhere in Southern Bayern.

there's some good B&B's in Zurich that are not too expensive and the youth hostel has private rooms which are not too bad.

Which youth hostel is that? Whenever I find  a low-cost place they "improve" it and "improve" the prices"

Anyway, a detour though Munich would probably take a bit too long as well (and I will probably commit to my old plans by buying the Innsbruck-Trento section when I'm in Innsbruck tomorrow - compulsory reservation as it's the night train to Rome, but OeBB does not sell it online).

the Jugendheberge in Zurich costs about 70 chf per night if you are in a room by yourself, 42 if you share with others.  it's easy to find.  take the number 7 tram outside of the Hauptbahnhof to Wollishofen and walk about 500 m.  

it should just be listed in english as the Zurich youth hostel, although you don't need to be a youth to stay there.

if you don't like that, try Dakini's B&B for about 70 chf for a single.  there are other b&b's as well, but I know that one.
