This hotel is about 15 minutes walking distance from the train station. The room was a generous size, didn't mind the shared shower. Microwave available to use. There is a grocery store near the train station if you want to save some money on food. A river runs about twenty steps away from the hotel and it only takes about... More

They say it´s 10 mins from the center, but it´s a hill upside, so it´s not a nice walk..especially with bags. There was the most nice party in the city during night time when I was there, but buses are available only until 4pm. Went a long way uphill, was ok because there were lots of ppl. But on my... More

Hello Gabriela Thanks for the review of our hotel! In our confirmation are the opening times of the reception, we will probably do better to read. Even our way to the train station is specified in 15 minutes the local buses run directly from the station to our home! Too bad that they did not find the restaurant, 2 minutes... More

Good breakfast, nice atmosphere. Our kids loved the table tennis table outside, even after a good hike. Although not located in the centre of Grindelwald, where you'll find the Coop Supermarket, it is a very good location for hiking trips. And oh well, that supermarket is just a pretty steep but wonderful 15min walk upstairs. You came for hiking didn't... More

This was one of the better hostels I have ever been to. It is close to the train station and a bus makes routine trips to the center of the town. The workers are friendly and helpful. No shady people stayed with us as well. Overall, I was pleased.

I know it's a hostel, but still. One toilet for like 30 people (there were some more downstairs, but who wants to go Down stairs at night?) No glasses in the room, I was bloody thirsty cause it was hot. The sink had an iffy smell that made the room stink, I swear it wasn't the 6 people in the... More

Being in Switzerland you can expect a superb breakfast with real good cheese and chocolate. It is also close to the train station and the restaurant and one can take some great walks around there. There is a little stream close by. Houses are only allowed to be build in the same style, which really looks idyllic. The rooms on... More

I stayed one night here, had an awesome view of the Eiger north face from the room and could hear the soothing sound of the river flowing near the hotel. It has a good atmosphere and they have a BBQ microwave and kettle to use, no kitchen unfortunately. They have table tennis, foosball and pool table. Lockers in rooms too... More

This hostel has a good breakfast and an excellent location. However, it also has a few annoyances. Unlike most other hostels, it charges extra for blankets or duvets. So even if you arrive with your own sheets or sleeping bag liner, you will still need to pay extra for the duvet or blankets. To add insult to injury, the extra... More
