It was alright, not the greatest of hostels, as there was problems with the showers going from extreme heat to cold in a matter of seconds and then randomly turning off. The room got really humid and at one point we thought about opening the window but with the light snow we couldn't. I would recommend for a short stay.... More

I rate this hostel 4 our of 5 on the Hostel scale rather than comparing it to other places to stay (hotel, apartments). We visited this hostel as a group of seven 25 yr olds. The good: The breakfast was substantial and served from 7:30-9:30. The lounge area is spacious. The bathrooms were cleaned regularly. The desk attendant was particularly... More

We were appreciative of the lady at reception who helped us with our plans for hiking in the region. She didn't come across as particularly friendly but she was polite and helpful - maybe just tired. Reception is unstaffed for large chunks of the day - something to be aware of. The free breakfast is excellent and although there are... More

Stayed here 2nights in July 2014. I will say that it is very clean and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The price overeaches what it offers. The trip down from train station is beautiful but a lot to carry heavy bags. THE WiFi is spotty at best, showers/rooms were clean bathrooms shared by one floor made it difficult at... More

This hostel was not very hard to locate , it's about 10 to 15 minutes walk from the train station. There was only 1 cubicle and shower area in the lodge that I was placed in. The other lodge which I went into had more shower areas for male/female respectively. However, the shower areas have no doors but only curtains.... More

On the way to the hostel, I was in total awe. The surroundings speak of nature at its best. Everywhere you look is a picturesque postcard perfect view. The hostel is located near the train going up to Jungfraujoch which for me was the highlight of my trip to Europe. Also few meters is a cable car for those who... More

Staid here with two friends last weekend. Hostel is good value for money considering high prices in Grindelwald/Switzerland. Friendly staff, clean rooms and showers, great breakfast buffet. Including the tourist taxes we paid slightly over 300 CHF for 2 nights for three people. This included a charge of 25 CHF per night for the other half of a double bed... More
