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

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.

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.
