We visited during summer and the place was clean, peaceful and the food was delicious. They upgraded us to a couples room for free. The staff were also very helpful. Grindelwald town is quite touristy but if you hike into the hills it is really really beautiful, which we loved.

This was a fun place for us to stay. Owners were so friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. We were there 3 nights and had no problems. Just make sure you take the bus up the mountain or you'll have to walk...and by walk I mean hike.

We stayed 3 nights in this amazing place, with great views, helpful staff, and a beautiful location. We slept well all 3 nights and had a great time, attacked the Grosse Scheidegg on day 2 and spent a restful afternoon basking in the mountain views. Even though we opted out of the dinner, it smelt great. The included breakfast was... More

We stayed for a weekend. Our room had 2 bunk beds, nothing more, nothing less. We had to share the bathroom and toilet. The hotel will pick you up from the station. It is a very basic hotel, and perfect if you are just looking for a cheap place to crash during your ski weekend / holiday. I missed out... More

We were on a 14-day hike on the Via Alpina and needed a place to stay on this leg of the journey. We'd stayed at a Naturfreundehaus before, and this one was every bit as good. We arrived hot and sweaty, and our hostess immediately gave each of us tall glasses of peppermint iced tea (no charge). She speaks excellent... More

I stayed at the Naturfreundehaus as part of a hiking group and found it basic but good. It's a hostel so don't expect too much but it's better than the youth hostel down the road. Smallish rooms with bunk beds and a shared bathroom. If you're not bothered about luxury and don't mind walking up the hill or working out... More

We stayed here for three nights on our recent trip to the Swiss Alps. Very affordable, rate includes breakfast. We used this as a base for our hikes and excursions. The hostel has an alpine charm and is clean. The view of the north face of Eiger from right outside the hostel is terrific. Vreni and Heinz were both warm... More

So much to recommend about this place: the location is very peaceful, the view is stunning, the prices are reasonable. We were traveling with our young daughter, so we opted to eat dinner each night at the hostel to avoid scrambling for something suitable at the end of each day. I'm so glad we did - it was always delicious.... More

A friend and I stayed here for just one night and really enjoyed how peaceful and quiet the location was out of downtown Grindelwald. Some say the downtown is too touristy, but this hostel is up on the hill of Terressenweg and quiet peaceful with quick access to a trail (a bit steep - this is the Swiss Alps) leading... More

We stayed there for 2 nights. We were in the mountains. The hotel looks very good and has alpen atmosphere. Rooms, toilets and showers were clean. You can use the kitchen and all stuff in there. Staff is very kind, helpfull and friendly. There is beautiful view when you rest on a deck chair. Thank you for nice stay.
