Our family stayed in the 4-person room in the new building. The room is clean and quite spacious. Sufficient and clean shared bathrooms. The balcony in the common room offers magnificent view of Mt Eiger. We enjoyed the view very much during breakfast and dinner time. The hotel was quite in the afternoon and we more or less privatized the... More

It was my first time to stay in a hostel with shared bathroom. We stayed in a 4-people room in the new building (with no wifi access). There were enough shared toilets and shower rooms. No tower or shower gel is provided. The main building has spacious rooms for group activities and provides free wifi. Breakfast was included and was... More

There are few hotels in Grindelwald that are inexpensive and afford great views of the surrounding mountains. You could pay hundreds of dollars more for a 4-star hotel by the train station and have a view of... the train station. Try to get a seat out on the balcony for your breakfast and dinner.

I visited with with my family last week. It is located on the hill and certainly has decent views. However I wouldn't recommend it for families with kids. We couldn't get the rooms with shower. If you are carrying heavy luggage it is difficult to carry. The bus operate from the bahnhof but every 45 minutes during may. The old... More

We stayed here for 4 nights, and we so lucky to have a room with a balcony, waking up to the view of the North Face of the Eiger was wonderful. Hostel very clean, lovely staff, nice surroundings. There are no self-catering facilities, but there is a microwave available for use if you're on a tight budget like we were.... More

We were here with my girlfriend as part of a biking trip to Switzerland. This is the sort of place where from you can really easily hit the various mountain tracks, let your thing be biking, hiking, nordic walking, or anything of that sort. The staff was friendly, the rooms were ok, though a little bit chilly in August due... More

The beautiful old chalet which houses the Grindelwald youth hostel has original wooden floors, stairs and balconies, with stunning views to the Eiger and other mountains, but also has all the modern features you would hope for. Clean bathrooms with modern power showers, wifi in all the lounge areas, comfy mattreses, great buffet breakfast, super helpful staff, a fabulous slide... More

We stayed at the hostel for one night in a bunk bed room with dinner, bed and breakfast. The food was good and the whole place was spotless and very comfortable. I couldn't fault it. Parking cost 7CHF per day. I would recommend this place without hesitation. Grindelwald in the most beautiful spot with breath taking views. The walk into... More

Fabulous 100 year old youth hostel up the hill in Grindelwald with spectacular views of the Eiger on a clear day. Had dinner and breakfast - fantastic food. Staff really great - Cornelia on reception couldn't have been nicer - same goes for all the staff we encountered. Well signposted from the station - about 20 mins up hill walk... More
