We decided to stay here a night before the Bernina Express as it was extremely well situated to the train station. We stayed in a 6 dorm room and luckily had a man doing the same thing as us. The hostel is simple downstairs but modernish upstairs. We were greeted in a really lovely way and shown around and informed... More

We stayed in a private double room for one night and it was perfectly clean and comfortable. The room was small and it wasn't easy to take a nap in the day time with a noisy dorm next door but it was way cheaper than anything else in town and was in a really convenient location.

After looking for an affordable place to stay we booked a one night stay with JBN hostel. The hostel seems to be in a red light district with Octopussy right across the road. When we checked in the staff member was very friendly and helped us carry our bags to the third floor as our backs were heavy. Our room... More

I didn't stay here for too long but just a night since I had to catch the Glacier Express early next day, but my short stay here was comfortable. I was in a six bed dorm but only two other beds were occupied. The hostel is in a great location and is just a short walk from the train station.The... More

The JBN hostel is in a great location, right by the cable car up the mountain and a short walk to the old town. The breakfast was good however it consisted of two rolls in a paper bag delivered the night before. There was cornflakes and tea, coffee and orange juice available. However there were no bowls and a limited... More

I stayed in the 18-bed dorm for one night. Surprisingly there was only four people in the room so it wasn’t as chaotic as I expected. Indeed my stay there was quite ok. The hostel was clean and had all the necessary facilities. Wifi available in the room but the signal was weak. There was a kitchen too. The only... More

I only spent one night here so I could do both the Bernina express and the Glacier express (I highly recommend doing both by the way!), and the JNB hostel was just what I needed to break up the journey. I arrived quite early after being on a night train, its a short walk from the station through the town,... More

I recently stayed overnight in Chur prior to catching the Bernina Express (amazing by the way!). We arrived late on after having spent the whole day travelling, Marco who welcomed us was very warm and kind and you got the impression he couldn't do enough for you. We quickly showered in the block (basic but clean) and went to sleep.... More

We were in Chur for one night and desperately wanted to watch an Important English soccer match. We were told our only hope was the JBN Sportsbar so we located it in what seemed to be in a red light area, as noted by a previous reviewer. The young guys running the bar were incredibly helpful, making the night one... More
