To be honest, it is not the top quality. However with this low price compared to others in Zermatt, it is okay to stay there for 1-2 days. The room was rather small and little bit dark but the bed was quite comfortable. The location is good, not that faraway from the station as people complain (this town is super... More

Quite far away from station, around 20mins walk but good location to view Matterhorn. Afterall, this is the cheapest hostel we found in Zermatt thus we didn't expect much. Poorly-maintained rooms, smelly bed (hardly to turn in even though i was pretty tired). There's only one power socket in a 6 dorm beds room, we were sharing to charge devices... More

this is the worst hostel I have ever stayed in - and I have traveled the world, staying in hostels. It was also terrible value for money! The beds are extremely uncomfortable, the pillows are flat and they don't supply a duvet, just a really horrible, unclean military style blanket - which was stanking and mine was covered in other...

I liked this place a lot. The staff are friendly and helpful and it's cheap. Don't listen to the other reviews with people moaning. Sure there isn't an unlimited supply of hot water for a shower, but it's a small cosy and very social hostel. :) .

This hostel is one of the worst that I've stayed in. It is very expensive and for the price you would certainly expect better facilities. It's very shameful of the owners to see so many bad reviews on here yet not do anything to change it. If it were my hostel i would be ashamed to do business with such... More

Amazing location just dont think skimping the high accommodation costs will make it something you'll enjoy. Advertised as 6 bunk i was placed in an overcrowded shipping container like room crammed with 8 steel pile bunks with the thinnest foam mattress i have ever encountered in 20 years of traveling. This over timber slats which you can feel as you... More

It is like you have wandered into an old military barracks. Bad (old) beds and cabinets, small and not to clean showers and bad (free) wifi (often did not work). Poor maintenance and cleanliness. I can only say - be sure to avoid this place....

Dude, if you are alone and need just a bed in Zermatt, well you may try your luck! If you are with someone else, anything is going to be better! We arrived at 16:30 and there was nobody at the reception! The place is a mess, looks and feels dirty! We paid 90 francs for a room with just a... More

I have visited Zermatt with my wife, kid and mother. When I booked this was the only available property within my budget. So, was a bit worried to stay in a hostel with small kid and elder mother. The location is a bit away from Railway station but near to the ropeway station. The building is a bit old and... More

I'm not sure how they managed to fit a hostel in such small of a space, but they did. When there is more than 1 person on the stairs, you literally have to squeeze by one another. The location is good, right in the heart of Zermatt. Also, only a 10-15 minute walk from the train station The wifi can... More
