We read previous reviews that the hostel is really far from the station so we decided to take the village bus up and it saves us a lot of walking! We went up the gornergrat mountain before boarding the bus and the driver said that ticket up the mountain gave us a free one-way ride up! So I strongly recommend... More

Zermatt is one of the most amazing places I've ever been! So wherever you stay its worth it! This hostel was lovely and they were so nice to us! The only thing is we had two big bags with us and by the time we got to the hostel we were absolutely worn out! You have to climb up so... More

This hostel is a fairly long uphill walk from downtown but the location is acceptable. However, I will never understand how a hostel does not have wifi in each room. Almost all of the Swiss hostels on a recent trip have that important amenity. The breakfast was well laid out and was as good as any other hostel. Our room... More

This YH is located in a quiet district about 15 min walk from the train station. Compared with other accommodations in this village, it's price is reasonable. Tourists with heavy luggages may feel hesitateto stay here as the buildings of this YH are on the steep slope. The wi-fi only works in the main building.

An impressive incredibly well polished hostel maintained to a very high standard. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and well set up and the views of the Matterhorn spectacular. The included breakfast was very generous but wouldn't recommend the paying extra for the provided dinner as it was basic and the portions not that big. The possibilities for hiking here... More

We stayed in the youth hostel for one night in a double room, and it was very nice. Athough there were a lot of stairs to the hostel AND a lot of stairs to our room (it was on the 4th floor), we were rewarded with an awesome view on the Matterhorn. The price is very good (about half the... More

It's a bit far from the station, but clean and cozy place. I could see the Matterhorn from my room window!!

As hostels go, and we have seen a few, this is top notch. Clean, affordable and meals will please most- dinner 17 CHF( book in the am) and breakfast included. Shared washrooms were spotless - remember to bring towels, bedding supplied. If you have lots of luggage take a taxi or bus from train station otherwise about a 15 min... More

Pros: - extremely friendly staff. Very helpful to make sure you get the most out if your trip - half price of most other competitor hotels ( or less than that). Zermatt is expensive - easy dinner offered for CHF16.50 prebooked. Save money compared to dining out Cons: - basic - no wifi in adjacent buildings - slightly harder to... More
