This is a good option in Zermatt for the ones seeking reasonable prices. The place is clean and in quite zone of the village. The place is not very close to the station and you also need to climb up the hill to reach it, but the breathtaking of the Matterhorn from the rooms and common areas indeed worth the... More

It was my first time in Switzerland. Beautiful walk from the train station. It was hard to find so we got a taxi (craziest things in the world.) When we got there it was lovely. Nice and warm, staff were friendly. We had our evening meal ready for us. The food was alright (took a bit of adjusting to it.)... More

My sister and I stayed in a Double Ensuite at Zermatt Youth Hostel. Though not right outside the train station, it was easy to be located by foot. As for the Ensuite, we were impressed that it was very spacious and clean with a sufficient bathroom. The breakfast provided was simple yet sufficient to keep us energized for the day,... More

Liked the location and food which was complementary. Bed was cozy and much needed after the tiring trek on the Matterhorn trail. Station is couple of minutes walk which is actually true for entire Zermatt give the size of this beautiful swiss town.

This is a clean hostel wroth comfortable rooms and beds. It's not the sort that has much character but still a great place to meet fellow travellers, especially at the communal breakfast and dinner place. What I liked wad looking out of the window at night and in the morning. Full voter of the matterhorn. I would come back again... More

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
