This was an above average hostel and nice place to stay....for one night only. The view was phenomenal, the staff was friendly, and the rooms were clean, but one night was plenty. The hostel is located very far away from the train station which is inconvenient when carrying all of your luggage, but the view from the top is worth... More

Well, we expected Zermatt to be an expensive place.... but after 2 hours there, we decided to cancel the second night in the Zermatt Youth Hostel. Not because it was bad - it was a very nice hostel, very clean, firendly people, an amazing view, far over average... - but as Interrailers who wanted a cheap trip through Europe, Zermatt... More

Lovely YH in terrific alpine village. Whilst uphill walk to get there, hostel has views of Matterhorn from many windows. Good value evening meals help reduce costs in pricey town too. Walk to all mountain railways and walking tracks.

The best youth hostel in Zermatt. You'll receive a nice tidy cozy room with view of Matterhorn with very less money. You'll just need to work out a bit to get tho the hostel but heyyy its worth it, trust me !!!

I was in this lodging for 2 nights and it was satisfactory. The hostel is clean and hygienic. It is definitely not cheap compared to other countries but assuringly yes when one compares to rest accommodations inside switzerland (a country that is simply costly) The hostel is a wee bit up a hillock away from the central region, which is...

It's a pretty decent hostel with all the basic amenities. The rooms and pretty neat and clean. It's really surprising that such hostels don't have elevator. So if you're carrying heavy luggages with your children it's not really suitable. Otherwise it's a good place to stay in Zermatt.

There are broadly two parts of Switzerland the German and French. And the ethos and way of working of two are different and contrasting. We had just left Interlaken and some very stark difference emerged. The German Interlaken were business like and had a live reception 24 by 7. When we went to ask them for some spoons and glasses...

It's rare to find affordable accommodation like this in Switzerland since Switzerland is generally known to be quite expensive. Regardless, beds are comfortable and the staff are friendly and helpful when it comes to providing information about Zermatt attractions. One thing about it's location is that although it's just a 15-20 minute walk from the train station, the fact that... More

Stayed in spring (low season) so had lots of time to "consult" staff about everything in town from restaurant and bar recommendations to information about various time tables for trains, history of the hostel, etc. Front desk staff were incredibly friendly and happy making it a pleasure to stay here. Save money on lodging by staying at the hostel and... More
