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

We stayed as a family of 4, for 11 nights in an ensuite room. Plenty of space and storage in the room. Bathroom was very clean, with plenty of hot water . Only downside was the bunk beds. Room was large enough to fit a double bed and a set of bunks. The hostel was well set up for a... More

I stayed in a twin room with shared bathroom facilities. Toilets and showers were always clean and rarely had to wait for shower. Bed super comfy with linen provided. All rooms have a sink and lockable cupboards which was great. Food was excellent and staff all very friendly. Only slight downsides - showers were on a push button which timed... More
