The hostel is situated literally, beside a mountain. The hike going to the "gasthaus" is spectacular! It is seriously beyond words. The lunch was amazing as well. We had beef goulash and ordered extra cheese rousti. I highly recommend this place to everybody! The lunch menu price is quite steep, but you have to understand that it is hard to... More

We took the Ebenalp cable car up the mountain. First we went to the peak to see to amazing view and then followed the signs for Aescher. We had been told it was a steep descent but it really wasn't too bad and certainly worth it! All along the walk is beautiful and then you see the Berggasthaus nestled in... More

The view was amazing, I would go back again. The hotel was quaint, the people were great. Very central to all the hiking trails. The 13 euro bottle of water was a bit excessive. I would have much rather drank the rain water collected from the mountain as I'm sure it would have been just as pure. The food (Rosti)... More

Ok, so the view is magnificent, the hotel was amazing & the owners/staff were terrific. We stayed in a semi-private loft which we found to be a change from the norm and loved it. The 2 issues I had that kept me from thoroughly enjoying my stay is as follows: 1. The price for a bottle of water (13 euros).... More

This has to be put on your bucket list. Fantastic, awe inspiring location with a delicious Rosti and friendly English speaking staff. We took the Ebnaulp cable car up, ate at the Aescher Inn and walked back down the mountain (slightly hair raising, but a great achievement!). It was 36 degrees and so we were rather hot and tired after... More

It's like camping in the Swiss Alps, but with a few upgrades! We took the cable car ride up, enjoyed some beers on the deck, and had a nice dinner in the restaurant. We went just last night (May 25, 2015) and it was freezing. Luckily we were prepared since we knew we would be sleeping on a thin mattress... More

My husband and I hiked up to the house and stayed over night, and then hiked back out. It was an unforgettable experience. The hike up and down is gorgeous with sweeping views and mountain pastures. Once we got to the house, we were able to drop our gear off in the bunk room, and head out to the huge... More

I cannot believe I haven't reviewed this one after I visited. It was a great find... Beautiful place in Alps, delicious food. Place offers no hot water and no shower, shared rooms, have to take a cable car to get to. Lots of hiking trails around and plenty of amazing views. I was there in August and it gets pretty... More

Out of our three week Europe trip, we all loved this place the most. It might have been the incredible scenic beauty everywhere we looked, or the charming cozy 170 year old Guesthouse built right into the cliff. It is the kind of experience that you will remember all your life. I loved the gondola ride up, the short hike... More

I stayed in zurich. Rented a car and drove to the area. You can take the train but it will take you a few transfers and a few hours. When we got there took the cable car. We hiked around the area for an hour and just enjoyed the view. This restaurant is 10-15 min hike downward from where the... More
