We stayed there with our three kids in the winter. It is a beautiful spacy old building, a bit old and worn down, but very charming. The owner is exceptionally nice and helpful. There is a fully equipped kitchen and community rooms (unfortunately the games and toys that used to be there have gone). Unfortunately our room in the basement... More

The ski passes are reasonable, the lift system is superb and the queues non existant. The youth hostel is clean and cosy and the food magnificent. The showers... More

This is a guesthouse and hostel combined in a very charming wooden house overlooking the village of Leysin - it's quite a walk uphill from the village. The dorms are a little small and cramped but the beds are very comfy. The doors are never locked but Switzerland is very safe so this is not a problem. However, lockers would... More

My boyfriend and I stayed from June 25-28. A negative posting for a place in Geneva recommended the Hiking Sheep as a much better alternative, so we decided to give it a try. It took 2 trains and a cog train up the mountain, but even in the pouring rain we were able to find it without a problem. The... More
