Got a private room with share bathroom. The bathroom is just outside our room. A really great hostel with available shared kitchen. Cook everything u can get from coop supermarket nearby rather than the expensive Swiss food. Waterfall, snow mountain and grassy lawn view from out window. There I balcony as well for our room. Like a perfect hostel!

Valley Hostel is in a great location right in the middle of Lauterbrunnen with beautiful terraces overlooking the mountains. But there are flies literally everywhere in the hostel. The rooms are incredibly stuffy, have to open the window to air them out. There is one bathroom (one for men, one for women) for everyone staying in the hostel. There are... More

Tucked away in this small town of Lauterbrunnen, it is the hostel to stay! Spectacular view from the balcony of the room! Room, toilets and kitchen were extremely new and clean! Great place to cook some meals. Wifi was top-notch! My most enjoyable stay in Switzerland. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a place to stay around the Jungfrau region.

We enjoyed our recent stay at Valley Hostel with a view of the big waterfall from our room. There is free WIFI in the rooms which is handy. The only con to this place was that the next day after leaving they hassled us saying we had taken the room key with us, only to find it later where the... More

Recently stayed at this hostel while on a trip with my girlfriend. Price was very cheap compared to the other accomodations in Lauterbrunnen. 2 nights for me and my girlfriend were CHF 152 compared to other hotels available during the same duration for GBP100+ per night. The hostel is about 3 minutes walk from the train station. Lauterbrunnen is a... More

Shared a private room in the hostel with my son and was stunned by the views out our window. The location is easily walkable to the train station and also both trains up the mountains. Place was very clean and the kitchen facilities looked very nice although we did not use them. The shared bathroom on our floor was occupied... More

Stayed here for a few nights ski touring. Very comfortable, friendly and cheap (in any sense, amazingly so for Switzerland!). Excellent showers and bathrooms generally. There is also a launderette, ski room and luggage storage. As I was away for a few days skiing, they let me leave some clothes etc. in a separate storage room. Open a dorm window... More

This was my 4th stay at the hostel. Location is excellent, close to rail station and a view of the Staubach waterfalls. The family Abegglen continues to do a great job. Facilities for budget travelers are top shelf, quite well furnished kitchens and rooms and beds are comfortable. The laundry in front of hostel adds detergent automatically and the waiting... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon in a private room with shared bathrooms. The hostel itself is situated right in the center of town with wonderful view all round and everything within walking distance. The staff was very helpful in aiding us booking tickets for the Jungfrau and helping me find a camera shop... More
