First of all I must say the surrounding area is so quaint, quiet, clean and cozy. This hostel is right on the edges of a small picturesque town in Lauterbrunnen with an immediate view of the Staubbach Falls which was an amazing sight lit up at night! Accommodations: It's a campsite so I didn't expect much from the lodgings, I... More

Felt surreal arriving at this place - great scenery that it felt like a movie set! Rooms were really cozy but it was such a hassle to go the bathrooms which was in another building. It was a very unusual experience. All in all, I would still love to stay at this place cause it is like no other!! :)

I really enjoyed the area as it was breathtaking! The campsites were nice as it was covered in grass making it easy to get tent pegs into the ground. What I didn't like was the lack of free wifi and paying 1/2 a franc per 4 minutes for a hot shower, I was told the showers had a fee due... More

This is a great place to stay! Great location and wonderful staff. A bit noisy at night but that is because there is a fun bar right on the camp site. Joined in on the fun and had an amazing time. Wonderful views of the valley and the stunning waterfall

I stayed here two nights in a cabin and I enjoyed it, however you have to pay for wifi and hot showers. The bar wasn't good value for money either, but just up the hill there is a nicer bar that offers free wifi and good priced food.

Good value for money. Waking up surrounded by waterfalls and mountains was so beautiful and the location of the place is amazing! The bar and music was incredible! The rooms are quite small and stuffy and you have to pay for a hot shower and wifi, otherwise everything about this place was great!

If you love camping, you will love it here! I wouldn't class myself as high maintenance exactly but I'm not the biggest fan of communal showers and waddling back to my cabin with soaking hair! The showers were okay but you do have to pay for them. There is also a laundry room but to wash your clothes once it... More

In spite of their stated policy of closing down their bar at 10:00 pm, Camping Schuetzenbach in fact keeps it open until as late as 3:15 am, and appears to encourage the patrons to bellow as loudly as possible. It remains the worst place we have stayed in four months of traveling bar none, and to boot, they will charge... More

Stopped here on our top deck tour. Amazing location and amazing views! However the rooms are very squishy for 4 people. Little charge points and had to pay for a hot shower. Big plus was the location and the amazing fresh water! However the bar staff are very abrupt and rude. There is a no noise curfew that kicks in... More
