A friend and I stayed here for just one night and really enjoyed how peaceful and quiet the location was out of downtown Grindelwald. Some say the downtown is too touristy, but this hostel is up on the hill of Terressenweg and quiet peaceful with quick access to a trail (a bit steep - this is the Swiss Alps) leading up the mountain for some beautiful nature hiking or down into the town. The husband and wife hosts were very helpful with orientation though the wife speaks a bit better English. The breakfast was really good, the most oats and yogurt I've ever seen in one place + bread, jam, coffee, milk and juices but no meat or eggs. I didn't have the dinner but it looked good also. I found the whole hotel to be quiet clean and well maintained.
The only downside I noticed was the creaky noise of the wooden building when walking around and thin walls, hearing others talking in the next room or hallway. If you're a light sleeper this might be an issue, and you'll also want to bring your own pillow if you have a preference. The 2 bed room we had was compact and narrow, but quiet sufficient with plenty of shelves and space under the bed for storing our stuff. There are bathrooms on the main floor but showers are downstairs along with the dirty shoes/skis room, and those showers had some great water pressure - such a delight after a long hike.
