A large group of raucous Swiss college students were staying and partyied loudly each night til 3 am or later, laughing and slamming doors. We kindly... More

The staff were nice although not there between ten and four which is a bit awkward if you have luggage. Bus stop to the falls just... More

I stayed for one night. It was a long walk (up hill) to the hostel. I arrived on Sunday evening where the information centre had closed and receptionist in another hotel said it's not too far to walk. Alternatively, you can take the bus from the train station. The hostel is clean and good value for expensive country like Switzerland.... More
