Nice Hostel, located in a very central place, clean & down to earth. Price-performance, especially for groups (overnight stay & breakfast package) is great. Can be quite noisy, but still a good place to stay for reasonable money.

I was given an upper bunk and surprisingly, there was no ladder to climb up. So i requested to change and they did. Another issue i faced: on paying with an US credit card, the receptionist must have pressed the option -- "pay in USD ...."; rather than "pay in CHF ...";- CHF was the second option while paying in...

The Mountain Hostel in Grindelwald was a great hostel find - reasonably priced with a delicious breakfast included. We had a private room which was very nice and clean. The receptionist was very pleasant and got us checked in quickly. After a long day of hiking, it was pleasant to end up here and enjoy a nice dinner at the... More

Spent 3 nights with my mates at the hotel. Everything was good. Probably the best accommodation we had throughout our 32 days journey in Italy and Switzerland. Free and fast wifi, free and good breakfast, good reception service (very informative and patient), price was valuable (p.s. free bus), location was good (bus stops and train station nearby, 10mins walk to...

Te location is absolutely unbelievable - although you're actually not terribly close to any trail heads, you can't complain about the extra walking if you're there to hike. My one complaint is that the directions they gave assume you arrive from the closer train station, which is not the "main" train station for the village. The kitchen, although well equipped,...

Stayed there with a mountaineering group cause we climbed Moench next day. Staff was friendly and the hostel well organized. Unfortunately the reception will close already at 9 pm if you wanna have a beer in the evening you have to walk 20 minutes to Grindelwald center.

Friendly & helpful staff. Efficient operation means lower cost. Breakfast was tasty and well attended with plenty of space even when a large group was there. Local bus is free with stay but times weren't always convenient for us and not so easy to figure out but main train station (to Interlaken) is only 15 minutes walk. The Jungfrau cog... More

hie jasu69 Thanks for your review, our boot dryer is automatically adjusted for the night, if you sleep on since :) so we can save electricity and guarantee a favorable room rate for guests. We are sorry that we had a stampede of guests in the morning, they all came to the same time. We will improve. More
