I spent one night here with my husband and stepson, who lives in Zurich. He hired a car and drove us here. As soon as we stepped out of the car the clear, fresh air hits you and the views are out of this world. The hostel was adequate for our needs. We shared a room which contained 3 bunk... More

After staying at Naturfreundehaus in summer, my wife and I decided to try a winter visit, so that we could take advantage of the regional 'Winter Walking & Sledging Pass'. It was as wonderful as ever, and I cannot recommend this place highly enough. The two hosts take every care to look after you, and they have a wealth of... More

Excellent value for money budget accommodation (by Grindelwald's standards). 20 minute walk from Grindelwald centre, but also a free bus service from Grindelwald centre right to the front door. Fabulous view of the Eiger. Can sit back and enjoy a glass of Rose on a summer evening looking out on the Eiger. Has the facilities for self-catering, but their three-course... More

This hostel also goes by the name Naturfreundehaus if you are feeling a bit confused. We had only 4 days to spend in Switzerland and I am so glad we spent the first two in Grindelwald at this hostel. After arriving at the station, we took the free bus town bus. There are several lines so be sure you let... More

This was our second visit to Naturfreundehaus in Grindelwald (we were here two years ago), and it remains an absolutely wonderful place to stay. Apart from the amazing value for money (Grindelwald prices are exceptionally high), this really does have so much to offer. The breakfast is outstanding, and I strongly recommend that you opt to pay extra for the... More

One of the best stays on our trip. Breakfast was amazing. Huge variety. Verni and her Husband made us feel so welcome. They were very quick to respond to email requests. The position is perfect. It is 5 minutes by bus from the station. The #21 bus stops at the door. The view of the Eiger is spectacular. Can highly... More

Our first Naturfreund/Friends of Nature House on the Alpen Pass Route across Switzerland. Previously stayed in the HI hostel just couple 100m down the lane but this beats it hands down on all counts - quiet (mostly over 25 walkers/outdoorsy types), amazing food - the breakfast has numerous takes on the Muesli/help yourself and eat as much as want, friendly...

Stayed here with my wife for one night. Easy to check in, clean showers and rooms. The breakfast was simple and excellent (great muesli)! Glad we stayed there! We walked from the train station with our luggage, but some may find it too steep - you might want to take the quick bus from downtown.

This was one of my favourite places to stay on my trip. It's a lovely hostel, with fantastically friendly down to earth hosts who made me feel very comfortable. There is a small kitchen, and I left too early to have breakfast but it looked promising. The views are spectacular and there is a nice garden/lawn with chairs to sit... More

The NFH in Grindelwald is a wonderful place to stay. The hosts are so friendly and helpful, and the views wonderful. The bathroom is down the hall and the showers downstairs, but they also have a washer/dryer and a lovely lawn to relax on a nice day. The breakfast was an amazing spread of grains, breads, yogurt, fresh fruit, cheeses,... More
