We enjoyed our stay here, though we only used it as a base, but the room was practical and comfortable. It does lose a star because most youth hostels have some self catering/cooking facilities and this one, as at 2013 which is when we stayed here, does/did not. If this has changed since our visit please accept our apologies! We... More

This is the best place to sleep with the lovely view on Matternhorn. The rooms are ascetic but very practical. The breakfast is included in he room price. It is mostly porridge and other milk soup and some bread and jams. But the view is replacing every inconvenience. We had also chance to eat good dinner served as a you... More

Accommodation on Zermatt is usually very expensive. Youth Hostel was the most affordable place. Prepare to walk for about 15-20 mins with climbing up the hill and after that stairs! Don't bring bulky luggages. We had a private room with ensuite shower. Room was clean and ok. Wifi connection was only available in the main building. Staffs were friendly

My girlfriend and I just stayed in Zermatt for an adventure weekend of kick bike riding, paragliding and via ferrata. The Youth Hostel in Zermatt was wonderful. We had a private room with shower. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were clean. The breakfast was good and we even ate dinner in the hostel for CHF 17.50/person/dinner. That... More

Lovely place to stay with a good view of the Matterhorn. You get everything you need. Clean rooms, cozy lobby and good food for a fair price in Switzerland. Sitting in front of the house and see the Matterhorn is just the best.

A great hostel with super friendly and helpful staff! Everything was really clean and tidy. It's a 10-15 min walk from the train station and the last wee bit is steep but fantastic views from the rooms! Breakfast was good with a good self serve coffee machine! A choice of cereals and spreads for bread and fruit and yoghurt. A... More

I came to the Youth Hostel after my Airbnb host made me feel uncomfortable. I was shook up by the situation and made it to the hostel before check in hours. The girls cleaning the hostel that day were so friendly and after talking with me about the situation, they offered me tea and I hung out until their manager... More

It has clean room with remarkable meals. Open the window and you see Matterhorn right in your your eyes! The best location you can find in Zermatt!!! Hard to book and takes a long walk and climb before you can reach it. ;)

Okay. So when I say worth it, I mean because Zermatt is freaking awesome and this place is situated in a great spot. Yes there are flaws but to everyone who is winging. Stop, remember where you are. We booked a private room and it was pretty good. Had a balcony and was quiet. To be honest we'd probably stay... More
