We stayed for one night in a 4 bedded room ( bunk beds). It is very basic but comfortable and ideal if you only want to sleep there. It's about a 5 minute walk from the cable car and practically next to the mountain train. Breakfast was adequate with a small selection of cereals, cheese , bread and drinks.

Most wunderful place for a basic budget stay. Friendly stuff and the sunshine made a perfect weekend. Balcony is worth an upgrade. For dinner the chef freshly cooks the famous cordonbleu. The vally is definetly a must see when visiting switzerland.

Anyway, it's absolutely clean, beds are comfy... More

I went in Summer. This hostel is nice, not too expensive either. English speaking, friendly staff, who live in the town. The hostel used to be 'Hotel Alpina' built in 1904, but in 1992, changed to Adrenalin. It keeps a lot of it old style, and the outside and parts of the inside seem to still be from the 1970's....

Adrenalin is an easy walk just around the corner from the funicular and just a few steps from the grocery store and bakery. My husband and I booked a double room which had a bathroom en suite which was important to us. That feature is rare in most hostels. Adrenalin was very clean, and Marcus and his staff were quite...
