“Nice and cheap stay, especially for people travelling in groups.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

I stayed at this hostel for 3 days last year. Upon arriving at the hostel, check in went smooth. The hostel is family driven and the staff were friendly and helpful.
The rooms had multiple beds, with a wash basin but no toilet as expected. Central showers and toilets are clean. If i remember correctly, internet is free but you have to ask for a password. Breakfast is standard and it is adviced to bring a correct adapter plug for using any electric appliance that you may bring with you(switzerland does not have the same plug as EU) or the hostel will lend you one for a small fee.
All in all, I had a good experience and will recommend it to anyone.

The staff speak good English and are very friendly. The whole Hostel is very clean and looked after, you can see there is some pride taken in the standard.

Breakfast is a standard Swiss cold buffet including a selection in the likes of cereal, Muesli, Bread, Cheese,Luncheon Ham, Coffee etc, etc. I was very happy with what was offered.

Offering free WIFI is awesome. More than some of the high class Hotels can offer.

The cute 'Chuglä' bar at the Hostel is quaint and nice. Its good to see the familiar face of one of the receptionists working the bar after Ive played on the slopes.

The Hostel is very close to both the Männlichen lift and Grindelwald Grund Train Station so plenty of options to get around. If you want to get up into the main street, its an easy train or bus which is free (i.e. included in ski pass), but at night it will be about a 15-20 min stroll (at least its all down hill to get back home).

Id like to thank one of the staff, Claudia, for making sure my jacket was kept safe after a heavy night!

Note there is a weekend levy (in the snow season at least). Highly recommended!

Did I mention that it was clean?

This hostel might well be the only soultion to fully enjoy the Swiss Alps at a reasonable price. Located just next to the Männlichen lift, it is warm and cozy, and offers accommodation for every occasion: 6-people hostel rooms for lone travellers or friends, double or quadruple rooms for couples and families. The toilets and showers are shared, but clean and well functioning, and that's normal for this class of accommodation. The common room has vending machines for hot and cold beverages and snacks, plus a pool and a foosball table, couches and TV.

Towels and bed sheets are not included in the price, so BYO or pay a little extra; breakfast and wifi, however, are.

When booking, check or ask for offers: usually you can have the skipass and ski rental together with the accommodation for a reduced price.

Definitely THE place to stay for skiers and hikers in the Grindelwald region.

Room Tip: For more privacy, try to get a room between 41 and 44. They are located in a separate part of the bu...

Free wifi! Lovely communal area. Clean linen and comfortable beds ( we were in a quad). The showers do this water saving thing and switch off every few minutes, and the lights too. But the hostel is close to the train station so going to jangfrau is easy. The bus to town is free. The breakfast was just ok.

Great hostel, great view, great services, clean, refrigerator, grill, microwave etc for guests. Very helpful staff, good breakfasts. However, could be very noisy at night, though stopped by about 11 pm. Also, quite expensive for a hostel - however, I think that may be switzerland rather than the hostel itself - and definitely great service on every count - couldn't ask for more.

I have stayed here twice before and I can't fault it. Its perfectly situated beside the train station or the local bus gets you into town in 5mins. Hotels in the area are very pricey so it was great to come across this hostel as the prices make Grindelwald an affordable short break, I've just booked my third trip there. Staff are so friendly and welcoming and the breakfast is ideal with the windows of the dining room looking onto the North Face of the Eiger....Awesome!

Room Tip: There were no doubles left but both times we've paid the extra to get the 4 bed room to ourselve...

Staff were extremely helpful throughout the planning and the visit allowing us to fit the group into rooms with a degree of flexibility. As a hostel it worked extremely well, breakfast was sufficient and we took a group evening meal which was excellent quality and quantity and served efficiently. Location next to Grund station is a big plus.

Room Tip: Multiple rooms of up to 6 people but in top and bottom bunks.
