I had a great time in Grindelwald; fantastic hiking and the Mountain Hostel was terrific. Rooms were clean and equipped with lockers. Good shared showers and bathroom facilities. Outdoor kitchen was great: hot plate, sink, fridge, and all kinds of plates/cups/pots/pans/utensils makes it easy to buy food at the Coop in town and cook with the other guests -- a nice way to meet people. The hostel's right on the river with a superb view of the Eiger Nordwand.
Breakfast at the Mountain Hostel is well worth it. You get all kinds of bread, cheese, cereal, fruit, juice, coffee, etc. There is an internet computer but it's a bit on the expensive side and you can't upload pictures. If you don't like walking up and down hills you should make sure to get off at the GRUND train station (but hey, this is hilly hiking country, walking is good exercise).
The real selling point here is the staff. I had an unfortunate mishap where I lost a significant personal item on an extended venture away from the hostel, and the owner himself went well above and beyond the call of duty helping me get it back. Everyone in the reception area was super helpful and I had no trouble here despite my two-word German vocabulary.
Danke Mountain Hostel!
