Scuol Youth Hostel
Reviewed September 6, 2013

I've just stayed at this youth hostel for a third time and am very impressed at how consistently good it is.

The staff are friendly and very knowledgeable, and go out of their way to be helpful.

The rooms are modern and spotlessly clean, with comfortable, sturdy beds. There are sufficient showers on each floor to cater for all guests. (There are family and twin rooms available with private bathroom and toilet).

As well as the common area on the ground floor there is a very comfortable lounge on the second floor with large picture windows. This is a lovely place to sit and read when the weather isn't too good. The restaurant is large, with plenty of seating, and serves excellent buffet breakfasts and evening meals.

There is free WiFi throughout the hotel, and an internet-enabled computer available for guests without their own equipment (a small fee applies).

Above all, the atmosphere at this hostel is fantastic, with guests of all ages and nationalities.

Very highly recommended indeed.

I visited this wonderful hostel and I have to say that it is really a very nice place. Rooms clear, with a comfortable bathroom inside. Very nice furniture, and a very professional personnel. Even the self service dinner was good, with wines at an interesting price. I suggest to you all to consider it.

We would not normally have even considered staying in a youth hostel but, in view of our love of Switzerland and the high cost of accommodation in that country, we thought we'd give it a try. And we're so glad we did. The Scuol hostel exceeded our expectations, and was easily as good as many of the small, family-run hotels we've stayed in on previous holidays at a fraction of the price.

The location of the hostel is perfect, just moments from Scuol-Tarasp railway station and bus station. There is a small car park just behind the hostel which is free for guests. The centre of the village is a 10-15 minute walk away but there is little of interest there other than a Co-op supermarket and so that was no problem. (There is a small shop at the railway station that sells newspapers, drinks, snacks and postage stamps). We had a twin room with private bathroom and toilet, which was very cosy and comfortable with great views. The rate we paid included an excellent breakfast and a three-course dinner, and was amazing value for money. The staff were, without exception, friendly and extremely helpful throughout our stay, and we were made to feel very welcome indeed.

There is a comfortable seating area with open fire on the ground floor, and free wi-fi throughout. Even though the hostel was full, with many families and school groups, there was no noise at night and we slept very well.

I really can't recommend this hostel highly enough. We will definitely stay there again next time we're in the area.

Room Tip: Rooms with private bathroom are well worth the additional cost.

Big modern youth hostels, next to the main station and only 15-20 minutes far from the Bogn Engiadina by foot.
The staff is nice and Claudio is glad to speak french with you.
The lounge (stüva) smells good of wood.

An other point (valid also for the other youth hostels of the Graubünden) : a lot of families with kids

Room Tip: The lounge is on the 2nd floor. i can imagine that during the winter, people meet here. So it should...

We are staying at the youth hostel in Scuol this week. It is new, clean, friendly and directly across the road from the big gondola up to ski school. It seems to be only families staying here and I can understand why. We have a private room for 4 with our own shower (new bunk beds, small wooden table, good cupboards) and including breakfast and dinner pay 70 Francs per person per night. Unbeatable value! The lounge area has a nice fireplace and they have a big tv room in the basement with ping pong and table football. The ski room is huge and well thought out. They even have a dehumidifier going all the time to dry out the boots. Nice atmosphere, my kids and even my husband like it. We came by train from Bern and it was easy, sending the bags and skis ahead with the SBB. You absolutely don't need a car here. The people here are very friendly and have a good sense of humor which I really appreciate.
