Hostel Zermatt

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

The world-famous Matterhorn, lovingly called “Horu” by locals, can be seen directly from Zermatt Youth Hostel. Every day of the year, the Youth Hostel offers a charming alternative for all those guests for whom a luxurious hotel room is not necessary to enjoy the Zermatt mountains.

Backpackers from all over the world, as well as families, groups and young-at-heart senior citizens receive a very warm welcome in a cosy atmosphere the whole year round. Whether they choose the inexpensive variant in a dormitory or a double room with a separate shower and WC, breakfast in the dining room with a view of the Matterhorn is always included in the price.

Once you arrive in Zermatt, it’s not far to the Youth Hostel. It is located between the town centre and the station of Klein Matterhorn Railways. It is a 15-minute walk from the railway station to the Youth Hostel. A slightly more comfortable journey by electric bus or taxi is also possible. (Zermatt is car-free).

Great from start to finish. Steep hill to find from train station but it was good exercise ! Very friendly informative staff and really enjoyed the view of the Matterhorn. Really great little town, highly recommend "The North Wall" for superb dining and atmosphere
