Davos Hostel

Hostel Davos

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Everybody knows that the air up here is pure and invigorating. And lying on one of the terraces, you have got nothing but a canopy of big blue sky above you. What was formerly a sanatorium is today the Youthpalace. Even the place itself at 1,600 metres above sea level is inspiration for organising your own World Leisure-Time Forum. So, what are you waiting for? Come to Davos for that ultimate holiday feeling.

All those lazy-bones among us suffering from listlessness and boredom will find a quick cure up here, where in bygone times consumptives came in search of treatment. In a veritable palace, grandly situated high above Davos and with an aspect far superior to the commonplace. The sanatorium was aptly named "Beau-Site" when it was built in 1913, during the height of the Belle Époque and the golden age of genteel tourism in Davos. In 1927, the building was extended to become the Albula spa hotel.

Nowadays, the Youthpalace is assuredly the most exclusive Swiss Youth Hostel, located only a few minutes on foot from the Parsennbahn funicular (accessing vast skiing and hiking areas), and also directly in front of the ski runs and high-altitude hiking trail. The vistas of Davos, Lake Davos and the mountain landscapes which open up from each of the hostel's sun terraces are absolutely spectacular, and the prospects for an unforgettable stay are equally splendid.

Ok as everyone warned me it is a very long a steep slope up to the hotel, especially when you carry you luggage! Advantage: I lived in a 6bed female dorm and we had a separate bathroom. Breakfast included in price (and a well sized one) Disadvantage: This is the first time I stayed in a Swiss youth hostel. I do not know if it is standard but I really missed a kitchen to use. There was a small refrigerator, very small, and one microwave that's all.

A very well run youth hostel. The Davos card was especially good value as this means we got to travel up the mountains and hiked down (vital for the old knees!)

A very nice place but very hard to walk so far up the big hill with luggage and skis. No bus service. The hostel should use their van to provide a shuttle at the end of the ski day for people with to reserve it and pay a few francs for the service. That would be a huge help.
