Best of the Alps - have fun in the Grindelwald youth hostel! It is undoubtedly one of the most comfortable hostels in the Alps. The welcoming cosiness has remained, but modern bedrooms and practical facilities for groups and families have now been added. More than ever before, the youth hostel is a rendezvous for sport fans and young guests from all over the world who want to experience the impressive world of the mountains around Grindelwald.

The youth hostel is fully equipped to accommodate different guests together. The same applies for individual travellers from all over the world. Forget the venerable youth hostel sleeping bag; with us you dream under a duvet. You stay either in the rustic main building or in the modern, functional annexe. The main house still bears all the hallmarks of the original Grindelwald construction method. The room with the fireplace and the various recreation rooms radiate that cosiness which is so typical of houses in this area.

Grindelwald YH IS one of the very best I have ever stayed in. The location is sensational with views over to the Eiger North Face. Grindelwald is an expensive place but the YH puts it within the reach of those of us of modest means. The facilities are very good both in the main house and the new building combining an authentic feel with modern standards.

Budget meal tip

one of the supermarkets at Grindelwald, but beware that the hostel only provides a microwave, no kitchen!
