Hostel Grindelwald

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

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.

I would suggest to have "no smoking" on the premisses and not only inside the building. I understand that employees would not like that, but it would make thnigs more clear. And nicer to sit on the terrace without people smoking. So also no smoking outside or in the window. I had some allergies, and the chef was able to adjust. Perhaps give more info on ingredients and possibilities for adjastments. Make advertisement on the ice creams. My children had to ask for it.

zentrale Lage des Hauses, der Neubau war sehr schön, alle Zimmer hatten Blick auf die Eigernordwand. die regionalen Produkte haben sehr gut geschmeckt, das Brot hat sehr gute Qualität. das Personal hatte viel zutun, die Herren waren dennoch immer freundlich und ansprechbar, wenn man auch Fragen über das Haus hinaus hatte, z.B. Aktivitäten.
