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.

The setting of this hostel, nestled between the alps is unbelievable. The Alpine construction of the original building is lovely and most rooms have balconies with spectacular views.

The best youth hostel ever! My family (2 adults, 2kids) really loved the place. The view from the balcony was amazing. The beakfast was delicious. We stayed for three nights. We had our dinner at the hostel one night. It was reasonable and good! We would love to go back again. From the station, it is not far(10mins) but it is uphill. We walked up the hill with our suitcases. It was hard with children! I recommend to take the town bus if possible. The last bus from the station was 4:30pm.

1. The female staff was very unkind. 2. The female staff didn't give the coin back when the laundry didin't work. 3. I made a reservation for a 4-bed room. The female staff required all 4 members' membership and gave us no discount for membership, although I showed her my membershp card. 4. The food was good. 5. no elevator 6. not easy to access the hostel from railway station
