Welcome to our hostel

Did you know that St. Gallen Youth Hostel is just 11 kilometres or 15 minutes by train from Lake Constance? The historic old town and the trade-fair complex are also just a few minutes away on foot. Surrounded by a peaceful green belt, the youth hostel offers a fascinating view over the roofs of the town thanks to its hillside location. Close by are many walking and hiking routes as well as some of Switzerland's most beautiful natural swimming pools, the "Dreilinden" nature-garden pools.

Guests from all over the world feel at home in our youth hostel. We attach especial importance to being familyfriendly. There are separately situated family rooms with shower/WC on the quiet family floor and a playroom for our youngest guests.

Der Empfang war kühl, Fragen wurden nicht gern erklärt. Die JH an sich aber sehr gut. Die Ausstattung typisch, die Zimmer und sanitären Anlagen sehr sauber. Das Frühstück war lecker und es war alles da. Wir würden hier auch wieder übernachten, hoffen aber, dass der Mitarbeiter etwas mehr Freundlichkeit lernt und das Parkplatzsytem optimiert wird. Damit mehr Antwort als "weiß nich" kommt.

Friendly staff allowed us to leave our extra gear overnight while we stayed at Ebenalp. Much appreciated!

Sehr freundliches Personal, Frühstück ist ok, Schließfächer sind auf dem Flur - na gut. Die Lage der Herberge ist gut: Schön ruhig gelegen mit Ausblick über die Stadt und dennoch in Laufdistanz zur Altstadt.
