    I liked almost nothing! It might be good to go there during the ski days. Otherwise, during summer for 44 CHF a shared bedroom with bathrooms/showers in another floor is not a good choice!

  • Family with children

    The stuff (two lovely and extremely helpful girls) was excellent. Parking, Wifi, very good breakfast. excellent atmosphere; common bathrom and toilets were always clean

    small rom for 5 people

    There is sign when you go out train station, you can easily follow to the hostel.

    The sheet and cover is not included in the price. And even you need to pay for the locker inside room.

    Great location. This hostel is comfortable and provides more than just a good night's sleep. We had a double bunk for our family in our own room. The communal areas were really comfortable and the breakfast great.

    The staff were friendly and informative and the hostel was clean and well maintained. Superb location and the perfect start to each day was having breakfast looking up at the Eiger North Face.

    Not in Grindelwald main station, but at Grund.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    The staff is always friendly, the hostel is conveniently located close to the train station and a chair lift, there's usually parking available, and breakfast is absolutely fine. My children love to come here.

    This was an unlikely facility in an expensive Grindelwald but offered good rooms and a good breakfast. The majority of customers were young or in parties but the place was quiet after 10.00 pm. No evening meal was available but the breakfast was good. For us it was a good location as we were were walking across the Bernese Oberland.

    For the money there can be few complaints. The lack of evening meals was a miss but there is a restaurant 5 minutes away which was expensive but served excellent meals (and beer!)

    The Hostel Manager or Care taker (however you call), that women was courteous and responds well to the guests . The rooms were neat, clean and well maintained. The breakfast served was good and in over all, it's worth the value of money we spend for our stay.

    The Check-in could have been more flexible (may be starting at 11 am or 12 noon at least) instead of 4 pm to 9 pm

    We stayed at mountain hostel for 2 nights. Everything was fine. The breakfast was very good (nice local breads and yoghurt).

    The hostel seemed very understaffed. One lady seemed to be doing just about everything. Check-in is not til four, but that's not too much of a problem as you can walk around the town. Although the location is good, it is in Grindelwald Grund. This means you have a 20 minute uphill walk to get to the main town, where the supermarkets and restaurants are. The room was fine. However, the shower drained slowly and you end up standing in a deep puddle! Also, no kitchen. Only a BBQ.

    It is a good choice as a youth hostel,the location is great,it is just two minutes' walking to the railway station.and also a wonderful view around.the breakfast is very good and full of all kind!

    it is different from the introduction on the Internet.We booked a double room but we were provided a room of six beds.and we have to pay extra money for our blanket.....
