The Mountain Hostel is a cozy, quaint, hostel just a short train ride from the base of Jungfrau Glacier. Words wouldn’t do this place justice. The fresh, crisp air, the amazing views just outside your window cannot be defined with my keyboard. It must be felt. Only here for 2 short nights, I shared a 3 bed dorm with some...

We stayed two nights in a 6 person dorm. The hostel is clean and comfortable. It's about a 10-15 min walk down the hill from the main center/train station in Grindelwald. Breakfast is included which makes the already affordable price even more attractive for this area. If you are a traveler on a budget, consider staying at the hostel. It's...

Nice Hostel, located in a very central place, clean & down to earth. Price-performance, especially for groups (overnight stay & breakfast package) is great. Can be quite noisy, but still a good place to stay for reasonable money.

I was given an upper bunk and surprisingly, there was no ladder to climb up. So i requested to change and they did. Another issue i faced: on paying with an US credit card, the receptionist must have pressed the option -- "pay in USD ...."; rather than "pay in CHF ...";- CHF was the second option while paying in...

The Mountain Hostel in Grindelwald was a great hostel find - reasonably priced with a delicious breakfast included. We had a private room which was very nice and clean. The receptionist was very pleasant and got us checked in quickly. After a long day of hiking, it was pleasant to end up here and enjoy a nice dinner at the...

Spent 3 nights with my mates at the hotel. Everything was good. Probably the best accommodation we had throughout our 32 days journey in Italy and Switzerland. Free and fast wifi, free and good breakfast, good reception service (very informative and patient), price was valuable (p.s. free bus), location was good (bus stops and train station nearby, 10mins walk to...

Te location is absolutely unbelievable - although you're actually not terribly close to any trail heads, you can't complain about the extra walking if you're there to hike. My one complaint is that the directions they gave assume you arrive from the closer train station, which is not the "main" train station for the village. The kitchen, although well equipped,...
