Stayed there with a mountaineering group cause we climbed Moench next day. Staff was friendly and the hostel well organized. Unfortunately the reception will close already at 9 pm if you wanna have a beer in the evening you have to walk 20 minutes to Grindelwald center. Generally I have to admit that I think chf 35 for a mattress...

Hi Fe L Thank you for your feedback Our reception we must close at 9 pm, just so we can offer them for Swiss prices a favorable overnight stay. Too bad that they have our beer machine in the house and the coldest beer from Grindelwald in the restaurant 2 minute walk not found. We must mark this better

Friendly & helpful staff. Efficient operation means lower cost. Breakfast was tasty and well attended with plenty of space even when a large group was there. Local bus is free with stay but times weren't always convenient for us and not so easy to figure out but main train station (to Interlaken) is only 15 minutes walk. The Jungfrau cog...

- we liked the place and what they offer - but the staff could be more customer friendly, we had to ask twice to get the shoe dryer in the shoe room on, because our hiking shoes are so wet - and why don't get the suggestion for half board at the restaurant eiger selfness ? it was excellent there!...

hie jasu69 Thanks for your review, our boot dryer is automatically adjusted for the night, if you sleep on since :) so we can save electricity and guarantee a favorable room rate for guests. We are sorry that we had a stampede of guests in the morning, they all came to the same time. We will improve.

Good location, perfect for hikers, the mountain railways and hiker roads are very close to the hostel. Rich and tasty breakfast, but it could start a bit earlier (before 7:30). Nice staff, well-equipped kitchen for cooking or heating foods.

It was alright, not the greatest of hostels, as there was problems with the showers going from extreme heat to cold in a matter of seconds and then randomly turning off. The room got really humid and at one point we thought about opening the window but with the light snow we couldn't. I would recommend for a short stay....

We were appreciative of the lady at reception who helped us with our plans for hiking in the region. She didn't come across as particularly friendly but she was polite and helpful - maybe just tired. Reception is unstaffed for large chunks of the day - something to be aware of. The free breakfast is excellent and although there are...
