    Amazing view of the valley! Lovely old building!

    No kitchen to prepare own food and the main building did not have hot water the the shower.

    Staff can speak very good English. facilities towards bathroom and shower are clean.. the dormitary is really good and comfortable, and I meet some really good friends from Taiwan, Switherland, Germany that help me a lot.. nice experience!

    Only in reception area, I could get wifi.. not too many electric plugs.

    Excellent breakfast.

    Our fullbooking was not registered by Booked.net on the Youth Hostels website.

    Very friendly staff. Very clean common toilets and showers. Was worried about some bedbug reviews lately but there were none in our room. Included in the price is free In-town bus service. Bus service is limited 6:30am to 7:30pm or so. Taxi costs 18 swiss francs and 2 franc tip was recieved well. Even if you figure in taxi service to and from hotel multiple times this hostel is outstanding value for money. Infact the location makes up for magical views.

    None. Only take a cab after a dinner down in the town. Otherwise it is a steep climb.

    The view was amazing and it was surprisingly cheap for switzerland.

    Everything cost extra money, there was no kitchen for guests, and the walk to town was a pain.

    Staff were so friendly and helpful. Rooms were very clean and great size for a family of four. Breakfast which was included was superb. Home made bircher musli with fresh honey and great coffee. Highly recommended to any age or group.

    Very clean, good food, incredible view of mountains.

    Hard to find in the dark, even using gps. There were apparently signs, but we missed them all. If you are on the winding road going up, you are getting close - just keep going.

    Located in the mountain and close to nature. Very clean. Friendly and helpful staff.

    Check in only after 4pm which is very late.

    Not only too far from the train station, but too difficult to get there by walking since the way is too steep.

  • Single
    7.8

    Hotel staff extremely helpfull and friendly Clean rooms and facilities Nice breakfast and the opportunity to take away a lunch package Proximity to railway station is a plus Great view from the balcony

    Only Wi-Fi in main building, and not in the room, but that's only a minor issue
