Simple and cheap accommodation in a modern and spacious building. We stayed for 2 nights in a room with two beds, a shower and a toilet. Quiet location, just 5 mins walk from Saanen center and train station. Breakfast is a self service buffet. Ideally suited for families and small children.

The new Gstaad Saanenland (Youth) Hostel is a gem: The building is a modern interpretation of a Chalet and blends in well with the neighbouring hotel Spitzhorn. Welcome by the Staff is friendly. The common area is generously lit and uncramped. There is a lift to all floors. We occupied a double room with own shower and toilet. The colouring... More

This stands out for its design and choice of materials - contemporary and functional while fully in keeping with alpine profiles and construction. The hostel had reopened after complete rebuild just before we were there. The ground floor has large, stylish wooden tables and lounge spaces, with a deck at the front catching the sun and looking to the mountains.... More

This is a great place to stay if you're looking for a more cost-effective option in a quiet Swiss village. Everything was well taken care of, beautiful, and quiet. Free WiFi. Just keep in mind that they do not include a breakfast -- you have to pay extra! Definitely recommended!

My wife and I stayed with our four children at the Youth Hostel in Saanen-Gstaad. Rooms were clean, the hotel was quite, and the staff were very helpful. A good alternative to more expensive inns in the area.
