Fair price and very friendly and uncomplicated staff. The rooms were clean and suitable for groups. The hostel is directly located at the cable car. Thank you very much for this amazing snowsport camp!

Fair Price, warm welcome, very frendly and helpful staff, Clean rooms, tiolets and showers. CLose to the gondola lift Männlichen and train station Grund. Over all a very nice stay. Breakfast could offer something more but enough to get well-fed.

It was hostel with B&B. Most economic and friendly for hikers and travelers in budget. Stay is pleasant, cots were neat and tidy. Common bathrooms are neat and cleaned frequently. People who dont prefer luxury as their requirement would love this place. Ideal location as it faces the alps and have a picturesque view from the hostel. I recommend this...

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...
