Good Stay
I’m a 59 year old solo traveler that stayed here September 20-23, 2023. I basically had just one roomie that was super considerate and nice for the two nights. Bed was very comfortable and things were quiet during my stay. Breakfast was good and kept me solid throughout the day. Has great views from my balcony. All-in-all, I pleasant stay and I highly recommend.

Amazing town
Grindelwald is such a pretty town so this hostel is the most cost effective to stay in grindelwald. Clean and good selection at breakfast. Only disadvantage is that it is located high up on the hill so it’s a steep treck up walking but bus also goes there every half an hour

Not sure if this is informed to guest.. but would be good information to share: - last bus from station - is a very very challenging steep uphill walk to the accommodation, esp. with luggage!
