Looking for a low cost accommodation in Grindelwald is frustrating. I was pleasantly surprised by this hostel. Beds are moderately comfortable, good breakfast. Location is good to access Mannlichen bann up the mountain but it is a bit of a hike (or bus ride) up a steep hill.

Mountain Hostel is conveniently located next to a bus stop of Grindelwald Grund and the gondolas to the top of Männlichen. The rooms are clean, the showers are spacious, private and clean as well. Also the breakfast was simple, but tasty and came with plenty of choice (types of bread, cereal, fruit, cheeses, meat or sweet spreads). I would recommend...

Came here in a group and stayed for two days. It's just less than 5 minutes walk to the Grindewald Grund train station. Rooms are really clean, showers and bathrooms are shared. We had our lovely breakfast here with variable choices of cheese, bread, cereal and so on. Other than that we enjoyed our bonfire and barbecue session during our...

I stayed at this hostel for 3 days last year. Upon arriving at the hostel, check in went smooth. The hostel is family driven and the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms had multiple beds, with a wash basin but no toilet as expected. Central showers and toilets are clean. If i remember correctly, internet is free but you...

The staff speak good English and are very friendly. The whole Hostel is very clean and looked after, you can see there is some pride taken in the standard. Breakfast is a standard Swiss cold buffet including a selection in the likes of cereal, Muesli, Bread, Cheese,Luncheon Ham, Coffee etc, etc. I was very happy with what was offered. Offering...

This hostel might well be the only soultion to fully enjoy the Swiss Alps at a reasonable price. Located just next to the Männlichen lift, it is warm and cozy, and offers accommodation for every occasion: 6-people hostel rooms for lone travellers or friends, double or quadruple rooms for couples and families. The toilets and showers are shared, but clean...

Free wifi! Lovely communal area. Clean linen and comfortable beds ( we were in a quad). The showers do this water saving thing and switch off every few minutes, and the lights too. But the hostel is close to the train station so going to jangfrau is easy. The bus to town is free. The breakfast was just ok.

Great hostel, great view, great services, clean, refrigerator, grill, microwave etc for guests. Very helpful staff, good breakfasts. However, could be very noisy at night, though stopped by about 11 pm. Also, quite expensive for a hostel - however, I think that may be switzerland rather than the hostel itself - and definitely great service on every count - couldn't...

I have stayed here twice before and I can't fault it. Its perfectly situated beside the train station or the local bus gets you into town in 5mins. Hotels in the area are very pricey so it was great to come across this hostel as the prices make Grindelwald an affordable short break, I've just booked my third trip there....

Staff were extremely helpful throughout the planning and the visit allowing us to fit the group into rooms with a degree of flexibility. As a hostel it worked extremely well, breakfast was sufficient and we took a group evening meal which was excellent quality and quantity and served efficiently. Location next to Grund station is a big plus.
