We made a reservation for 8 people in this place for a Saturday night, before we went on our trip to Iglu Dorf. Though each room accommodated 6 persons , on request, the people in-charge have made arrangements for 2 additional mattresses. The hosts were friendly and had a constant smile on their faces. The rooms were clean, and fresh. Do not go by the outer "older" appearance, as the inside is renovated and modern. There is a luggage/shoe room at the entrance where people can leave their soiled shoes or Ski/Snow gear. The entrance door is free to use until 9 PM, after which to open it, you would need the key card of your room.
The mess hall is big enough to accommodate more than 60 people. The breakfast though with limited options was tasty and healthy enough to kick-start your day. The dinner was nice. There are guide books in the dining hall, in English and German, with loads of useful information to plan our trip better. We were also provided with a Guest card, using which you are entitled to discounts at most stores (incl. discounts on rental of Ski/Snow gear) in and around Engleberg and also to the Cable cars to Titlis/Brunni.
Sunmatt is the nearby bus stop. It is just a stone's throw away from the hostel. There are shuttles running around the town, which are free to use. Line 7 (Blue Line in the map), either from Engelberg Bahnoff or the Titlis Cable Station, goes to Sunmatt. If you are looking for a comfortable and affordable place to rest for the night, this is the preferable place.
If you are visiting Engleberg, don't miss One of the world's largest Organ in the Engelberg Monastery.
