Helpful staff, breakfasts, location, extra amenities
Noise from hallways coming into rooms, communal shower curtians that stick to you. :) very basic dorm room accomodations... clean... but maybe to basic for some. We were pleasantly surprised.
Private room Breakfast Kitchen facilities
One toilet for 20+ travellers One shower for 20+ travellers Too many people cued up to do washing Noisy due to squeaking doors on rooms
Not too bad.
Checking in time is 15:00,it's too late for me,so I couldn't take the bus for free when I backed from cable car station.The wi-fi is very weak in the bedroom.
It is a hostel, but the breakfast was good.
We had written agreement between the hostel and booking.com based on information written on their website, one adult and the addition of a child for 10% more. This was prearranged and agreed in writing. When we arrived they said that they didn't care what was written on the booking, that the price was 10% discount for the child, not 10% for the child (Increasing the price from 10% to 90% of the adult), thus pushing up the priced to almost hotel prices. They have since changed the details on booking.com to 10% discount. But I booked based on the old information that was listed and agreed in writing. In the end I had to pay, as I had no idea if I could get a hotel in the area or how long it would take, given it was evening already. I guess that if you just make a simple booking then it will ok, but don't make additional requests on booking.com as the hostel will not respect these when you arrive. Booking.com has been marvellous in sorting this out after we arrived back, but frustrating for them and us. To get out of refunding the difference when they were challenged by booking.com, the hostel even invented another child, saying that I had arrived with an extra child that wasn't on the booking... really?
Very nice view of Eiger in downtown Grindelwald. And and the other guys of the staff are very kind and nice
We stayed in the low season so it was nice and quiet. Good cooking facilites.
The fridge in the kitchen was a bit small (even in the low season) so we struggled to fit our food in.
The location is right in down town. Less than 5 minutes walking to the train station. The breakfast was fantastic. They also provide free lockers which I found very convenient for arriving before check-in or touring after check-out.
My husband and I had a small room. The room door is semi-transparent, so I felt a bit awkward. The room felt a bit cramped with two beds. We later found out we could put one bed on top of the other (as bunker beds) and sleep on the bottom one (it's big enough) to save room.
the room is good and clean, kitchen is good, we cooked there. They have hot water for shower.
the shower room only have shower curtain , the curtain will always stick you when you are bathing. very uncomfortable
Kitchen. Bathroom. Outdoor seating.
Absence of staff for one night we were there. Our car was in their parking lot with no way to get it out.
Great location, decent breakfast, easy check-in, reasonably quiet at night/not too many partiers
We thought we had left something behind in our room. We called the next day and it took calling/emailing almost everyday for 3 days before the staff finally got back to us. That was pretty annoying. The radiator was also broken in our room, and the hostel could only offer one space heater. It ended up being OK but it was cold in our room for a long time.
+ location + friendly staff
- only one toilet and one shower to be shared with several rooms
Excellent location, lot of space in the dorms, comfortable beds, very clean bed sheets, lockers free of charge.
Good friendly staff good location
Many rooms available Can provide parking Lockers available inside or outside the rooms for staying or leaving the luggage for the time of arrival/departure
some of the tapes are broken in the bathroom in Lodge 2... and it can be made better.... Personally, I don't like that simple and basic shared bathroom..
difficult to the upper bed, mixed room not good, plug not enough, breakfast not enough, a little far away from the railway station, not recommend if you want to have a good rest
Atmosphere was great and staff very friendly. Place is situated right in the centere of Grindelwald, perfect location! There is a kitchen with possibility to cook, place to wash laundry, pool table, place to hang out or just relax a bit, nice also for families. They even served breakfast from 3 o'clock in the morning because of the Eiger UltraTrail!
I was participationg on Eiger Ultra trail, some people woke up at 3 o'clock in the morning and were very noisy! Trail is not a reason to be selfish. I would recommend next time to put in one common room people from 101km trail and in other 51km trail participants. I have really pitied other tourists, which haven't got any sleep because of trailers...
Quite close to everywhere. Have discount tickets, including a train ticket to Jungfraujoch.
Stayed at the Lodge 1. After 8:00 pm, there is only one toilet and shower for maximum 30 people. Obviously, we need more.
