Score from 151 reviews Excellent 8.8/10
Clean bathroom and bed. The water of the shower is nice and warm. Is close to a location where you can have a great view of Zermatt and Matterhorn. Comfy bed.
No kitchen is available. A 10+ min (and uphill) walk from the train station. Wifi doesn't work in the rooms. I stayed at a dorm at the top floor and banged my head on the ceiling a couple of times...
The attention and friendliness of staff in solving problems.
The selfishness of some guests that disrupts sleep and rest of the roommates.
Quality of rooms and bathrooms.
No elevator. Location is bit far from the centre.
Everything was wonderful
Excellent breakfast. Room was small but beds were comfortable. Small shower but clean. Room Price could have been a little lower, But compared to others available in the area this price was good for our last minute booking. It was a 10 minute taxi ride from station. $30 euros for the night taxi at 11 pm was a little expensive.
Staff were very friendly Hostel was clean
A bit soulless
We stayed in a twin room. Had basin, and beds made already. The shower was good, and breakfast was good enough.
The location. It's a trek from the train station, and upwards. But if you're young, fit, and going mountain climbing anyway, it shouldn't matter.
Barbara was very helpful with everything The hostel is very clean, dinner served is very good
Clean facilities, quiet environment, breakfast was quite good
Shower was a little wonky. The climb up the long flight of stairs and a steep slope is way more horrendous than we expected...do try to travel light, heavy luggages are a headache if you are staying here.
We have a nice view of Matterhorn in our room. Staff are very helpful. Delicious buffet breakfast. Place is clean.
There is no lift so elderly people might find it difficult for them to get to their rooms if they stayed on the top floor. No cooking facilities except a microwave and kettle.
clean, nice canteen with microwave oven and water boiler
wifi available only at public space, 6-people ensuite room is just barely enough for 5 ppl
Perfect view on Matterhorn Variety and fresh breakfast (for a youth hostel) Friendly staff
Nothing (but with heavy luggage I recommend taking a taxi from train station as it is a bit of a distance uphill)
Friendly staff, a catering area on the first floor.
too many steps to go to the hostel. No elevator in the building, Wifi is only available in the reception hall. There is no kitchen for guests using
Super friendly staff. Decent breakfast. Cheap laundry and great view of the matterhorn
Wifi only available in common areas, and even then would cut out a lot. It's a bit of a hike from the train station and I could not find this info on the site before I booked
The room no wifi.
The content of dinner is not so match with the menu & isn't so value as the price
Very nice and helpful receptionist. Tasty breakfast, clean room and shower.
Noisy neighbour (but I don't blame hostel).
Location:Many people complained about the farness & hardness to reach the hotel, but I think it's just ok. I'm a slim female with a weigh of 45KG approx. I was carrying a knapsack(10-13kg?) and a draw-bar suitcase with me when I arrived Zermatt. A little bit hard for me to get there anyway, but it's still within my bear scope. Not too bad, everything's depend on what you think when face it. Receptionist: very kind, good. Breakfast : good wifi: good, in public area Room: Because of something misunderstood by the hotel or by myself, I was arranged into a mix-room although there's still available bed in the female room that night, but I just accepted the reality because it's the off-time for the reception when I found such situation happened to me. I just told myself:never mind, I'm a Buddhist, won't care about the external things, just sleep and have my dream.--but this lovely misunderstanding led me a wonderful experience the next day because if I had not been put in the wrong room, I wouldn't know where to go next morning when I found the weather's too bad. A young man from Korea in the same room told me the route they had been finished that early morning and I just decided to follow their route to have a hiking. Great! - although I didn't go up to Matterhorn that day, although it was windy and rainy that day.
super clean and nice place. The breakfast is fantastic haha. But kinda difficult to find the place.
Their reception very rude, difficult searching for this Hostel also too far from train station.
the place is slightly above the other hostel hence nice view and easier access to other view point if you walk around. for train/cable car will be slightly away from the hostel.
was unlucky to paired with someone who snores (and moves) really badly. literally repeated every 20 seconds hence couldnt sleep for 2 nights.
it's very clean and comfortable
it has no elevator even it has 5 stories. it was hard to lift up my lugguage by stairs
Great views, comfortable and clean. Staff at the desk were friendly and accommodating and made up for the cafeteria staff.
The staff at the cafeteria were rude. Also, while the dinner is a perfectly fine buffet (and the price for that is reasonable), it should not be advertised as a 4 course dinner!
great value for money...
