Location is far but near to Matterhorn Ski lifts
The location close to the center of Zermatt. In a very nice village.
It was not very clean.
The location and wi-fi.
Everything else. This is a poor accommodation even considering the hostel standards. This is a old house somehow converted into a pub and a hostel. Our twin private basement room was tiny and almost all the space was occupied by the twin beds and the drawers. There was no space or equipment to hang clothes. You need to dump them in the drawers. The only tiny window above did not have curtains. The quilts provided by the hostel was itch and may not be clean. The toiltes were just beside our room as it is in basement only. In the basin only dish washing liquid is there. The toilets were clean though but it depends on the people staying in the hostel as the staffs probably clean them only once. The showers were pathetic. Water was clogged in front of the shower cabin. The showers did not have any place to keep soap or shower gel. I took a shower raly morning and it took almost 5 minutes for the hot water to come. The doors were almost transparent with a dirty curtain between the door and cloth hanging area. The space was tiny and the door did not have any locking system from inside. They allowed me to check out very early by throwing the key through the space below closed recepion door. The only good thing about this hostel is the price which is cheap in Zermatt standard but costly with respect to rest of the world.
Location and friendly staff
We were put at right at the top (very stuffy) and it was boiling hot. The blanket wasn't great.
If you are a budget traveler, Matterhorn Hostel is definitely the choice. There are a lot of shower rooms and toilets available. The room is clean too .
The temperature of the hot water in shower room cannot be adjustable, so the water turn out to be not hot at all. The room for three person is not spacious so is not convenient for moving around.
Ideal for value for money trip to Zermatt.
Dont get placed in basement next to stairs. It was horrendous! So much noise from the spiral wooden steps going up the side of the room. The noise continued until past 3am! Place looked as though it could have done with a good clean too.
The staff is really nice and humor; The window view is wonderful; I thought the location is a bit hard to find but it is actually good.
bed & blanket are not properly clean, small leisure room and bath rooms
I was there to see the town and go up into the mountains. The location was perfect - half way between the train station and the station for the Bergbahn to the Matterhorn. And places to eat or drink just 5-10 minutes away. Simple but adequate hostel bunks.
There was no hot water when taking shower. It was too cold in the night with a thib blanket.
There was no hot water for taking shower.
Lower price. Good location. Helpful staff. It is a basic place for staying one night.
No one in the reception if it is not the check-in or check-out time.
Not clean and convenient. Bathroom has no lock.
location super good, just in front of Matterhorn. The staff very nice. The price is super good
The heater works awfully, was frozen out in the night.
Unfriendly, cramped and noisy
