Hostelz.com's Review
Jugendherberge Pontresina is an HI Hostel which offers the usual minimum HI standards. Since it's located in Switzerland, you can imagine the top quality of its services. Reception personnel are very nice and they speak several languages. They are also always available and at your disposal to inform about hiking and skiing activities, train schedules, and all tourist information in general.

The hostel is conveniently located right beside Pontresina railroad station. This hostel is an HI option instead of the more expensive St. Moritz, the famous Swiss ski winter station. St. Moritz is a short, half-hour train trip away and Pontresina is a great location for summertime hiking in the mountains, which are lovely at this time of year. This is a very silent, calm mountain hostel.

Though the hostel is a pretty big, three-story building, rooms are not so spacious. However, the showers are conveniently separate from the WCs. Rates are a little higher than most hostels, but rich breakfast and dinner are included (soup, salad, main course, and dessert). It's served between 6:30 and 10 p.m. Breakfast is self-served from a large buffet.

The hostel provides a luggage room and also has a TV room, a room with toys for children, and a ski equipment room. There is no kitchen available for cooking. Linen is included in price but towels are not furnished. There is a free parking lot and discount tickets are available for the neighboring swimming pool.

The operating hours are strictly respected and if you check out after 9:30 a.m., you'll have to pay an extra fee. Reception is open 7:30 to10 a.m., 4 to 6:30, and 7:30 to 9 p.m. The hostel closes at 11 p.m., but the door opening code is furnished.
