nice place, good atmosphere. also nice with children. i just love the area.
I stayed there in August 2001. Odd place! They only speak German, no English or French. It's probably the only affordable place in this exclusive area close to Gstaad. It has very nice food. You will be asked to clean your table (you must do it). You can rent bikes and ride around as I did. The rooms and bathrooms were okay. It has peaceful mountainous surroundings.
The newly built house has many rooms with 4 beds and a well-equipped children’s playroom and play area, making it the ideal holiday destination for families with children where kids can let off steam to their heart’s content. In addition, solo travellers, sports enthusiasts and culture lovers will equally appreciate the excellent infrastructure with its new range of rooms with 2 to 6 beds.
Both the cosy lounge and the large dining area, the centrepieces of the youth hostel, offer guests a place to unwind and mingle, while the large terrace with garden tables and recliners overlooking the magnificent mountain panorama promises sheer relaxation.
The food available is diverse and varied. In the evening, a 3-course meal is provided consisting of local dishes, and the substantial breakfast buffet is, as usual, included in the room rate.
The new youth hostel is ideally located very close to the skiing and hiking area. With over 300 kilometres of signposted, well-maintained paths and trails, the Gstaad holiday region is a true paradise for hikers. The cable cars around Saanen run throughout the summer season, and with the EasyAccessCard tourists can enjoy various discounts. During the winter season, the snow-capped mountains and nearby skiing areas offer a host of winter activities: 220 kilometres of ski slopes, various sledding runs and winter hiking trails, snow parks and much more are waiting to be discovered. For the more active guests, the youth hostel offers not only a ski room but also bike storage.
