Baracca Backpacker Reviews

This is a beautiful little hostel. It is off the beaten path. So it's a walk to get to, but worth the trip. There is a seasonal waterfall right in back and two others nearby that are nice for swimming and hiking. The hostel has a garden of fresh herbs for picking and using with dinner.



Our Backpacker is situated in the heart of the beautiful Maggia Valley, in southern Switzerland. Located at the edge ot the forest, you will find a cosy and friendly atmosphere.

Welcome to the smallest Backpackers in Switzerland!
