Nice hotel

Great stay!


Good Hostel

This hostel is about a 15 minute downhill walk from the centre of Grindelwald. When you check in you are given a card that allows free bus travel around Grindwlwald, so you don't always have to walk back up the hill or pay for the train, although the buses can be quite infrequent. Beds are comfortable. There is no kitchen, just a microwave, and you have to pay if you need plates or cutlery. Breakfast is good, there weren't a lot of places I stayed in Switzerland that offered free breakfast, so I didn't mind that it was quite simple; bread, meat, jam, honey, cereal, apples, tea, coffee, juice and ovaltine. There are couches on the ground floor, so you can meet other travelers there.


Good hostel -- average breakfast

The location of this hostel is perfect, just next to the train station and cable car. The rooms are nice, the beds big enough, just the breakfast could see some improvement.

I stayed at this hostel in April 2005

This is a hostel similar to an HI Hostel in that it is clean, impersonal and has a good breakfast.

Some annoying points:

It's pretty isolated. It's more of a 20-30 minute walk to town, and if you get off the train with a big pack you've got to walk downhill (a taxi will take you about 3 minutes and run you about 12 Swiss Franks!). The biggest problem is leaving, because you can either wait for a train to take the 45 min. ride back from Mnnlichen OR you can walk uphill to the Grindelwald station.

It's impersonal. The staff are fairly rigid and non-friendly. They won't check you in until 3:30pm, so if you're early, you've got nothing to do. They were also completely useless in helping you figure out hikes, etc.

There isn't much to do. I was travelling alone, and there really aren't any places for young people to hang out and meet one another.

The bathrooms are far away. There are only bathrooms (albeit spatious and clean) on the first floor.

Your room is always unlocked.

Good points:

It's clean, spatious, the rooms have a sink, the breakfast had nice fresh bread.

Overall, if you're with people, and interested in spending a quiet time in a quiet town then, maybe this is the place for you. If you'd like to meet people, and have easy access to all of the Jungrau region and it's sites then stay in Interlaken (I loved Backpacker's Villa).


Thank you for my stay it was very good. The room was very nice & the beds were very comfortable. The room was well laid out but it was a shame about the leak in the sink. The view was spectacular.
