    • Stayed here because it was cheap

      Reviewed 10 August 2019

      This place is cheap but ok get what you pay for. No towels provided. Rooms are old and run down. Some lockers are big and some are small, bring your own lock. Shower drains dont work so your feet stand in water after a few seconds. Really weird clientele, room always smelled like sweaty clothing. Person who checked me in the first time was not friendly and seemed angry.

    • Mean, rude, and unfriendly staf

      There is absolutely no sense of hospitality or customer service! I had the worst experience booking a reservation here. Do not choose this hostel under any circumstances even if this is the last resort (trust me: it's not worth the hassle).

      This was the last accommodation available in Zermatt. I stayed in this hostel for two nights in a twin bedroom. The room came with a bunk bed and a single bed. Everything in the room was old, rusty and dirty. It also has a kind of musty smell. The blankets gave an itchy feeling. I was kind of disappointed, considering that this is Switzerland. The showers which are located in the basement were very dirty. The toilets are very dirty as well, seems like no one clean the toilets - the floor has insects running around. The sink was super dirty! The only saving grace was the view from my room! It isnt very conveniently located as well, it takes about 15 mins to walk from the train station. The staff was okay, not rude - so thats great. Youve to pay for towels - 2 francs. Well, you pay for what you get. This is good for budget travellers, but if I had another choice, definitely wouldnt choose here.

    • Never ever, not value the price

      First time for my wife to Zermatt. View on Matterhorn, trip to Gornergrat and Fondue dinner at the Du Pont in the village was brilliant. Hotel was a nightmare. According Agoda and other sites it should be OK, price NOT low at all. It was already May but still cold. This hotel offers only toilet and shower for sharing which is OK, we knew that. BUT the room does not have towels and the shower had NO HOT/WARM water, only icy cold water for taking shower, washing hair. A NO-GO in the 21first century for this price. Staff not really friendly, correct but not "inviting" style.

    • Close to Gondola

      Reviewed 10 March 2019

      I was in Zermatt with my hubby and 14-yr-old daughter in late Dec. We were lucky to find any accommodation as we booked in Nov for a Dec stay. Outside of the typical $600-1,000 USD per night, this was affordable at about $150 USD/ night at Christmas time. The advantage of staying at this hostel is its LOCATION. It is a short walk in ski boots to the gondola. Frankly, i would choose this hostel over 5-star accommodation simply to be close to the gondola. I cringed to see dozens of people walking from their hotels 30-40 mins uphill in ski boots,,,,carrying equip. But then I prefer convenience to 5-star comforts. As a hostel, this is typical - 8 beds to a room in bunk format. Heat was great. As a matter of fact, we often turned down rads because we all found it too hot in the room. If you love meeting new people from all over the world and don't mind living in close quarters with strangers coming and going each day, you will enjoy this hostel. It helps if you are a camper;) Bathrooms and showers were clean enough. The restaurant upstairs was convenient, as we enjoyed a nice cup of hot chocolate with warm apple pie after a cold day on the slopes. I give this hostel 2 stars overall as accommodation compared with the elite hotels in the village. But it's 5-star for location!
