We have booked a double bed room but we have been placed on a twin bed room. That was a bit disappointing but overall it's a very cozy and quiet place.

Interesting building, but watch for the low beams. Very unhelpful staff. They did not seem to care about guests. The place is not easy to find and taxis are expensive.

I had to cut short my visit as i had a personal tragedy. We were coping with the sudden death of a very close relative. But the staff in attendance was very insensitive to us and behaved very rude. I will never ever come back here.

The place is beautiful. The people that attend are very helpful. It’s a little far from the train station by walking. The breakfast is good. The bathroom was very small but with everything necessary.

Hotel was rather difficult to locate, and the heater wasn't warm enough. Nonetheless, it was a pleasant stay and breakfast was very good. The owner is very friendly and had a very cute son and a dog. Very typical Swiss house and was glad I stayed there.

The staff was extremely helpful and kind. Our room was fairly small but manageable. The breakfast was excellent every morning-very fresh and delicious! We had a hard time finding the spot since we arrived in the night but its a great location.

It's a nice hostel to stay at, the staff there were very friendly and helpful. The prices for the rooms were OK. In terms of facilities, there are things can be improved in the shower room. The temperature of the water wasn't consistent as it should be. There should be a hands wash as well.

Twin sharing room -- below average Breakfast is included in the rent -- Breakfast is excellent Wifi - Not good at all Worst is the booking made through hostelworld wasn't available to the staff at Hirschen. They had no clue that i had booked a room in Hirschen through Hostelworld. Luckly they had a room to give us when we reached Hirschen, else it would have been very very difficult . Check on it when you book the room.

This is the second time I have Stayed here and I am still happy with the selection. The free breakfast is nice and helps out a lot by saving time. The building is historic and gives you a feel of old world Switzerland. Just dont expect lots of space buthey you're in Europe. I would stay here again. Its about a 15 min walk from both train stations, its a horse a piece. Restaurant downstairs is not cheap but is very good.

It was very nice place to stay. Located in amazing and beautiful area. The rooms were clean and facilities were adequate. The hostel also has a restaurant to it. They also provided us with attached kitchen with utensils so we could also prepare our own food and drinks. Overall, very satisfying experience. And the breakfast they served was very good too. I would recommend this place for travellers with medium budget and looking for comfortable stay.
