A bit difficult to find the hostel at first and it's a bit far away from the train station. The room is not secured as it doesn't have a lock on the door so remember to bring your own lock or get a key for the locker at the reception. Staff is extremely helpful and I would stay here again if I go to Zermatt.
Hostel smelt very bad. Common room was one of the worst I have experienced- smelt terrible, limited appliances and cutlery ect- leaving little options to make own food.

Not a very good hostel. Only good thing is its Zermatt.
After reading past reviews, I already knew what to expect. Extremely congested rooms & only 2 showers at the basement (for all guests in 3 floors) is the main feature ! For an expensive place of Zermatt, this is for sure the cheapest place by far. The attached restaurant serves good food at reasonable price (again, at Zermatt price levels). In all, more competition is required to have better quality hostels at this place.
Cold showers, cold rooms. 1 blanket which is itchy. Lockers are crappy. Small beds. Average wifi. It's worth spending a little more
You're literally just paying for somewhere to sleep at night and I wasn't even sure if the sheets that were already on my bed were clean or just there from the last person that stayed and the blanket smelt like sweat. The shower is fine as long as you don't leave it too late in the night otherwise it's cold. It would've been nice if there was a kitchen because Sparky's was closed. It is one of the cheapest places to stay and the reviews were basically true so I knew what to expect which was fine
Security must be improved. Behavior of receptionist should be more cordial. Restaurant should be in running condition. Quality or blanket and bed could be better.
