This place is close to the trails if you're looking for a hike, and they also offer discounts if you want to rent a bike (or skis). It's a really cute place with a mountain cabin feel, the lockers are a bit small but it's really no big deal. The place is staffed by a super friendly crew, with no real faults I'd highly recommend this hostel to you. -The Hostel Poet

The Matterhorn Hostel was conveniently located (Zermatt is not a big town, it's at most a 10 minute walk from the train station), and is cheaper than anything else in town. The staff was friendly and accommodating, and helped us get to the trails we wanted to hike. It definitely isn't luxurious, but it's clean, comfortable, and safe. There isn't a full kitchen, but there's a comfortable living room with tables and chairs, and they are willing to do a minimal amount of food preparation for you.


Good location very close to cable car to matterhorn mountain but there's almost no common areas to meet other backpackers. In addition, is a really cheap place to stay few nights if you compare the prices in Zermatt.
