We were surprised to find on arrival that the check-in only opened at 4pm and a guest was allowed to check in to our shared room well after 10pm. Despite being advertised so, there currently really wasn't much of a kitchen to speak off. The small cooking area is outside, the sink is not attached to plumbing and the water from the kitchen tap apparently wasn't currently safe to drink or use for cooking. Still, quite acceptable for a hostel and a lovely breakfast.

Dear Anna, Thank you for your Feedback. We're sorry to hear that the check-in times were a surprise to you. This information is on the main description of our hostel, on all booking portals including Hostelworld. At the moment, our kitchen is equipped for summer operation. We are looking at a solution that the kitchen is also available in winter time. Best regards, Stana-Reception

Great little hostel and great value for money in an expensive place. Big lockers, very clean, and breakfast included which made it very reasonably priced! Kitchen is outside and minimally equipped but would be great to use in the warmer seasons. Would absolutely stay again.

Good option for such an expensive area. 15 minute walk to Grindelwald town, but you can take a bus or train down to the hostel (which is good with luggage because it is near a hill). Reception is only open from 9-12 and then 4-9pm. If you come in after 9pm, you won't get a key to your room, so you can't lock it. Lockers in the rooms are 5 CHF. Only one bathroom/shower facility downstairs, which is kind of a pain. Breakfast is really good!! They have local milk and cheese and lots of tea options!

Dear Solana, Thank you very much for your nice feedback. We would like to make a small correction in your review. The CHF 5 for the lockers is only an deposit. You always get the money back if is the locker open. We wish you great time and we hope to see you again :-) Greetings from snowy Grindelwald

When you reach Grindelwald station, you will have to either take a local bus or walk around 15 minutes downhill. The mountain train to Grund station (where the hostel is) actually costs money even with Swiss Travel Pass (the bus doesn't). This is Switzerland, doors are unlocked but they provide lockers if you feel unsafe about your valuables. Check in only available after 4 so don't arrive too early.

First off this place is a trek! Not a bad thing just farther than expected but buses & trains were available! We chose to walk! :) Rooms were fine, not bad Showers: not so great. They shut off every 30s or so, no where to hang your clothes except for the locker room style area which was a short distance from the showers... Breakfast: DELICIOUS!!! Fresh Grindewald yogurt, granola, breads, jams, meat, cheese, coffee, tea, juice, warm milk! Worth the stay!! I still think about the yogurt
