Location was great-beautiful views and close to train station. However the rooms aren't like they are pictured- very small for 6 people. Wifi was good, covered all areas of the hostel. Linen was old and ripped- they really should upgrade this for the cost people are paying. Quilts were nice and warm however.


I felt very clean, safe, and comfortable while I was there. The staff is very friendly and very informative!


Cosy hostel with a nice atmosphere. No lockers in rooms and not any space to store your bags but it felt quite safe. Shared bathrooms were reasonably clean but only luke warm water in the showers! Nice large kitchen but half the hot plates weren't working. The key card access to rooms makes a weird ringtone everytime someone comes in which is quite disruptive.


Great location, decent rooms, friendly staff. Strictly enforced 'no shoes in the house' policy. Toilets and sinks on each floor, but showers are down in the the basement. Kitchen to cook, small patio and outside space. Staff let us check in early since a room was ready, also offered us (a couple) a private room that became available instead of a dorm which we had reserved. Small room, but had a little balcony and a table, small closet space. Room was quiet, slept fine.


It was great!


Beautiful view from the hostel windows - great location. Clean. Nice kitchen for cooking and lots of shower facilities. Nice balcony off our room! I never found the pool and didnt like that we had to leave our shoes downstairs, however this kept the floors clean


Loved it here. Fantastic staff!!!! So friendly and helpful - when we got there, he showed us to our room and showed us ALL the facilities, really lovely welcoming! Cute rooms, clean hostel, kitchen & fridge to use, great atmosphere! Great location. Would most definitely recommend and stay again!


Beautiful hostel + stunning location = perfect vacation!


Best hostel I've stayed in. Great staff who will advice you on things to do, hiking trails etc. Very clean spacious rooms, big and organised kitchen, garden to sit in and perfect location near the station, shops and stunning views.


Staff here were so helpful with any activities or hikes. The hostel was clean and the kitchen facilities were great. Location is perfect and would definitely stay here again.


You are not allowed to wear shoes and have to wear the slippers that the hostel provides.. The hostel is a short walk from the train (everything in Lauterbrunnen is a short walk away from the hostel). The hostel was very friendly and accommodating to international visitors. The breakfast (which we did not get) had to be collected between 8-9am and consists of 2 bread rolls, jam, butter and a cup of tea or coffee for 6CHF. We just made breakfast ourselves for much less.

Enjoyed the stay in this hostel. Amazing views through the windows. Nice and clean rooms. Close to the train station. Shoes need to be left in a rack before entering the main hostel area and you get slippers, which is kind of good because the floors stay nice and clean. Dorms are nice and cozy but a bit congested. A nice big kitchen with all that you need and nice places to dine inside and outside.


Great hostel. Stayed in a cabin and it was safe and cute! Best scenery. Everything was clean and well organised. Would definitely stay here again!!


We loved our stay at this hostel, it was so homely and we felt like we could stay forever. All the facilities were great, the hostel was so clean and all the staff were super helpful. Thanks again


Awesome location, super clean, nice staff and the best BEST kitchen out of all the other hostels in Lauterbrunnen! Thanks guys :)


I was charged for two nights when I only stayed one. Was is a rush in the morning and arrived late the night before so I had no time to argue my case. Wasn't even given the benefit of the doubt. Very disappointed there was no leniency.. Would not stay here again personally!


Lauterbrunnen is GORGEOUS and this hostel is nestled directly in the middle of town. The rooms are spacious and bathroom and kitchen are very clean. I particularly liked the back patio where you can sit and marvel at the mountains! During my stay the hostel wasn't the greatest place to meet other solo travelers, but it could have just been my timing.


Definitely a nice hostel. It was basic, but it was comfortable. Good sized kitchen too


We loved Valley Hostel! This was our first experience in a hostel and it was fun. The environment was great - the patio with the amazing view outside the dining room was a great place to hang out. The facilities were nice and the bunks were comfortable. The kitchen was nice as well. We have no complaints and overall it was a great experience.


Great location for doing a lot in the area. Right near train, grocery, gondola, trails, public pool etc. Storybook views of waterfalls and mountains. Loved the backyard/ porch. No lockers but everything there seems really safe. Stayed in a 6 bed mix, no AC but you don't need it, open window works fine. Bathrooms great. Kitchen is great (but crowded) since everyone cooks there. Cool diverse mix of travelers. Highly recommend.
