    I visited out of season but there were still students around which meant it was still a sociable hostel. Everyone there was so lovely, welcoming and open. The hostel had great facilities from bathrooms and kitchen through to a lounge, comfy beds, and hot showers which can be hard to come by haha. The staff were so friendly especially Agnes !! We love you!!! Despite not being in the city centre the location is 100% for hiking trails and a very easy and quick bus route straight to centre. 10/10

    Staying at this hostel was an amazing experience! It wasn’t right in the middle of town but it didn’t matter because a bus stop was about 2 min walk away with buses running almost every 10 minutes. This place was beautifully placed on the side of a mountain and the view was insane! The staff were absolutely amazing and made sure we felt comfortable and at home! Would definately stay here all over again!

    Great hostel if your looking for some hiking, a good trek just down the road up the hill. Piano and guitar make it good fun for people to hang out and play music together. Chill vibe, relaxed, great staff. Very nice stay.

    A lovely homely safe vibe, with breakfast, coffee and cake in the evening, large communal kitchen with utensils, and other activities included. Plenty of time to make friends with the other guests. The hostel is 30 mins away from the centre by bus, but isn’t advised to walk back as it’s quite far up the steep hill. The only downside was on the first night I stayed on the top bunk, which was soooo creaky, but the next night I moved to the bottom and was much better!

    Great location for the Ulriken hike, as near the Sherpa steps and the cable car. 20 min on the bus into the centre, which is fine but cost can add up. The facilities were great and was everything we needed there. Breakfast was fantastic, with a beautiful view that you just can’t beat. Would recommend for sure, if you don’t mind being out of the centre.

    The hostel was great. The kitchen was big enough to handle a busy night with lots of people cooking. The breakfast is amazing and our last morning we were leaving too early for breakfast so the staff packed us a lunch! Cannot recommend this hostel more

    A clean and lovely hostel with excellent facilities. It’s a bit out of the way of the city centre, but the amazing views and proximity to hiking trails makes up for it. The breakfast buffet is great value. Would stay at HI Hostel Montana again for sure:)
