The easygoing and fun environment at the hostel leads to memories and friends that last a lifetime.

    Easily the best hostel I've stayed at! Stunningly beautiful location over the valley, right next to cable car stop and hiking routes. Wonderfully friendly and helpful staff. All facilities cleaned daily. Comfortable beds. Happy combination of solo travellers and small groups. Big, homely dining & lounge room, and a large, fully equipped kitchen. I honestly felt at home here in the mountains. Cannot rate this hostel and its staff highly enough :)

    On my recent Europe trip, this was the best hostel I stayed in. Hands down. From the amazing view, friendly and helpful staff, to the wonderful travellers that call this hostel their home away from home - it was simply fantastic. From pictures you wouldn't believe this place is real - I assure you, it is. As for value, 45 CHF/night including breakfast is a deal in Switzerland!

    This hostel was truly special. The location is unbeatable, steps away from the gondola that connects Gimmelwald with the surrounding villages. Accommodations were very comfortable, though you shouldn't expect much privacy. The hostel had a friendly, community-oriented culture. The breakfast was probably the best I've ever had in a hostel. I hope I have the opportunity to come back again.

    What a wonderful place! Breakfast was great, the people were lovely, and the views were better than I could have imagined. Gimmelwald is a really special place, full of self-serve/honesty pay farm stands and amazing trails, and the Mountain Hostel fits right into the scene!

    Gimmelwald is just something out of a movie. The place is unlike any other place you’ll visit; and you have to go there to find out what I mean. Getting to Gimmelwald is hard, but well worth it.

    This hostel is pretty epic. The location is great for hiking. The beds are different than any other hostel I’ve stayed at. The beds are literally touching, but they say that is customary in the Alps because it is remote. Go to this hostel to hike and adventure. It’s definitely not a party hostel. I will be going back.

    A lot of flies while I was there. Fire ants down by the laundry area. Staff was helpful. Had enjoyable conversations with other hikers. Hostel itself was solid. You are not paying for the hostel itself; you are paying for the view and location. It will blow you away.

    MOST AMAZING LOCATION FOR A HOSTEL! When we arrived mid-day, we were greeted by other people staying there, and they were lovely—such a nice atmosphere from the start! But we were told we couldn't check in until 4:30pm. "Lovers" bunk room is cramped, but the breakfast is good, huge industrial clean kitchen, lots of common spaces and games! This hostel is 30 seconds from the cable car! Nothing to do in this town, but we went for food one stop up in Mürren and walked back, and it was GORGEOUS!
