Property Description

Located in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Jungfrau region, the Mountain Hostel Gimmelwald is simply love at first sight. Buzzing with travelers from around the world, it is quite common to come here for a day and stay for weeks.

With perfect access to the many hiking trails from our front door, we also make a great base for outdoor activities such as paragliding, rafting, via ferrata, and more. The hostel seems to attract a certain type of traveller – social, fun, respectful and adventurous with a love for the natural beauty that the Alps provide. A photographers dream, Gimmelwald is a place you really have to see to believe.

The easygoing and fun environment at the hostel leads to memories and friends that last a lifetime. In the evenings you will find travellers playing cards and games, guitar and piano, or sharing tales from that days hike. It’s amazing to see familiar faces that come back every year sitting side by side with new travellers in awe of the view, having a beer on the deck as the sun sets on the mountains.

The Mountain Hostel will be the highlight of your trip and an unforgettable experience. See you soon!

    An amazing cabin-style hostel nestled within the mountains! (Yes, it looks as awesome as the pictures). This hostel is well worth the money given it’s location. Just a few minute walk (or cable car ride) up to the more commercial town of Mürren, this hostel is perfect for those who want to explore the landscape with countless hikes and other activities at your doorstep! The bathrooms were always clean and much more modern than I expected. As a solo traveller I couldn’t recommend it more!!

    This was the most picturesque hostel! It is in a beautiful scenic mountain. We stayed in the lovers room. This room had bunk beds that were all attached and I left right next to my friends which was fun, but could be weird with strangers. Breakfast included bread, fruit, jams, cheese, ham, and oatmeal. There was also a bar too. Kitchen was fun to cook in with people. The hostel is located in a really small village, but it is a 50 min walk up to the ski village, or a quick gondola ride up as well

    Such an amazing place to stay. The only thing that could make it better would be lockers for guests to lock away their stuff but we left our stuff out and it felt very safe! The location could NOT be better and the staff is awesome and offers tips for what to do! We will be back if we can!

    A perfect stay for those who love nature and the outdoors. Obviously, you can't beat the view! Gimmelwald itself is a tiny old village with a humble charm and a great launching pad for outdoor activities. The hostel is restored from an aged cabin with lots of history. It can be tight but I absolutely loved it. It had a very social atmosphere perfect for meeting other travelers or planning hikes, via ferrata, watching cliff jumping, or other outdoor activities.

    Mountain Hostel is located in an amazingly beautiful place. They close the hostel for cleaning from 9:30 – 11, which is a little weird. There are no locks anywhere but the village is so small everything felt very safe.

    I’ve stayed here numerous times over the years, used to be a lot more fun, it’s toned down quite a bit. However the location cannot be beat. Staff is a bit cold. My friend went to the bar and asked for another beer, the bartender replied, “you’ll have to wait for me to finish my sandwich” I’m a bartender, that’s ridiculous The 16 bed dorm should have about half that many beds; way too cramped.

    It’s a very special hostel. The location and the house is all Sound of Music. Absolutely stunning scenery and beautiful house. The atmosphere and the people are fun. Good breakfast. Lots of hiking nearby. If you want archetype hostel experience where you socialise with other travellers, live music and singing in the evening, 16 people dorm with bunk beds right next to each other in an alpine chalet, this is the place for you.
