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!

    Superb

    For some people, hostels are generally chosen over hotels for their price and atmosphere. The ability to meet new people and become immersed in a small community, even if for only a day, is what makes the hostel experience worth it. At Mountain Hostel, this community experience was unlike anything I’ve seen in any other hostel. I felt like I was simply joining in on a group of friends who were all just passing time together.

    Absolutely loved it here! My mum stayed here 20 years ago and so I had to stay as well. I met so many amazing people, would stay again.

    Fabulous

    I loved my stay here, but I was slightly disappointed. My stay was during the last few days of their summer opening period (they close at the end of summer to have a break before the winter/ski season, was not mentioned during booking) so there were very few people staying at the hostel, and nobody under 25. The amazing, unforgettable social atmosphere that everyone raves about was something I missed out on unfortunately, and paying regular summer prices I expected more than what I got.

    Very Good

    Gimmelwald exceeded all of my expectations! This hostel is in prime real estate, the beds were cozy, the breakfast was delicious and overall it was tidy. I did however have a few critiques. Firstly, the hours are sporadic and random for the bar. The first night my friends and I were ordering beers all night until 11 and the next night they had the bar area closed at 9 for a staff dinner. One of the gentlemen also didn’t know how to use the card machine. Overall the staff weren’t great.
