    My husband & I only stayed there for one night, but everything was perfect! Paul was very friendly & kind. Location was amazing as the cable car 🚠 is just across the restaurant/hostel. The lake was worth travelling for 😍😍

    My experience was great; the hostel and amenities were very clean. The location was literally right by the gondola or hiking trails to get up to lake Oeschinensee, saving more time for the hiking. The restaurant’s food was very tasty and the drink menu was very pleasing to this beer connoisseur. But, what really made the trip better than I expected was Paul, the owners, hospitality, attention to detail, and work ethic! If I am able to come back to Kandersteg, I will definitely stay here again.

    Kandersteg and this hostel were amazing. Paul was incredibly helpful throughout our 3 night stay and gave great advice on hiking and other activities in the area. I felt as safe as I could be in the hostel room and never had any problems. I can't speak to the restaurant but there is a coop and volg just a quick walk away which had everything we needed. This was an incredible experience and I would highly recommend it!

    Terrific experience. The owner (Paul) is very friendly and will go out of his way to ensure you have a good experience. The hostel is also just steps away from the cable car that takes you to Lake Oeschenin.

    Loved it. The owner/mgr is awesome. The dorm, itself, was very small and lacked storage space, but for the price we could live with it.

    Absolutely incredible hostel. Located tucked away in the Swiss mountains, right next to the cable car, and a quick (+beautiful!) walk away from the little town. I will absolutely stay here again in the future!

    The host, Paul, was extremely kind, helpful, and friendly on our stay. I recommend eating in the restaurant as his service was the best of our trip.

    This is a perfect hostel for any backpacker trying to stay somewhere cheap. It's one big dorm so privacy doesn't really exist, but the beds were comfortable. There is no place to lock up or really store your things, and there is no lock on the door into the dorm. The staff is VERY friendly. The showers cost one frank. We felt very welcomed here and would stay again.
