    The room was amazing with a sweet view of the valley and waterfall. The hostess was amazing! Made sure we had a great time staying at the hostel. One of the best hostel experiences I’ve had so far! Highly recommend this place

    Everything is super clean and taken care of. Also Lauterbrunnen feels like such a safe small town. The staff is amazing and will take great care of you too! Just don’t forget to pack some flip flops or something for the showers since they are all shared like in most hostels (I forgot haha). Right now it’s pretty quiet because of COVID which is actually nice especially if you’re just looking to enjoy the natural beauty of Lauterbrunnen. Also GO paragliding with AIRTIME in Murren it’s incredible!

    The staff were lovely and really helpful. The place was very nice and had a lovely kitchen with a fridge and free hot plates to use. I had a lovely time staying and will definitely come back on my next trip.

    This place is so beautiful, clean, and safe. The two women I saw working there are so kind and work really hard to keep the place in good shape!! Definitely worth it- and very affordable considering it’s in Switzerland

    Such a good experience for visiting Switzerland if you’re into the camping vibe! The little cabins we stayed in were so cute, very simple but that was fine since we spent most of the day outside doing things. Lauterbrunnen is a great location for traveling to the surrounding areas by train, and there are also plenty of easy hikes to do from there as well! The staff was super sweet and helpful at check in with recommending hikes and how to get there, and a few discounts are offered!

    Stayed in one of the lofts that had an absolutely amazing view of the valley. Very clean and basic with communal shower room/ bathroom. Debra was wonderful and incredibly helpful and super informative about the entire area, including interlaken. Only con (which was very minor to me b/c it’s Switzerland and this town is super small and safe) was that the dorm I stayed in didn’t lock from the outside so you just had to trust leaving your stuff while your out (which I felt very comfortable doing)

    Great atmosphere. Just wish that reception was open for a later check-in. I had to run from the train station because I thought I would be too late. Luckily, the bar had a key for me. It is a ten minute walk to the nearest place to eat.

    I had the best time at Schützenbach hostel! As a (female) solo traveler it was super easy to connect to other travelers. Staff was very helpful and gave lost of recommendations. I stayed in a private room so can‘t say anything about the dorm rooms. My room was minimalistic and clean with everything I needed. I liked the camping feeling of the place. Just keep in mind that hot shower costs extra. But seriously nothing beats the location, unreal views from the hostel (mountains, waterfalls)!!
