    This place was incredible! Surrounded by mountains, right in front of the waterfall and an easy walk to the main strip for groceries. We loved staying here so much. The staff was incredible and so helpful, really nice chill environment and the bar downstairs was also a great plus. Would 100% recommend!

    I stayed in the 12 bed dorm during off-season so there was only a couple beds occupied which was nice. The location was great, very close to some amazing walking trails and only about a 12 minute walk to the train station. There is a bar downstairs that was an awesome place to meet other people staying in the hostel. The office staff was incredible, she was very knowledgeable about what to do around the area and was very accommodating! Amazing hostel experience!

    10 out of 10! If I could rate it higher I would. Deb was a fantastic host, helping us navigate our options each day as the weather changed, and her help and hospitality helped us make make our trip that much more incredible! THANK YOU DEB! Centrally located in the valley at the end of town, Schutzenbach provides quick access to just about anywhere you want to go in the area. The facilities were exceptionally clean and up to date, and I would not hesitate to go back!

    My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. The location was amazing - surrounded by mountains and waterfalls. It was a great base to explore all the other towns. Although the earliest you can check in is 4 pm, we were able to leave our bags at the bar and go out to explore. One thing to note is that the use of showers and some kitchen amenities require an additional cost. Showers are 0.5 for 4 minutes. The room was very clean and warm. Great value and I highly recommend staying here!

    We enjoyed this hostel and it is in a good location. There’s no locks on the doors and the lockers are small so security is meh, but it doesn’t seem like the type of place to worry about. As far as facilities go, it’s really weird that they charge you to use a shower or a stove top. We rely on saving money by cooking in and having to pay 2CHF for 15 minutes (not 20, like the site says) is a bit uncool. We didn’t shower (only 2 nights) because we have to pinch pennies for our trip. Staff is great

    Terrible attitude by staff added to having to pay for showers. Would not recommend this place to anyone which is really sad because the location is stunning.
