    My stay here was absolutely fantastic!! Liliana at reception was super helpful and was always there to answer my 1000 questions or look at my photos after a long day! (or even just a long chat) I travelled solo and these guys made my stay so special! I will definitely be returning here! If you need a hostel that has everything... This is it!

    This was the highlight of my backpacking trip. The area is absolutely beautiful. I stayed in the dorm and it was comfortable. You do have to go out side and downstairs to get to the bathroom, nothing too fancy. But Deborah was very helpful and gave great tips for the area. Getting around to the mountains was easy enough.

    The setting was beautiful, and it was so easy to get around, with only 15min walk to Lauterbrunnen station or the bus right outside. The kitchen has everything to cook a basic meal (no oven) and there’s a bar on sight. The staff were very friendly. You have to pay for showers and unfortunately on all 3 days of our stay the water was freezing; but I was trying to shower early in morning or late at night. Would definitely recommend this ‘cabin in the mountains’ type feel backpackers
