    Great more than my expectation. Before I arrived there is my really bad day for whole day. But after I arriving I feel like home. I can chitchat with reservtion for all topic. This is my great experience and great time. This is secound time for me in Switzerland. But this hostel make me happy and want to back there again. I decide to make new trip and stay there again already. For some comment about you have to pay money for hot water. I already ask them after thy got money. They will donate 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 hostel was in a perfect location where it's a short walk to the main transportation hub but it's still in a more quiet area with more nature surrounding it. The staff was excellent and super friendly and really helped us with planing our day trips, they definitely were a highlight of the trip. The only cons were that it's somewhat hard to find the regular European plug instead of the swiss standard. And the hot showers cost money but that's due to the difficulty in getting water heated there

    The staff of Schutzenbach Backpackers & Camping is the best staff i have erver seen in any of my travels they are super nice , super helpful and very generous as well . The hostel it self has all what you will need from a hostel with paying a considerable price but there is only one problem that you have to pay for hot water in the shower and after you pay it's not really hot it's somehow warm But as an overall stay i had a wonderful time and hope i can go back there again soon

    The hostel was amazing, its located in an incredible location in the heart of the tony town of Lauterbrunnen. The staff are really what makes this place so special, the lady from the front office was so nice, always helping us even if we didn’t ask and constantly offering us some stuff to do during our stay. At our last day at the hostel, we had a train to catch late at night so we stayed with our luggage at the bar waiting for it, she came out and offered us all complementary Applepunch! ❤️👍🏻

    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
