    This hostel gets the job done. The rooms and beds are clean and orderly, although it wouldn't hurt to have another layer to use while sleeping because there's only one kind-of-thin blanket given to you. I wouldn't happily sit on the floor of the bathrooms or showers, but they were relatively taken care of and I had no issues. Not much of atmosphere, but it's a small hostel and there is a bar attached that I never visited, so that might add to the experience. Solid place.

    Very welcoming and hospitable host …The accommodation is basic and the showers are located downstairs from the bedrooms , no sheets supplied , just a blanket . No facilities for preparation of food [ eg microwave] however the 'Sparkys bar-restaurant' attached to the premises is reasonably priced . Good for an overnight stop in a very expensive resort if your are on a budget . No security as such . Only hardy hostellers should consider this venue

    Cheap for Switzerland, but you don’t get much for the price. Pros - comfy beds & wool blankets -lockers in room (not sure if they have keys?? We were never given any but we also didn’t ask) -several toilets and big sinks -great location -our bunk room had a great view Cons -“kitchen” is only a kettle, mini fridge, plates, mugs and utensils -showers are small, ding, clogged and Luke-warm water at best -there are no keys to the rooms or hostel? We were never given any

    My pillow is thin like a chair cushion, and square size like a chair cushion. The blanket is a little itchy but still fine. But the price you pay, this is what you get. I wont complain further since i am traveling on budget. If i am visiting Zermatt again on a budget, i wll definitely stay here as the location is good.

    Staff was friendly and accommodating. Great area right next to multiple bars and a bridge with a perfect view of the river running through town and the Matterhorn. Shower facilities were pretty poor. No curtain in some stalls and water splashed under the stalls that did have a curtain. Had to put my boots in front of my clothes so they wouldn't get wet

    Really bad and dirty hostel. It's understandable that it is Zermatt and therefore a cheap hostel won't be a premium accomodation; but this hostel is just really bad: Constantly dirty floors and rooms, ugly rooms, less closets / lockets than people stating at the hostel, some rooms where extremely hot (too much) while others where freezing cold in plain winter. Overall, really really bad value for money !

    Very unpleasant place. Shower is awful and in winter time it's freaking cold, you can't even take a proper shower, water wasn't at even 25 degrees - was freezing cold. Would not recommend at all. Yes it's cheapest place in zermatt, but really not worth staying, especially if you go for 2+ days.

    The property was a disaster. The bathrooms and shower are unclean. The dorm beds don't even have a ladder to climb up, shelves/ cupboards in the dorms do not have knobs to lock them, floor is dirty, windows don't shut fully. Bed spreads and blankets are extremely dirty (hairs on them, dust, stains - disgusting really). No charging There are no locks on the dorm rooms (I knew this before I booked). No kitchen at all - an extremely rusted kettle and a mini-fridge. Sink beside open urinals.
