Property Description

The Valley Hostel is the place to make your holidays memorable. We are located in the beautiful Valley of Lauterbrunnen, in the heart of the Jungfrau Region, just 20 minutes by train from Interlaken.
Our reception is open for check-in form 8 am to noon / 4pm to 10pm
There is no check in after 10PM, please not that!

The Valley Hostel is centrally located in town nestled in a magnificent mountain world, surrounded by 72 waterfalls. All shops and restaurants are closer then 50 meters from our hostel. We have single, twin and double, triple and family rooms as well as 4, 5, 6 and 8 bed dorm rooms. All rooms have a nice view to the mountains and famous waterfalls. Shower and toilets are on every floor.

You can prepare your breakfast, lunch or dinner in one of our 3 kitchens in the hostel. On a nice summer day use our B.B.Q. on our large terrace. Relax while lying in one of our deck-chairs in our garden and enjoy the breathtaking view of the many waterfalls and snowcapped mountains.

Want to tell your friends at home news of your travels, just say hello, or plan a trip? If you have your own notebook with you, we have free W- LAN in the house! You will also find laundry facilities on our premises.

Whether it is winter, spring, summer or fall we offer a wide variety of excursions and activities which can be booked directly at our hostel. You can get all information and maps for these various excursions, hikes and activities at our reception.

Take a gondola to the top of the mountains where you can explore numerous hikes and trails (from easy to difficult) and enjoy the spectacular views of the Eiger, Mnch and Jungfrau plus many other glaciers and lakes. Visit the famous Schilthorn with its revolving Piz-Gloria restaurant. Here the 007 Movie, 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service', was filmed. A train ride up to the Jungfrau might be the excursion for you. The Jungfraujoch-Top of Europe is the highest-altitude railway station in Europe. See the amazing views from its observation terrace the Sphinx (A winter wonderland all year round).

In winter, spend the day on skis or a snowboard exploring the 120 km of slopes in our area. On the Mannlichen-Kleine Scheidegg you can ski the whole day at the bottom of the Eiger, Mnch and Jungfrau. From the Schilthorn, you can ski all the way down to Lauterbrunnen (it is a ski run of 16 Km in length). The ski rental is just next door from our hostel! If you are not a skier, you can still enjoy the outdoors in winter with the many hiking/walking paths at First or sledding on the Eiger Run.
Our Motto: Check in as a guest, leave as a friend!

    A great hostel! The facilities are clean and the beds are comfortable! Perfect location, I would definitely stay here again! The only thing that was annoying was you had to take your shoes off before entering the hostel, making it hard to pop in and out, but that’s just personal preference! Definitely kept it clean though!

    The place is super recommended for travellers who are looking for a quiet place and value for money. I love how the windows are overlooking the mountains plus the gushing of water will wake you up in the morning. Gosh, Lauterbrunnen is a dream!

    Wow! I loved this hostel. Perfect location and great property. We stayed in a private room with a shared washroom. Our room had a gorgeous view. Facilities are very clean and the shower is great - water pressure is really good. The people staying in the private rooms were in one chalet and shared a kitchen. While the other chalet housed the dorm rooms and their own kitchen. Each room had their own drawer labelled with the room number in the fridge, and a basket on a shelf to hold food items.

    The hostel was great, although there were not enough plugs for chargers in the hostel, and if there were plugs, they didn’t accommodate the European plugs that, well, everyone uses. If you want to facilitate customers, who put bread on your table, how about getting off your stubborn Swiss ideals and put some chargers that people could actually use. With that said, it was a very nice hostel.

    Nice, clean and modern hostel located right by the Lauterbrunnen train station. There is no common room, which can make it a bit difficult to meet other guests. However, there is a fairly large kitchen and dining room with indoor and outdoor seating. Showers/bathrooms are roomy, hot, and clean. Overall, a great home base to get a good night's sleep and be ready for the day's activities.
