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!

    This might actually be the best hostel or hotel I’ve ever stayed in. It’s very clean and very cheap for the price, perfectly located in a gorgeous mountain valley.

    This was my first time staying at a hostel and it exceeded my expectations. Quite honestly this place set the standards high for future hostels I stay in! The place was very clean, staff was super friendly/accommodation and it was in a great location. Lauterbrunnen is an Absolutely beautiful place and I recommend making a stop here on your trip to Switzerland.

    This is a great place to stay. This is a clean, safe, friendly and helpful place. Stayed in a mixed 8 person dorm that consisted of three early twenty girls, a family of four with two teens and myself 50 something. Never felt unsafe or worried. There is no lockers at this hostel.

    A very clean and lovely run hostel. We met the owner who explained it was a family owned hostel and he made us feel very comfortable and welcome. The only thing that would make it better is if the rooms had lockers and more power points. It’s not a party hostel but there is a lively vibe in the outside areas and reception sells beers and wine. I would 100% recommend this hostel to anyone wanting to go to Lauterbrunnen (which is also the most beautiful area we have ever stayed in).

    Really great hostel and so much better than being in interlaken. Our annoying thing was that it says there is a pool on this page but actually there is a just a nearby public pool you need to pay for. Other than that a really great hostel

    Nice hostel, facilities, and rooms but not much atmosphere as a solo traveler. Mostly families and groups , or really young travelers from Australia ( some looked no older than 19)Also could have used some basic spices in the kitchen and some coffee or tea in the morning.

    Very Good

    15 Jul 2019
    I'm not really if it's language barrier or anything, but I don't feel comfortable commutating with the receptionist. When I got there, the receptionist took ages to look at me, not even greet me, and she looked kinda bored or annoyed. I stayed in girls dorm, the bed has a 'damp smell' when I got near to it.

    Very Good

    Very cleanly, good price. However, the 6 bed dorms are small, they have no lockers for your belongings and there is barely enough space for everyone to store their bags. They also make you remove your shoes when you enter the hostel, which is fine but they expect you to wear a pair of used communal slippers instead of giving you your own new pair when you arrive. The location is great though, a short walk from the train station and right in town.
