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!

    The hostel is in a prime location, in the central area almost opposite the big waterfall. All of the staff were very lively and friendly, which made for a great atmosphere. The facilties are cleaning everything seems to be well organised. Would stay here again.

    One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in. Comfy beds with huge pillows. The room had amazing views of the waterfalls and location cannot be beat. Everything was kept extremely clean and the kitchens/showers were really nice. They also had a laundromat which was very helpful.

    Very awesome Hostel! 5 minute walk from train station. Staff was very helpful with giving you information on what to do in the area. We had a double private room. Very small, no frills, but had a cute little balcony with a wonderful view of one of the waterfalls. They give you a tiny towel if you need, but recommend bringing your own. Was able to get into our room earlier than check-in time which was awesome. No shoes allowed in hostel. Just a little bit of girl's hair around the room.

    Overnight stop with family. Excellent location and wow the views. Own balcony area to chill but garden area to eat out also. Good kitchen area to make own food. Parking on premises but excellent location to train station. Washing facilities immaculate. There are also laundry facilities if required. The staff on duty were not very friendly. Otherwise excellent stay and would recommend

    I'm fine with self check in but I feel like there should be at least ONE STAFF MEMBER there at all times during the day. Apparently the person on call isn't there to help out in any form or fashion except to tell you to wait for reception hours with a dismissive snarky attitude. WHO EVER THE PEIRCED FACE GUY IS......?HE'S RUUUUUDE!! Clean place otherwise, great setup/floor plan.
