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!

    We stayed in a 4 bed loft style room with balcony. It was spotless and very bright. The whole place was spotless and kitchen very well equipped. We also stayed at Camping Jungfrau before Valley Hostel and Valley Hostel is hands down the far nicer option. I would definitely stay at Valley Hostel again and would recommend it to my friends/family.

    I would LOVE to stay here again. The room had a beautiful view, wide windows, and comfortable beds. The location was amazing; close to the station and to everything else. The hosts had prepared a key in case they werent at the reception which was grand and they had a really nice outdoor area. Looking forward to going back

    This hostel is fantastic. 4 minute walk to the train station, right in the heart of town. A grocery store close by and the views from the balcony were unreal. We met the nicest people in our room and the rooms were cozy. The bathrooms were also pretty clean but just beware the shower head sprays so close the curtain before you turn it on so your clothes don’t get wet! Otherwise Perfect hostel!

    This is by far my favorite hostel I have ever stayed! Amazing location. It’s more of a place to wind down and enjoy the serenity. Don’t expect a crazy night life.

    Overall fantastic value. Having access to a full kitchen is a game changer. Sheets were a bit worn but acceptable. I had mixed feelings about the no shoes rule, on the one hand it was kind of charming, but having to use a shared bathroom in slippers when the floor was often wet was a bit uncomfortable.

    Valley Hostel is an amazing value for its location within walking distance from great hikes. You can access trailheads and transport within minutes and there is an industrial kitchen. Facilities: great kitchen organization, a mud room for storing dirty shoes and clothes, and a dining patio. Staff are friendly. There are some weak points: unclear on whether kitchen rags for cleaning, drying, or counter. Lack of cooking utensils. Flies inside. Anyone can access the shoe space. Not social.

    Had the cutest loft bed with a window looking out at the waterfall. Loved being at this hostel. No bar, but a nice yard area if you can find some people and some drinks. Kitchen is a good size. No lockers in the rooms, but the room door has a swipe card.
