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!

    I had an amazing stay at a perfect little hostel. I liked the no shoe rule, and staff were very friendly. Lauterbrunnen, and in particular my stay at Valley Hostel, will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you!

    Great hostel! It was in the most amazing city I’ve ever been to. You’re in a breathtaking valley, surrounded by nothing but mountains and waterfalls. The hostel itself is very clean, and the kitchens were great! Will definitely be heading back one day!

    BEST HOSTEL EVER! I loved this hostel so much. The rooms were amazing, spacious and clean, beds were comfortable, toilets and showers were excellent, and the kitchen was well equipped! The absolute perfect hostel, best I've stayed in by far. Did I mention the view? Breathtaking view of the mountains, both from your room and from the common area. Would recommend to everyone.

    This hostel was highly recommended by a friend and she was spot on! Absolutely spotless (they have a no-shoes policy) with comfy beds and *gorgeous* views. We had a big picture window and a balcony! Great value, lovely staff, and perfect location. I can't wait to come back!

    The area is absolutely stunning - a little paradise valley surrounded by waterfalls, mountains and green pastures. I stayed in a twin bed room which was great and had a private balcony. A local store for groceries helps keep costs down as Switzerland is expensive if you’re on a budget. Only downside was I went in between the winter and summer season so wasn’t able to explore the region properly or hike up to the higher trails due to risks of avalanches or falling trees.

    Good kitchen and eating space. Rooms were nice but I was on a small lofted part of the room and it was amazing when it was just me-a window with a great view of the town and waterfall above my head-but a bit awkward the night someone slept on the loft as well. Seriously our beds were inches apart foot to foot with no sense of separation. Atmosphere depends on the people-I was lucky to meet a good group of people but it could’ve easily gone the other way

    Amazing location... can see the mountains out your window and it’s absolutely beautiful. Definitely not a social hostel, but that’s to be expected in such a tiny town! Staff are very friendly and you really have everything you need here.

    Cute and cozy! Perfect location in Lauterbrunnen valley, the hostel it maybe five minutes front the train and cable car system for easy access to most of the Jungfrau region. Lauterbrunnen is also a lovely little town. Friendly staff willing to help advise sightseeing plans, big industrial type kitchen (no oven and no “extras” like seasonings, oils, plastic wrap etc). Wonderful dining areas both outside and in. The view was amazing, beds comfy, plenty of power outlets. No lockers, but felt safe.
