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 has to be one of my favorite hostel in Europe. The view alone from the balcony is beyond amazing. Staff is very helpful and the the location is a short walk from the train station. Stock up on food at the grocery store which is a short walk and stay for a few day. If you can get the lone top bunk and wake up to an amazing view of the waterfall and the mountains.

    Super close to the train station, right in the middle of the town, and within walking distance of many attractions in lauterbrunnen, all for the right price. Amazing views and good customer service too.

    I recently had a solo trip to Lauterbrunnen and stayed here for 3 nights, I loved it! The bed, pillow, and comforter they provided were all super comfortable and the view from my bed was unmatched! The staff is very friendly and helpful and do a thorough job cleaning and keeping everything in order, I would 100% recommend staying here if you have the opportunity to!

    Cozy, quiet, lowkey hostel. A few minutes walking from the station. Overall a comfortable stay and got to meet some cool people. I enjoyed my time! :)

    Amazing location and the rooms were great. There was less of a sense of community here since there was no common room, and the laundry was a little difficult, but the staff was very kind and the kitchen was well maintained.

    Valley Hostel was excellent! The person at reception was very nice and helpful, the showers and toilets were clean, and the location is perfect for Lauterbrunnen activities. However, there are no lockers, and the luggage room is accessible by a key code that anyone in the hostel can use so it’s not secure.

    Nice location, decent beds. I arrived after the town shut down for the night, but some other guests fortunately stared their pasta dinner with me. Many of them told me that the proprietor had been rude to them, but only after they'd paid. The next day I experienced that exact thing—first the owner/manager was polite, but when I returned to ask a question about laundry, I was treated very differently (scolded for walking beyond the guest area, which I'd done since no one was at the desk).
