Property Description

Located in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Jungfrau region, the Mountain Hostel Gimmelwald is simply love at first sight. Buzzing with travelers from around the world, it is quite common to come here for a day and stay for weeks.

With perfect access to the many hiking trails from our front door, we also make a great base for outdoor activities such as paragliding, rafting, via Ferrata, and more. The hostel seems to attract a certain type of traveler a social, fun, respectful, and adventurous with a love for the natural beauty that the Alps provide. A photographer's dream, Gimmelwald is a place you really have to see to believe.

The easygoing and fun environment at the hostel leads to memories and friends that last a lifetime. In the evenings you will find travelers playing cards and games, guitar and piano, or sharing tales from that day's hike. It is amazing to see familiar faces that come back every year sitting side by side with new travelers in awe of the view, having a beer on the deck as the sun sets on the mountains.

The Mountain Hostel will be the highlight of your trip and an unforgettable experience. See you soon!

This is potentially the sickest hostel I’ve ever stayed in. Insane location, great accompanying bar and restaurant. Good mix of locals and guests. I was fortunate to enjoy a live show one night as well. Place is an absolute vibe. Everyone that works there is dope too. Hope to stay again one day. Only thing is the sleeping sitch can be eh when there are 16 people filling out the room. But by no means a dealbreaker. 10/10 spot.

One of the best hostels i've stayed at! Great location for hikes, walks, adventure sports, with incredible views right on the property. The staff was super friendly with a great atmosphere created by the longer term volunteers who worked there. Have nothing bad to say would stay there again in a heartbeat
