    3 min walking distance to grindelwald grund train station and local bus terminal. Local bus is free if you stay here. Staff was super friendly and helpful. This place was the cheapest stay I could find. Air condition was not so great though.

    Didn’t enjoy the stay and expensive for a hostel

    I would give them 2/5 stars. You have to put on the bedsheets on the mattress, pillow case on the pillow, and cover on the blanket yourself. The bathroom and showers were only downstairs so had to go down everytime. Wifi is only available in the lobby so again have to go downstairs. Towels and such are not provided automatically, and when we asked for them, we got very dirty looks from the staff. Finally, we’ve been to other hostels in Swiss itself where bathrooms were on every floors, wifi available in rooms, beds were already made, towels were provided for each person, and price of the stay was less than this place. Therefore, I would not recommend this place. Only positive was the breakfast was decent. Nothing great, just cereal, milk, bread, butter, jam, some sliced meats and cheese, but satisfying.
