View is great. Very friendly environment, and it doesn't remind you of the traditional thoughts of a hostel. This place is clean, orderly, and I felt very safe. It is a great town and I can't wait to go again. P.S. bring food to cook for yourself (only breakfast provided)


"Last minute reservation cancellation"

Mountain Hostel cancelled my reservation 5 days before my arrival. Who on earth are these people who are so cruel and inconsiderate. Citing reasons like computer booking system problem that allowed the booking are just plain lies that covered up oversight and incompetence of the owners of the hostel. I only hope the worse for this so called amateur run hostel establishment.


"Beautiful area"

The hostel is in a beautiful area. We were there on a low season so we had everything for ourselves. The good is we didn’t see anyone in our hikes, the staff at hostel was relaxed and played games with us. We ate dinner and breakfast together. I very much enjoyed Joel and Ivy company. So peaceful. The bad for us, nothing to do with hostel, we had bad weather so it rained on us during the hikes (it didn’t stop us) and all restaurants and bars were closed.


"The Mountain Hostel Takes Care of YOU."

We brought 30+ university students to the Mountain Hostel and in addition to being able to soak in the beauty of the Gimmelwald, we were treated to the great hospitality of Petra Brunner and the hostel staff. The pizzas were delicious, the company in the evening so enjoyable, and a hearty breakfast to start the day. Thank you our friends of the Mountain Hostel for all you did to take care of us!


"A home away from home!"

The people working at Mountain Hostel create an atmosphere which encourages dialogue among those who stay at the hostel- who come far and wide to this common dwelling. It is truly magical- I will definitely return.
