    Wonderful location, staff and hostel! My husband and two friends stayed in the family room and really enjoyed our stay. Very minimal room, only a small twin bunk bed to a person, no amenities. The bathroom and toilets are combined and unisex and all clean....More

    What kind of cable car ticket should I purchase? I didn't see an option to just go to Gimmelwald. Also, I was thinking about going to the peak, but it said tickets were over 100 CBH! That seems high for a short trip, and is that just for one way?
