Stayed at NF Hostel for two nights. The neat and clean and beautiful wooden chalet is on a quiet road high up the town. The regular bus service drops you off right in front of the hostel. The hosts are exceptionally friendly and breakfast was out of this world! Prices unbelievably cheap and small cabin rooms were all we needed!...

I spent one night here with my husband and stepson, who lives in Zurich. He hired a car and drove us here. As soon as we stepped out of the car the clear, fresh air hits you and the views are out of this world. The hostel was adequate for our needs. We shared a room which contained 3 bunk...

After staying at Naturfreundehaus in summer, my wife and I decided to try a winter visit, so that we could take advantage of the regional 'Winter Walking & Sledging Pass'. It was as wonderful as ever, and I cannot recommend this place highly enough. The two hosts take every care to look after you, and they have a wealth of...

Excellent value for money budget accommodation (by Grindelwald's standards). 20 minute walk from Grindelwald centre, but also a free bus service from Grindelwald centre right to the front door. Fabulous view of the Eiger. Can sit back and enjoy a glass of Rose on a summer evening looking out on the Eiger. Has the facilities for self-catering, but their three-course...

This hostel also goes by the name Naturfreundehaus if you are feeling a bit confused. We had only 4 days to spend in Switzerland and I am so glad we spent the first two in Grindelwald at this hostel. After arriving at the station, we took the free bus town bus. There are several lines so be sure you let...

This was our second visit to Naturfreundehaus in Grindelwald (we were here two years ago), and it remains an absolutely wonderful place to stay. Apart from the amazing value for money (Grindelwald prices are exceptionally high), this really does have so much to offer. The breakfast is outstanding, and I strongly recommend that you opt to pay extra for the...

One of the best stays on our trip. Breakfast was amazing. Huge variety. Verni and her Husband made us feel so welcome. They were very quick to respond to email requests. The position is perfect.
