It has clean room with remarkable meals. Open the window and you see Matterhorn right in your your eyes! The best location you can find in Zermatt!!! Hard to book and takes a long walk and climb before you can reach it. ;)

Okay. So when I say worth it, I mean because Zermatt is freaking awesome and this place is situated in a great spot. Yes there are flaws but to everyone who is winging. Stop, remember where you are. We booked a private room and it was pretty good. Had a balcony and was quiet. To be honest we'd probably stay...

Friendly staff, clean rooms, good facilities. Great view and a fantastic spot for photographs. Dinner and breakfast are good value for money. Wifi a bit patchy but ok. It was great for a female solo traveller only for two days trip.

Zermatt is a stunning location and I am glad I chose to stay at this youth hostel during my stay. The dorm rooms were comfortable and clean, as were the bathrooms and communal areas. The breakfast is free and generous in size as well as being tasty. It is worth taking them up on the offer for dinner as well...

This was our only youth hostel on a five week family holiday around Europe and it suited our needs fine with a fantastic view of the Matterhorn from our room. However even though we are pretty fit, the walk up to the hostel was long, steep and not entirely easy to find the destination!!! If we had known what a...

This was an above average hostel and nice place to stay....for one night only. The view was phenomenal, the staff was friendly, and the rooms were clean, but one night was plenty. The hostel is located very far away from the train station which is inconvenient when carrying all of your luggage, but the view from the top is worth...

Well, we expected Zermatt to be an expensive place.... but after 2 hours there, we decided to cancel the second night in the Zermatt Youth Hostel. Not because it was bad - it was a very nice hostel, very clean, firendly people, an amazing view, far over average... - but as Interrailers who wanted a cheap trip through Europe, Zermatt...

Lovely YH in terrific alpine village. Whilst uphill walk to get there, hostel has views of Matterhorn from many windows. Good value evening meals help reduce costs in pricey town too. Walk to all mountain railways and walking tracks.

The best youth hostel in Zermatt. You'll receive a nice tidy cozy room with view of Matterhorn with very less money. You'll just need to work out a bit to get tho the hostel but heyyy its worth it, trust me !!!
