This world-class hostel never disappoints. Great location (just metres from the railway station), super-friendly multi-lingual staff, modern facilities, comfortable rooms (private rooms and family rooms are available as well as dorms) and a great restaurant. The breakfast buffet, included in the price, is superb, and a three-course dinner is served every evening. You get a free pass for all local...

Having been hard at the cross country ski trails we stopped off here for some lunch and were not disappointed. The daily set menu salad, soup and main at €16 was a bargain by comparison to the surrounding options and the quality of food was great. The open fire was a bonus as well!

Although youth hostels are higher priced relative to hotels than they were 30 years ago, it's still a good way to save money in high priced areas like Pontresina. I saw more middle aged couples like us and families than "youth". We stayed here on either end of a trip to the Hotel Roseg Gletscher which is difficult to get...

We stayed two nights here and were very pleased. The hostel is modern, clean, excellently managed, and very convenient to the train station. The managers are very helpful and fluent in English and German. It might be the best value for the area. Breakfast was very good and generous- meats, cheeses, breads, yogurt, coffee, tea, juice, cereals. They also offer...

We would not normally have even considered staying in a youth hostel but, in view of our love of Switzerland and the high cost of accommodation in that country, we thought we'd give it a try. And we're so glad we did. The Pontresina hostel exceeded our expectations, and was easily as good as many of the small, family-run hotels...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Staying in these magnificent mountain surroundings, with their myriad of contrasts, is a delightful and unforgettable experience. Cyclists can pick up supplies here, while hikers arrive from Alp Languard via the high-altitude trail and discover the breathtaking panorama. And when those taking part in the Engadine Ski Marathon catch sight of the large, red building they can breathe a sigh of relief: they've reached the halfway mark! ... more   less
