The Chalet Martin was very cozy and comfortable. Everyone staying there was beyond friendly, and the hosts were also extremely nice. We were skiing there for the weekend, and the host drove us an hour there and back to go skiing at another mountain for the day. I highly recommend this to anyone else.

I stayed at the Chalet Martin Hostel for two nights and had a very enjoyable experience. The facility was very clean and all of the staff were very friendly and welcoming. I rented a private room and had a wonderful view of the mountains out front. All amenities made the stay enjoyable as well, including clean showers, cooking facilities, and...

Chalet Martin is run by an awesome down to earth family. We felt welcome from the very beginning. My wife and I had originally booked 2 nights in a mixed 10 bed dorm but we were given our own room since they had the availability. The view of the mountains from our room was truly spectacular. In addition to being...

The mountains around here are beautiful. There is great hiking in the summer and winter sports in the winter. The host was super nice and had great tips. If you like a very casual hostel style and like to make yourself at home then this is the place for you. If you're not expecting something fancy and appreciate a low...

Great atmosphere, cozy and comfortable room, gorgeous location. Absolutely recommend Chalet Martin to anyone. I would have paid much more than the fees of Chalet Martin for the experience. Perfect place for a couple, also for a lone traveler looking to meet people and explore the mountains.

We spent a week here in the middle of August with our two young teenage boys. The location is great, set just above the pretty mountain town of Gryon. We have visited before in the Winter but were overwhelmed with the beauty of the area in the summer. Gemma and Merlin who run the chalet are both keen climbers, walkers...

This hostel feels more like a casual mountain retreat. The highlight is the big yard out back with stunning mountain views, lounge chairs and hammock, picnic tables, and a fire pit to keep you warm at night. The staff are really friendly and will give you suggestions on things to do. Only small downsides are not many wall outlets, and...

True to everyone else's word, Chalet Martin is worth the visit. The couple who run the place, Merlin and Jemma, are truly down-to-earth and lovely people, and it was a pleasure to get to know them a little bit during our stay. You have to be chill to be staying at Chalet Martin, and being a friendly type will greatly...

This chalet offered classic swiss chalet atmosphere with the building being built in 1909. The views we're amazing no matter where you stood. More importantly though, the friendly atmosphere at Chalet Martin is exceptional. I was warmly greeted and had such an enjoyable trip interacting with the owners, workers, and fellow travlers!
