Though this place is a bit more expensive than other hostels, the location in a little ski town sort of makes up for it. It has a nice pub downstairs (which plays great music), kitchen upstairs, and really clean bathrooms! The rooms are comfortable and warm (came over Christmas break) and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Definitely recommend...

Not the most glamorous place, but the sort of place you want to come to after a long day on the road. Excellent service. Basic but spotless room. Couldn't ask for more. If we were in schwyz again this would be our first port of call.

Budget hotel (though not at bargain-basement prices, but then again, it is a 'town' and not a mountain resort so prices are higher) with a decent, no-frills room. The highlight undoubtedly is the pub downstairs with a large outside area. Good selection of beers and a great place to relax and perhaps chat with the locals.
