On arrival after a long train trip (which fortunately the railway line is across the road) we found that we were one room short so a colleague had to go elsewhere for our time there. 31 students, 4 staff and no performances for a few days. Everyone was rapt to have some time to themselves to sleep in, explore, spend...

Hi, Glad you enjoyed your stay in our Youth Hostel and time in Sion. Indeed the airplanes (mostly army or private jets) fly over the building in the landing phase, but only during the day and in limited number. We profided meals in the evening and as you mentionned, we regularly have fish on the menu, that perticular recipe usually...

As usual in Switzerland, the youth hostel is the only affordable place, while still very expensive (60 CHF for a single room with the shared bathroom). The rooms are clean, even if basic. The common area is super-nice and with a nice garden. The breakfast was better than the average swiss hostel.

Very clean and room was comfortable for family of 5 though a little small. Breakfast was good though not fancy. The staff all spoke English and were very helpful. They have bikes to rent which you can return in the next town. Overall, i would recommend for family stay

I arrived at the Youth Hostel at 2pm and had to get ready for a wedding. Unfortunately the reception was closed and there wasn't any phone number I could call for help. The reception hours are 5pm-10pm, which means I couldn't check in at all, had to forego my reservation and had to find an alternative at the very last...

Dear Sophie, I regret that you couldn't stay in our hostel. The reception opening hours are mentionned on the booking platforms as well as on the confirmation. There is always a possibility for either an early or late check-in to be arranged. Next time do please contact us prior to arrival, if you have any special requests. Our booking conditions,...

Everything you expect from a Swiss YHA: friendly staff (who speak good English), super-clean, free breakfast, limited reception hours, 2CHF coin deposit lockers. For a Swiss YHA the place is fairly cushy; sofas with a tv, (basic) guest kitchen area, and a patio that gets candles at night (though with a view of an apartment block). The location is very...

Stayed here for a couple of days prior to flying from Geneva. Scrupulously clean, very friendly staff and well positioned in the town. Will definitely stay again if I was in the area and would definitely recommend. We used it as a base for a day of sport climbing in nearby Bramois, about a ten minute drive.

I did the booking on the wrong date, even if I noticed inmediately and canceled the reservation within two hours, the cancelation fee of 75 Swiss Francs was charged. A complaint and phone call did not help. This Charge seems to me far to high also because the total value of my booking was 100 Swiss Francs.

It is very easy to find from the station and close to the centre. The outside does look quite shabby, but it was clean and provided a place to sleep. There were people from different ages, and all very friendly. The breakfast was typical continental and okayish.

We stayed for 2 nights due to working at a nearby tattoo convention. The hostel is very conveniently located next to Sion train station. The hostel is very spartanic, as expected. I had a two bedroom for myself, with shared bathroom and toilets. The bed was quite comfortable but the pillows were too bulky, so bring your own if you...

Stayed here for a week together with another ~90 people from 24 different countries while we had an international event. Food was good as well, showers quite modern, beds comfortable . If I'll ever come back to Sion (and I hope I will) I definitely gonna stay there again

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sleep at the foot of the mighty Viertausend, down in the valley of the 13 stars, where wine and Mediterranean fruit is grown and the jolly Valais folk meet in the Carnotzet to enjoy a glass of wine. Sitten in German or Sion in French, the capital of the Valais, happily sees itself as the centre of the world. Or at least the Alpine world. And the modern, centrally-located youth hostel is an ideal sports and leisure post from which to discover the whole of the Valais. ... more   less
