Clean place. Centrally located in Laterbrunnen. Restaurants and train station close by. Congenial hosts. Less expensive than other hotels. Free parking. No problem using our own slippers. Towels were provided and they were sufficient with which to dry off. Pretty flowers on balconies.

Valley Hostel was a few minutes walk from Lauterbrunnen station and well connected by walking trails or bus to go to Trummelbach Falls (loved this), Schilthorn Bahn and Stechelberg. I spent 1 night in a 6-person mixed dorm and the 2nd night in a private 4 person room. The wifi signal was terrible in the dorm room but there was...

The dryers in the laundry cost 5 franc per cycle. If the people who use it before you open the door early your 5 franc will be used to finish off their cycle, not start a new one. I complained to the reception who stated that it was the persons before me fault but she would not give a refund....

We had a large dorm room of 8, and overall, it was good. We liked the comfort of the beds and blankets, as well as the keyed access. The location is excellent - easy to find from the train stop and right off the main road. The kitchen was huge and wonderfully stocked. We cooked there frequently and enjoyed lounging...

Never really had a need to review a place but made and exception for this one as it slightly spoils a stay in such a lovely part of the world. The staff as others have mentioned are quite rude, they are completely over the top about making you take your shoes off. I mean I can understand if your wearing...

I had such an unpleasant experience that I had to move hostels. I stayed in June, 2016 and throughout the whole night, there was extremely loud train works happening. The rooms are right next to the railway lines and I wasn't able to get any sleep, even with earplugs (vibrations too). Whilst these things are outside the hostel's control, I...

1, good location, good price in lauterbrunnen. 2, I was on the ground floor near kitchen, I was afraid it would be noisy (there's train passing-by too), but window & door are very soundproofing. 3, public bathroom, dining room & kitchen are clean (it depends on your neighbors though). The next morning I heard some one lost their eggs which...

The hostel is definitely conveniently located, meters from train and cable car stations, a market and the footpath to the waterfalls. It is organised in two separate buildings, with a fully equipped kitchen and bathrooms in both. It provides a lot of information on tourist attractions in the area. We were staying in a bunk bed room: spacious, clean and...
