This was the second time staying here and it was great. There were 4 of us and we ended up having a full floor to ourselves. The rooms have everything you need in them, the bathrooms are clean and have hair dryers and towels etc. The staff are even ok with you eating your own food in the dining area,...

The 3 of us showed up with short notice and they found space in the penthouse suite (at the very top) with no problems. We enjoyed a 3 course dinner prepared by a great chef for a mere 25chf and had a good night with a few beers at the in-house bar. Everything was better than expected, from service to...

I came to Laax by way of chance, on a recommendation, a whim and a few bucks. Guschtie and the Capricorn staff not only welcomed my brother and I with open arms, they also happily gave us more info than we could ever have asked for. As a result, we spent 48 hours doing some of the most awesome and...

As plant biologist I spend a considerable time every from spring to fall up the mountains doing research. I work where you guys make holidays. As the days are long and the working load heavy, we are always happy to return to the Capricorn in the evening. Guschti is a great guy, that has been helpful always as troubles in...

We planned a short holiday in Laax and needed a cheap and cheerfull place to stay. As for usual, spending more money, doesn't automatically mean the quality of the place will improve at the same rate. Hence the fact we went for the cheapest option, Capricorn Hostel! Location: Excellent location, it's "around the corner" from the skilift and there is...

Good proximity to the lifts and the ski bus stop is right across the road with a 5 minute trip to the Laax resort base. The hostel staff are very helpful but are also happy for you to do your own thing. A nice, bright breakfast room with adequate breakfast of bread, cereal and fruit but I would have killed...

LAAX markets itself as the new home for snowboarders and Guschti certainly knows how to make you feel at home in his wonderful hostel. Not only is the Capricorn about a 10 minute walk from the main lifts up the mountain (and restaurants and bars), it is close to a COOP garage where you can buy those all important supplies...

I stayed in Capricorn with some friends for a short skiing break in Jan 2012. The hostel was a wonderful family run, cosy feel to it, and serves up a great breakfast every morning. It's in a good location, a short walk from the uber modern Laax resort, and far enough away not to be woken up by loud music...

Regarding the Hotel Capricorn (stayed 26-Mar-2010 – 8-Apr-2010): • The Capricorn’s owner, Gusti, probably should have never chosen an occupation in the hospitality business, as he almost has no feel for guest relations. He’s quite strict, but if you’re polite and not argumentative, you may get what you ask for. • Note that the Capricorn is not an actual hotel:...
