Liked: The dorm rooms were spacious

Disliked: The place is lacking character a lot. It's a rather ugly barracks aimed at school groups. The walls are covered with instructions how to behave, don't do this, don't do that. Common room has all these nice pieces of entertainment from pinball machines and game consoles to a pool table. The thing is though that everything works by inserting few coins. Really? The common room was basically empty the whole time.

Liked: The property is maintained and kept clean. The rooms are definitely a value for money. They are spacious and comfortable. The breakfast spread, the games room are pretty good. Overall a very organized hostel.

Disliked: While wash basins within the room is very much appreciated but I wish there were more toilets and showers given the no. of rooms.

Liked: We stayed at Grindelwald for one day as a base for going up to the First and to the Jungfrau railway. The lodge is 10min walk from the train station and 10min walk from First cable car terminal which is very good location.The staff welcomed us friendly and helped us book paragliding! The hostel offered discount for First and jungfrau tickets! The room was comfy and cozy and all the facilities were very good. The kitchen had everything we need, clean and well equipped. We woke late for the breakfast but they kindly served us with cereal and bread which we appreciated a lot (and sorry for that!)Good living experience with budget acommondation which add colour to our trip in Swiss! recommend!
