Liked: Great breakfast, especially considering that Switzerland is on the expensive side. Also, good facilities in the kitchen is helpful if you want to cook your own food.

Disliked: The wifi works only in the lobby and not in the rooms, which is bad considering we plan for the next day in the nights.

The property's response is

Dear Rohan

Thank you for your email. Swiss law does not allow half price on happy hour. We are allowed to sell it cheaper but not 2 for one.
kind regards

Liked: We stayed in the "flat", which was an apartment style accommodation. Loved having the kitchen and living room right there. The breakfast was AMAZING, the best of our trip. Loved the movie nights and the maximum space to hang out. Big feather duvets made the beds nice and comfy. All the employees were nice and helpful.

Disliked: The communal kitchen was generally messy all the time, due to the number of people using it. Only when another hosteller took the time did it get cleaned up.

Liked: Location was good and it has the possibility of having a good social atmosphere with the bar area

Disliked: Wifi only in main building. If guests beds were made already they wouldn't see the mattresses which were a bit off-putting. Although staff were good to us, they required a fair bit of pressing for advice and tips (which they actually knew quite a lot of). As nice as it is that they are laid back, they came across as lazy and lacking care factor

Liked: The only thing I like (not about the hostel really) is, due to the irresponsible staff, the stayers in this hostel are helpful to each other.

Disliked: I checked in pretty late, at around 8pm. I followed the Google Map to locate myself exactly where the hostel is, but I could not see the hostel, just see a building called "hotel Falken". Although the word "Falken" is special, I could not be sure this "hotel" is the "hostel" I am looking for. But, it is.The owner of the hostel left already, leaving the keys to me and three Korean ladies. The lockers in the room has no back - I mean, you can lock it, but if one moves the locker a bit, he can steal everything in the locker from the back.I chatted with a girl, and she said the staff is unwilling to keep the luggage when she goes up Jungfraujoch.
