Liked: the view is breathtaking - they have wonderful yellow lounge chairs to lie in with a view of the mountains. Staff are very personable and its nice to be helped by the actual hostel owner. You are not a number at this hostel. So so so clean too (everywhere) and the kitchen - feels like you are a professional chef!!!

Apart form the sking we had gone to Lauterbrunnen to celebrate the 50th birthday of a friend and the icing on the cake was his Chalet was only a 100yds away.

Liked: Quite a nice place to come for a day or 2, rooms were cosy and the views were really good

Disliked: We paid for a 'private double' and when we arrived we got 2 single beds pushed together, we could have paid less for a twin and done that ourselves! Also the sheets were not very clean
