      Pay for what you get ”

      This is one of the worst hostels I’ve stayed in. The toilets are very dirty, it seems like no one cleaned or washed the shared toilets for years. I saw lice/insects running on the floor! The showers are located separately from the toilets. Likewise, the showers are unclean as well. Very filthy and dirty! The blankets make you feel itchy - and one of us has some sort of bed bugs bite after staying there. It is located about 15 mins by foot from the train station but near the cable car. Staff is okay, willing to help. But please save this hostel! It was really quite an experience.

      Terrible”

      I arrived the hostel after the check in time. I have got no keys and the room and the whole hostel can be enter and leave freely without any keys which is not secure. When I reached my room, the wooden floor kept producing noise and I have got no blanket and pillow on my bed! I was freezing for that night and I could only go to the tv room for the night! In addition, the room had a stinky smell which nearly made me vomit. Concerning the shower, the hot water cannot be stably provided. Sometimes it was a little bit cold and sometimes hot. The whole shower area was cold without heater. All in all, the price was cheap but the experience was terrible. I booked the hostel for two nights but I have to spend my first night in the tv room and half of the second night there as well. I would recommend not to arrive after the check in time so there will be someone to help if you really want to reserve it. Honestly, I regretted booking this hostel and would rather pay more for a better place.

      We had a private room. It wasn't anything special. There is not enough restroom for all the people and the reception was not helpful in anyway. You need to rent sheets. And they gave us no towels. I'd stay at a different hotel next time.

      price

      normally i prefer the cheapest hostel when i travel to the visiting town. this hotel is in zermatt where many people come to play ski. the price is cheaper comparing to the other hotels but it still expensive for me. the room quite very small and you need to walk down with spiral stair. this is very hard with carrying heavy luggage. the hostel is the place for only sleep.

      コスパ良くないけど、土地柄仕方ない”

      口コミを見て、覚悟していたより、水回り、部屋とも、清潔感があった。 特に、洗面台は、きれいだった。 テレビの部屋があり、冷蔵庫や湯沸かしポットや食器があり、ここでくつろいだり、買って来た物を食べられてよかった (駅前にリーズナブルなスーパーがある)。 キッチンはなく、自炊はできない。 ロッカーは木製で少し古い感じだけど、とても大容量でよかった(自分で南京錠を持っていかないと鍵はない) チェックアウト後に、テレビの部屋に無料で荷物を置かせてもらえて助かった。 駅から徒歩15分位で、道順を見て近くまでは来れているのに、なかなか見つからず、だいぶ歩き回った。 結局レストランの人に聞いて、辿り着けた。 わからなかったら、すぐ聞いた方が良いです。 駅からは少し遠いけど、ロープウェーの駅までは近いです(前の道を登っていくだけ) シャワーのお湯がぬるく、夏でも朝晩は肌寒いので、シャワーが冷たかった。 早い時間に済ませる事をお勧めします。 設備等を考えると、割高感があるけど、ツェルマットは人気の観光地で、安宿が少ないので、ここに泊まれて本当に助かった。 また、キャンプ場の山小屋を思い出して、とても懐かしく、テレビの部屋なども懐かしい雰囲気で、私的には居心地がよかった。
