Dorm Bed: $52.11
Staldenweg 5 ,
This large hostel with private rooms and dorms of varying sizes offers an amazing view of the Matterhorn. The Youthhostel Zermatt is modern and comfortable, with amenities that any traveler would want or need.
Most rooms have sinks, and some private rooms also have ensuite bathrooms, making this establishment more like a bed and breakfast for those who wish to stay in style. For the dorms, all-female and all-male dorm options are available in addition to mixed dorms. The atmosphere is quiet but social, as multiple common rooms, a game room, and the dining hall allow for socializing with other guests. The hostel is family-friendly and welcomes larger groups, too. In the winter, the ski room and ski storage area is great for those who arrive with gear.
Free breakfast is included with every room type, and other meals can be purchased as well. (Unfortunately, this hostel does not have a kitchen available for guests). Free Wi-Fi is also available, as are linens. Towel rental, laundry, luggage storage, and other amenities are also available for guests.
The hostel is a 15-minute walk from the train station, or faster if you take the cable car and an electric bus.
Guest reviews give this hostel high marks for pretty much everything, especially the views. Many guests note that a fairly large number of families stay at this hostel.
