Davos Hostel

Hostel Davos

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Location, location, location. This is a gem of a youth hostel in one of the most spectacular locations in Switzerland. Once a sanatorium, the building then became a spa hotel before being transformed into the youth hostel it is today. At the foot of the Parsennbahn-funicular which gives guests access to the vast skiing and hiking areas of the Alps, the hostel is also directly in front of the ski runs and a high-altitude hiking trail.
But it doesn’t matter what time of year you visit Davos because in the summer there is still plenty to do for groups. Biking groups will be spoilt for choice with more than 1500km of trails on the doorstep and if you enjoy sailing, then why not get out onto Lake Davos to practice?
Almost all the rooms come with an own bath and toilette. All the rooms facing in direction to the south additionally provide a balcony. A buffet breakfast is offered every morning. Dinner and packed lunches are available on request.
