Welcome to our hostel

Be one of the first groups to experience this state of the art hostel in Gstaad-Saanen.

The list of facilities and the location of this modern chalet-style building is superb. In the heart of this picture postcard Swiss town, we are sure that this one will become one of our favourite hostels.

With unrivalled views of the mountains – open the curtains and see the slopes - surrounding the small town, the hostel is a perfect destination for all groups looking to enjoy the winter sports on offer. Access to the Eggli ski area is within reach of the village.

But things don’t stop in the summer - life moves into the open air. The hostel provides garden tables and recliners with a view of the mountains. Perfect for taking a deep breath and recharging your batteries! Parents are not neglected, either. To allow them to unwind and relax, there is a playground and a games area for the youngest guests, while table tennis, billiards and table football provide amusement and a place to meet new friends.

So don’t waste any time. Make your enquiry to stay at this superb, brand new hostel now.
