We stayed for one night in a 4 bedded room ( bunk beds). It is very basic but comfortable and ideal if you only want to sleep there. It's about a 5 minute walk from the cable car and practically next to the mountain train. Breakfast was adequate with a small selection of cereals, cheese , bread and drinks.

Most wunderful place for a basic budget stay. Friendly stuff and the sunshine made a perfect weekend. Balcony is worth an upgrade. For dinner the chef freshly cooks the famous cordonbleu. The vally is definetly a must see when visiting switzerland.

Adrenalin is an easy walk just around the corner from the funicular and just a few steps from the grocery store and bakery. My husband and I booked a double room which had a bathroom en suite which was important to us. That feature is rare in most hostels. Adrenalin was very clean, and Marcus and his staff were quite...
