I came to Laax by way of chance, on a recommendation, a whim and a few bucks. Guschtie and the Capricorn staff not only welcomed my brother and I with open arms, they also happily gave us more info than we could ever have asked for. As a result, we spent 48 hours doing some of the most awesome and... More

As plant biologist I spend a considerable time every from spring to fall up the mountains doing research. I work where you guys make holidays. As the days are long and the working load heavy, we are always happy to return to the Capricorn in the evening. Guschti is a great guy, that has been helpful always as troubles in... More

We planned a short holiday in Laax and needed a cheap and cheerfull place to stay. As for usual, spending more money, doesn't automatically mean the quality of the place will improve at the same rate. Hence the fact we went for the cheapest option, Capricorn Hostel! Location: Excellent location, it's "around the corner" from the skilift and there is... More

Good proximity to the lifts and the ski bus stop is right across the road with a 5 minute trip to the Laax resort base. The hostel staff are very helpful but are also happy for you to do your own thing. A nice, bright breakfast room with adequate breakfast of bread, cereal and fruit but I would have killed... More

LAAX markets itself as the new home for snowboarders and Guschti certainly knows how to make you feel at home in his wonderful hostel. Not only is the Capricorn about a 10 minute walk from the main lifts up the mountain (and restaurants and bars), it is close to a COOP garage where you can buy those all important supplies... More

I stayed in Capricorn with some friends for a short skiing break in Jan 2012. The hostel was a wonderful family run, cosy feel to it, and serves up a great breakfast every morning. It's in a good location, a short walk from the uber modern Laax resort, and far enough away not to be woken up by loud music... More

Regarding the Hotel Capricorn (stayed 26-Mar-2010 – 8-Apr-2010): • The Capricorn’s owner, Gusti, probably should have never chosen an occupation in the hospitality business, as he almost has no feel for guest relations. He’s quite strict, but if you’re polite and not argumentative, you may get what you ask for. • Note that the Capricorn is not an actual hotel:... More

We had been there for 2 nights in a double bed room. last night another friend joined us and it was no problem to get a mattress with bedding and bath towels.

We were worried about booking at this hotel after the reviews we read. But we were pleasantly suprised at how great it was. Our room was big, and clean with a lovely balcony. The Breakfast was alright, but all you need when your main aim is to get out onto the slopes early. The bar downstairs is funky and the... More
