All the hotels in Engelberg are more expensive than Engelberg Youth Hostel. Everything is very clean so I really liked that. The owners are really friendly You have to bring your own towels and you have to make up your own bed with sheets from them. The breakfast is good, nothing special but good, All the double rooms are separed...

The hostel is located a short walk from the train station. Location is okay and everything can easily be reached on foot. We walked to the Titlis cable car station, local COOP supermarket, etc. The hostel was quiet (we were there on the Easter weekend in 2014). There is no communal kitchen and no cooking is allowed in the room....

I spend here one night, and although it was a nice hostel the wifi didn't worked at all (although that's written on the website). Also when I came at the room it was obvious they don't clean/look at the rooms really well. I was lucky to be not the last person in the room, since the last bed didn't had...

4 of us stayed here last September whilst walking the Alpen Pass Route across Switzerland. A comfortable stay in a very quiet hostel at this time - all the kids back at school. Good facilities and all clean and tidy. Convenient location for the town. Good option if on budget - we had room to ourselves which was modern and...

We made a reservation for 8 people in this place for a Saturday night, before we went on our trip to Iglu Dorf. Though each room accommodated 6 persons , on request, the people in-charge have made arrangements for 2 additional mattresses. The hosts were friendly and had a constant smile on their faces. The rooms were clean, and fresh....

We stayed here while hiking across Switzerland on the Via Alpina. In Engelberg, most lodging is either Belle Epoche hotels or modern chain hotels. For hikers, the Jugendherberge is the best budget choice. The facility itself is class Swiss chalet style, with trees and a pleasant yard. However, it is located quite a ways from downtown Engelberg, in a dreary...

This is a friendly, well-run hostel and a great place to stay. The hostel is just outside the centre of the village, about ten minutes' easy walk from the railway station. It's located on a quiet street where the only noise is the sound of cowbells in the pastures above. The building is an old, traditional Swiss chalet but it...

My friend and I stayed here 1 night in June as a break between Paris and Rome. We were the only guests in this cute hostel, besides all the goats outside. The hostel was clean and run by a family. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. Overall, our time in Engelberg was a much needed break after Paris!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
From the River Aa in Engelberg - the "Angel's Mountain" - to the "end of the world". Is this your idea of holiday? Then the angel of the mountains, or "Bergengel", will grant your wish! And the more unusual, the better. How about hurtling downhill on a mountain tricycle? Or a cable car ride up to the magnificent panorama? Or quite simply the rugged, blue beauty of the mountains? Enjoy the caress of an angel's wings as you spend the night in the youth hostel. ... more   less
