Matterhorn Hostel

Hostel in Zermatt

Tucked in a 1960s wooden chalet a two-minute walk from the lifts, this cramped hostel wrapped around several staircases sits above busy ground-floor bar with grub, Sparky's. High-season rates apply the last fortnight in December and at Easter – rates drop around 40% outside these times. Mixed dorms veer on the small, dark side. Optional extras of buffet breakfast/towel/sheets cost Sfr8/2/3.50.
