We run a hostel in a small mountain village in the Swiss Alps. Myself (Merin) and my wife (Gemma) have been here in Gryon, Switzerland for more than 5 years, managing and growing our backpackers hostel. We first arrived for a six month climbing trip and couldn't leave.

Our hostel is in an authentic Swiss Chalet and has both private and dormitory rooms along with many common areas to accommodate our guests. Many people stay here because of our close proximity to all of the mountain activities. During the winter months there is skiing/snowboarding at a nearby resort and during the summer there is hiking, climbing and mountain biking. We love and participate in nearly all of the activities the Swiss Alps have to offer.

Our hostel is a pretty relaxed backpackers hostel. Our guests are usually a mix outdoor enthusiasts, individuals traveling Europe, small groups and families. It is a pretty chill place. We are not a party hostel and the mountains are more of a draw to our guests th... more inside
