About Mountain Hostel
The Mountain Hostel was built in 1563, it was occupied by two families which kept cows and goats in the basement and lived in the building above which was split into two.
It remained a farming home for hundreds of years until its purpose was changed in 1939 when Lina Von Allmen converted the building to a hostel and its purpose has remained the same until today. We (Petra and Walter) took over the business in 1996 and put our heart and soul renovating it to its current charming yet modest state.
The Mountain Hostel is located in the Als of Switzerland and offers private and dorms rooms with breathtaking rooms.
