Our stay was simply fabulous for a Youth Hostel, and we'd like to thank the YH Pontresina team for their superb offer and service. We had rooms with two twin beds (can be used as a double) plus two bunk beds. We loved that we could keep the window open at night for the cool mountain air and to hear the river and in the morning the birds. The continental breakfast buffet had lots of choices, and the dinner (CHF 17, with soup, salad buffet, regular/vegetarian main course, dessert) was not only amazingly inexpensive but very good. With advance notice, the request for a gluten-free option was readily accommodated. Water was freely available with meals, and we were allowed to bring our own bottle of wine with a small corkage fee (wine and beer are also available). The free use of regional transit including gondolas etc. (included in stays of two or more nights) was worth about as much as we paid for the stay, which is an incredible deal. The Youth Hostel is right next to the train station and bus stop, very convenient.
The number of bathrooms per floor is low, though that is difficult to change. There are wash basins in the rooms to brush your teeth etc., and the showers are separate, so this helps. Be aware that there is no elevator available for guests, hence you'll need to carry your luggage up one or two floors. This was not an issue for us but it is good to know.
The breakfast was amazing. Fresh, local cheeses, breads etc all labelled plus an unlimited supply of coffee/juice/fruit etc. The management couple, Martin and Sabine, could not have been more welcoming. We soon felt part of a family and kept returning. They were very generous, allowing us to store our stuff in a locker while we went up the mountain to climb the peaks, and they did all our washing for us for a small extra fee. We loved coming 'home'. If you want to explore the area you cant beat the location, right next to trains and buses. Everything was spotlessly clean and comfortable.
Staff very friendly, clean, good athmospher
