In Sion, our youth hostel greets you the moment you get off the train! Thanks to its proximity to the station, it's known locally as being on platform zero.

Sion

Valais

Above all, our guests appreciate the warm welcome, the cosy garden terrace, the diverse breakfast buffet and the hostel's sensational value for money. Stay at the foot of mighty 4000-metre peaks and marvel at the unique landscape with its fortified hills. Two medieval castles tower above Sion and are considered symbols of the town. This cultural town has excellent public transport connections, affording you quick access to the enchanting side valleys and the surrounding skiing areas. If you enjoy hiking, you can follow the typical Suonen (old irrigation channels) or take a walk through vineyards.
