How we’re dealing with the coronavirus

Measures and protection concept – your health is extremely important for us​​

The health of our guests, employees and fellow human beings is extremely important for us. Accordingly, we developed and implemented a protection concept which is constantly adapted to the current situation:

  • A smile says more than a handshake – that is why we do not shake hands.
  • Disinfection stations are available in all youth hostels.
  • Common contact points are cleaned and disinfected several times a day.
  • The tables in the dining room and in the lobby/bar are generously spaced.
  • Our employees carefully follow all recommendations and obligatory measures of the Federal Office of Public Health FOPH.
  • We offer web check-in service. This reduces and accelerates the on-site registration procedure to an absolute minimum and helps reduce the contact with our reception staff. Contactless payment is preferred.

The hostels overview provides you with the latest information about which hostels are open and their reception times. You can always reach us by e-mail or telephone.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Protection concept of the Swiss Youth Hostels

More information about our current protection concept

Clean & Safe

The Swiss Youth Hostels take special measures to protect our guests and ensure that they have a pleasant stay in Switzerland. The «Clean & Safe» campaign is supported by Switzerland Tourism.

  • Protection during the stay in all service areas.
  • Security in all catering areas.
  • Security around seminars.
  • Protection in the wellness and spa area, to allow guests to use the swimming pools, saunas or steam baths.

Corona solidarity campaign

In the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, tourism is among the hardest hit industries. Swiss Youth Hostels are also suffering from huge losses of revenue. We count on the solidarity of all our members and guests to ensure that we can continue to offer more than 50 environmentally friendly and social youth hostels throughout Switzerland at affordable prices and to keep around 500 staff members employed. We use your contribution exclusively to cover losses. Many thanks!
