When looking for a family hotel in Switzerland you probably consider two things: the price and the family friendly factor. Not easy, isn’t it? Unless you think about an alternative, for example, a family hostel! We just had a splendid weekend with kids in Scuol at Schweizer Jugendherbergen hostel and discovered an easygoing, convenient and affordable way to travel as a family.
City tour in Scuol, Swiss National Park, Bärenweg, wine and sausage testing, great people and the most behaved kids 💖 all we had to experience at @swissyouthhostels #EngadinScuolSamnaun on our #pressereise, so we cannot wait to tell you all about it soon on our blog! . #travelwithkids #swissalps #visitswitzerland #familieaktivitet #familytravel #travellingram #familienausflug #travellingkids #familyfirstswitzerland #familienhotel #familyhotel
Swiss Youth Hostel is well known for a convenient sleeping accommodation for young people, school groups, families or other budget travellers. There are 52 locations in Switzerland and they all have different rates and accommodation conditions. The Schweizer Jugendherbergen hostel in Scuol is categorised as Top. It`s very well located and has a cool modern architecture.
Nevertheless, it`s affordable. There are flat rates for kids, so a family with 2 children can expect to pay around CHF 160/night for a private room with toilet and shower. If you need a baby bed, you can have it totally free of charge!
What we absolutely loved about staying in the hostel is that it`s super sociable and kids friendly. There are toys and books, and several common areas where children different ages can run and play together, and burn some needed energy off. Its laid-back atmosphere helps kids to make new friends easily. Our 5yo said that besides bunk beds making friends was the best part of the trip!
The area of Scoul in Engadin is stunning and has so much to offer (90 different activities)! Here are just a few pictures from our family trip to Scuol and a really cool stay at Schweizer Jugendherbergen hostel. What a weekend! Thank you, Schweizer Jugendherbergen for organising this wonderful trip!
