Welcome to Chur. JBN is the first Backpacker-hotel in the canton's capital. The 'JBN' combines 45 beds, an Espresso bar and a sports bar to an uncomplicated 'Cheap and Chic'-house.

'JBN' offers low priced and amiable overnight stays - without appearing cheap. The hotel consists of a mass accommodation, rooms with several beds, and a suite. Breakfast is included in all of the rooms, except the 17 bed dormitory.

In the heart of Chur's nightlife, the 'JBN' is located between restaurants, bars, clubs and even a bowling alley.

Besides the low priced accommodation possibilities, you will find the in-house coffee bar with a variety of snacks and a smaller selection of meals.

With our partner bars and restaurants such as the Beer bar Toms Beer Box, the cocktailbar Schall und Rauch and the Restaurant Frohsinn we can offer you a memorable stay in Switzerlands most charming town.

You left the mainstation and you see on the right side the Postcenter.

You walk upwards to the street Engadinerstrasse'. You follow this street till the end. There you walk over a bridge and then you a crossroad.

There you turn to the right, and then you walk in to the Welschdrfli'. Just walk straight on and after 2 or 3 minutes you see the hotel. It is the house with the number 19 and it is on the left street side.

Located Near

The 'JBN' is located in the heart of Chur. With clubs, bars and restaurant its just a second away from Chur's nightlife area.

Also there is a building of Peter Zumthor, a well known architekt just around the corner. And the hostel is near to some interesting architecture work from architects like the Olgiatis or Mario Botta.

10 minutes away from the train station and with a bus station around the corner, the hostel is perfectly located to do daily trips to the mountains. There you can go biking, hiking, skiing, snowboarding or just enjoying the view.
