Sleep at the foot of the mighty Viertausend, down in the valley of the 13 stars, where wine and Mediterranean fruit is grown and the jolly Valais folk meet in the Carnotzet to enjoy a glass of wine. Sitten in German or Sion in French, the capital of the Valais, happily sees itself as the centre of the world. Or at least the Alpine world. And the modern, centrally-located youth hostel is an ideal sports and leisure post from which to discover the whole of the Valais.
The concrete, steel and glass architecture of Sion youth hostel is pleasing to the eye and also provides an effective contrast to the typical wooden chalets of the Valais. And life inside the youth hostel has something to offer as well: the lounge and dining areas are spacious and open-plan, the sleeping quarters are furnished with a sensible number of beds and most have their own balcony and the hostel's showers and wash-rooms are of a modern standard. In Summer, the lovely garden terrace, far away from the hubbub and hectic pace of everyday life, and the meadow are inviting places to enjoy some small-talk or play a game with guests from all over the world.
