Welcome to the wellnessHostel4000

Welcome to the wellnessHostel4000

A world first for the glacier village of Saas-Fee, conceived in the innovative tradition of the pioneers of Alpinism and realised with an eagerness for breaking new ground, the hostel combines the typical laidback ambiance and low prices of a Youth Hostel with the exacting requirements of modern wellness and fitness facilities. Here contemporary architecture, easy-going hospitality, sustainability as a way of life and high quality aspirations make up an offering whose informal style unites guests from all over the world. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

restaurant4000 – fresh and regional

Laid-back and relaxed is the theme when eating here: delicious meals, always freshly prepared, can be enjoyed either on the sunny terrace or in the restaurant with its magnificent view of the mountains.


This cool lounge is the centrepiece of the hostel – the place to meet up with friends old and new for tempting Alpine tapas, refreshing lassis (fruit/milk drinks) or an aperitif around the cosy open fire.

Young and sporting

In addition to the sport and leisure facilities with swimming pool, saunas and a gym, sports groups and clubs will also discover a seminar infrastructure and cuisine aimed at sports enthusiasts, making it the perfect environment with a great atmosphere for sports and training camps. The cable car valley station is a short four minute walk away.

Innovative and sustainable

The new wellnessHostel4000 is the first five-storey “hotel” to be built in Switzerland using timber construction. The building re-interprets the local barn style in contemporary architectural language and will be a model for the future. The highest environmental standards will be employed in its construction and operation, resulting in a building that fulfils the Minergie Eco standard and is connected to the local solar district heating system to meets its heating needs.

Calm and contentment for body and mind define the atmosphere in the wellness area; saunas, steam bath, “navel stone” and more, the hostel invites you to enjoy relaxing interludes in a lavishly equipped setting. Enjoy the free teas and let the panoramic view of the surrounding mountains inspire you.

In the indoor swimming pool, the emphasis is on sport and fun. Whether training in the 25-metre pool, regeneration in the whirlpool and on the outdoor terrace or family fun in the children’s pool and on the water slide – activity is the theme here.

In the fitness centre, the focus is on strength and endurance. State-of-the-art Nautilus equipment allows professional and recreational athletes to achieve diverse, systematic and efficient training.

Rounding off the programme is an extensive range of massages.
