Hostel Living!
Great hostel in heart of Interlaken. Very attentive and friendly staff! Lots of room to cook in the three kitchens. Our family of 4 was very comfortable in the 4 person room. Close to everything so you can walk everywhere.

Poor 2.0
Bad experience.
The check out day male staff was very very rude and had not clue of customer service and I complaint about his rudeness, he start arguing with me that it’s not rude. Simply they have no idea about customer service. Beds were not comfortable and was hot and noisy in the rooms, no air or even no fan .

Great Stay
Enjoyed my stay in Interlaken. The staff were really friendly and knowledgeable about great hikes in the area. The beds were comfy and clean. The beds had their own power outlet. Each room has it’s own toilet and sink. Overall, great stay!

One of the best hostels ever
We were looking for accommodation two days before arriving so we had low expectations, however this hostel is amazing and a lot better than most Hotels we have stayed in. Great facilities (playing areas, kitchen, lounges) and super clean
Markos, gb1 night romance trip
Very Good 8.0
It’s a comfortable hostel having free breakfast, free laundry facilities, towels (but no air conditioning). However, I felt a little noisy as I can hear other guests slamming the doors in the early morning

Great unforgivable experience, we truly love this place. A bit of walk from either train station, overall a great facility and helpful staff.
