It was a nice hostel with a good, quiet environment. What I enjoyed best was probably the location because it was next to this beautiful river. There is a computer for you to use. There are showers in each room but also extra ones in the hallways. Everything was pretty okay. The bathroom was a small size. There are lockers... More

Stayed for 4 nights at this backpacker, nice clean comfortable, friendly service. If you are planing for budget holiday to Swiss then this is perfect place to stay in. Perfect location near to all amenities like super market,high street and railway station.

The hostel is easy to find from the Interlaken train station. It has a well-equipped kitchen where we finished off our Italian prosciutto pasta. Having a kitchen is very practical in Switzerland because meals at restaurants cost a fortune. Rooms are old and beds are just...hostel quality. Although everything was clean. They offer free breakfast which is nice.

This is a hostel/hotel and I had a solo room but a shared bathroom. The room is incredibly tiny and cramped and the shower room is hardly even a room. It's a cutout in the wall. The WC are a bit uncomfortable and weird to flush. Overall just not very impressed with my stay here. They do have a good... More

I stayed here while travelling Europe for 2 days and found it to be a small cozy place for backpackers. The rooms have bunk beds so don't expect anything more. The front desk has offers for discounts on many of the activities in the area and gave us a free travelers card that allowed us to take the bus for... More

One of the *worst* hotel (if it can even be called that) experiences. Don't go by the professional photographs they have posted on the websites. The rooms are small, dark and dingy. And the bathroom was absolutely filthy! The room for 4 was so cramped that we could not even fit in our luggage (4 small roll-ons). Don't waste your... More

Actually, this hotel is located in Unterseen, not in Interlaken. But it takes about 10 minutes on foot to get to the center of Interlaken. The rooms are quite clean and cozy. Unexpected thing happened after we came back to the hotel next afternoon. We found all our stuff next door to our room. We asked hotel manager what's going... More

The room was pretty decent (nothing much to write of) , the wash basin tap was faulty and water kept on dripping, the bath was very small, only issue was that the room was very cold as the room heaters seemed to be set to...
