Near to the train station, Interlaken West. Also near to the shop and restaurant. Room for 4 quiet crowded. Unfriendly staff, possible not from Swiss. Old building, required renovation. Wall socket in the room not functioning. Should improve the lighting.

This place was chosen for cost and location to Interlaken West train station Location: A quick walk from the station, the town itself is very small. Easy walk to the main strip of restaurants, supermarket and close to the canal for a great jog. Rooms: Very small, old and basic facilities, 4 person dorm room had an ensuite. The wifi... More

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
