Easy bus ride from Interlaken, located in a cute town right off of this beautiful lake surrounded by mountains. I enjoyed my stay here the staff was very friendly. I stayed in a private room but it was a shared bathroom. There is a kayak rental available it was wonderful to spend the day kayaking & hiking. Perfect for time... More

I missed the 1st night as I was late to reach Interlaken though I had the swiss travel pass. So I reached the next night as our booking was active. As soon as we reached, our problem was instantly solved by the very cooperative staff. I was not expecting a wooden house, which was the click point for us. U... More

I was surprised by some of the negative reviews I just read about this place. It depends on what you want. If you want hotel quality service, go to a hotel. For a hostel, this was everything I could ask for. Great people, good community area, amazing staff, and an incredible location with free bus to Interlaken on the hour.... More

We went to Switzerland this summer, had intended to stay in Interlaken, but too noisy, so we chose this place not far from Interlaken. You can take the bus arrives, the scenery is very beautiful, has a great kitchen, you can cook together, but no supermarket nearby, I went to Interlaken to buy things, and the staff are very friendly...

Lakelodge hostel is a little far off from Interlaken(Takes 30 minutes to reach Interlaken). The building is very old and there are no lifts. Our private room was on the 3rd floor and we had to carry our luggage to the top every time, which was a pain. The building is small and congested and the bad smell of the... More

This hostel was perfect, it was a very relaxed environment and felt like a cozy home. The bathrooms are very clean and large. The owner is a sweetheart and gives great advice on all the fun things to do in the area. It's also in a beautiful village just a 20 minute bus ride from interlaken. And better yet, it's... More

Expensive place, extremely noisy, not worth a penny (if it wasn't for the view only a few rooms have the privilege of...anyways). The breakfast we ordered and paid for the night before consisted of three-months-expired (!) butter, 10 days expired yogurt and anything but fresh croissants. We got our money back for the bfast but the morning overall was very... More

After 2 nights stay i got bitten all over by body and had to pay 50 swiss france more for medicines. That is more tgan double of the price of the hostel for 2 nights. If... More

After reading some of the 'poor' reviews I'm a bit stunned that you would expect a hostel to provide toiletries, towels and not be noisy! This is our 1 St experience in a hostel and I can honestly say it was an amazing experience! The views are stunning, the hostel is clean, we had a private room for 3 with... More

Lake Lodge itself is relatively simple and what you would expect. The kitchen facilities can get a little hectic around meal time and measures could be taken to deal with the flies. Every room has a balcony with either a view of the mountain or a view of the lake. The lake itself is stunning and there are plenty of... More
