The staff is very cultured and supportive. The location of the property is amazing, probably the best sceneries I have ever seen with mountain, greenery, flowers and beautiful lake. You can just sit there all day with cup of tea or coffee and enjoy the view. I loved the kayaking in the lake and enjoyed photography in the locality. The... More

The best thing about this hostel is its location, amazingly beautiful!! A dreamy stay!! Imagine a house on the lake and when you open your window or sit in a balcony in the morning, with a cup of tea/coffee you have a beautiful lake, mountains and a rising sun in front of you. I couldn't imagine any better morning that... More

This place is great. We booked a twin room with a balcony, but when we turned up it was just a double bed which sucked. But we got moved to another room for the night, then they moved us to one round the back for our last night, so no big deal. They serve really cheap food downstairs (microwave stuff)... More

How to get there: It was raining heavily when we reached interlaken ost station around 7.30 pm, and we were lucky to be able to catch the last bus to iseltwald at 8 pm. I would suggest planning to arrive at interlaken no later than that as getting a taxi would be super expensive. Iseltwald itself is a lovely little... More

It is so special place that you have to visit and see it for yourself. Great view at lake in the morning makes you to wake up and clean your eyes to see that beauty. Old-fashioned wardrobe and balcony door just take you to better old times. Ladies from hostel are taking very good care about the place and prepare... More

We loved this hostel! It had a rustic, cottage-y, home-y feel. The view from this place is breathtaking. The real selling point for us backpackers on a budget was the free bus pass we were given. Not only is it a bus pass but it is also a discount card for some things. We rented a kayak for 10CHF, it... More

Lake Lodge Hostel is the best money can buy you in Interlaken, and probably all of Switzerland. Heck, a 2 nights stay here costed less than the train ticket to get here. While the location is a little remote, with the amount of money you save you can actually afford to do something in the crazy expensive country of Switzerland.... More

This hostel is situated in a beautiful spot in Switzerland, in a small town of Iseltwald - 30 mins on a bus from Interlaken. The views which surround this hostel are breathtaking. Unfortunately my partner and I didn't have the best stay at this hostel. We were given bunk beds which was very annoying to sleep in. The duvet and... More

Charming budget hostel on the shores of Lake Brienerzee. Ideal place to stay for a family or small group. There's a common kitchen and dining room and a basic continental breakfast provided. Really nice place to meet and get to know fellow travellers. Very friendly and helpful staff as well. Can leave door or window open if more fresh air... More

The only great thing about this place was the view. It's absolutely stunning. Located in a nice quiet town. We had a room in the first floor, there was no AC & it was so stuffy. I understand having no AC but there was no kind of airflow in these rooms whatsoever. We woke up in the middle of the... More
