The hostel was great and had all the features of an amazing hostel but we didn't stay during peak period so there was only one other guest in the whole hostel. This was good in terms of meaning me and my two friends had a 10 share room to ourselves but it meant the hostel had no atmosphere whatsoever. The... More

This was a great hostel to stay in. I had three friends with me and we loved it. They had a place to pay pool, for a minimal fee, and the kitchen was good. Had the hostel mostly to ourselves because it was winter but not yet ski season, but the staff were helpful and friendly. Even made a friend... More

The only thing that kept this hostel from getting one star was the fact that the rooms weren't terribly small and they seemed to be clean for the most part. HOWEVER, the rest of the hostel is a different story. The bathrooms smelled HORRIFIC, breakfast was supposedly included but in actuality it was just bread and butter and you had... More

Absolutely loved this hostel...from waking up in the morning to the amazing view of the Swiss alps to the really friendly staff..I can't really complain about anything. The building itself is lovely and charming and the community feel was great...got to meet many other travelers while having breakfast or just chilling in the courtyard...highly recommended!

My favorite hostel to date. The staff is super helpful and friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the architecture and atmosphere are so charming. Morning breakfast was simple, with coffee, toast, and cereal available. There is nightlife nearby and a slew of restaurants to choose from. TONS of outdoor activities around the area are available for free or... More

English speaking stuffs, good breakfast and they will give you free city bus pass. There is a pub on the hostel and many more around it. We booked a twin room and it was very clumsy and roadside facing, so eventually we couldn’t sleep most of the night as people were shouting on the roads. You’ll find the good bike/motorcycle...

This hostel is very well situated between the railway stations-Interlaken Ost and West. The bus takes just 5-10mins to reach the hostel. The bus stop is just outside the hostel.The rooms and beds were clean. They had a water basin inside the room. The room size was small but enough to crash on the bed after roaming around for the...

The hostel gave great directions coming from either train station to find it, the receptionist was ready and more than happy to let the 6 of us (traveling college students) split it evenly. Our room was great and we had it to ourself. WiFi worked everywhere! Beds were very warm and comfortable. For both full days that we were there... More
