This is a very nice and friendly place for backpackers on a short or extended stay. Set in an amazing location with beautiful views all around. Pleasant city but quite expensive for those on a budget. Great atmosphere particularly for young people and would stay here again.

There is a great atmosphere and an awesome reggae band playing. The kitchen was off the hook. I'm not scared of falling off the bed and it's really comfy. The weather is rubbish but its still beautiful. We love interlaken! Its really convenient for every thing and great value.

Me and my friends were on a trip around Europe, where we looked for cheap campings or hostels. The Balmer's Village Tent is the best option because of its amazing views, good atmosphere with the staff ang good prices. For me a good point was the great wifi connection and the bbq available for the clients. I do really recomend... More

My friends and me were on Interrail. Very good staff and excellent attention. They had a good wi-fi connection and a supermarket near there. Recommendable 100%. Good price-quality relation There is a very good atmosphere and there is a bus station in front of the tents. There is a good connection with Interlaken and the other villages near there

We spent one night in a private tent. The tent was large and a comfortable bed. The facilities are very basic, no restaurant or kitchen facilities (only a microwave to heat food). Unfortunately, we had very bad weather and incessant rain on the day we stayed. So we were left feeling pretty cold at night and could not enjoy the... More

Gets the job done. Pretty good value for money. Friendly staff. Has a clean hot tub and pool and warm showers. People we met here were cool. Near some awesome hiking trails. The only problem was the laundry mat was at the other location about 2 miles away, but if you don't need laundry than its not a problem. Bed... More

Fun place to stay. Pretty good price and adds a little extra adventure to the trip. It actually rained during our trip which was less than ideal, that being said sleeping in the tent in the rain was kinda cool. Not too far out of the way, you can easily walk to the main hostel if you want. Bar closes... More

We were a little unlucky with the weather but everything else about the Tent Village was amazing. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends if they were staying in Interlaken. The tents were well set up and the beds were very comfortable. We didn't have a problem sleeping even in the rain we had our first night.
