This hostel was one of the best I stayed in my two weeks in Europe. The beds were very comfortable and they give you super warm blankets because the nights can get cold. The wifi worked well in the main area but not so much in the rooms which was not a big deal. Showers are hot. Free tea at... More

Beds aren't great, and exposed to the weather. Cheap and cheerful and good for social side of backpacking. Also has a good hot tub and barbecue, but all dependant on the weather. I would recommend getting a private tent or a deluxe tent as they have locking doors, our dorm room we couldn't lock for the whole day out (... More

The tent village is surrounded by the alps, close to the train station and has a fun little bar and when we went there was live music you also can grill out because they provide grills and good for families and backpackers! Also there is a hot tub which is a plus!

We stayed here for two nights and it is a great place if you like camping and hostels etc. the staff are lovely and it's very laid back with nice areas to chill in and a bar. Showers were clean with hot water. Toilets were pretty manky by the end of the night but were clean during the day. It's... More

We stayed at the Tent Village for two nights. It's nothing glamorous but the private tents are decent sized and the beds are not that bad. It was pouring rain while we were there and it did not leak. There is a BBQ which we used after grabbing some food from the grocery store across the street. The fridge is... More

If you're looking for a camping experience, but without dragging your own tent, then this is the place. We are not campers and so cannot comment on how this place compares to other camping styles, but for city folk looking for something different, this place was not that bad. We liked the village, in general (free activities: hot tub, pool,... More

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.
