We were concerned at previous reviews about noise but we didn't experience this at all. Very quiet from our perspective. Live music is only Thursday and we missed this night so maybe we were lucky. It's also possible that the dorms might be noisy as they are closer to the restaurant/bar. Staff are very friendly, informative and welcoming. Toilets, rooms... More

My 4 friends and I stayed at the Happy Inn Lodge for 3 days and 2 nights. While we enjoyed the central location and friendly staff, this place is a restaurant and bar first, and a hostel second. Since we stayed over a weekend, the music from the bar/restaurant area below was incredibly loud and made it difficult for us... More

Very pleasant, charming, friendly lodge. Very close to the Interlaken West station, and city center. Rooms are large and spotlessly clean, with numerous toilets on each floor. The views are magnificent. Extremely good restaurant cum bar on the ground floor. Food is excellent. I loved it, specially the Champion's League final night on 25.5.2014, with beer on the house! I...

The staff is extremely welcoming and helpful. The restaurant, popular among locals and travellers alike, offers delicious meals and snacks. However, if you wish to have a good night's rest, this hostel is not ideal. First of all, the music from the restaurant downstairs was too loud until the early morning hours. Second, the bathrooms could have been cleaner and... More

We had a private room in this hostel with a shared bathroom. The bathroom was not as clean as in other places we have stayed, but was okay. The room was extremely spacious with a nice street view. The room was also well heated and quiet despite being above the bar/cafe. The beds were very squeaky which was somewhat annoying.... More

If you are looking for anything above very basic accommodation don't stay here. Happy Inn is in a great location - close to Interlaken West station and within walking distance of Interlaken Ost station, close to plenty if restaurants & cafes and to coop & Migros (grocery stores). That said, Interlaken is very small so most places are pretty close... More

We stayed 2 nights, had a double room which was very spacious and shared bathroom next door. The beds were comfortable and we also made use of their free wifi and kitchen facilities. Switzerland is expensive, so the $ of this accommodation is in fact on the cheaper end. The staff were very nice, each time we entered through the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in november 2014. Let me give you some background. We are a couple in our late 20's/early 30's stayed in hostels all over the world and generally realise that being waken up all the time can be apart of sleeping in hostels along with cold showers and all the rest so were not picky....

Happy Inn is very close to the Interlaken West bahnoff. The staff is really nice and friendly. They help you out with planning your trips in and around Interlaken. The bar is really good, a crowd puller. One of the nights we had a live band playing which had us on our toes. The WiFi that they provide works round... More

It is definitely a hostel rather than an 'Inn' like the name suggest. But it was definitely a clean and nice place to stay in Interlaken. Although it is a bit small. The staff was friendly and helpful. When we first arrive, the staff provided us with detailed information regards to Interlaken. What to do and where to find it.... More
