Was skeptical about staying in a hostel because of the things I heard before in general. I could have not been more wrong. Booked a private room for 2 for 2 at around 40 pounds a night. Firstly we got a warm welcome. The ladies behind the service desk were well informed and without being asked gave us a information... More

I stayed here for 3 nights. The hostel was one of the cleanest I've stayed in. The included breakfast was good by European standards. The location was great, 10 minute walk from the Ost train station and across the street from the park the skydivers land in. Also near many shops and restaurants. This hostel would be suitable for all... More

We stayed in a private room with a shower and toilet for 2 nights in March 2015. Overall, I felt that Backpackers Villa Sonnenhof offered excellent value for money in a popular location. - The location is excellent. A 5 minute stroll from the centre of Interlaken with fantastic views of the surrounding mountains. It provided an excellent base for... More

We have never stayed in a youth hostel since we've been travelling as a family, but after staying in this hostel for three nights during our trip to Interlaken, we will definitely consider this option for our upcoming trips. The Backpackers Villa was a very nice experience, the place is functionally equiped, the quadruple room we stayed in was clean,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a standard twin private ensuite room. Very comfortable stay. USP of this place: 1. Location - 1km from Interlaken OST. You can take a walk from station to hotel. 2. Most of the rooms are Alps facing :) 3. Rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. 4. Locker facility is available. 5. Various trips... More

My family and I (wife and 2 young boys) stayed here for one night before heading up to Grindelwald for the remainder of our holiday. The family rooms (4 person dorms set up with a bunk for children) are excellent. Super clean and comfortable. Villa Sonnenhof is located centrally in Interlaken, right by the open space called Höhematte. It is... More

We stayed here for one night in December 2014 in a private double room. It was a very comfortable stay and the staff was so helpful with tips and tickets to Jungfraujoch and back. I would definitely recommend Backpackers Villa Sonnenhof for any future travellers.

With a group of 17 people, including children, we have spent 4 nights at Backpacker's Villa Sonnenhof, early December. Besides the 3 rooms, we had also booked a living-dining room and a kitchen. The whole appreciated very the site and the quality of the hotel, corresponding to the price we have paid. The staff have been very helpful to us... More
