The staff are so friendly and welcoming for a start and it just gets better. We were given tokens for free hot chocolate free bus around town then directed to our room. It was basic but sooo lovely the bathroom was spotless. We had a 4 berth and there was heaps of room with lickers if we needed them. Nice... More

Backpackers was excellent. The rooms were clean and had lockers for each person. I had a bathroom in my room with a separate shower. Beautiful view of the Alps when you walk outside, very close walking distance to the town. Close to Outdoor Interlaken for activities.

This hostel is clean, the staff is friendly, and the environment is nice. The price isn't bad, it's located close to the center of town and the train station. The biggest downside is that the rooms are a bit on the small side, but it's worth it because of the cleanly environment.

I couldn't have been happier with my experience at Backpackers Villa. First, very easy to find from the train station, and very close. They even have signs up on the streets to help! Great location, we were just a few minutes walk from just about everything in town, and right next to the huge park. The hostel itself was awesome!... More

Backpacker's was everything we could have expected for the price and more. Great views off the back porch and a decent hostel breakfast. The rooms were clean and we got one with a private bathroom. The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful.

Good location. Center of town area, between Interlaken West and Ost but Ost station would be a little nearer. It is15mins walk from West station. Right in front of the hostel is a big green field with farm cows and you can see the beautiful Alps view. ... The hostel will give you 2 tokens upon check in. You can... More

The staff here was really great! The location was close by to the central train station as well and the facilities were clean. And free washer and dryer! Which is very unheard of! The way the staff handle themselves and take care of their guests show that they care a lot about making a good impression and understand the quality... More

As opposite to our bad experience in Luceren Backpacker, we find this place quite comfortable and cozy. There were no rules on the walls. Reception staff welcome us with smile and generous gesture. They allowed us to check in earlier. I had booked private room, which was quite refreshing and spacious. There was one double bed and two bunk beds... More

Although this a huge hostel in a small town, it will probably exceed your expectations. First, the direction to the hostel from the main station provided by the hostel might be a bit confusing especially if you arrive at night; at least I got lost. When you exit the station and walk towards the town, just turn left as soon... More
