I stayed here for two nights in late September and I would not recommend this hostel. I had a prior reservation in which I advised that I was checking in at 1400 and got to the reception to find out they opened at 1500 so I had to wait out the front on the grass with my bags until someone... More

After 3 nights, after all i was happy with my experience in riverlodge but i think there are better option in same price range. Pros: -clean histel -location which is riverside (more camping/adventures type) Cons: -kitchen facilities/ equipment are poor -desk working hours (8:30 - 12 am) and (3:00 - 6:00 pm) -very small rooms -no blanket (you have to...

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in June. This was our first experience in the hostel and i would say, it wasnt great. As per the amount we paid per night, (99 CHF), we expected a quite a bit more than what was given to us. We took a double private room with shared bathroom. The room was... More

As an Aussie, when I camp I expect a tent and bush. Here you get a fullly equipped kitchen, a living room with TV and in the reception area you can buy convenient food (e.g. milk). The location is great, only minutes away from the Interlaken Ost train station, supermarket and the main drag. You are located right on the... More

RiverLodge is in a beautiful location. Whenever you walk to the train station from here you can go to the gate by the river and turn right, and it leads you on a nice walk along the river and to the bridge where you cross to get to the other side of Interlaken. That's the only positive about this place.... More

We stayed at the River Lodge for 2 nights on a recent trip to Switzerland and were incredibly disappointed with our stay. Having read other reviews on Trip Advisor we were expecting it to be basic, but the reality is so much worse than that. The "rooms" are really just boxes made of plywood; there is no privacy, no insulation... More

I was glad that I could do my laundry. Everything was great, from facilities to location to staff, the only negative thing was probably the cleanliness of the showers and toilets. I guess you couldn't really blame them, since it's really more like a campsite rather than a hostel, and with all the people staying there, it tends to get... More

From the pictures, we had already expected the rooms to be small. Location was about 15 minutes by foot from the Interlaken Ost station. Happy to have a shared kitchen as food is expensive in Switzerland and we were able to prepare our own food. There were laundry facilities as well. But we could have better prepared ourselves if we... More
