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

I just spent two months backpacking and ran into very few bad experiences. Except for at the river lodge. The price per night was incorrectly converted into euro so i ended up paying alot more then i was supposed to. the women was helpful as long as whatever you needed didnt interfere with her daily routine. but since this is...

Good Day Kay We are very sorry you had such a sad experience in the Bernese Oberland! Since the Euro has been getting weaker and weaker by the week we were too slow to adapt the Exchange rate on our Website. we were not aware that our Guests were counting so much on the Price in Euros, since we are...

River Lodge was a fairly inexpensive campground/hostel in Interlaken. The rooms were small, humid, and noisy. We could hear the guy in the next room snoring. The location is pretty good - it's right on the river, which is very nice if you feel like stepping outside for a picnic. The woman who was running the place was a machine... More
