Really enjoying my stay here - the staff are helpful and very informative and there are beautiful views from the tents. Being cheap is an added bonus! Would recommend if you're staying in the area and would like to see Interlaken.

Staff at reception was so helpful and friendly!! Awesome atmosphere!! Great outdoor alternative if you want some basic amenities. Closer to things than we had originally thought. So happy they have Magners on tap!

Most helpful and friendliest staff by far! Great location and awesome hot tub. Tents are clean and comfy with an amazing view. So many resources at the hostel for booking any adventure you could want in interlaken. Will definitely book here again!

A great place to stay and everyone was really helpful and friendly. The facilities are spotless and the place was in fantastic condition. The tents are a nice size and very comfortable. There were a few younger travellers staying but the bar shuts at 10:00 and they are all in the youth hostel closer to Interlaken (which has Interlakens only nightclub) and the staff have a strict policy on late night noise so the atmosphere at night was very chilled out and quiet. It’s a 5 minute walk to the train station at WIlderswil where you can join all the routes into the mountains. There is a bus stop at the entrance to the tent village and you get a free bus pass when you stay (make sure you ask for it, we used it every day). There is a supermarket/shopping centre 1 minute walk away which we used to buy fresh bread, cheese, meats and coffee every morning. Also check out some of the leaflets they have in the entrance hall as we got 30% off a trip up the Schilthorn. We would definitely go again; it was the perfect place to stay.

Perfect place to complete the outdoorsy feel of beautiful Interlaken. Comfortable tents. Cheapest accommodation in town and thoroughly worth it if you like being outside. Great time had even with the rain.
