I stayed for 2 nights in my own room. The room was very clean with a bathroom and wifi throughout the building. All you can eat breakfast included and great laundry facilities. In the middle of Interlaken so close to transport and wonderful views. Thinking about going back next year, best hostel i've stayed in actually!

I was always full of praise and recommend many friends about this place to stay, but since my last visit almost 6 years ago, this place has lost its quality. Breakfast: VERY LIMITED options, just bread, jam and cornflakes is what they offer in ALL you can eat. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT. Staff: Not as friendly as my last experience Price: Boom...

Dear Karan Thanks for taking the time to write about your experience here at Backpackers Villa. Please allow us to clarify: The room was CHF 112.50 (= ca. 107 EUR) a night for two adults and a child. It’s absolutely correct that the breakfast is limited, but it is “all you can eat” (bread, butter, cream cheese, jam, yoghurt and...

I was always skeptical about choosing a hostel. However since me and my wife were on budget we decided to book the same based upon the reviews. This has been one of the best decision that we took to plan a trip. The hostel is located very close to both the Interlaken OST and West station. You can easily take...

Switzerland was our first visit to Continental Europe and we were unsure of how it would work out and especially staying in a backpacker accommodation. How was our Switzerland experience can easily be gauged by the fact that the memories of Switzerland is still fresh in our mind. We were in Switzerland for 9 days and during the majority of...

We were reaching Interlaken during midnight. They have a system whereby the keys are dropped in a box out of the hostel. You have to enter the booking reference number and the key is dropped from the box. Once I entered the towels, bed spreads where arranged in my name. The rooms are very tidy and cozy. They also give...

Enjoyed my two night stay here in a six person female dorm. I liked the fact that there was shower and toilet facilities in the room. I liked that I could choose which bed I wanted in the room as long as no one else had taken it. This meant that I got the bottom bunk. The only thing that...

It is a very good hostel. Very clean. Had power socket and lamp for each bed. Friendly staff. Can do laundry. Have hot drinks and breakfast. The reason I gave 4 stars and not 5 stars is because of two reasons: (1) it is a bit far from the train station, about 1km away. And it is not that close...

Our first stay at Interlaken couldn't have been at a better location. The Hostel was simply superb!! With so many laundromats, public spaces, in-dorm amenities, clean toilets and showers, no-fuss check-in an check-out, exceptional staff and kitchen facilities....overall a perfect stay for 1 night!
