We stayed in a 'pod' for a night and a dorm for the second night. The wooden pod was great, comfy bed, got a little hot inside during the night but still really nice. The dorm had more space- we booked a whole dorm for 2 of us- and had covered access to toilets, kitchen etc. The beds were also... More

Such a serene place. The staffs were friendly and provides us with Plug socket with security deposit of 10chf. The place is just 10 minutes to the central town and around 5 minutes to HarderKulm. Overall. I would recommend this place if you dont mind sharing toilet and showers.

well, it is great price for this location. I really hope that there is a bridge to connect between the station and this place. It is located just opposite of the station but you have to walk further to go across the bridge and walk to this place. For those bringing the big luggage, like us, it is not recommended... More

We booked a dorm for our stay in Interlaken and definitely felt like we were a little deceived by the pictures. The walls were very thin (even for Hostel standards) and it was more like staying in a camper than a hostel. For the price you're paying, even by Switzerland standards, it's safe to say you expect more than what... More

We stayed 3 nights in a small wooden house - pod, there is only a matress, pillow and blanket, no chairs, table or a heater. Facilities were just around the corner - shower, toilet, even shared kitchen. We really enjoyed the stay, we were so close to nature and river, it was quiet and yet so close to the centre,... More

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
