10min walk from train station and very easy to find. Staff were friendly. We stayed in a 4-bed room, but we were the only two in there for our stay Room was clean, but there wasn't much to clean. 2 bunk beds and a small wooden shelving unit separating them. Had small wooden lockers as well. Not a very spacious room. Pillows were terrible. Walls were thin - we could practically hear other people's conversations. It also didn't help that the washrooms were right outside our door so you could here people constantly going in and out of them. But generally around 11pm everything quieted down.
Kitchen was open 24hrs, but for some reason had a terrible smell in it the whole time. Laundry machines were cheap, but very hard to get one. The staff use them to clean the sheets and such and then everyone else at the lodge seemed to need them at the same time. The dryer we used didn't even dry out clothes - good thing it was sunny outside.
You could rent kayaks, canoe, bikes, electric car from them. Had lots of information about other adventures to do in Interlaken. And had a nice tented in area outside, where anyone can go an sit and enjoy the view.
For the price I would stay here again, but only for a few days at a time.
