Hostel Living!

Great hostel in heart of Interlaken. Very attentive and friendly staff! Lots of room to cook in the three kitchens. Our family of 4 was very comfortable in the 4 person room. Close to everything so you can walk everywhere.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort

Bad experience.

The check out day male staff was very very rude and had not clue of customer service and I complaint about his rudeness, he start arguing with me that it’s not rude. Simply they have no idea about customer service. Beds were not comfortable and was hot and noisy in the rooms, no air or even no fan .

Great Stay

Enjoyed my stay in Interlaken. The staff were really friendly and knowledgeable about great hikes in the area. The beds were comfy and clean. The beds had their own power outlet. Each room has it’s own toilet and sink. Overall, great stay!
