Staying at AlpLodge was perfect for a weekend in Interlaken or one of the surrounding villages. Close to the Interlaken West station, the location is great. Also, the breakfast on the terrace was a highlight…eating fresh bread, coffee, orange juice, cheese, and cereal while overlooking the rooftops of Interlaken was a great way to wake up.

First hostel, cleaner than I thought it would be, sometimes tough to find a free wash closet.

Nice hostel/hotel with a nice size room. Good common/kitchen area. The shower in my room was awful and sprayed water everywhere so you had to hold it against the wall to keep things dry, it had a horrible shower curtain that you couldnt avoid touching you while you showered. The room looked directly onto another building so would have been nice to have net curtains rather than having to have the blind closed. It was well located though, minutes from West Station and about 15 minutes from East.

We loved this hostel was in a great location and had an amazing view of the mountains and river. Even if your room doesn't have a view you can see the beautiful scenery from the common area and balcony. We found this hostel perfect for us, good wifi in common areas, basic breakfast, in a good location as well.

the WiFi coverage was rather weak in the rooms and most often connection could not be made possible and we had to go to the common area to get a slightly better connection. toilets on the top floor were locked the whole night, no idea why. it caused a bit of queue in turns of using bathroom but otherwise it is fine.

This was a very nice place to stay, mostly renovated, good facilities. Opposite end of town from the train station but close to the downtown area. Sound proofing isn't great, and we had noisy neighbours until midnight, but other than that very nice.

Very near to the City Center and convenient to reach. Nice view from the window and terrace. Value for Money Little noise in night, however ok.

The hostel itself is perfect! 5 min from the West station, walking to ost staion is also 15 min only. Kitchen is well equiped, dinning room is large and there is a balcony with good scene. But the day i stayed, some Koreans are very noisy in common area, they cooked without cleaning the tools and making the kitchen dirty. I recommend this hostel to all except the korean.

The room is very commfortable and the staff and the location are all very good! But bathroon and WC are not enough for the people who stay there. They are too less.

A lively hostel just off the main road, within walking distance to everything but if you feel like catching the bus to anywhere in town a free bus pass is included for the duration of your stay. Kitchen was clean and maintained, cleaning crews came through every morning. My room was a little bit stuffy and cramped but what else do expect from a small room. Definitely a great place to stay.

Very convenient location, of note, it is located near the interlaken west station, but it is the interlaken east station that is connected to all the jungfrau railways, and it is a bit further away. The room was small but neat, we felt that it may be a bit insecure but nothing happened. The kitchen and the common room was nice and clean. The public bathroom was reasonably clean and we didn't have to wait in line to use it. Couldn't ask for more at this price range.

Great rooftop terrace

If your looking for a true hostel this is not it. Although it was clean and well located the cost of the hostel compared to what you get is not worth it at all. The blinds in my room didn't work (wouldn't close) the shower head spun around and sprayed all over the bathroom because it was probably the same one the hotel was built with. If you want somewhere for a night sure but if your planning a stay in interlaken there are way better options.

This place is adorable. It's a quirky looking hotel, kind of old-looking but in such a good way. I felt like I was staying on the set of a Wes Anderson movie. They could use a few more bathrooms, but other than that everything was great. Big open kitchen, plenty of fridge and food storage, open rooftop deck for amazing views of the Alps! The rooms were clean and so comfortable. Cozy beds with fluffy blankets, individual power outlets, reading lamps, and lockers. Sink in room.
