This hostel has been my favourite so far. The staff were super helpful and friendly. The rooms are spacious and clean, with superior bedding, two comfy chairs, a heater, a huge window with views over the river channel, and with a sink and mirror in one corner! The hostel is very open/airy and quiet. Each bathroom is a new deluxe ensuite with a window (rather than the standard shabby dorm showers separated by partitions in a single room without windows). Breakfast was delicious and generous too

Excellent location and cheap parking during our stay. The bathrooms were quite dirty. No low sheet included and the duvet cover was dirty too!

Dear Guest Thank you for your review. We are cleaning the bathrooms 4-5 times a day at least, but you must understand that we can not clean the bathroom after every single guest. If a bathroom is dirty, please report it to the staff and we will clean it immediately. Please note that the low sheet covering the mattress is put on already by our staff, you only have to cover the duvet and the pillow. If a cover is dirty, report it to our staff and you get it changed. Hope to see you again soon.

The price is cheap and the location is good, but the room is small and the WiFi is not working very well. The hostel is a little old but still a nice place to stay in Interlaken.

Great hostel, would stay again any time. Only downside was the "fully equipped" kitchen, which wasn't that well equipped.. Had to wash a spoon, as there was only one.. And although there were wine, cocktail and shotglasses in the cupboards, a normal glass or cup, would have been a neat option. Free breakfast makes up for that though! Only stayed 1 night in off-season, so I'm not too qualified to judge the atmosphere, though I could imagine it's more lively in summer.

I loved this hostel! im a female travelling alone and felt very safe and at home here. Close to the main train stations as well as almost everything else in Interlaken! security was great, it was clean and all round a great place to stay. The included breakfast is awesome, best yet! I would definitely return and recommend.

The quad sharing room is a bit too cramped. The breakfast was simple but adequate. If in case you don't find the spread filling, you can always cook your own food at the hostel's fully-equipped kitchen. The restrooms are shared but are surprisingly clean!

backpackers villa 보다 시설은 떨어지지만 지내기에는 더 괜찮은듯!! 한국사람이 덜 있어서 좋았고 역이랑도 가깝고 가격도 쌈!!

It didn't have a hostel atmosphere. The staff wasn't helpful, it seemed like they didn't know their city well enough to offer suggestions on things to see or do. Also, we had to actively search for staff members at times to check in and ask questions. There were not enough bathrooms for all of the floors. So it was difficult to find a restroom to use when everyone was showering in the morning.

The stay in the Alp Lodge hostel as a hole was an excellent. The facilities such as the WiFi, Kitchen and TV room were excellent. The location is just 3-5 minutes from West Station. All the transportation means are available beside the hostel, the Interlaken gust card with free or discounted transportation/events is an excellent idea and helped me a lot. I highly recommend this hostel and I will be back once and more.

The building is old, so wifi is spotty but that's expected since the walls are like concrete (part of the charm) and since the building is old there is a smell but the windows opened cleared that up. It was renovated recently is is really nice. The only thing we had issues with was the 4 bathrooms (4 toliets and 4 showers total) for everyone, in the mornings there was a wait. But it was all good besides that! Our private double bed was so so so comfy!!

Very quiet. And beatiful view. You can use comfortable kitchen. Terrace is nice. Only one thing is. There is no new bed sheet only cover of pillow and bedcloth.

An amazing hostel, and the best deal in Switzerland when you consider how expensive everything is in the country! Comfy beds, a good social vibe upstairs, awesome breakfast, and right near the train station. Only thing that prevented me giving it 100% across the board was the fact the receptionist wasn't always there, but easily the best hostel I've been at in years.

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.

After staying in many hostels on my European trip, the AlpLodge seemed to be the only one to get it 100% right. Big lockers in the rooms. Sink in the room. Power outlets in the room. Included delicious breakfast and coffee. Great location. Helpful staff. Working elevator. Doesn't get any better!

Very well located hostel/hotel in Interlaken. Close to main street, fast foods and restaurants, Interlaken west station and from 3 supermarkets. Equipped kitchen, nice room, everything clean and a nice view from the rooftop. The breakfast was good, bread, butter and jams, cheese, many drinks, but no fruits. WiFi was not good in the room, however worked fine in the common room. Not many bathrooms (4), but enough for the guests, just plan ahead and don't expect to find them empty always!
