It was easy to find the hostel but it was a little bit far away from the train station about 20minutes to walk. The room was very clean and comfortable. The free breakfast was simple, nice dining room.

Very satisfied !!!

This is a great hostel with tons of freebies- there is comfy seating and a coffee maker downstairs, computers, laundry, self service kitchen, maps etc. The staff is friendly and very knowledgeable. The rooms are a bit tight, and it would have been nice to have another sink in the shared bathroom, but overall great hostel!

The stay was excellent. There was not much of a mix of internationals, and most backpackers were South Koreans, and they had pretty much taken over the kitchen every evening. But it was all friendly and nothing to complain. I did complain about the nose bleeds due to lack of humidity and I was in room 46 which is in the basement, and could be an outlier but the hostel should either find a way to manage humidity or fit a humidifier for rooms that have less air circulation or no A/C

Overall a very good experience. It was very hot in the bedroom a night but too noisy with the cowbells to open the window. A lot of Asian tourists travelling in their own big group so didn't meet any new friends this time but may be due to the time of year 😊

One of the best hostels I've stayed in. The staff is the best I have ever met. They are extremely helpful and knowledgable. If you truly appreciate adventure and beautiful landscapes then visit Interlaken

The staff here was really great! The location was close by to the central train station as well and the facilities were clean. And free washer and dryer! Which is very unheard of! The way the staff handle themselves and take care of their guests show that they care a lot about making a good impression and understand the quality of repeat customers and good reviews! Everyone I spoke with was very nice and helpful - would definitely recommend this place to others and come back myself!

Great hostel. Very clean. Great staff. The laundry machines can get very busy in the evening so try to do your washing during the day if you can. A lot of Koreans come here and understandably speak their mother tongue among themselves so it's a little harder to meet people than some other places.

Wow - what a fantastic hostel! My friend and I stayed here for a couple of nights and enjoyed it immensely. Really friendly and helpful staff - they were able to book sessions such as paragliding for you, and give you any other information about getting around that you needed. Great cooking and washing facilities, though breakfast was a bit more basic than I expected. Excellent location - a wonderful view of Interlaken from our bedroom window! Would definitely recommend this hostel.

Very nice place! Awesome that you get free bus passes and discounts to local places. Very easy to find from the train station and now very far from either station! The staff was super nice and friendly! They even gave me some medicine because I was sick while staying there! Ohhh and the breakfast is awesome!!! You should stay here!

This was an amazing hostel. The rooms were clean, free breakfast was served (nothing special, but hey, it's free!), there was a massive kitchen, laundry was decently priced, and reception was very helpful and polite.

Sets the standard for hostels in Europe. A wonderful purpose built hostel. We had 6 in a private room for the family. Excellent kitchen, all you can eat breakfast. 10min walk from the stations. Recommended.

AWESOME hostel! You will feel like staying in a decent hotel if you look at the common areas. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Free laundry service and hot drinks~ Have to mention that the shower room is so clean that I was literally shocked~ But it is a little uncomfortable when cooking as the cooking area is not very spacious and it gets crowded very easily. In a word, although the price is a little bit high I think it worths it.
