Great, clean facilities with a friendly staff. The two biggest perks were the free continental breakfast (Switzerland is rough on the wallet, take a free meal when you get it!) and the travel pass. The travel pass gets you on to the local buses for free and for the most part 50% off the trains and trams in the area (once again expensive). The staff was great with directions and suggestions.

Best hostel I have ever stayed at. The location is perfect (center of Interlaken, close to both train stations and the city center). The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. The hostel staff are the absolute best -- they are very nice and provide awesome advice for things to do and how to plan out your day. The price includes a lot of perks -- free espressos/laundry, free tennis/swimming/mini-golf, free local bus service -- it's awesome. Don't even bother with other hostels, just stay here!

Favourite hostel I've stayed in. Amazing location, 10 min walk to either train station, 5 min walk to main street. really friendly staff. Good breakfast, big lockers for backpacks. 2 free tokens per night for washing/coffee machines. Free towel that you can change anytime at reception. Lovely big spacious hostel that i would definitely recommend and I would definitely stay again. It is mainly Koreans staying there but i dont see what difference that makes!!

Great hostel. Staff are incredibly nice. Somewhat annoying that the cleaning lady has to clean the bathrooms at the time everyone is taking showers. Great location. Easy to book things to do with staff members. Lots of Koreans.

The staff were really lovely here! Probably about 90% of the people staying here at the time of our stay were Korean. Interlaken was so beautiful

This hostel is located perfectly for walking distance to anywhere in Interlaken, including both train stations. It has a relaxed mountain vibe, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The facilities are amazing (having laundry facilities alone makes this hostel perfect). The large kitchen made it easy to eat on a budget during my stay, and the included breakfast was great. This is one of the best hostels I've stayed in and next time I'm in Interlaken I'll definitely stay here.

Great hostel. Loved that we were given tokens to use the washing machines for free. Staff super helpful and friendly. Great location. Awesome wifi. Only problem was that the rooms were super small and tight. Beds vibrated when people were moving in the room.

It was a great location, and lots of space in the kitchen, there are multiple stoves and fridges to store food. However as a head up, there is a very very large percentage of Koreans because this hostel is advertised in Korean travel books. So don't be surprised when you arrive.

Huge lockers in the room, adequate showers and toilets with good strong pressure, good breakfast included, great WIFI signal even in the rooms. Nothing to complain about, really. I'll highly recommend this over Funny Farm, which I stayed at the previous time I was in Interlaken.
