The Hostel is very good! My experience there was ok, the only bad thing is that my bedroom was full of chinese girls, and they were very messy and dirty


Excellent place to stay! Do not forget to get the Interlaken Visitor Card when you go to this hostel-gives you a discount in all the trains through the mountains-also local buses are free with this card. All facilities are available and are very good. Restrooms are very neat. Staff is friendly. Located close to the station-10 minute walk from Interlaken OST as well as Interlaken West stations.


Good hostel. Kind and warm reception. Free breakfast and good kitchen.


Very nice place,good facility and staff.

We had a great stay at this hostel! The staff were very friendly and helpful. Although tokens were required for laundry and hot drinks, the front desk gave us more than enough for free. Rooms were very clean, and the beds were comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hostel!


Backpackers villa was a great place to stay if you need a break from your normal party hostel. The majority of the guests there during my stay were South Korean. Which wasn't a big deal, but it lacked diversity. The staff was very helpful with all my questions and were very friendly. The free breakfast consists of yogurt, bread jam, cereal and coffee and tea. Nothing too fancy, but free. The free bus passes helped to get around, but the town is so small you really don't need it. Great place!


love this hostel staffs gave information well and the kichen was fantastic.only the downside was too much Korean so not so great to meet people,


It's a wonderful experience during my stay and their staff is helpful.


All the staff were very helpful and kind. The rooms were fairly spacious and the lockers were quite big and secure. Overall the place itself was very nice, however it was a very quiet night life and social scene. However I stayed during off peak season so that is probably not the best judge as to how that aspect can be.


there are too many korean in hostel


Staff are really nice!!! Breakfast is so so.


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.


the staff is very nice and the hostel is very good.

Nicest & cleanest hostel I have ever been too. It is quite large but the rooms are spacious (with a sink) and bathrooms are cleaned a couple times a day. Breakfast is included & they give you coins for the coffee machine its so good. Staff was super helpful and friendly, excellent location as well. Go hang gliding and get the fondue dinner at Balmer's hostel down the street, but stay here. So nice, one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at & the people are chill would definitely go back!


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!
