Definitely recommandable. Laundary is free but washing machine is too busy to use it even after mid-night.

I had a great stay in this hostel - very clean, great location right in the centre of town, all the facilities I could want, very friendly and helpful staff, no problems whatsoever. Not the cheapest place I've ever stayed, but very reasonable by Swiss standards and given all the facilities that were included without extra payment. Thanks!!

Clean, free wi-fi, Epic views of the Alps out the front and back. Everything locks up at night, so security isn't an issue.

The baht room and toilet should be increase or should have in a first floor also. The staff is very nice and helping a lot + good adviced. Number of people in the room can create a lot of noise at night and difficult to sleep.

The facilities of this hostel are quite good, especially the ground floor. However, one of the staff at reception was very unfriendly, kind of racist, towards travelers from some Asian countries.

Great hostel. It's designed and run very well. Little things like the big lockers with hinged shelves, TV room, laundry, etc. Cleaned daily, and well. Only complaint: no air conditioning in the basement rooms - our dorm got too hot to sleep, but then there are no screens on the windows. So if you open window, bugs come in and bite you. Atmosphere not superb. Little social interaction. Mostly Korean visitors keeping to themselves. Interlaken is hella expensive, so this hostel is too.

The hostel facilities were excellent. It was kept very clean. The garden was especially nice, with a view of the mountains. However, my room was facing the gardens and kitchens and it was very noisy due to inconsiderate people smoking and talking loudly in the gardens as late as midnight. I had to remind them to keep quiet. The hostel being very popular, has its drawbacks that the kitchens and washing machines are always utilized.

This was a great hostel, a little far of a walk from the station but you can take the bus. However, the majority of the travelers there spoke Cantonese or Mandrin and it was a little hard making friends as an English speaking traveller.

This place was amazing! The staff was very friendly and helpful, lockers and rooms were secure, and facilities were all very functional and clean. There were multiple full kitchen areas so several groups are able to cook at the same time, and nice common space with games, movies and a nice terrace. Free breakfast was a good start to the day and you also get a visitors card that gets you free access to the public pool, tennis courts and mini golf as well as local transit for free!Highly recommend

Everything was good.

The hostel was incredibly expensive for a 6 bunk bedroom, but the facilities are very nice and the staff are friendly. It's one of several hostels in the area. The free breakfast is toast and cereal, only somewhat filing.

Incredible hostel. Great people. Great access to the city. Love the coin system. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Felt very safe traveling here as a single woman.
