This hostel has defined what is the meaning of the word "ideal".
The hostel is located centrally in Interlaken, at the same distance to either train stations. Easy to get to, even by foot. The hostel has a great structure. The beds are good, the lockers big, the wifi worked pretty good even in the bedrooms. The breakfast is also good and at the check-in they gave me some coins to use in the machines to get a coffee, do the loundry or use the computers. There is no bar in the hostel.
Koreans flooding the place. everything else is perfect.
Everything is great. But I don't recommend go down during the dinner time. There will take place korean party.
Very good hostel. The price includes a good breakfast, liens and towers. The room is very clean and have a lot of space.
Really nice place. Best room ever stayed. Love the bed. It's nice theres a kitchen. But mainly covered by South koreans. The staff was really helpful and respectful, helped me with a lot of questions and suggestions on restaurants and activities. One more thing if it could be more diverse, would be good.
The facilities were really nice XD Enough toilets and showers on every floor, the beds were comfortable, bed sheets were clean! But the shower rooms were a bit cold during winter, cold air coming in.. And the kitchen was amazing to make food by ourselves! The only bad thing was that hostel was too far from the train station Interlaken ost!! About 15-20minutes by walk.
Nice place, very cozy. Would stay here again. No problems with anything. One thing to consider, for skiing/Jungfrau purposes, expect about an hour and two trains or one ski bus and one train to get up to the mountains. Not difficult but takes a little bit of planning.
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.
