Staff was helpful, when they had time...


Rooms are squeaky as hell and the floor is not even... Beds are not comfortable and the sheets are bigger than the pillow. Staff is kinda nice. I would say security is good but you have to leave the key of your room when you go out... Then what's the point of the enormous key the give you? Location has to be good, Interlaken is really small. Good point is that they have a kitchen that's pretty big and you can leave food. Aside from that I wouldn't go if I were you.


We stayed at the Happy Inn Lodge for one night. The staff was very friendly and nice, but the room was very small for 6 people and it had only one socket/room. Had to charge my phone in the hallway. They have a kitchen as well as their own pub/restaurant which is great, but can get very nosy at night because of it(music from downstairs).


A hostel with a bar/restorant downstair, so very convient if you want to drink something after a whole day's traveling. Good quality/price ratio.


It was a great location with a wonderful bar and restaurant below. The staff were very friendly and everything was very clean. The only problem we had was that at 2am a man was banging on your door to get into our room because they told him he was staying in our room. He even had a key to our room, which made us weary of our security, but we locked everything up in our lockers and did not have a problem after that. Overall a great place to stay!

Mattresses were very thin and the toilets need hand soap, but apart from that a great location (5 minutes walk from Interlaken West station) and pretty good place to stay overall. Above a busy, popular restaurant/bar so can be loud in the evenings, but it's not bad, and is dead quiet after it closes. It was an unusual system having the bar as the reception, and having to leave the key with them whenever you leave for the day, but staff were very nice and helpful regardless.


you can wash your hand in your room. There are many korean, I don't know why. They run bar & restaurant. It's nice.


poor kitchen and wifi the shower was cold the reception is in the bar, hard the communication with staff when needed big room and nice food in the bar


The Kitchen has really few cutlery. A hostel need at an oven. The security is poor as people from the bar can have free acess to the hostel. The reception is the bartenders, so really difficult to talk while they rush to serve drinks. Need better mattres.


We enjoyed our stay at the Happy Inn, the beds were comfortable and wasn't too loud at night. The location is great.. Only a 2minutes walk from Interlaken West and about 10minutes from Ost. The only thing we were disappointed with was there was no stove to cook on, but there were microwave ovens. Also 2 large cokes cost 11CHF at the hostel which we were shocked at! Overall a nice hostel to stay at in Interlaken


Best place in Interlaken.


This hostel is just for a low low budget. There is only one plug in the room. Kitchen facility is not good. There are no inductions at all. You can only make coffee or tea. Kitchen is not for a cook. Don't confuse with 'Kitchen facility'. The room is really really small. Tiny. 6 people were packed in one small room. I won't recommend you.


last day 2014, they told us that kitchen didn't use until 1.1.2015 am 9:00,because their's New year party. but that didn't mention it at booking. so we embarrased.

Very nice hostel. Loved it!!! 5 mins walk from Interlaken west Bahnhof!!! Bus stop nearby to go to Interlaken Ost Bahnhof. Owner was very helpful!!! I will definitely stay here again when I come to Interlaken!!!!! Frohe Weihnachten!!!!!!! :)


The bed was suddenly collapsed when I fallen asleep at night, I have to fix the wooden piece under the mattress in mid-night so that I can continue to sleep.


Nice staff of helping out with activity booking and recommendation of staying in the town. Nice hostel with clean washroom and facilities.


Happy Inn was great and very close to Interlaken West which was very convenient. However, check-in was a bit confusing as the reception is part of the restaurant bar. If they had mentioned that before we arrived, it would have been a lot more convenient, but other than that it was a good experience.




the staff was very kind to me and there was korean information. the price was very reasonable compared to the facilities. the shower room was clean and wide and easy to use. I was satisfied so I stayed one more night. thank you for your kindness!
