Good location near train station. Clean and tidy. Only downside was that there is no stove top for cooking, only a microwave.


Nice staff, good location, good wifi - TERRIBLE mattresses


I stayed at the happy inn 13 yrs ago so upon my return to Interlaken there was no better option for me and my nephew. I was so pleased to find that the hotel, which had been updated with a few new amenities, still provided the same great attributes it had so many years before. Everything from the staff, to the food, to the atmosphere of the hotel and its surroundings provide the perfect stay for your trip to Interlaken. The folks who work at happy inn make you feel like family! Great stay!

The location was good, but the place is in/above a bar that just about anyone could walk into. We also had to turn in our keys when we left the hostel which was annoying. To top it all off, the beds were ATROCIOUS. I can't stress how horrible they were. Will not be staying here again.


served it's purpose wasn't there for very long . clean facilties :) good wifi


Nice hostel made amazing by the lovely staff. Nice lounge to chill out in and cook food (which is essential as eating out in interlaken costs a fortune!) Lovely area outside to sit and relax with a drink.


Absolutely helpful and enthusiastic staff will make you feel welcome. Always ready to lend a hand and make you enjoy your stay. The hostel is in a great location with pretty decent bathrooms. No problems whatsoever with wi-fi. The Tavern on the first floor serves an awesome ( and affordable) menu and great live music in the evenings. Really enjoyed my stay here :)


Room for 4 was adequate however, very warm and wasn't sure opening window was appropriate. Breakfast was good and staff was helpful, but consumed by running restaurant

Good place nice amb ience


Best hostel ever


Good budget hostel in a fantastic location! Most of the staff were excellent and very friendly/helpful, just the one spoiled it for them as he was rather rude and intimidating during a meal at the hostel. You also have to leave your key with the staff, which we didn't mind until one night our key wasn't there due to someone else taking it and we were unable to get back into our room - finally someone gave us a spare key! Overall though, we did enjoy our stay in Interlaken!


The staff here were really friendly and gave us lots of recommendations for things to do. Great wifi in the rooms, having sink/mirror in the room, a kitchen with a fridge and microwave was also nice. Be warned -- BRING EARPLUGS! The beds and floors are extremely creaky and the walls are quite thin. Also, breakfast was extremely expensive at 8 CHF. The shower's hot water cut in and out too. Other than that had a great stay! :)


Interlaken is a tourist town so if you're coming here you probably are not spending much time in the hostel itself. The place is clean and comfortable, and the bar downstairs has a good vibe. Staff are good although the hostel doesn't have much communal atmosphere.


The mattresses definitely need replacing. The springs are visible and the beds are uncomfortable. Otherwise we were happy.


We enjoyed our stay but the staff always seemed busy working in the bar, so it seemed like it would have been very easy for any person walking in to ask for a room key and be given access to the guests' belongings. But we just kept our valuables on us at all times, and otherwise it was great!

Nice and clean hotel


The security door can be opened easily, that I dun feel safe. There is one charger in a 6 beds room. There is no kitchen for u to cook. Bathroom is shared with 3 separated small bathroom. It means that there is a boy/girl bathing next door. Toilet is clean.


Considering it was Switzerland, we got the hostel at a decent rate. Room was rather small for 6 persons though. However staff were really nice and made us feel welcomed in Interlaken. Highly recommend.


Staff was helpful, when they had time...
