Staff was so nice and the place was beautiful! Hostel was able to book outdoor adventure excursions. Would definitely come back here. Life changing location
Absolutely wonderful hostel. Great atmosphere, large and clean kitchen, beautiful location (overlooks a Lake - definitely worth the 15 swiss franc to rent the kayaks). We stayed in one of the tents in the back rather than a dorm. While it was cold, there were plenty of blankets and it was so peaceful going to sleep listening to the rain on the tent walls. I would 100% stay again !
Barbara was fantastic! We missed both check-in blocks but she accommodated us without hesitation. She also suggested an incredible waterfall that was 1.5 hour hike/walk away. The Lake Lodge itself is in a remote town of Iseltwald, so while security is lacking there seems to be no need for lockers. The bus to the hostel is 6.20£ but then free with visitor card from hostel. Shared bed tent was freezing & smelled weird. Pay the little extra for a room inside. No breakfast but kitchenette is open.
Amazing hostel! Fantastic location, great staff and good showers/toilets! The info on events and activitys nearby was very informative
The lake view is the best for the stay The ferry ride from Interlaken should have a try! Unlucky it is a bad weather day, many activities could not play
I enjoyed my stay very much. Will definitely visit again when i return to interlaken
Very cool location. The staff is very friendly and will drop anything they are doing at the time to help you, whether it's with renting bikes or giving you directions. The hostel always seem bustling with travelers, making it a fun stay for those wanting to meet new people. I would recommend this hostel to anyone.
Two items of concern: There was one key shared by all roomates, bad security. At the hostel we were told we would have to change rooms every night during our four night stay. When questioned, we were told that Hostel World does not tell you this, just makes the reservation and you find out when you arrive at the hostel. Canceled our reservation and found beds elsewhere. Will not use Hostel World again. Hostel was generous and returned our money paid.
I loved the room and the personal balcony that came with it. Great view and restaurant across the street. I would highly recommend!
Very friendly desk staff. Great view of the lake and mountains.

An amazingly beautiful place to relax and unwind after long tiring day of tourism. If you are close by, just go there for a weekend! Take a stroll along the lake,kill the heat with a swim in beautiful turquoise Brienz lake, watch the sun set behind the mountains while having dinner in the beautiful gardens by the lake.The scenic view provides wonderful opportunity for amateur/professional photographers. It was my first time travelling alone and living in a mixed dorm and i made wonderful friends

Didn't know what to expect going into this place but it was incredible. Almost all the people we met here spoke English and it was a great vibe. Fire pit in the back made for fun nights and chilling right on the water was awesome. highly recommend
this place was awesome. outside of interlaken so i recommend it as a relaxing place to stay kind of like a cottage are. really awesome and good kitchen
Lake Lodge is a FABULOUS hostel to stay in! The views from the hostel are great and you truely feel like you are spending sometime a summer camp. I will give you a heads up that if you decide to stay in a dorm room (9 or 10 people) the beds are very different. They lay right next to each other with wood in between. If you are uncomfortable with sleeping DIRECTLY next to someone than I would upgrade to a smaller room. This place is simply amazing and the staff is GREAT! :)
Clean bathrooms, large kitchen with all the essentials, and a nice common area. Absolutely gorgeous scenery in a quiet town and neighbourhood made the mountains and the lake even more enjoyable.
Lake Lodge is wonderful! It absolutely made our stay in Inrerlaken. It is definitely worth it to spend a few extra dollars and get a lake front room. We absolutely loved sitting on our porch and enjoying breakfast with a view! The staff are very friendly and helpful if you want advice on where to eat or what to do. It's also really nice that you get free bus passes here. And the bathrooms were so clean!
Wonderful, friendly, helpful staff made our trip super enjoyable. Also thanks for the visitor discount cards, they were great!
