Fantastic location: beautiful view, right on the water, with mountains rising up all around. Excellent opportunities for outdoors activities: kayaking, hiking, etc. Would definitely stay here again. Only complaints are that in the large dorms people sleep right next to each other (literally 12 inches apart) and that "security" is practically non-existent (no lockers for locking up valuables and anyone can just walk in off the street and take the key to the room from its shelf in the lobby).

Stayed solo in the 7-person dorm, the sleeping situation was very close (no space at all between mattresses) but wasn't really an issue. The location of this lodge is a huge part of its appeal, definitely recommend kayaking and hikes in the area - and skydiving if you're up for it! Easy to get to town, really chilled vibe in the common areas, very easy to meet people. No lockers to speak of in rooms but strangely didn't feel like an issue. Wifi is good when only a few people are on it.

Staff was awesome, just 15 minutes away from Interlaken and from all the tourist chaos. Lovely place infront of the lake. Definetly stay here again.

This is an amazing hostel! We were especially impressed with the staff who went above and beyond to make sure their guests enjoyed their stay. The only things I would say that we didn't think were excellent was the Security and Facility of the hostel. There was really no way to lock up our things and there are only two bathrooms per floor which meant we took a little longer to get ready in the morning.

Simple and friendly hostel in an AMAZING location.

The hostel is about 20 minutes outside of Interlaken, but a really easy and convenient bus ride. It's on a beautiful lake, and you can rent kayaks for 10 CHF for 4 hours. You also get a bus pass at the hostel, so it doesn't cost anything to go into Interlaken. The woman at the reception was nice as can be and super helpful with anything we needed. The hostel itself was fairly nice. The beds are somewhat uncomfortably close together, but that was fine. The free breakfast was delicious!

1. Location is amazing, @ lakeside in quiet Iseltwald, just beyond Interlaken's crowd. Had a room facing the lake. Warm, dry, clean, & a balcony with table/chairs. 2. Staff is great - so friendly, helpful, accommodating. 3. Kitchen is huge, has all you need to cook anything you want. 4. You'll save money! Free breakfast is great, especially with how expensive Switzerland is. Free bus pass for the days you stay, to/from IL & nearby towns. It's more like they are running a charity than a business.

This hostel was great, located on a beautiful lake with blue water and close to an amazing waterfall that you can hike all the way to the top. They also ran excursions right from the hostel

Fantastic location on the shore of the lake and free bus into Interlaken. Really friendly and helpful staff. Not too expensive (for Switzerland!) A few problems though - no hot water on one day, wifi was temperamental, and there were quite a lot of flies in the kitchen/dining room area.

Absolutely amazing atmosphere, staff and location! This hostel will definitely be my first choice when I visit the area again.

Great location on the lake. Having a kitchen was great and there's a little grocery right in the town of Iseltwald to get supplies. We loved staying here. The staff was really helpful and nice. Our only complaint was that the kitchen and dining room area were over run by flies! Get some fly paper or traps! It's really difficult to hang out indoors in the dining area as the flies drive ya crazy!

The view was the only thing good about the hostel for us. The 10 bed dorm was very crowded and the beds were just mattresses separated by wood. There are no lockers or shelves to place your bags, you share one key with all your roommates, the wifi sucks, one shower and bathroom on our whole floor and there are only 2 staff so they were always busy and not very knowledgeable at times. If we stayed in a smaller dorm it probably would have been a better experience for us.

Can't really go wrong when you're surrounded by the alps! Nice bathrooms, kitchen, and common area. Simple, yet unlimited and free breakfast assortment. Dorms are recommended as long as you don't require a large personal bubble, as the beds are VERY close together.

Truly magnificent place, the hostel overlooking the lake! the staff friendly and helpful our every question and request was accepted and resolved! We were very comfortable, the rooms designed in an intelligent way and overall it's a great property! wifi does not work but we were advised at check in, but there's more to see than internet! will provide sheets and breakfast very good!! obviously is a place to relax ,than you can find so much nature and tranquility!
