The Lake Lodge was one of my favorite hostels I have stayed in! The staff was really helpful, the view around the hostel is amazing, and the lake was so nice to swim in. The directions to this Hostel was a little confusing. You just jump on the bus from Interlaken east and get off at the very last stop (20mins). You have to pay for the bus to get there but once you are there they give you a bus pass for the rest of your stay. I would recommend that you stay here!

Would absolutely recommend this hostel. While there are no lockers to store luggage, there is one key to each room, so the last person locks the door when they leave. Besides this, I did not feel threatened that someone would steal my luggage in this setting. This hostel in Iseltwald has an amazing view of (and on) the lake. We went swimming and rented kayaks from the lodge, as well as went on a lengthy (but nearby) hike to the waterfalls. No A/C in the rooms, but don't let this deter you.

We stayed in one of the tents and they have cots and bedding, but no electricity. The bus connection between Interlaken and Iseltwald works nicely plus there's a ferry so don't worry about it not being exactly in Interlaken. The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped.

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.

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.
