I came late so in the dark and due to construction was a little hard to find but found it. My key was left out because the front desk was closed. Bedroom was nice and clean. One guy at reception seemed abit abrupt but the younger guy was cool and chatty. Great view of the town and close to the station would definitely go back


Affordable hostel I stayed in Interlaken area since the accommodation there is usually quite expensive. The en-suite bathroom in my dorm was very clean with all-day hot shower:) Lockers provided in the dorm. Quite convenient with just 10 mins walk from train station. I extended my stay due to its affordable price and nice environment. But you have to be careful on the open hour of the reception and complete the check-in procedure during their working hour.


room is too small, nobody can move if four persons were present there.

The staff behavior is extremly rude. They should improve their reception and kitchen timings. It would be great if they disclose everything beforehand rather than giving a shock after reaching there.


I read most of previous comments said negative about this hostel. But it doesnt seems so. This hostel is very comfortable and I really like it. Friendly staff, very clean and has good wifi connectivity.


Never encountered ruder staff. The kitchen closes at lunch time, and they refuse to open it. There isn't a social vibe here, literally just a bed and shower. That being said, if you want a cheap place to stay in a good location give it a go.. If you can deal with rude service.


The price of this hostel is very good considering it is Switzerland, and the location is also good. However, the rooms/hostel itself were outdated and not kept very clean. The kitchen is shut from 11-3, so you cannot have lunch in there. And also found the staff to be quite rude; there was one guy on the desk in particular who was not very pleasant. I would recommend it if you're looking for somewhere cheap, but there are nicer hostels around.
