Staff were very friendly and helpful however the tent we stayed in was kind of dirty and absolutely filled with snails and slugs. Tent village facility is kind of cool and fun but a little far from the rest of Interlaken.. Would be an excellent place to stay if the weather is beautiful and you are looking to party but if you are looking for a quiet place to spend a night you might want to consider some place else.

Tent village is a great value and would definitely recommend. It had a good atmosphere and Balmers main hostel was just a short walk away with a pretty good night life. Large market right across the street was great for getting food to make on your own.

Really nice view at the mountains and quite quiet. The big hostel with bar is in walking distance. Too bad you can not really cook at the tents, but you also have to go to the big hostel.

Security is poor, which can't be helped. It's a tent village. Showers were surprisingly quite good, though it's hard to tell if someone is inside.

Staff was fantastic. Helpful, and accomodating. I stayed in a 6 person tent and it was surprisingly roomy. I wish the showers had doors you could lock. It would be the easiest thing to make the hostel that much better. Great atmosphere! Great staff! Would recommend this tent village to anyone travelling alone looking to have a good time and meet people! Highly recommend fabio (at least I think that's her name) amazing service!

Back to basics with a few added amenities like a bbq pit and a hot tub. Location was excellent with views of the surrounding mountians. Not for the up market traveller though. Will definately stay here again if I'm up this way again

I loved the tent village. Remember when you sign up to stay in a TENT village you are going to be in a TENT. The beds were creaky and the walls of the tent sweat at night but I loved it because it gave the experience of camping in the Alps much more of a touch. I met so many awesome people while at the tents. There is a super market right across the street where we bought grilling supplies every night we stayed there. It was so much fun to grill and drink at the bar and make friends.

Great place to stay, stunning location, helpful staff, social and friendly atmosphere, and a hot tub with an alps view! Lockers were perhaps abit small but large enough to fit valuables in, and there was access to a kitchen just down the road. Well worth a stay, would return without a thought.

We really enjoyed our stay. The facility was kept very clean, they enforced the 10 pm quiet time, the beds were comfortable and clean, and the staff was great. The other guests were also all very nice. Balmer's had some very nice touches like a free concert one evening, and free walking tours of Interlaken three evenings a week. I would highly recommend them!

Perfect stuff! Not a camping, not a hotel but both at the same time! I would gladly come back there next time Only point: sleeping with an american flag above my head is quite disturbing (room New york) ;-)

This is a great place to stay and super cheap for Switzerland. A grocery store 2 min walk and they give you a bus pass. It's a great party and chill out atmosphere (whatever your looking for) it's a large place. The only negative I can say is they make you pay for utensils and don't give ice for your drinks ... Very minimal negatives. Stay here.

Overall good value for the price. The bus ticket that was included was very helpful getting around the city. The facilities weren't great because well, it's a tent village. The bunk beds were small and high with no ladders ( I just put the mattress on the floor). The atmosphere was chill and comfortable. Would stay again.

We had a blast at Balmer's Tent Village. We did have a problem with slugs and our clothes stayed very damp, but overall it was a very successful experience! Balmer's is GREAT especially for booking your activities in Interlaken!

The Tent Village is a fun place to stay! The tents are comfortable, and the common area is very welcoming. Free tea is a great perk and there is a grocery store right across the street. The staff was helpful and buses stop right outside the campground. Wifi does not reach the individual tents, but it works well in the main area.
