It is very much a campsite, so basics. Staff are only there a limited amount (ie not between 12-5pm), and it does get pretty cold, so bring some extra layers!


The staff was nice, but the room was dirty and very noisy.


It is expensive for what you're getting for your money. The receptionist for check in is very arrogant and difficult to warm to. He really put me off this place. Great views. Bed are small and damp.


This was a really great place to stay at. It had a cozy feeling to it. The location and view were phenomenal. It's a 20ish min bus ride from town but they give you a bus voucher for free so that was awesome. During the day when you're feeling lazy just lounge on the recliners and enjoy the view. Great atmosphere at night too! It was a really good place to meet others and have fun. I does get super cold at night, but they have extra blankets available.


We loved the tent village, everyone was so friendly and helpful, we couldn't have asked for more! We were given free bus passes and the staff recommended places to visit, including some near by clubs, restaurants and sights! Although sleeping on the top bunk felt a little precarious, and the tent got a little bit chilly at nights, we had the most amazing time! The super market was only just across the road and the kitchen facilities excellent! Couldn't recomend it more!!


Great awesome experience staying on this place

amazing idea in a beautiful setting. not much to improve


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.


Tent village is an interesting concept of backpacking. Although the place is located far from the train station(appx 45min walk), the place is easily seen.


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.


That was my horrible stay in Swiss. It is raining and things are hard to dry within the tent... It is cold and hot drinking water is run out in the cold morning. It is cold to have the shower at such condition.


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!


Absolutely perfect!


Very friendly staff, provide you with all kinds of information and help you need, wonderful outdoor facilities with pool, sports courts and even barbecue grill :D


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


Simply great!! Go there and enjoy!


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.
