Great place, good price. It's a nice 10min walk into town (that's where the other Balmers hostel is, where breakfast is served), and is situated close to Wilderswil/Schynige Platte, which was great for hiking. There are lockers for free if you bring your own lock, or you can pay if you don't have one. Hot tub is AWESOME! Desk isn't open all night but you can ask for a warmer blanket in advance if you don't think you'll be warm enough. Staff are knowledgeable about area and activities

The tent village was well known and easy to find once we asked someone for directions. Staff were welcoming and friendly. The bed and tent were clean. The only concerns would be the lack of utensils available, the BBQ being rented out for a night so that we could not BBQ, and the check in time being different from what was told on email.

Cant beat the view from the tent village. Right outside the tent are the mountains. Staff was great and was helpful. You can easily reach the train station by bus or even walking to town. Though the bus only comes every 30 minuets. There is a grocery store right across. It can get cold at night as there are no heaters inside the tents. Would also help to bring your own flashlight for when you need to go to the toilet late at night.

A cool place to stay. Views outside tent village are stunning! Very relaxed atmosphere and it was quite comfy to sleep in the tent.

Location was good as it's right next to a bus stop, and you're provided with a free bus pass for the duration of the stay. There's also a supermarket right across the street. Fairly clean overall. Tents are fairly cramped and wifi is spotty at best from within the tents. Nice common area to hang out in.

Cool, relatively cheap place to stay in Interlaken just down the road from Balmers hostel. Security was an issue though because they have padlocks on the tents that can only be locked from the outside, leaving your belongings vulnerable while sleeping (and our tent didn't even have the padlock, so it remained unlocked all day). Also not the greatest place to be with heavy rain and wind, as your clothes feel damp and don't dry. Nice atmosphere with both families and young travellers.

There's a fantastic atmosphere here, and the hot tub is great for warming up in on cold days. It's an experience very similar to camping but the tents are slightly nicer and don't let the rain in. There isn't loads of cooking facilities, but there is a microwave, bbq and fridge so you won't be going hungry. There's also free security lockers if you bring a padlock as well as paid ones. There's a large common room and amazing views from the site.
