The tents are comfortable and quaint! The only complaint is that we wished there was a fan in the tent because it got hot in the day time. Also, the manager of the hostel, Andi, was very helpful and hiking around the Alps was amazing, just be careful coming down the mountains!

Very fun, safe, comfortable. Excellent staff who gave us insider tips on where to go and what to do. Got a little cold in the tent one night but was perfect the other two nights we stayed.


The staff were the highlight for us, particularly Andy and Taz, made our trip unforgettable. We also met the owner Eric who was a lot of fun and very down to earth. You can book all your adventure sports and day trips through the hostel itself which is very convenient. Then throw in the bar, music, pool, jacuzzi, table tennis, table soccer, etc etc. Highly recommend this hotel.

Thanks for the great review, we love it when guests have a great time!


We went in early summer and it was freezing. But their showers didnt have any hot water at all. The hot water reserve was also always empty. Other than that, very friendly staff! Very close to nature, very nice scenic views.

This is the coolest! The staff member that checked us in was awesome and recommended a great hike and gondola ride to Murren. This spot is great. The bus system is easy to access and can be used for free with the provided visitor card.

So glad to hear you had such a great time! Thank you for the rocking review!


Poor warm water 5 station away by bus from central. Last bus for tent village is at 10:30 but it did not show up when I tried to take. So I took a taxi. You need to take bus at least 8:30pm from central to go tent village if you don't want to be like my situation. Good atmosphere. You can hear horse and bird sound when you wake up in the morning. Also you can see wonderful mountain view with cloud when you come out from your tent in every morning.


Great hostel if you're looking for a different hostel experience!Not your typical stay as you are staying in legitimate tents. We stayed 3 nights, the first night it was raining quite hard which gave it a very nice outdoors feel.The second night was very windy and the tent was rather loud when the wind beat upon it but none the less an interesting experience.The location is great, short 10 minute walk to the bus station which can transport you to anywhere necessary in Interlaken.Great atmosphere
