The room and shower room has even no any simple lock. Felt uncomfortable with the security. Toilet is more dirty than expected. It will be nicer if there is division of female and male toilet. Location is average, only bus (every half an hour) to Interlaken West is available.

Beautiful location, very social atmosphere and easy to get to everywhere in Interlaken. Loved this hostel, though I was eaten alive by either the flies or bedbugs - not sure which.

mosquitos perhaps?

Given that we were staying in tents, this was a pretty great place. Bathroom/shower facilities weren't terrific, but the water was hot! And the setting couldn't have been lovelier!

The tent village is a great concept but there are many things you could do to improve your guests experience! The staff (not all) were not particularly interested in helping... they spent most of their time socialising with each other rather than engaging with guests. The tents were tidy which was good, however the bathroom facilities were pretty grubby... Cleaning more often through the day is necessary. Other hostels organise group activities such as dinners, pub crawls etc... a great idea!

Great place to stay, best value in Switzerland for a hostel, awesome atmosphere, great view of mountains. Staff helpful.

The most amazing city I've been for such a good price. The only thing is that they should buy some fly traps... but everything else was perfect.

The Tent Village was a really cool experience. The tents are really neat, with their own locks and electricity inside too. There is a bar that has cheap drinks, but it is only open until 10 pm. There is free wifi and free coffee, and a nice open park-like area between the tents. There is a bus stop nearby to take you into the town and to excursions. The staff was really friendly too, it was great to stay here!

If you love nature, you will love here! Lots of playing facilities and nice staff! Just go out of the tent, you can breathe in fresh air and watch the mountains

INCREDIBLE!!! You must stay here! Such a unique hostel experience!! You can sit in a hot tub, swim in the pool or slack line in the Swiss Alps! One of my hostels places in Europe!

Awesome to hang out in with amazing scenic views. Bar closes at 10pm which is a bit of a shame but not too far to get to the other hostel. Free bus services provided makes it much easier to get into town. Would be nice if there were locks on the showers. Cooking facilities fairly poor

Very cool atmosphere. Hot tub and pool in a big outdoors area overlooking the alps! Everyone was very friendly. Beds were narrow but comfortable. Didn't spend much time in the tent, just sleeping. Lockers available for valuables. Large supermarket across the road for cheap dinners, BBQ available to use.
