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.


comes as advertised. if you are looking for a normal hostel this is not it.. a little bit closer to camping. great staff. enjoyed sitting outside in the hottub looking up into the alps. dont get that view every day!


Such an Amazing place to stay with the best views!!!!! Would reccomend hands down! Only down fall is no Kitchen but there is facilities down the road at the partner hostel you can use!!


we LOVED it here , location was beautiful, supermarket across the road, hot tub ! best place to 'camp' ever- only downfall is you have to be quiet after 10pm but thats when u walk down to the other hostel anyway :) will definatly return ! - PS GO SKYDIVING IN INTERLAKEN !!


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!
