Read the fine print before you book! We got stung with an extra $6 CHF per night for not being a member of some youth hostel thing! The hostel itself was really nice and clean, more of a hotel really. Internet only worked in the lobby so everyone would hang there including lots of families and their screaming children. No kitchen but they do offer a kettle (yew)! Breakfast was included and was nice. Resteraunt was yummy but expensive for backpackers!


facilities are superb, great location and very close the Interlaken railway station, staff are kind and helpful, one disadvantage is that WiFi is not accessible in the room but only in the lobby and common area


동역바로 옆이라 편하고 깔끔하고 주위에 마트도 있어서 좋긴한데 취사가 안되서 불편해요 조식은 좋았어요


I stayed in 4 bed mix dorm. It's super close to train station, very convenience to travel to Jungfrau and other cities around there. The hostel is pretty new, staff are great. Fairly good breakfast, there is not hot meal as usual around there. Bathroom are shared but is in good condition. They got hot water for you to make tea or instant noodle. There is a limited access to internet in the room though.


흠잡을곳없는 시설입니다! 이번여행중 가장 맘에들었습니다^ 위치 시설 친절 모두 대 만족!!


The building was nice and clean. I also liked the breakfast very much!


nice and clean. food was good. but there's no kitchen that we can cook. room condition was great. clean and neat. location was excellent!


This hostel was so clean, comfortable, and in a great location! Just seconds away from the train station and minutes away from Interlaken West, we really enjoyed our stay! We were particularly lucky because we had a 6 person room to ourselves! The staff had great suggestions for hikes and food, so definitely use them as a resource!


Excellent location. Well organized. Kind staff. Very well designed YH. The dorm I stayed had 6 beds. They put a table and chairs instead of having 2 more beds. (very considerate, thanks) There was a sliding door between bed room and lockers and sink room. This is ideal for late arrival and early departure; otherwise we had to go outside for un/packing. (very considerate, thanks) Lockers are big enough. Small place next sink to put things.Enough showers with good water pressure. Wonderful toilets


와이파이가 좀 아쉽다. 그것만빼면 최고.


Excellent but definitely not a party hostel and a little on the harder side to make good friends. Great place overall but not a typical "backpackers" haven.


Basically is good but in term of luggage security, it is a bit unsafe as everyone can take the key, open and take the luggage easily.

Everything regarding the hostel itself was great; However the atmosphere wasn't all that great, as it was mainly just people in the lobby on the internet. I don't think anyone was meeting new people and talking to each other, which is the best part of staying at a hostel!


Excellent location, very new + modern and facilities but no kitchen for guests
