    This one the best hostel that I've stayed at. I had a really rough day the day I checked in after missing my train and flight, and the staff made my day so much better as they were so friendly and helpful. The entire place is so clean, and there was a personal sink in our room, which was nice. The location is PERFECT for anywhere in Interlaken as it is right in the city center. They give you 2 tokens a day that you can use for laundry or a hot drink (the hot chocolate was fire). Overall, 10/10.

    What an amazing hostel. We had to check out early so would miss breakfast. The hostel actually gave us snacks to take with us instead. Really clean and wonderful amenities.

    One of the best homey hostels ive stayed in. Everything is so clean and the facilities are unbelievable. The location is absolutely perfect and the staff are all awesome and lovely. I can't recommend it enough. You are better off making this your base and taking day trips to other places like Lautenbrunn because this hostel is that good.

    Awesome hostel in the middle of town, equal distance from Ost or West! Ton of amenities that were great: laundry, big lockers for luggage storage, plenty of cooking space. The rooms were great and very comfy beds (I wish the pillows were a little bigger, but just fold them over). Bathrooms were very clean and good sized showers. Never had to wait for either. They also provide bus tickets, towel, maps, and breakfast! Would highly recommend! Loved staying here!

    The hostel itself was great. Nice clean rooms, extremely friendly staff, free breakfast provided (quite a spread as far as hostel breakfasts go) and free laundry services. However, my stay was marred by an absolute swarm of Korean tourists. They occupied the kitchen from 6pm to 9pm, crowded every single common space, and made alot of noise. Hostel itself is great, but my stay wasn't.
