    This hostel was SO NICE!! Felt more like a hotel than anything. The rooms were the cleanest I've ever seen for a hostel, the staff was so helpful, and the breakfast/coffee coins were a great added in bonus. I would 100% recommend staying here!

    Couldn't get over how perfect this hostel was. It's a great location that's not at all too loud, and all of the facilities were impeccably clean. There were many communal gathering spaces including a few outdoor areas as well. The staff were so friendly and helpful in giving us maps and recommendations for hiking. Can't recommend strongly enough!

    12/10. Very easy to find after getting off the train because of it's great location. It is a very well known hostel so many people are able to direct you, but there are also signs on the streets! The staff greeted me with many smiles and were very helpful in planning my stay in Interlaken as well as giving me information about the town. The hostel has an amazing atmosphere; warm and cozy. They offer a great free breakfast, towel, bus card, music room and MUCH MORE. All the love for this hostel

    Great hostel w/ a lot of facilities provided. Laundry/computer with tokens (2 free for each night), a whole kitchen, a tv room, & other recreational activities if weather permits. All tourists are given a card for discounts at some restaurants & free public transportation. The 6 dorm rooms don't feel cramped. My rating went down only due to the roommates and their lack of consideration. Other than that, the hostel is great, just Switzerland overall is a bit expensive. I'd come back here.
