    An amazing experience, it was my first time staying in a hostel and I could not have had a better experience. The environment of the hostel fit well into a backpacking trip, it was very quiet at night and extremely clean while being very close to everything and easy to get around. The staff was absolutely amazing, very kind and helpful and had a best interest at heart. If you're looking for a more vibrant, party-like hostel I wouldn't recommend this one. But for backpacking this was perfect.

    Great location. Good for long term staying. They also provided other amenities like free access to swimming pool, golf, table tennis and billiards, and day ticket also up to your stay. I also like free breakfast. The bus stop just outside the main entrance which will take you to Interlaken Ost and West Bahnhof quickly.

    It’s a little walk from the train station, but otherwise it’s In a great location. The room was clean and had a great view of harder Klum. (Depending what side your on) The breakfast was simple, but included every morning. There’s a bus stop close and restaurants down the path past the park where parachutes land. A great place to stay on a budget.

    This hostel is fairly clean and has plenty of space to meet people. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and I had no problem using their sheets and towels (which I usually use my own). The rooms were cute and the views were unreal.

    Sarah, the receptionist, was so friendly. She explained everything for us and helped us to go to Grindewald telling us some tips. The hostel was pleasant. The only thing I'd recommend it is greater variability in the breakfast
