Reviewers have called it 'the best hostel ever', saying that the luxurious atmosphere leaves you feeling like you're staying in an upmarket hotel.

    This was the best hostel I’ve stayed in! In terms of facilities and the cleanliness, this felt more like a hotel than a hostel. For a tired backpacker who’s been going around from city to city, it was perfect to just rest in a clean, beautifully managed hostel like this. The only downside is the atmosphere, or the lack thereof. But apart from this, it was such a good stay.

    Beautiful hostel in Interlaken! Breakfast is excellent, staff are very helpful and it has a very comfortable atmosphere. Views from the hostel are amazing! Rooms are a bit tight, but that was the only issue. Otherwise, highly recommend this place!

    It was an amazing hostel and I would suggest to anyone to stay here. I had a great time and really enjoyed my visit. What stood out the most was the staff they were so helpful and gave so many suggestions of things to do and places to go. Also gave you discounts for different places. The only downside was the atmosphere, my friend and I were traveling college students, many people that stayed there were a little older and didn't speak English, so we felt isolated.

    Good value for money, with free dryer and washing of clothes during your stay. You also get a free hot drink everyday. Breakfast is basic, but you can eat to your fill. Lockers are large, toilets and beds are clean. Charging ports are at your bed. You have to arrive earlier to use the stoves, as there are many Koreans who will cook up a feast around 6pm.

    I'm a fan! I have no idea why, but this hostel is insanely popular with South Koreans, so it was a bit difficult to find anyone to talk to haha.
