Property Description

As the first private hostel in Switzerland we have been leaders in mastering the art of making your time in Interlaken unforgettable. Set in-between two crystal clear blue glacial lakes and at the base of the majestic Jungfrau mountain range, it is hard to beat for a more scenic setting.
With this in mind, Interlaken boasts some of the most adrenaline and scenic adventure activities. In the summer months one can enjoy skydiving, paragliding, canyoning, rafting, bungy out of a gondola and thousands of kilometers of hiking trails (which you can bike too).
In the winter months the area transforms itself to a winter wonderland, with sledding, snowshoeing, skiing, snowboarding, outdoor ice skating and of course skydiving and paragliding too!
When night falls and most activities are over you can enjoy some drinks (and why not some party dancing) in Nightclub/ Bar where you will meet like minded people and boast and share your adventurous days away.
Come and join us and experience what pushing your comfort zone feels like! There is something for everyone to do! All bookings can be made at our reception - don't forget to ask for our package deals!

    I have stayed at several hostels in the past couple of years and Balmer’s was hands down the best. The staff were very friendly and super helpful when my friends and I asked for advice on different hikes through Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald. The breakfast in the morning was super convenient and the bar had great beer and better food. The hammock room was the perfect place to go and chill out after a day of exploring. I would recommend Balmer’s to anyone l any day of the week!

    Excellent atmosphere and location! Only qualm would be bathroom limitations. They were working on them, but it could take a bit to find an available shower.

    This hostel was in a great location. The staff was EXTREMELY helpful in helping us plan our days & know where to go. A very social hostel which gives you the opportunity to make friends. Food at this place is AMAZING as well. (Alcohol REALLY expensive, but when isn’t it). I’d recommend to a friend!

    Facility is very nice. Has many amenities including a “club” , bars and a very cool game room. Very chill environment would definitely come back. The only inconvenience was there being no power outlets at each bed.

    Very Good

    Overall a really nice place to be! Atmosphere is super friendly and although not ultra modern, the rooms have a nice chalet feel to them. The rooms aren’t too well set out, everyone just leaves their stuff on the floor as there were no lockers or storage space in the 10 bed dorm, and the place had more Americans than America, but if you’re willing to spend a bit of money or you love hiking, the town is really nice! Check the weather before going, cause if it’s raining, there isn’t much to do

    Cool atmosphere. Staff were really nice and helpful. There is a great space downstairs to hang out and eat. The breakfast was pretty good. There was zero space to put anything in our dorm room as it was so crowded. No lockers in the room. It also smelt of feet the whole time. The showers were also pretty poor. Most extra things will cost money (towels, lockers, etc.), which wasn’t great, considering how much you’re paying a night.
