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 adrenalin 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!

A continental breakfast is included from 7am to 9.30am
Our deliscious breakfast includes a choice of Joghurts, breads, jam, butter, fresh oranges,cheese and cucumbers, fruit juices, 3 types of cereals with milk and of course teas and coffes.

Please note this Hostel is not a family friendly Hostel and as such has a no under 18 policy.

    Planned to stay in Interlaken for 3 nights, ended up extending to 8. This hostel itself is a big reason why of that. It has the best amenities you could ask for, helpful & friendly staff, and one of the best social environments I've experienced abroad. It felt like I was leaving a family behind while checking out. Thank you for one of my best travel experiences Balmers!!

    This is an amazing hostel at an absolutely amazing location! Super clean, all the staff were super helpful and the facilities were great. The only downside is the lack of PowerPoints/where they are placed. This really needs to be dealt with! Apart from that, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will be recommending this hostel to everyone :)

    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at! Has everything you’d ever dream of in a hostel. Very clean and friendly staff (owner was also very kind), free breakfast, plenty of different common area spaces to hang around in whether you’re looking to socialize or find some alone time, awesome relaxation area with hammocks, games room, hot tub, and there’s also a bar attached. Will be staying here again!
