    Super nice and cosy place. Very convenient as it is just behind the Interlaken West train station. There is a super market opposite and food downstairs the hostel as well. We will definitely come back again if we do come back to Switzerland.

    I highly recommend this hostel. The staff was extremely friendly and went above and beyond to accommodate me. I would stay here anytime I travel to Interlaken. Even my other roommates were very friendly. Fridges on every floor. Nice bed, and clean sheets. And literally 30 seconds away from one of the major train stations. I really enjoyed me stay here.

    Hostel was very clean, basic, and just what we were looking for! Location near the train station and inexpensive breakfast across the street was awesome, as was the free luggage room. Only complaints were that it was very loud at night (although that was probably due to other groups who were traveling, and not the fault of the hostel), and sometimes it was difficult to find a member of the staff if I had any questions. But otherwise, a good experience.

    Not much of a spot for backpackers! Clean and neat, heaps of kitchen stuff, showers and toilets. Laundry was a bit less accessable. Most of the people there were not young (as in they were retiree asian mums) or were not very social.

    There were not enough bathrooms, like 1 or 2 per floor, alot of families. Didn't really feel secure in the hostel, the doors didn't lock automatically so I would come back to the room and the door had been unlocked all day

    The entire property was extremely dirty. The bathrooms were never clean. There was a strange smell in the hostel all weekend. The staff is never present, only for a few hours each day and they sit in an office with the door closed. When we arrived we had to wait 5 hours until an employee arrived with our keys. She then told us that the showers are not working and we would not be able to use them..we were unable to shower for 3 days. The bedding had mold all over it and the staff didn't care.
