    A very nice place to stay, the rooms are nice and spacious with all you need. It’s centrally located, about a ten minute walk into town. One of the best hostels I’ve stayed in.

    Very nice and tidy place. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My friends booked before me and i booked after them. So they were given a seperate room Than me. But when we told Them that we are friends, they cooperated in a very friendly manner and put us all in a single room.

    I have been here before in Interlaken and I come back because its a great place to stay. If you plan to come to Interlaken you should check the weather so you can bring the right clothing. Te best night in interlaken in winter is Saturday for socialising. The internet is very very fast and good and free at the funny farm. One of the best parts in access to the disco/night club without going outside.

    Consider yourself lucky if you're fortunate enough to spend time at Funny Farm. The place is a beautiful ski chalet with affordable hostel prices. There is a high vibration from both the family and staff, plus a bar and a wonderfully cozy fireplace. It's a big space with a perfect location in magical mystical Interlaken. Also the bathrooms are quite luxurious and spotless. And, of course, the amazing mountain views from the balconies of the rooms. Thanks Funny Farm and family!

    If you are a regular hostel user you may be surprised when you first see this place, it’s unlike any hostel I’ve ever stayed in. This beautiful, enormous mansion has one the the most spectacular balcony views of any place I’ve stayed in the world. The place is very dated and a little shabby, but this adds to the charm. What you lack in modern creature comforts is more than made up for by the incredible views and friendly staff. Its a 15 min walk to town and stations. I would highly recommend.

    No plugs in each bed and no individual light. There are only 2 plugs in the room. There is no stairs for people who sleeps on top bunk bed. You need to find way to climb up. We mistakenly paid by Euros as we just arrived to Switzerland, yet the staff didn't inform us and when we realized we went back to exchange the money but they didn't let us do so. However, the atmosphere of the place is very good. There is free storage at the place. The bed and blanket is good

    We stayed in a 8 bed mixed dorm, with only 1 charging point in the room. Also both the days the central heater hardly worked. It was so cold during the night. Location wise it was good.
