    Everything was good, staff was friendly and helpful. Clean bathrooms just floor of the room made a lot of noise. And i think the guy at the reception charged me more. While booking the room i paid a booking amount and usually all the hostels I've been to, charge the rest of the amount but, he charged me the total amount and told me that the booking amount was a commission to the app. Which is weird because this has never happened with me earlier and even after it when i went to other cities.

    We had a great stay at the happy inn lodge. The price was amazing for the location especially given how expensive Switzerland can be! The kitchen was a great bonus allowing us to save some money (just a microwave and kettle but helpful nonetheless). We would definitely come back here if we were to visit again!

    Otherwise nice hostel, but it was very noisy during night time. There is a loud bar downstairs but no soundproofing (amount of noise probably depens on the location of the room). Self-catering kitchen was okay. There wasn't an oven or a stove but we managed with a rice cooker and a kettle. Toilets and showers were renovated and they were really good looking and clean.

    This hostel was cool and in a pretty central location. I didn’t like that there were lockers in the rooms but not anywhere to actually put a lock on it. You could only do that in the luggage room downstairs. There also was a kitchen, but no stove. The restaurant area was cool but it would’ve been nice if there was more of a common area where you didn’t have to pay to eat or drink. Overall the vibes were pretty good

    I would absolutely recommend staying at the Happy Inn if you’re looking to stay in Interlaken. It’s pretty afordable, easy to figure out, and it’s location is perfect. The only two problems are the lack of kitchen facilities, so you won’t be able to cook really any hot meals, and the creaky floors in the dorms. Anybody coming or going is almost guaranteed to wake up the whole room at night. But other than these two small things, it’s a great place to stay.

    The self-catering facility consisted of only a microwave, a rice cooker, a toaster and a water kettle. There’s also a concert which happened on a Thursday night. Since there was a bar downstairs, it was quite noisy (when there was a concert). Other than that, everything was OK.

    Very affordable and convenient hostel. Located only 5 mins from the train station and close to several buses that take you around interlaken. The rooms have a sink insides which was really nice. My main critique is that the bathrooms are unisex, and the rooms are very small. Also the lockers require you to bring your own lock.

    Happy Inn Lodge is quite dated and simple, but it was clean and the staff was friendly. If you plan to hike and adventure rather than stay in your room, it’s totally worth saving the money and staying here. Interlaken west train station is super close
