    One of the best hostels I have stayed at! The staff was so nice and helpful and the rooms are all really clean. It felt more like a college dorm with hall baths and showers. But they were very clean. The breakfast was amazing as well. If you want a cheaper place that’s closer to Interlaken I would go here and spend a few days!

    This is a great hostel. It's clean, great facilities (piano, pool table, yard), good kitchen. They also included breakfast and the city included free transportation for when you stay here. The breakfast is very high quality, with amazing bread, cheeses, granola, several seeds, eggs, veggies, different types of coffee... There is guy in the reception that k ow lots of places to go out at night, as well as attractions... Highly recommend, in every aspect. Good price for everything overall.

    I absolutely loved this Hostel! Was really sad to leave. The kitchen is great, loads of space. It feels like a proper sized kitchen you would have at home with an oven and everything. Plenty of bathrooms and the showers are great too. The beds are really comfy and I found my room very pleasant. Only slight annoyance was that there is not an outlook at each bed, so I your room is full you may not always have your own outlet. The breakfast is quite nice. Youre given a free towel and bus ticket!

    A nice place with great facilities - free breakfast, a kitchen and nice dorms. I really enjoyed my stay here - just be aware that it's a 25 minute walk from the train station. However, the hostel give everyone a free travel pass to use on buses and trams etc. during your stay so the location really isn't an issue at all! The staff were lovely too! Not much opportunity for meeting people out with your dorm but still a lovely place - I would definitely stay again.

    Although a bit far away from the the city centre. There is a bus stop right outside that takes you there and it’s approximately a 10 min ride. What’s great is that the Hostel gives you a free transportation pass for the duration of stay. There wasn’t much a socialising vibe. But the free breakfast was good. And the location near the mountain was good. Just wish they had some social event that would go on. So that travellers could socialise with each other.
