We are pleased to welcome all backpacker, travellers, hikers and bikers. Our cosy hostel is situated at lake Brienz and offers excellent outdoor furnishings and panoramic views.

The Lake Lodge is a friendly hostel built in typical Swiss chalet style and lies directly on the shores of the picturesque bay of Iseltwald, a village which has been able to maintain its traditional customs. The idyllic fishing village on the south shore of the Lake Brienz is still tranquil and unspoiled. Although Interlaken with all its touristic attractions and shopping opportunities is accessible by car within only 10 minutes. The bus goes hourly to Interlaken where one can find optimal train connections to anywhere in the world including the airports in Zürich, Basel and Geneva.

Enjoy the breathtaking sight of the mountains and lakeside in the beautiful Berner Oberland with a view of the Lake Brienz, the Snail Island and the amazing mountain scenery stretching from the Harder towards “Hasli” and around the “Brienzer Rothorn”.

Nature lovers will find countless hiking and bike paths at their disposal as well as alpine summits within easy reach. Even for those who want an adrenaline-kick there is a wide choice of adventure sports, such as parachute jumping, paragliding, hang gliding, river rafting, bungee jumping and much more. Our house guests have kayaks at their disposal for only CHF 18.00.

    Staff were really welcoming, very helpful and gave us all we needed with no hesitation. The room was stunning, lovely balcony looking over the lake and a very cosy double bed. The location could not have been more perfect. I wi definitely be back.

    One of the best hostels I ever stayed! It’s perfect if you want to have a proper Swiss experience. We had a room for the Mountain View but had a free upgrade for the lake view and it was amazing. The staff was so nice as well. Definitely recommend it.

    This is a great hostel in a fantastic location. Just steps away from the lake you can easily swim or kayak. Pretty walking and hiking trails right from the front door. Iseltwald can accessed via car, bus, boat or bike. We stayed in early summer but it is close to the ski resorts which can easily be accessed via car or bus. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. There is a very good restaurant attached to the hostel, right on the lake. The hostel also has apartments - see their website.

    Nice guesthouse for family, feeling at home there with nice staff. Very basic but the best is around the hostel. It's just very noisy with the wood cracking all the time when you walk but thanksfully they are giving ear plugs.

    Beautiful location overlooking the lake with hills in the background. Lucky for us the place was quiet, could feel cramped with more occupancy. Usual issues of thin, smallish rooms and limited shower/toilet facilities on each floor. Also hostel is some distance from town and last bus leaves at 8pm when we stayed, 9pm in summer, and the taxi from town was 50-70f for the short 10min journey. As we stayed in low season, we didn't experience the full range of activities. We enjoyed our stay.

    I am okay with Lake Lodge Iseltwald surrounded by very beautiful atmosphere but a little bit to far from the city bus just once per hour.

    Services could have been way better. Kitchen was closed ( though i stayed in interlaken everything was open there) .NO SOAP IN WASHROOM. NO TOWELS. NO BREAKFAST INCLUDED. I THINK WHEN YOU PAY MORE THEN 105 FOR A NIGHT SERVICES COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER.
