    This hostel was very interesting. It had a campground feel with small clean dorms and plenty of bathrooms, showers, and water sources. People camped around the area, which gave it a very cute atmosphere. It is in location that is directly next to the river, which gives you a gorgeous upon waking up. It’s also in a location that’s very close to great hikes and swimming accessible areas. It was also relatively inexpensive compared to various other hostels in interlaken.

    My friend and I absolutely loved our stay at River Lodge. We booked two beds in a four bed all female room for four nights, but there weren't many people on the property so we had the room to ourselves the whole time. The staff were very friendly- we'd see them every day cleaning and maintaining the property. The location is absolutely gorgeous- right on the river, less than a fifteen minute walk to Interlaken Ost station and thirty minutes to Interlaken West. If you like hiking AND comfort, GO!

    It's really cozy and in a quit good location beside the river. Just within 10 minutes to the Interlaken Ost train station, but if you have a suitcase, you might need to reach there by car road.

    Nice setting, very clean and quiet which I appreciated after traveling so long. Make sure that you’re in by 7pm so you can get a cutlery/plate box or you’ll have nothing to eat with. I would stay again.

    Very cute cabins to stay in, lovely location on the lake, exceptionally clean! Would definitely recommend staying here if you are visiting Interlaken. Staff were helpful in recommending places to see during our stay.

    I love that they clean the facilities multiple times a day. The disappointment to me is that the wifi requires a SMS text to verify and login. I travel internationally with no cell phone plan so cannot receive the text therefore did not have any wifi. The other flaw would be that there is one plug for four people to use. Location and cleanliness was great though. Close walk to Interlaken Ost.

    staffs are nice. quite attentive and willing to help.The lady boss alexendra , is super nice.. The room is okay. but only one power source and have to deposit for extended charger which i find unnecessary. Even kitchenware caps , bows , spoons can only use after deposit $. Anyway, it is worth to stay there for budget traveller.

    I hate to leave a bad review but I just wasn’t happy here. I get it, there’s no A/C in Switzerland but the rooms are hot and stuffy when trying to sleep comfortably. The shower water was cold. The kitchen was pretty dirty and there were no utensils or plates/bowls. It’s in a good location and the staff was nice. I’ve just had better experiences for that price.

    Beautiful location by the river and close to the train station, but accessed via a gravel pathway so not ideal for wheeled luggage. Small lockers in the rooms but could be accessed using everyone's keys so kind of pointless.

    Don’t make the mistake of booking here. The rooms get so hot, and if you leave your window open to make it cool then insects keep getting into the room. Bathrooms are terrible. Location is very inconvenient, it’s a long and dangerous (at night) walk to anything nearby. No shops within 15 mins walk. Lockers are small. Staff is rude and unhelpful. There’s no hostel social atmosphere, it’s all old people and families.
