    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.

    혼자 잘 다녀왔어요 해먹이 너무 좋아서.. 잠깐 누워도 보았답니다. 밤엔 약간 무서운데 빨리걸으세요! ㅎㅎㅎ

    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.

    Very Good

    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.

    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.
