    Absolutely LOVED staying at Balmers Tent Village! My husband and I actually changed part of our trip in Switzerland to go back to Interlaken and stay here for another couple nights! Staff is very nice, and easy to work with. Facilities are clean and the atmosphere is great. When we go back, we will be staying here again!

    One of the best hostels i'v ever stayed at! Great atmosphere, really easy to meet people, the staff were great and really helpful and it's right across the road from a supermarket and a bus stop into the town. Great perk being able to use the kitchen and other facilities at the the balmers hostel just up the road. No lockers in the tents but I just locked my bag and the tent and it was fine. Wish I had extended my stay here!

    Amazing time at the tent village!! Did not want to leave. It have everything you need and there is a shop right by to get food. Only issue was the bugs as you are in tents and there are no lockers in the tents. BUT the atmosphere was amazing and a great place to stay for the price.

    SUPER cute hostel with hammocks, pool, jacuzzi, a bar and some grills. Not camping style tents as you may think. Next to a convenience store so if you want to cook your own food and save money (since it is pricey in Switz). They have refrigerators and microwaves and if you have leftovers by the end there’s a “free shelf” so nothing goes to waste. The main Balmers hostel has a cool underground bar you can go to and the staff at both are super helpful. 10 min walking distance from eachother

    Absolutely loved our stay at this hostel! As three 20 year old girls, we felt extremely safe! The atmosphere was amazing! The location is perfectly located in Interlaken just a short walk from the city and you can see the Alps soaring above you from the hostel! They had live music on the Friday night we stayed and it was so fun to hang out in the center garden! Quiet hours start at 10 pm (unlike the main Balmer's hostel, where it is 2 am) so you can enjoy the atmosphere and still get sleep!

    The location was to die for right between the mountains it was so pleasant and calming, I would chose this hostel over any other any day. The only problem was no wifi connection in my tent. I guess only the reception area has good connectivity.

    The tent village is good fun and ideal for a cheap place to stay in Interlaken (maybe the only cheap place??). The main hostel about 10 min walk away has better facilities you can use. The view of surrounding mountains is STUNNING and it’s about a 15 min walk into the centre. There are padlocks on tents but we found they were often left open so not ideal for valuables but we had no issues. Also note there are no free bikes like advertised - this stopped last year 😔 overall good though 👍

    This was the only hostel I visited during my vacation that required payment for a locker. This surprised me as the facilities are literally tents. Like everyone else in my tent, we left our bags out and hoped nobody helped themselves (nobody did, but security cost extra in this case). If you’re looking for atmosphere past 10pm, look to stay in a building or go to town. Location was a 10 minute walk into town or a bus that comes every 30 minutes which gave the experience a nice outdoors feeling.
