Property Description

-- Important Info: Please note this Hostel is not a family-friendly hostel and all guests have to be at least 18 years old.--

Come to Balmers and stay in the oldest private hostel in Switzerland! Our hostel is situated in three traditional Swiss wooden chalets that surround a courtyard, terras and garden. The look and feel of our accommodation can best be described as playful, comfy and unique.

We cater to active travellers that come to Interlaken to explore the Alps. After a day in the mountains, come home to our hostel where you can clean the equipment and store it away safely. In the guest kitchen, you’ll find all the amenities needed to cook yourself a nutritious meal. No need to plan your meals ahead, as the supermarket is just 2min walk away and open 365days a year.

After food, it's time to relax! Treat your sore muscles in our outside jacuzzi that's free for guests to use. You can stream your favourite movie in our cosy TV room or get comfortable in front of the fireplace. Other popular spots in the hostel are the music room, equipped with two pianos and a guitar, and the hammock/meditation/yoga room.

Known as the adventure capital of Europe, Interlaken is the perfect destination for enthusiasts of the outdoors. Prepare to be awed when you start to explore the stunning Swiss Alps that rise up behind Interlaken. Mönch, Eiger, and Jungfrau are among the most well-known peaks in the area, all summits around 4000m. Surrounding these peaks lies a rugged landscape with alpine tundra, glaciers, canyons, forest, waterfalls and glacial lakes.

Our reception staff know all the great hikes, bike trails and sightseeing spots in the region. Talk to them if you want help with planning next day’s adventure or if you want more info on the activities such as paragliding, skydiving, rafting and canyoning.

Good place to meet people. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. They have activities planned through out the week that brings a lot of people together. Also location is convenient as you can easily take public transportation to many nearby villages. Would come back again :)
