My friend and I loved our stay at the tent village during our weekend trip to Interlaken. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the beds are surprisingly comfortable! The cheap price, beautiful location and hot tub definitely make it a good pick.

It was a nice change from a typical hostel. The location was beautiful and it was like a step up from camping. It was very close to town. The people were very friendly and I had a great time. I would definitely say here again.

The rooms with bunk beds are great for groups of people. We stayed the night in the rain and the walls of the tent were a bit damp but overall kept pretty dry. Wifi can be a bit spotty but works well in the central area with the bar and tables. Also great they gve you and unlimited bus pass for the entire stay! Saves at least 3.60 francs each way. Definitely a nice change from a normal hostel.

Tent village is sweet for people that want to camp but with a little more comfort. The staff is super helpful. They can book day excursions for you whether canyoning or paragliding. The beds are comfortable but pack warm it gets chilly at night! They give you a free bus pass and the town is walking distance too. Hot tub and bar and fun atmosphere. Bring a towel. Carpe diem at tent village!

Tent village is my favorite place that me and my group has stayed in during our 6 week trip around Europe! Great people that work, very helpful and informative! The tents are great and comfortable! Andy (who works at reception) is really friendly and super informative! Definitely would recommend this place to anyone who loves camping!

Loved the tents. Very quaint. Would stay again. The hot tub was awesome and all the staff were very helpful. The location wasn't the best but really only a 20 minute walk from town. Nice and quiet so if you're looking for a party hostel keep moving.
