This hostel defines what a good hostel experience can be. In fact, this hostel is so nice, it isn't even fair to compare it to other hostels I have stayed at. This place is full of thoughtful design. Let me explain some of the amazing features that no other hostel I have stayed at offered.
-The bathroom is in one room, the shower is in room next to it, and the sink is in the open when you first walk in. This is a major positive because 3 people can be getting ready at one time. One can brush their teeth, the other can shower, the other can shower, and the other can use the bathroom. BIG POSITIVE!
-there is a sliding "partitioning device" that quietly shuts between the entrance area and the bedroom area. So if you decide to get ready in the morning, you can shut this off to isolate yourself from the bedroom area.
-this place has electronic lockers that will hold all of your stuff.So no need to bring your crappy locks. Very thoughtful as well.
-there are charging outlets right above your bed. No need to leave your electronics in the open.
-electronic door locks. Just like a hotel room. No need to wake anyone up trying to open a lock up with a key.
-super centrally located. Pretty much the closest place to the train station. Also right next to two COOP stores which offer some of the cheapest dining options you will find in Switzerland...
I would gladly stay at a hostel like this over...and over and over again.
The place is basically brand new.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Interlaken is a town with international flair. The unique location of the youth hostel next door to Interlaken-Ost Railway Station and at the foot of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau mountains offers boundless pleasure for adventurous guests. A train journey up to Jungfraujoch is one of the highlights of a trip through Switzerland. Jungfraujoch also boasts the highest railway station in Europe - at an altitude of 3,454 metres in a high-alpine wonderland of ice, snow and rock. The extensive ski areas with over 200 kilometres of pistes are also very popular in winter. ... more less
