“Excellent Service and Location.”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

Staff of the hostel were all very friendly and helpful...since we were the last minute walk-in tourist, they tried their best to check the availability for us. With a very good view from the room, you can enjoy a very nice stay there.

food offered from the hotel restaurant were nice too, you can feel the chef cook with heart even its just a plate of pasta.

Most important, its just next to the Interlaken Ost station with a big supermarket (coop) opposite to it, what you can ask for more?

only limitation is you cannot enjoy wifi at room and the room is a bit stuffy without air-conditioning. however, wifi is availalble at the hotel lobby and with lots of comfortable sofa for you to enjoy some personal time, afterall, its not a big problem without wifi at room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the brienz lake, which give you a super relax stay.!

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.

Very good location (just a 2-3min) walk from Interlaken Ost train station. Very accommodating and nice customer service person (the name is Martha). We stayed there for 3 nights. All rooms have no phones or tv and some have shared baths. We took initial the shared bath rooms but later upgraded to with the private baths.

Room Tip: If you want privacy, choose the rooms with private baths.

Interlaken was the last stop of a trip I made with some friends through Switzerland and, after staying in many other Youth Hostels, it was by far the best one.
By looking at it from outside, you might think you got the wrong address because it look more like a 5-star hotel. It has a Bar & restaurant in the Lobby and also a fireplace that we really really enjoyed after a freezing night walking to the citycenter (about 1km).
Bedrooms are comfortable, clean and well equipped, you get a really tasty buffete breakfast like in most Swiss hostels.
It is also very near to the Interlaken OST train station (few hundred meters) and there is covered parking in the basement if you arrive by car (although you must pay for it) or plenty of parking spots in the street (with meter)

Room Tip: Although rooms are well noise-isolated, those who have a very light sleep might want to avoid rooms...
