Happy Inn Lodge

Reviewed 25 July 2013

Let me start by saying that as two girls traveling, my standards weren't very high to begin with. I have a high tolerance for noise and understand that when staying in a hostel, it isn't exactly luxurious. However, this hostel is extremely noisy, even on week nights and is not very "diversified". The rooms are very small, and to squeeze 6 people in a room that could barely accommodate three is just insanity. Mind you, I am by no means expecting to have a spacious living area. Based on other reviews, I had expected it to be exactly what I paid for, but even for the bare minimums this is uncomfortable. By the second night I was seriously considering staying somewhere else and just losing my deposit on the rooms. I would suggest to other to seriously consider a different location, and if you are on a tight budget like us, stay here no more than one night and then spend the money elsewhere. It will be worth it in the long run.

It is a typical hostel, many levels and rooms. We have a two person twin room with bunk beds and a sink in the room. It was clean and bed reasonable for the cheaper price. Bathrooms and facilities clean, not always soap though. You can book lots of activities at he downstairs restaurant desk like paragliding. Overall would do again for the price!

We were advised by Hotel Krebs about this modest and great value restaurant at this budget hotel. Run by a friendly chap from Bolton, It was off the main touristy road which had many pizzerias to offer. This place served a tasty variety of salads, pastas, ribs, steaks with a swiss twist! Interlaken is not cheap, but the chef produced good quality food for around £25 a head including drinks and service.

We spent four nights in 8-private room so we were lucky to be relatively far from the bar. It wasn´t noisy at all as we were afraid and beds were comfortable. The location near the Interlaken West train station was excellent (one street away) and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The cleaness wasn´t perfect, as expected for a hostel with so many guests but it wasn´t fault of the staff but rude guests who weren´t able to clean the mess in showers. I can definitely recommend it but it probably depends on the room.

This is basically a hostel that has a few private rooms,some with ensuite bathroom. We rented a private room with ensuite bathroom for 5 days ad paid about CHF 105 per day. The room (no. 100) was relatively small but reasonable and clean with well equipped bathroom, including one set of towels. Free parking is available and we received visitors cards that entitled us discounts at some attractions such as Shilthorn and Harder kulm and free bus service we didn't need. The staff was very nice and helpful. The lodge is centrally located.

This was a very pleasant experience and very good value by Swiss prices. It is a very vibrant place, very close to Interlaken West Railway Station, with lots going on. We had a double room with our own sink, standard lamp, and both sheets and towels provided. Only minor niggle was having to go down to the next floor down to the toilets and showers.
Breakfast was typical continental with as much coffee or tea as you can drink, but if you self cater there are two microwaves, two toasters and two kettles with plenty of seating. here is a cutlery drawer but not too much cutlery if there are a lot of people using it.
The staff were very helpful and made you feel really at home. Also if you wanted to eat in the food was good and resonably priced.

Room Tip: Read as many reviews as you can.

I stayed at Happy inn lodge for 2 days. There re rooms on the third floor and there s no an elevator so you need to carry all your luggages by yourself. Our room is a triple bed with shared bathroom. Actually i thought i have booked a private bathroom. Anyway everything was fine, clean bathroom and available all the time. There s the kitchen for you to cook with the utensils or you can order from the bar. What I don't like is the floor board was so old and cracked.Well its the nice hostel for the cheap budget backpackers.
