“Outside beautiful, inside lacking”
Reviewed 18 July 2012 via mobile

Strengths:
- friendly staff (when available), helped secure bookings for activities and provide information as requested
- quick check in process
- great courtyard / on roof area (beautiful sunset)
- small bar downstairs (didn't personally use it, didn't see many people in there)

Weaknesses:
- wifi connection hardly ever connects (unless u sit downstairs)
- dusty smell throughout the rooms / building (partner didn't smell it as much as I did)
- next to train railways / constant loud noise
- sink in bedroom rather than inside the ensuit (private double room)
- tiny shared fridge (clearly not enough space for a full hostel)
- no real interactive guest spots

We didn't have reservations when we got to Interlaken and the local tourist information found the last room in town for a family of four at the Alps Lodge. It was a great price for that city (very expensive) and close to the train station. Very clean and the beds are soooo comfortable...best night sleep we got on our 18 day vacation in Europe! We stayed two nights and will most certainly stay there again, when we go back.
Friendly and very helpful staff and great location!!

Charming hostel, nice and bright and quite spacious.

We stayed in a 6 bed dorm (shared bathrooms), on the first floor. Unfortunately there were no lockers so it felt a bit unsecure.

Staff were friendly enough - there was an incident one night where a guest threw up all over the room at 1.30am, and the lady at reception immediately moved the remaining 5 of us to another room on the third floor.

Good location, supermarket right opposite.

One negative was that bathrooms were insufficient for demand. On about 4 occasions they were full when I needed to go to the bathroom. There were three of us wandering to each floor looking for a free bathroom - perhaps would be better if showers were separate from toilets.

Equipped kitchen available for use, plus fridge.

Wifi offered for free, and worked in both our rooms.

No curfew.

Room Tip: Room 15 was good. Room 37 was a bit cramped.

This was probably my favourite hostel that we stayed in on our whole trip. The hostel it self was just a regular hostel but the atmosphere when we went there was amung the best. We met the best friends there that we ended up travelling with and the staff was very friendly and helpful. While in interlaken we went canyonning and hiking and there were many other activities to do there. The bar scene there is not very happening but if you meet the right people you can surely have a lot of fun. It was one of the most beautiful places ever and the view from the hostel is amazing. I loved that alp lodge had a kitchen because then you could go to the store and make your own meals instead of paying for meals everyday as it is expensive there. overall I would suggest this hostel to anyone who is young and has an outgoing personality to meet new people and do adventurous things. I would definatelty go back here in a second the staff was very friendly and helpful as well in helping plan your activities. There is also a bar in the hostel which they let you drink your own booze at as long as you bought a couple drinks which I thought was unreal.

We really enjoyed our stay at Alp lodge Interlaken,

Had a lovely view from the room.
People were friendly and helpful
Very Clean,
Very close to Interlaken West, just 5 mins

You will not find any such place at this rate in Interlaken, its complete value for money.

We would definitely recommend this place, you have a well equipped shared kitchen as well.

Rickety rooms with rickety beds but clean and safe. Free wifi courtesy of the adjoining 3 star sister hotel. Access to the balcony was through the toilet.

Room Tip: Take the highest available floor for best view.
