by Divyashree R on 24 Jan 2017

We were reaching Interlaken during midnight. They have a system whereby the keys are dropped in a box out of the hostel.

Really impressive and awesome hostel. Economic with 5 star facilities

Really awesome hostel. Economic with 5 star facilities. Great location and best services. I would strongly recommend to the solo travelers and groups. Very good and cooperative staff. In front of hostel a big park and it is located in the heart of Interlaken city. Just 10 min to the train station.

Perfect for long or short stay

Our first stay at Interlaken couldn't have been at a better location. The Hostel was simply superb!! With so many laundromats, public spaces, in-dorm amenities, clean toilets and showers, no-fuss check-in an check-out, exceptional staff and kitchen facilities....overall a perfect stay for 1 night!
