Had an great stay at Backpackers Villa! Staff was friendly and helpful and the room was clean with a gorgeous view of the mountains! I appreciated the kitchen space provided where we made our own dinner. The space was clean and spacious with everything we needed to cook. Due to a delay in our paragliding trip, we had to stay an extra night. Booking at the front desk was simple and convenient. A must stay in Interlaken, especially for traveling students!!

Everything was just perfect! During our stay there were not many guests around, so we had a dorm room for ourselves. The facilities were super clean, beds were comfortable and the rooms are really nice and bright. I especially liked the chill out room and the lobby area. The kitchen is also very big! Small breakfast and towels are included in the prize, and you can ask for a lot of more things that are free, for example borrow winter boots, soap, washing machine, use lockers for free etc.

Backpackers Villa Sonnenhof was a remarkable stay! They quickly accommodated adding a friend into our room and were very hospitable and welcoming. They were very helpful and easy to communicate with, and made our first experience in a hostel very memorable and pleasant! We really enjoyed the common area, with complementary water and tea at all times, and the availability to get coffee and hot chocolate as well! The free breakfast was great and everything was very clean and well kept! Thank you!

Great common area. So many free perks. Loved every bit of it. I extended my trip to stay here 3 nights instead of one after the first day.

I really enjoyed my stay at Backpackers Villa Sonnenhof. The staff was amazingly friendly and helped me out with hiking advices. Also, it was very clean and there was free coffee in the morning (what is always great!). The kitchen was also well equiped eventhough I didn't use it much. What I noticed very positively is that they apparently adapted the bookings to Corona, because i had the dormitory to myself, what I found very pleasant in this situation. All in all: very great hostel!

Backpackers Villa was an exceptionally clean, very nice hostel in interlaken. The staff at the front desk are very helpful resources when deciding what to do to, and I felt like when they book activities for you they chose places with good reviews and prices. The maid service was exceptional and the kitchen had everything (minus an oven). The breakfast selection was small but all you could eat and filling enough for an active day. Great hostel!

Backpackers Villa was amazing. There were so many perks I didn’t know about when I booked. When my friends and I arrived, Catherine was so kind, enthusiastic, and informative. Throughout our stay all of the staff were quick to supply recommendations, maps, and guidance to anything we wanted to see or do. Everything was CLEAN and maintained that way through the stay. All facilities were a great size- kitchen, laundry, community spaces. The location in Interlaken was perfect. 10/10 recommend.

This hostel is rated as the best hostel in Switzerland for a reason. I never saw any trash on the ground. Everything always smelled nice. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was sufficient. I loved that there was a downstairs area with foosball and for luggage and outside there was ping pong and billiard area. The views from the hostel were magnificent. The only thing I would complain about is that our room was stuffy and warm but that's because someone in the room turned the heat up.
