The property was great! Weird groups of tours and antisocial people but I found a wonderful group to hang out with luckily—it’s not very social. The sheets were horrible but the bed was comfy, bathrooms were VERY clean, and the room I was in was nice. Happened to get a 6 bedroom when I bought a 10 so that was nice! The staff was lovely but were weird about the quiet room when I told them I had meetings at midnight, which was weird since it said open 24/7 online.

This place won best hostel of Switzerland a few times. I am not surprised. I have travelled a lot and I have to say everything was excellent. A special mention to the receptionist Sara who gave me a lot of information on hiking routes, and gave me an upgrade on my room. I decided to book another 2 days and Sara offered me an upgrade yet again. I would recommend this hostel if staying in the Interlaken/Lauterbrunnen/Grindelwald area.

This was the best hostel I've stayed at in my one month solo trip. The location is amazing, mountains everywhere you look. The facilities are amazing. The kitchen was massive, tables and seats for everyone to sit. The bathrooms and showers were nice. One improvement is for guests to have curtains for their bed. It was cool to see all ethnicities - I wish I met some Koreans but they seem to stick to their own group.

Great place to stay. they have laundry, a game room free breakfast, a friendly staff, and even their own tour. It’s walking distance from everything you need. The only thing that can make this place better, is lockers inside the room instead of outside and black out curtains for the bunk.
