Couldn't get over how perfect this hostel was. It's a great location that's not at all too loud, and all of the facilities were impeccably clean. There were many communal gathering spaces including a few outdoor areas as well. The staff were so friendly and helpful in giving us maps and recommendations for hiking. Can't recommend strongly enough!

This was easily one of the best hostels i have been in! The staff was awesome and super helpful! The whole building was nice, well kept, and clean! You get your own bathroom and shower in each room. Just a great comfortable place in a good location!

Great, friendly staff and very nice living quarters. The kitchen in the basement is great for saving money by cooking, especially since Interlaken is such an expensive place. The front desk was great for recommending things to do. The common areas are good (but not great) for meeting other people, and the free breakfast is solid.

My stay at Backpackers Villa was absolutley great! The location and staff were all wonderful, and the hostel itself was really clean and safe. They had everything you needed and more. 10/10 would recommend this hostel to anyone who's traveling to Interlaken. Thank you for a fantastic weekend and if in the future I'm back in Switzerland I would definetely stay here again!

The location and amenities that backpackers villa provides you with are incredible. The staff are super friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here. The only thing that could be improved is needing a key to get through the front door as I feel anyone could walk through the door without them knowing.

Incredible hostel. I’ve stayed in quite a few I believe Switzerland, and it’s nicer than the rest. They have everything you need for a pleasant stay. Nice facilities, plug ins next to your bed, high quality clean showers, lockers to store your stuff before check in and once in your room. Your bed is made for you. They have breakfast. The staff is VERY nice and helpful. They give you a visitor pass. The list goes on. The most hotel-like hostel ever.

Third time staying here and it has been great every time. I love the token system and the beds are very comfortable. Large lockers in the room and the location is great!

Very good facilities, provided breakfast, laundry, toiletries and even other useful stuff like snow shoes. Location is excellent too.

Nice place! Pretty central location in Interlaken, walking distance from the train station. Lockers were large and secure. They give you tokens when you check in that you can use for laundry which is awesome! The free breakfast is a plus.

One of the best hostels in which I've stayed. The staff was friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Backpackers Villa is in the ideal location, and they provide a free bus pass to get around the city and surrounding areas. Hostel is clean and provides a lot of extras. 10 out of 10. I would come back to Interlaken just to stay here.

Fantastic hostel. Lots of little extras included including travel discounts, bus passes, free washing and trying (with the hostels tokens) and the free use of a towel! The staff were brilliant.They were always willing to help with planning of hikes and what to do around the area. If you go to Interlaken stay here.

I had one of the best experiecnces I have ever had in a hostel here. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful with recommendations for food and for hiking in the area, and were always available when I needed help. They provide free breakfast, free linens, free towels, free hot drinks and laundry, and the building itself is so pretty and fun to stay in. I made friends with a few girls in my room and we ending up hiking and hanging out together. All in all a great experience.

Good overall! Rooms clean and staff very helpful.

I booked the private room - this is seriously better than the dorms and definitely worth the extra money. Breakfast could have been better... there was only toast, yogurt, and cereal.

Amazing hostel. My critic goes to the fact that, despite being so huge, the kitchen was always completely full by an enormous group. I have no idea if they were together or just met, but they were extremely loud, using all the stoves and utensils, even cutting meet with a pair of scissors or eating directly from the pots were they had cooked. I don't know if this is usual in the hostel or not, but I had to eat either at 6pm or at 11pm and always re-wash everything since it was dirty.

Spectacularly clean and orderly. This place had way more than we anticipated. Great value for money in Switzerland

No compaints. Good hostel. Good location. If I had to not pick I’d say vending machine was quite expensive, however just go to the local shop.

One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed at. Front desk was very friendly and helpful. Close to everything in town with plenty of parking for our rental car. The tokens given for free laundry, coffee were definitely an added bonus. Loved that linen and towels were included as well. Plenty of common areas to hangout in. Would stay here again.

This Hostel was a 10!! One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Very well run. Extremely clean. Staff is INCREDIBLE!! Free breakfast, basic cereals, granola, yogurt, juice, bread with jams. They give you 2 tokens for every night you stay. Can use them for hot beverages or FREE laundry!!! Huge kitchen area downstairs. No organized social events but i LOVED my stay here. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Interlaken. And you get a free local bus and train card. They have everything you need!

This was an amazing Hostel! The staff were incredibly helpful with booking trips or recommending activities and additionally considerate if we were checking-in or out outside of typical office hours. I would recommend staying at this hostel always and above any of the hotels in Interlaken.

This hostel was really good. Very clean, tidy. The atmosphere wasn’t like some other hostels I have stayed in across the world, people don’t really talk to each other much and some people on their own may find it a little isolating. We stayed in a 6 bed dorm with 4 other girls but they were really rude and inconsiderate. The staff moved us to a private room for a highly discount rate which we really appreciated. The breakfast was great as were the views from the terrace. Would recommend.

Very clean and comfortable, however the set up of the room was quite cramped, with the lockers right in front of the door making entry difficult at times. The breakfast was very limited, only toast and cereal with a couple jams and one type of yogurt, but everything was very tasty. All in all a great stay

Backpackers villa was great, easy location to stay at during our time in Interlaken. Staff was extremely helpful with setting up day adventures as well recommendations for food in the evenings. The dorm rooms are snug so it can be a rough go in the morning with a full room but facilities were very clean and nice. Laundry tokens were also great.

October 6 2018, hostelworld.com

This was the best hostel I’ve stayed in so far. The rooms and bathrooms were kept very clean, they gave you tokens so you could do things like laundry and get coffee for free, and the staff were super helpful any time I had asked for recommendations on places to go or things to do.
