Liked: Gorgeous location. Free bus pass into Interlakin. Kitchen facilities. Clean and tidy.

Disliked: Needed to update their website. Paid a ridiculous amount to get out to Iseltwald via taxi because the website said the last bus was at 8pm. Only to arrive and be told the last bus was at 9pm. Meaning we could have spent a heck of a lot less to get out to Lakelodge. Extremely frustrating.

Liked: Absolutely amazing location!! Lots of things to do that don't cost money; hiking, walking trails. Other cheap options such as paddle boats. Front-facing rooms have incredible views. Heaters in rooms keep them nice and warm. Girls at reception were helpful (although not always there when needed). Such a quiet little town with the most amazing views and atmosphere. Restaurant out front has decent food and amazing setting. Easy to get to from Interlaken. A few small traditional restaurants were nice.

Disliked: Breakfast wasn't that fantastic (2 small slices of bread, jam, butter, cheese, salami). Girl at reception wasn't always there when needed, even when the sign said she was meant to be there. Not many facilities in town, although the general store has enough for basic supplies so we never had to go into Interlaken. Keys are given on a big heavy keyring which is very annoying to carry around. Wooden walls so was a bit noisy at night and early morning with people moving about. None of these really made a difference to our stay though as everything else was so fantastic!!

Liked: Awsome location. The scenery is incredible! The facilities are adequate. Don't rely on the supplied breakfast if you don't want to be hungry before lunch. The bar/restraunt beside the lake is great...a wonderful place to end an active, adrenaline filled day around Interlaken.

Disliked: We were infected with bed bugs at this hostel. I woke-up with many bites and found bed bugs under my bed's mattress. It was truely a nightmare! The bites itched for several days and our clothing and luggage/packs needed to be disinfected. This caused us to miss a full day of travel. The staff were mildly concerned when this was reported, but were were certainly not compensated in any way. Before you stay at this hostel, you want to be sure they have addressed this problem. I would do a careful inspection of your room if you plan to stay here!

Liked: The location right by the lake was great! If you have a room at the front the views from the balcony are amazing. There is an outdoor restaurant just across from the lodge which has been stylishly vamped up with an outdoor living area. The communal living area inside is well equipped including a large TV and Wii, offering a fun atmosphere to chill out in.

Disliked: The beds were not the most comfortable and the dorms for more than four people are interesting! All the beds are joined and they're not very wide, it's like one big bed for four people!

Conor O'Neill

27 May 2010 Conor would recommend this property

Liked: It was very hard to give the ratings because most things had both positives and negatives. Location - The view is spectacular, better then the photos and an amazing thing to wake up to; but there really isn't anything in Iseltwald, you have to catch the hourly bus into Interlaken for groceries and pretty much everything else, which is annoying. Staff - Jana(?spelling?) was awesome. The internet screwed up while we were there but she let us use the phone (cos we couldn't use skype) for an important phone call, and even arranged for us to be picked up by one of the staff when we had to go into Interlaken to use the internet later then when the buses go. She did a bunch of stuff that wasn't necessary but she did it anyway to help us out :); the bad thing is that often there aren't any staff around and it is sometimes quite difficult to find them!The free breakfast is a joke (2 slices of bread, one slice of cheese and ham, one little jam) but at least bread is better then nothing plus there's a kitchen and fridge so you can make your own...Free Wifi definately a plus (just didn't work when we were there).They'll also organise any adventure activities you want to do, and in certain cases the company will pick you up form the hostel. (DEFINATELY do the super long canyoning - it is so awesome and unique, DO IT!).Most of the time the place smelt pretty wierd, the kitchen was a mess (staff dont clean it), and the toilet paper ran out a lot, once for over a full day.Basically, I'd stay again because of the view, the fact that there is a kitchen and wifi, and thats about it.(PS ask for rooms 11, 12 or 13 for a balcony with excellent view)

Liked: This hostel is in a gorgeous location right on the lake and away from the main town, Interlaken. Denise/staff were extremely helpful basically planned a whole day of hiking for us and info on the best supermarket to go to etc. An improvement could be made on the kitchen as it was very basic and perhaps not big enough for when the hostel is at its most busy. Breakfast was nice and fresh! All round a great stay and would definitely recommend this hostel to others.
