"I like very much the location of the hostel. We arrived late in the night and went straight to bed. When we woke up in the morning, the view through the window amazed us. I liked the fact that there were cayaks…"

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)

08 April 2010 Carrie would recommend this property

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.

Liked: The location is excellent as it is right on the Brienz lake.The hostel incharge was very friendly and helpful.It is a bit far away from Interlaken and there is only 1 bus every hour to and from Interlaken. Only the 4, 6 and 8 bed rooms had the lake view. The rooms were a bit small.
