The property's response is

Dear soyeong
thanks a lot for taking the time to write a review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay at Backpackers Villa.
It's correct that some of our showers were refurbished and in parts built new. Which is why the number of available showers was reduced during your time of stay.
Now, all the building works are finished and not only are the showers new and nice, but we also have built more so there should not be any waiting time for showers any more in the future.
Best regards, Cathy

Liked: Perfect central location between the two Interlaken train stations, clean & modern facilities, free breakfast & loved that you get 2 tokens per day (either for laundry, coffee or wifi)

Disliked: Would've been nice to have activities for people to get to know each other, there were lots of cliques that just stuck to themselves. The hostel is set up to have a great social atmosphere if more activities were promoted.

Liked: Lovely atmosphere with really helpful, knowledegeable and friendly staff. The kind of place where it was great to just sit and relax in communal areas. There were several of these all with good atmospheres. Hostel is in a great location for activities and exploring Interlaken. Really enjoyed my stay, my husband and teenage girls loved it too.

Disliked: Kitchen was very busy but this is a very minor point.
