"I loved the owner of the establishment, she is the cutest grandmother-figure. Although sometimes it was a bit difficult to get questions answered, all that was needed was a little finesse to hone the question in order…"

01 July 2010 Erik would recommend this property

Liked: This was an epic hostel experience. When we arrived, Heidi tried explaining to us that the hostel was overbooked and we couldn't be accomodated, and sorry, her english wasn't so good. When I asked her in German about the booking, it was suddenly possible to accomodate in the garage apartment downstairs, run by another nice man. The only catch was that a key for the bathroom would have to be left on the windowsil, because other people needed their roomkeys. The garage apartment later had 7 people in it, which was ok. The next night, the garage suddenly had all the furniture moved around, and there was room now for 14 people, which made the tiny room smell of feet and cheese. Luckily it was warm outside and I was able to pass out in some laurel bushes out front of the building for a while. Amazing effort from Heidi to accomodate everyone that needed a bed.

Liked: The very homely atmosphere and the colorful decor of the interiors makes it a very cheerful place to live. The old lady who owns the place is very nice and would offer you a chocolate upon chek-in. her daughter was staying up till midnight waiting for us to arrive as we got late... Very nice people very nice place, and very affordable. Awesome value for money. (no breakfast though)

DEVASHISH BANSAL

14 September 2009

Liked: It is the cheapest hostel in interlaken, managed by an old lady and her daughter, but main problem is bad smell coming everywhere in the building and somewhat in rooms too. its quite old and shabby building, there is not even handwash soap in rooms! our bed was moving here and there on every small move. you will feel low quality in everything, i will recommend this hostel only for friends and not for family.
