"Everything.. (staffs friendly, location, wifi, kitchen provided, view of interlaken mountain from the toilet, etc..) My favourite part was the kitchen. It was clean. It was just me and my partner that used the kitchen…"

Liked: I stayed in the first floor and the wifi signal was quite strong that it could be detected in my room.

Disliked: My family and I rented a room with 6 beds and it was so cramped that I think the room was supposedly made to fit 4 beds only.

Liked: The room was nice, if a little small. Bar was also good, and a nice place to sit out during the day, the staff were always really nice. The location is great, really close to the train station and centre.

Disliked: "Self Catering Facilities" meant a microwave... The internet was stupidly expensive.

Liked: Location, breakfast.

Disliked: The room was really really really hot, maybe because it was just on top of the kitchen from the bar. The "guests kitchen" (if you dare to call it a kitchen) had no pans, cuttlery, cups, etc. Really a shame, what is the cost of buying some basic kitchen stuff?

Liked: location and staff

Disliked: the property is made of wood and hence not sound proof at all. my friends and i can hear every word and walking steps of other lodgers from the room beside us and the room upstairs! not recommended for those who wanted to lay in till 9am as by 6ish, you hear voices and foot steps. would have appreciated if the staff more stern on discipline of all travellers

01 July 2011 Stephen would recommend this property

Liked: Super nice staff, nice bar and brasserie downstairs, free wifi, nice and clean, interlaken is a small place, so location is probably not much of an issue, but in interlaken west and a 5 minute walk from the train. We had a private room so can't comment on the shared facilities, but seemed clean.

Disliked: Not really a dislike, but ask for a room without a window over the outside part of the bar.

Liked: Location

Disliked: Creaky floors, one sarcastic, unfriendly staff, flies in the kitchen/lounge, only microwave available for cooking, only one microwavable bowl available for use, any additional has to be borrowed personally from the chef when he is free, corridor light to the corner room not working so the lock on the door cannot be seen properly, beds not very comfortable but passable.

Liked: Rooms were clean.

Disliked: Bathrooms have a leaking shower problem and caused on bathroom to have water all over the floor ALL the time. I have stayed here twice within 5 months and the bathroom issue is still occuring. Gross. Since this is one of the cheapest accomodations in town, you get a lot of younger crowd who likes to party into the wee hours of the morning. Not the fault of the hostel, that is just how it is.

Liked: We got our own room, and the bed was divine: so comfortable with a great duvet. Got some great nights' sleep. There was a sink in the room, which was nice. They had tons of information about activities to do in Interlaken, very helpful.

Disliked: The kitchen facilities were kind of sad. No stovetop, very few dishes. (But they had two microwaves.) Plus, the kitchen was not a nice place to sit and eat. The internet was outrageously expensive (I believe there was free wifi), but that seemed to be the norm for Interlaken. The shower temperature fluctuated quite a bit.
