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.

Liked: Bar downstairs was pretty good- awesome ribs on sale there.

Disliked: Breakfast felt a bit of a rip off- this is Switzerland after all- but nowhere else in town seemed to be selling breakfast so what else is there to do. Beyond that, great place,

Liked: It was the most affordable hostel we could find in Switzerland. There is a grocery not too far from the hostel. Great city to take daytrips out of.

Disliked: There was only a microwave to use to make dinner and only 2 for all guest who did not want to eat at the restaurant. The trains in the area do not accept the rail pass other than giving you a 25% discount on the ride, but it is still very expensive. Switzerland in general is extremely expensive, so its not the hostels fault for the prices, but the restaurant reflected the prices as well.

Liked: Eh.

Disliked: I didn't like how the beds were extremely creaky, if you slightly moved on the top the bottom bunk person would be distracted. Also, the whole room shook, like vibrated. It was pretty annoying as well as with the added noise coming from the bar below.
