  • This is the best place to stay in Interlaten i believe. You have everything that you need as a back-packer at this place.

  • Everything was wonderful, the room was clean and cozy, the hostel located with a great view of the mountains. The showers however weren't that great though and it was difficult getting hot water.

  • I stayed in a private room. The hostels in this city are expensive, so no way around paying $30-40 for a dorm and $50- plus for a private. I loved the atmosphere. It was a cabin-like atmosphere. Great for socializing. Great information. Not the best location from train station and city center. Great location for skying.

  • The staff kept on coming into our room unannounced just to "check on us." I swear he was trying to walk in on us changing. They charged us almost 20 euros because one of the people in my group left her unworn shirt on an unoccupied bed. The staff members then walks in at 6 am screaming and yelling that he was going to charge us. Very unprofessional.

  • BEST HOSTEL EVER!!! Super friendly and helpful staff, comfortable place to stay, good security, bar, grill, games room, and front desk will book activities for you. Location is pretty good too; easy to get to. So it's not the cheapest (but then again Switzerland is super expensive so there's that), but totally worth it. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
