    So far ok ”

    The price is fair

    I stayed here for 2 nights.. There is no air-con in the room.. and the window is mounted on the top of the room.. It was raining for the two days so i didnt open the window.. the room was therefore hot and had poor airflow. The wall is thin and i can hear for every action outside the room. Anyway, the price is fair. A bit far from the train station but the city tax provided a bus pass in return, you can use it to travel within the region freely.

    Provide kitchen, free parking but the parking lot is far away, provide local bus pass

    Be careful of the bus schedule,it ends quite early. The first night, we missed the last bus and we jumped on another route of bus asking the driver telling us the nearest spot to walk back to the hostel, but unfortunately the driver forget to tell us. Eventually we arrived another station which was even more further away. We took a taxi back to the hostel, but the taxi driver is not honest. He didn't turn on the meter and overcharged us the taxi fare. This incident gave us the bad impression during our Switzerland trip.

    Pleasant stay”

    Facilities, friendly staffs, cleanliness

    My stay in the hotel was a great experience. The hotel had welcomed me very well and allocated a room to me with a great mountain view. Its bathroom is a bit small, anyway it is not too much concern to me. There are plenty of facilities in the hotel, very suitable for young people and group to gather stay together. Bus stop is just not too far from the hotel.

    Bad sound proofing”

    Friendly staff

    We took a double room with shared bathroom. Bathroom was located diagonally across our room. As advertised, the hostel is the oldest hostel in Switzerland. Room condition is good, but floor creaks when someone walks on it and sound proofing is bad. I can hear people showering, talking, walking from my room. Not recommended for light sleepers.

    Good for those looking for a Budget accommodation”

    Good support services such as information on current weather conditions, responsive staff

    The stay was comfortable. However the hotel could have done room cleaning more frequently. Some useful fixtures in the bathroom such as hook for hanging towels and clothes would have been useful. The breakfast was minimalistic

    Clean, amenities, great service

    this was an awesome hotel to stay in! we were a bit skeptical about the shared bathroom, but it worked out fine. we shared a common area basically with another couple. in the common area were basically three rooms - kitchen, toilet w/sink, and shower. the beauty of the area enhances the nice hotel, which is kept very clean. they provide a lot of amenities like free breakfast, wifi, pool tables, ping pong, foose ball, club, a drink on arrival, jacuzzi, and more. they also have their own restaurant. also, they work together with 'outdoor interlaken' who we strongly suggest you book some sort of outdoor adventure with. we did the white water rafting, and it was incredible! staff is friendly, always available, and helpful.

    시설이 정말 별로에요”

    가격, 조식, 음.. 휴게시설?

    들어가면 빈티지한 느낌의 휴게 공간들이 있어서 나름 느낌은 있었으나, 객실이 정말 별로였어요. 저는 6인실 혼성 도미토리였는데, 침대도 별로였고(심지어 2층은 사다리도 없었어요), 공간도 좁았으며, 그와중엔 저는 여자인데 남자 5명있는 방을 줬고... 콘센트도 한쪽 벽에 있어서 멀리 가서 꽂아놓아야 했어요. 그리고 멀티콘센트 꽂으면 그냥 빠져버려서 제대로 사용도 못했구요. 샤워시설도 화장실도 다 정말 별로였습니다. 아, 유일하게 침구류 커버를 따로 주지 않고 그냥 사용하는 곳이기도 했어요. (귀찮지는 않은건 좋으나 왠지 찜찜) 스위스에서 호스텔 6군데 묵었는데, 제 개인적으로는 최악이었어요. 비추.. 하나 좋은건 조식을 준다는거네요.

    서비스, 분위기, 부가서비스

    위치는 인터라켄동역에서 꽤 멀다. 버스이용을 추천. 동양인은 적고 주로 서양인이 많고, 조식은 나쁘지 않음. 샤워룸/화장실이 여러곳에 있어 기다리지 않아 좋았음. 스위스칼을 구매하면 무료로 이름을 적어주는 서비스가 있음.
