An ideal place to stay in this region. This was our first trip to Switzerland and I couldn't have been happier with the Tent Village. The views of the surrounding mountains were stunning and everything was so close (had lovely journeys over to Grindlewald and Lauterbrunnen). The bar staff were always friendly and welcoming. The value for money was amazing...

Very amazing staff. Want to party in a nuclear bunker. This is the place to go. Beds so comfy. Breakfast had nice variety. Quite. Amazing views. Close to train station. Showeres could be changed a little as in feels like it needs to be finished renovated. Open beams and gaps between shower and wall. But great pressure. Nice temperature. And...

We had only planned to stay 3 nights here and when we arrived we were so surprised with the location and the views. After our first 2 nights we decided to extend our stay longer because the location was so handy. Sadly after a hiking accident I ended up with a broken leg. But the staff here were very helpful...

We would always have good memories of Interlaken as we stayed at this amazing place where the staff members treat you as their personal guest. Jackie, Fabien and their male colleagues all were excellent hosts and were a treat to live with. We had a memorable stay here and if we come to interlaken again we would definitely try to...

Best place for camping in Interlaken! The tents are lovely, clean and comfortable, plus: you sleep with the best view! The staff is superfriendly. The activities organized at the tents also keep you always active! The bus stop is in front of the tents, from where you can reach all places easily.

Located in the valley of the Bernese alps this hostel was perfect way to finish our interail trip. We paid roughly £70 each for 3 nights in a private 2 bed dorm (which is cheap for Switzerland!) as the shared dorms were fully booked. The room was extremely spacious and beds were extremely comfortable, so well worth the money. The...

This is a place with stunning location, surrounded by the Alps. We stayed three nights in a six-person tent. Beds were comfortable enough. The staff were friendly, helpful and down-to-earth. Also the Swiss national day was awesome, the staff organized a great party. And last but not least the Swiss tap water is super-delicious!
