Took a group to the hostel. Service was wonderful, rooms were clean, and the breakfasts were very good. They also cooked special orders for dinner, and accommodated dietary needs. There is plenty of space to socialize, and the location is right next to both the Harder Kulm, a main attraction in Interlaken, and the Interlaken Ost train station, which is...

We travelled to interlaken in January. The hostel is right next to the railway station. Since we were arriving pretty late in the night from Paris, we chose to be near to the railway station. As promised this property was no more then 5 minute walk from the railway station. Facilities are very basic. Cleanliness is well taken care of....

The location is truly close to the train station: Interlaken Ost, where also a big COOP on the opposite side. My family of 4 adults booked a private 4-beds bedroom. We got the corner room with river & train track view. (No noise problem). It's all clean, convenient, but very simple. Breakfast is good. In general, I think it's quite...

One of the nicest hostels I have ever stayed in. The place was extremely clean and easily accommodates many people. The breakfast was a lot nicer than expected and had a large variety compared to other hostels I have been to. The hostel is right next to the train station which made traveling to Jungfrau to ski extremely easy!

I used to stay at a hostel elsewhere before so when talking about a hostel, I always think of a place just for lodging, no service provided, no breakfast, small lobby, etc., but here at Youth Hostel Interlaken seems different. It has really nice and large lobby with a pool table. The canteen is right next to the lobby and...

This has to be the best 'Youth Hostel' ever created. A really great space on the Main Street just down from Interlaken OST. The place is full of families and people of all ages and looking at the facilities it is little wonder why the choose to stay here. You don't have to be a guest to enjoy the facilities...

Beautiful hostel. One of the best! Right by the Interlaken Ost station; convenient location, spectacular views of the alps! Very clean and modern architectural style with spacious rooms. Breakfast included, wifi in the common rooms only. They also have secure bicycle parking, which was incredible for our needs at the time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Interlaken is a town with international flair. The unique location of the youth hostel next door to Interlaken-Ost Railway Station and at the foot of the Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau mountains offers boundless pleasure for adventurous guests. A train journey up to Jungfraujoch is one of the highlights of a trip through Switzerland. Jungfraujoch also boasts the highest railway station in Europe - at an altitude of 3,454 metres in a high-alpine wonderland of ice, snow and rock. The extensive ski areas with over 200 kilometres of pistes are also very popular in winter. ... more   less
