We are every Year there for Open air Saison "Greenfield" I like the rooms it s allways clean. I like the location. And the People "customer service" are very friendly. The breakfast is very good and near to the Hostel you have Coop shop to buy things you need. Train and Bus Station usw.

Brilliantly located, just 5-10 mins walk from train and bus station as well as a super market. Very suitable for short stay! It's less expensive when compare to other accommodation in the town although there was not much amenity inside the room.

I have never stayed in a hostel before but from what others on my tour said, this one was top notch. Rooms were large and clean, but do not have air conditioning. Close to train station. Dinner, beef stew, was very tasty.

The hostel is located right next to Interlaken Ost station, where there's a big Coop supermarket as well. It's the first time I've stayed at a hostel that operates like a hotel. Everything is very systematic. The choice of interior design is very clean (imagine Wood & concrete). I'm impressed with the lockers in the rooms. Anyway, I stayed in...

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
