Standard Swiss YHA: clean, friendly staff (who spoke good English), safe, cheapest accommodation around, decent wifi, free swiss breakfast, lockers that require a 2CHF deposit but are otherwise free, limited staff hours. Easy and pleasant 10 minute walk from the train station and Brienz itself (just follow the lakeside path). A Brienz guest card is provided for free offering local...

I had to book this hostel on last moment. After reading the reviews on tripadvisor, we were worried about our stay in youth hostel. But to our surprise, our stay was very very very pleasant. Lady at reception is very helpful and guided us really very well. Full marks to cleanliness, breakfast and location. Very nice view of Lake brienz...

I am Swiss, and I will be honest I didn't appreciate the hypocrite welcome... We were a couple and arrived quite late. Couldn't find the place so we called the youth hostel for directions. We were nicely helped and told to come in the parking of the hostel. Upon arrival, we were asked for an extra money because we weren't...

This was my first time ever to use a Youth Hostel and I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and the facilities. I used this as a 3 night base whilst I took part in the local Alpenbrevet cycling challenge and chose it primarily based on cost. As I soon found out Switzerland is uber expensive with...

The youth hostel is beautifully placed just next to Lake Brienz, but to get into the village of Brienz you have to take a walk for about 20 minutes. We stayed one night in a mixed dormatory were there was places for approximately 20 persons. If you don't need to have a private room this is a very good option,...

Fortunately we only stayed here less than 12hrs b/c we were spent the day travelling from Lucerne and cruising the lakes ( which are awesome and relaxing btw). we requested a double room and ended up with a tiny room the size of a closet w/ a bunkbed, instead of 2 single beds pushed together like in other spacious hostels...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Brienz lies at the upper end of the Lake of Brienz, surrounded by beautiful alpine scenery, which provides numerous, rewarding excursion destinations. A trip on Brienz's steam-driven Rothornbahn, with its magnificent views, is an adventure for young and old alike. Alternatively you can take in the same views on a ramble to the Axalp. Brienz is an ideal water-sports area in the summer. And if this is not enough for you, there's always a visit to the tourist museum in Unterseen, near Interlaken or a trip, high above, to the Jungfrau, the Niesen or any of the other beautiful mountains of the region. ... more   less
