We stayed here while my friends ran the Jungfrau marathon and couldn't have asked for a better hostel! We were in a private 4 bedroom room and it was exactly like staying in a hotel except that we had more storage, lots of kitchen space, and places to hang out. The location (across the street from where the marathon started)...

It's my second time traveling in Switzerland. Knowing how expensive the accommodation in Switzerland can be, Backpackers Villa Sonnenhof is a true surprise: clean, well equipped (own kitchen, social area, WLAN everywhere), nice service (two tokens per day for drinks), excellent location, and reasonable prices. I will definitely choose the same hostel next time traveling to Interlaken.

We were a family of 4 with young kids and stayed for 3 nights in a 4 room dorm with private bathroom. It was great. The shared kitchen helped save some money and the free laundry and coffee tokens were put to good use. Free WiFi was also another great perk.

Our trip to Interlaken was my first since I spent a week at Ballmer's climbing mountains in the Berner Oberland 20 years ago. I took a brief look at Ballmer's again, but knew that it was more for partying 20 year olds, not for a family of five (this was of course confirmed by a brief swing by the old...

Very accomodating staff. They booked our hang gliding, paragliding and white water rafting. The weather was very unpredictable and they kept us informed about our cancellations and rescheduling. Great service that let us relax and enjoy our vacation.

We stayed one night at this place. The whole stay way very enjoyable. We arrived too early (9AM) to check in, but were able to leave our car at the (free!) parking while we went to visit Schynige Platte. Location is very convenient. Close to train station, walking distance to various restaurants and shops but still very quiet. We had...

I think the bed cost me CHF28, so it was really cheap for what I got. The bed was comfy, the place was clean, staff were nice, and you get a good breakfast included.
