I will make this review a bit of a comparison between Balmer's Herberge and the Funny Farm since those are two of the bigger ones in Matten and I stayed with both. After spending two nights at Balmer's Herberge I decided to extend my stay in Interlaken but to move to another hostel. The Funny Farm is just a little...

Great for young backpackers. The pool with a homemade slide looked fun. Great lobby area with bar and free wifi. Can book adventure trips right at hotel and meeting place in same yard. Restaurant in hotel looked fine. Breakfast not worth the 10 Franks (have to pay if in hostel). Rooms very basic. We had a private room and at...

Very fun place to stay- however if you are looking for a quiet place- this is not it. Beautiful views out our window. Internet worked perfectly! Bar served a good selection of drinks and had a decent crowd there. Run down building, but it was cheap and they didnt charge for a third person to stay with us. It was...

Room is good. Balcony is very spacious and opens out to a view of snow capped mountains and green meadows. Prefer the room with balconies facing this side. All the facilities are fine. But for free wifi you have to go to the reception. From here going to Interlaken east or west is no issue as the bus stop is...

I highly recommend staying here for those looking to stay at a nice hostel. The place has a knack for attracting interesting people. The food was very good and the staff are highly knowledgeable and helpful.

This is a good option for low budget travelers. We stayed only for a night. It is, as the name says, a hostel. If you are one of those persons who do not want to spend too much for a good one night sleep and get ready and move on in the morning for your trip - this is one...

Very nice hotel for budget travelers, with strategic location & breathtaking views. Its an old fashioned & cosy hotel with all regular features eg. restaurant, bar, etc. Though there are some additional features such as water slide, swimming pool & lawns which are not regular feature of a budget hotel. It is almost equidistant from Interlaken Ost & West (a...

We had a poor experience of our stay in Interlaken. We were lured by the wrong pictures of hotel on the web (Adjoining hotel in the same property).. Inscriptions on the walls, poor cleanliness etc made an otherwise stunning Interlaken experience a shade less interesting. Only recommended if you are very very low on budget

This hostel is a short bus and walk from Interlaken Ost. The hostel itself is historic, it almost feels like going back in time- and that's not a bad thing. We truly enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are clean and ours had a spectacular view of the Jungfrau. The walk to town is short and charming. The staff is...
