First and foremost, I enjoyed my stay in the hostel. I can only give it a "3" for reasons I'll list shortly. I liked the desk staff. Very informal, college dormitory feel to the interaction and they are mostly British and Australian, so they speak English and Swiss German. I am over 50, but hostels have figured prominently in my...

After about 2 minutes in the Swiss Lodge, it's clear you're going to have a good time. Terry and Judith, the owners, speak exceptional English and are accustomed to a wide range of travelers from around the world. Not only did they offer a very tasty breakfast (included in the price of the hotel), but also great suggestions for dinner,...

Stayed for one night and found it alright. Not the nicest hostel ever and the room smelled a bit musty. Pillow wasnt the best but room was alright, bathroom was usuable and staff was helpful for information about interlaken. Definitely not a hotel and more of a backpackers place

We were in a room in the outside block of dorms/flats rather than in the rooms in the hostel. Our room had 2 bunk beds, with a small gap between them. The room was fairly small but clean. You collect your clean sheets at check in. In the communal part of the flat was a kitchen with settee and TV....

Value for money compared to the swizz charges. Good room, enough space and really neat. Rest room and Kitchen were too good. No net (very limited though it was accessible from kitchen- adjust to the room itself). No locks for the lockers (u hav to carry your own) And checkin time is 3:30 (so not possible before that to enter...

Good accommodation but was so very disappointed with the customer service from 1 particular male receptionist in the morning. We arrived around lunch time and find the hotel was closed! We knocked and this rude guy opened the door and said it's too early to check in and said check in opens at 3.30 pm. Didn't offer us to leave...

I stayed with Lazy Falken in March 2011 on my maiden trip to Switzerland. The best part is that the hotel is right in the middle of the town and walking distance from the Interlaken West station. I chose to stay in the quad dorm and found the place to be clean and well kept. They have free common internet...
