Lakelodge hostel is a little far off from Interlaken(Takes 30 minutes to reach Interlaken). The building is very old and there are no lifts. Our private room was on the 3rd floor and we had to carry our luggage to the top every time, which was a pain. The building is small and congested and the bad smell of the... More

This hostel was perfect, it was a very relaxed environment and felt like a cozy home. The bathrooms are very clean and large. The owner is a sweetheart and gives great advice on all the fun things to do in the area. It's also in a beautiful village just a 20 minute bus ride from interlaken. And better yet, it's... More

Expensive place, extremely noisy, not worth a penny (if it wasn't for the view only a few rooms have the privilege of...anyways). The breakfast we ordered and paid for the night before consisted of three-months-expired (!) butter, 10 days expired yogurt and anything but fresh croissants. We got our money back for the bfast but the morning overall was very... More

After reading some of the 'poor' reviews I'm a bit stunned that you would expect a hostel to provide toiletries, towels and not be noisy! This is our 1 St experience in a hostel and I can honestly say it was an amazing experience! The views are stunning, the hostel is clean, we had a private room for 3 with... More

Lake Lodge itself is relatively simple and what you would expect. The kitchen facilities can get a little hectic around meal time and measures could be taken to deal with the flies. Every room has a balcony with either a view of the mountain or a view of the lake. The lake itself is stunning and there are plenty of... More

We booked this place because we wanted to escape the city rush for a short time. The receptionist was nice and helpful with checking in and also with booking activities for us. The rooms are simple, but clean and practical. They have FREE KAYAKS if you stay there! Loved it! Great idea! Miss this peaceful place, mornings by the lake... More

Simple, clean and basic. Stunning location with breathtaking views. One of our highlights during our visit to Switzerland. A typical hostel setup so don't expect anything lavish! It helped that we had our own transport. They have parking space available. Would recommend this place for its view and simplicity. The owner too was nice!

Absolutely amazing. Lovely staff! Beautiful hostel on the lake. Bunk beds are a little close for comfort when you don't know the person. But definitely meet people quick! Very sociable hostel great common room and outdoor area! Great atmosphere!! Would stay again and again!

The picture on their website makes it look like they are right on the water but the truth is they are on a small street across the road from the water. Very misleading website. On our first night, there was human excrement on the balcony outside our room. The kitchen was filthy and smelled horrible.
