Hostel Interlaken

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Interlaken is a town with international flair. The unique location of the youth hostel next door to Interlaken-Ost Railway Station and at the foot of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau mountains offers boundless pleasure for adventurous guests. A train journey up to Jungfraujoch is one of the highlights of a trip through Switzerland. Jungfraujoch also boasts the highest railway station in Europe – at an altitude of 3,454 metres in a high-alpine wonderland of ice, snow and rock. The extensive ski areas with over 200 kilometres of pistes are also very popular in winter.

Guests at the new youth hostel meet in the spaciously appointed and designed lounge in the entrance lobby. They can sit there comfortably around the open fire, play pool or check their e-mails using the free WiFi. All 2-bed rooms have a shower/WC, as do a large number of the 4-bed rooms. The youth hostel contains a total of 220 beds.

The menu of the in-house restaurant 3a includes classic international dishes such as green Thai curry with chicken fillet, minced meat with pappardelle and sweet and sour apple slices or penne arrabbiata. The dishes are prepared right in front of guests in woks. A seasonal salad is included in the price as a starter with every main course. The complete menu comprises three courses – starter, main course and dessert. For dessert guests can choose between different varieties of ice cream from the in-house ice cream parlour. 3a is open seven days a week from 7 am to midnight.

Location is quite good but the noise of locomotive at night did affect your sleepness. Need to take balance the pros and cons.

The Hostal is very close to the train station. The staff are friendly and helpful. Some minor problems are the international adaptor couldn't be used due to the upward design of the socket, while there is an extra in the sleeping area, only one socket could be used for the plug w/ international adaptor each time. Besides, it's quite hot during my stay, and we have to open the window but it was quite noisy when someone chatting outside. It would be great if electric fan installed.
