Welcome to our hostel

This brand spanking new hostel has a location to die for, a restaurant serving first class food and facilities that are second to none for all types of groups.

With an activity programme on offer which includes Alpine Trekking; Beginners Snowboarding; Private ski lessons or a ride in a helicopter over the glaciers, this really is a hostel for the active! Book up your programme in advance or decide when you get there. The staff at the hostel will be pleased to help.

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.

The small town of Interlaken is easily accessible from the hostel and there are a number of bars and restaurants here and souvenir shops in case you need a little retail therapy. Or why not rent a bike from reception so that you can travel a little further afield?

If you are visiting Interlaken in the summer, then try a dip in the lakes of Brienz and Thun. Or if you want a little more adrenalin, there’s the chance to try out some white water rafting or bungee jumping too. Walkers are well catered for with pleasant rambles along the River Aare, or if you are after something a little more strenuous then there is a mountain route through Harder Mountain, which starts just five minutes away from the hostel.

With free WiFi throughout the hostel and a breakfast included as part of the price this really does offer groups great value accommodation in an exclusive location. Why not make an enquiry now?
