Standard Swiss YHA: clean, friendly staff (who spoke good English), safe, cheapest accommodation around, decent wifi, free swiss breakfast, lockers that require a 2CHF deposit but are otherwise free, limited staff hours.

About
Description
Brienz lies at the upper end of the Lake of Brienz, surrounded by beautiful alpine scenery, which provides numerous, rewarding excursion destinations. A trip on Brienz's steam-driven Rothornbahn, with its More magnificent views, is an adventure for young and old alike. Alternatively you can take in the same views on a ramble to the Axalp. Brienz is an ideal water-sports area in the summer. And if this is not enough for you, there's always a visit to the tourist museum in Unterseen, near Interlaken or a trip, high above, to the Jungfrau, the Niesen or any of the other beautiful mountains of the region.
