Interlaken - and Switzerland in general - is a very expensive place. So it helps that there is cheap accomodation around for backpackers like yours truly. Villa Sonnenhof makes it clear that it is not a party hostel like that noisy brigade down the road. Indeed, order is priority here - I remember getting a note from the staff to...

As far as hostels go, this is a great choice. The prices are cheaper then a hotel, and the amenities are good, if different than a normal hotel. Amenities at Backpacker's Villa include two coffee/latte/cocoa/laundry/internet (with printing) tokens per person per day; a small breakfast (bread, jam, butter, yogurt, granola); two kitchens with pots, pans, plates, utensils, etc; several eating...

It was a great stay! Thank you Nathalie and all the staff! You were helpful, courteous and always smiling and appeared efficient in all aspects! Could you please add a fruit for breakfast? Also, could you introduce a process for people to book cooking and washing machine slots in advance? We hope to come back!!

Good centrally located hostel in Interlaken. You can easily walk to both train stations and anywhere in Interlaken without breaking a sweat. I had never stayed in a hostel before (and I'm 29) so I was a little nervous about it, but our private room was just fine. Clean sheets and very decent bathroom. The staff is very very helpful...

Good centrally located Bed and breakfast property. Little expensive for double room but if you are in Switzerland then you have to compromise for price every where. Staff is very generous, helpful and cooperative. I would like to give thanks to following staff for their hospitality. Miss Rebbekka Miss Melanie Miss Nathalie Miss Christine Mr Rafael Mr Daniel

My friend and I began our first ever trip abroad in Interlaken at Backpackers Villa and had a phenomenal time. We had a single room with twins and could not have had a better experience. The location is great. Easy to get to both Ost and West train stations, and also a couple different bus stops depending on where you...

You can have the best view of Harder Kulm from Backpackers Villa. The ladies at the frontdesk are exceptional (calm, quiet, hardworking and patient). All the places are quite nearby and you can walk from Interlaken West to this place (about 10 minutes). We booked a quadruple room as we were 4 friends. The place was very nice. In Switzerland,...
