What guests say about us:

Chong*, Taiwan, 17 September 2015, www.hostelworld.com: The best hostel I've ever stayed!! Free regional bus and train during my stay, just need to show the room card. Hostel provide limited token to every guest, allow you enjoy hot drinks and laundry service, basically they are free unless you run out of your token. Rafael (hope I spell correctly), the guy at reception when I was checking in, is very nice. Highly recommend this hostel!!

Tracy*, US, 11 Sept 2015, www.hostelworld.com: Awesome staff - incredibly helpful and friendly. Location and facilities are great.

Supachai*, India, 27 Mar 2015, www.villa.ch: This is to express our satisfaction during our 3-night stay at Backpackers Villa Sonnenhof in Mar. 2015.
Everything is perfect for us .. friendliness of staff, check-in / check-out experience / room / kitchen / laundry.
We'll certainly recommend Backpackers Villla Sonnenhof to our friends/relatives, and our next visit.

Simon*, Switzerland, 16 Jan 2015, Villa.ch : Thank you. We were very happy and had a great "New year's Weekend" with you in Interlaken! We were particularly happy about your generosity with free entry to ICE MAGIC!

Angela* from China, 10 Jan 2014, hostelworld.com: This hostel is the best one I've ever experienced. It is within ten minutes' walk from Interlaken Ost, but you will never miss it. Because there are signs along the street, outstanding and easy to understand. The staff is very nice and helpful and I got really useful advice from them about how to travel around in Switzerland. The hostel is always kept clean, everywhere, which is quite satisfying. And I borrowed one adapter from the reception desk. The hostel is really worth every penny.

Jessica*, 13 July 2013, Facebook.com/backpackersvilla:
I was staying at the hostel with my family. We had a wonderful stay. Every base was covered which was impressive. It would have been quite difficult to have cooked at night as there was a real scrum to use the kitchen facilities. Obviously if you have been there for a few nights, you can figure out the system. We were very happy to eat our cold food in the garden at night. My young girls had lots of fun chatting with the other guests and my son loved being able to kick his football around in the garden.
