Balmers Backpackers Hostel Reviews

Reasonable

Great customer service and loved that there were plenty of toilets and showers. However, rooms are kind of small (which wasnt a major problem since interlaken is too beautiful to stay indoors) and the place does need renovations. For the price for one stay, it was average.

Great time

Couldn't ask for much more. Hot showers, simple breakfast or could order a hot breakfast, club in the basement for partying late night with other locals and fellow hostelites, sold post cards and stamps with a mailbox in the office, and told where to go for all the high adventure type stuff (expensive, but worth it).

THIS PLACE SUCKS

The rooms are small with many bunks crammed into them, bathrooms and showers are in the hallways. To work the shower, you need to hold the button down or else it will turn off on you -- just like the hallways lights, so be prepared to shower in the dark. Bar was okay, but closed the first night we got there. There are many hostels on the same street or nearby so you have MANY other better options ... everything is walking distance in Interlaken so don't sell yourself short by staying here -- find a nicer hostel and just visit their bar if you really want to see what it's like.

Fun and friendly!

I loved this place so much I extended my stay! Easy to meet people, fun bar, and free use of a kitchen (essential for any backpacker in pricey Switzerland). The companies used for the activities were really great and professional. The rooms are old, but clean, and you really don't end up staying in them much since there are always so many more exciting things to do. Definitely had a great time and would stay here again!

So much fun, and a great value!

If you love having a good time, come here! My favorite hostel in Europe. I had an amazing stay at Balmer's and would tell anyone who has a social life and loves the outdoors to come here. The staff is really helpful and friendly, always full of suggestions for you stay. And the extreme sport heaven is unreal! The alps are right there! The bar is a fun time too. I personally thought the local adventure sport guys were really fun, had no problems with them at all! The dorms are fine, linens provided. The bathrooms vary from building to building (there are two or three different areas I think). My side had no problems and was very clean. Definitely the place to stay in Interlaken!

Crap

You are kicked out of your bed at 10:30 a.m. and not allowed back in until 4 p.m. they say for cleaning but i didnt see any cleaning taking place. Our beds at bed bugs so we were forced to share the tiniest single bed you have ever seen. The bar is ok. the guys who run the adventure sports are pricks and run wild in there every night. We were harassed, followed had bottles thrown as us, and security stood by and happily watched it happen as long as we kept our voices down. It was just gross the way we were treated and we met some guys who were also harassed by the same guys.

The Best.

Of all the hostels I've stayed at through the years, this one is my favorite -- hands down. Balmer's has become my benchmark for any new hostel I visit. Balmer's has it all. I would live there if I could.
