Great location, good-value restaurant, but quite noisy at night!
Happy Lodge Inn is part of a busy bar/restaurant. The hostel is upstairs and gets a lot of noise from the bar until it closes at 1a.m. You check in at the bar, and have to walk through it to get to the rooms upstairs. However, the manager is very obliging, speaks fluent english, and the bar has a great friendly atmosphere. The food is very good value for money in comparison to the rest of Interlaken. I stayed in a private twin room, which was small but included a sink, fresh towels every day, and a wardrobe. In spite of the noisy nights I really enjoyed it here, and the hostel is in a fantastic central location.
