LOCATION. We arrived really late and the night reception worker woke up to give us our key. After our late arrival we rested easily knowing we were nestled in the Swiss Alps!

Lots of area to hang out, good game room, decent sized kitchen, lots of activities that can be booked at reception, and great wifi all over the property. There's also a hammock area that is great for relaxing.

We booked a dormitory for 10 people. At the reception the 2 employees spoke only English. They separated us into 2 different dormitories on different floors, this did not suit the visually impaired people who accompanied us. No change has

Very disappointed with the welcome and reservation, we gave up without any compensation

Amazing staff and facilities. And the level of cleanliness was very close to a hotel. The fact that it has a popular bar of its own and several choices of entertainment made out stay faboulous even in bad weather!

Balmer's Herberge, despite being a hostel, gave us an experience of a nice wooden cottage. We stayed in the Twin Room which was cosy and nice. The staff at the reception was really friendly and explained all activities in and around Interlaken. They even have a tie-up with Outdoor, making it easy to register for all winter sports. Their breakfast was decent as well. All in all, we would go back there and recommend the place to all budget travellers.

The atmosphere was totally worth it - lot of youth crowd, the underground night club, all the chatting at nights - this is what you call a youth hostel.

Balmers has been my favorite hostel I have ever stayed at--mainly due to the social atmosphere and friendly, helpful staff. Balmers has a very social atmosphere. It has an outdoor grill that is great and affordable for dinner, and it also has a lively bar with good drink specials. So a lot of travelers hang out at the grill and bar at night allowing an opportunity to mingle with fellow guests. Balmers also hosts parties for America's Independence Day, Canada Day, etc. which draw big crowds. The staff was exceptional. They helped us plan our outdoor activities and gave us tips on other things to do in the area. They are very informative! The rooms and bathrooms were clean. They were nothing special--just typical hostel accomodations. The property has a laundry room, free WiFi, a kitchen, and a TV room. I felt very safe at this hostel. There was 24 hour reception, and a night security guard.
