Could have been better ... the dormitory was okay for cleanliness. unfortunately, there was no hot water in the showers and the water was freezing cold. Also, my room was located just beside the backyard where there was a bar and party going on at night, so couldn't really get to ...

How to get there

Directions to the Funny Farm Backpackers Hostel (Mattenhof Resort).

Get off the train at Interlaken Ost (east).
Across the street is a big supermarket, the Coop, and on the other side is a Raiffeisen bank and a furniture store (Von Allmann).
Walk up this street, there are 2 roundabouts and the street slowly curves left, but stay on it until you get to a small Coop, on your right.
Make a right on this street and at the main road (Hauptstrasse) make a left and we are 20 meters down the road.

Sounds complicated but it's very easy and shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.

Bus Nr 5 from "Interlaken West" train station, go out at "Sonne Matten". It takes about 5 minutes.

Nearest airport: Bern 70 km
