"Balmers..." Balmer's Herberge Tip by CandS

Balmer's Herberge, Interlaken: 264 reviews and 7 photos

by CandS

We stayed at the Balmers Herberg in Interlaken - it was fantastic as we were almost the only ones there...

(I have been told during the peak season it's pretty crappy staying at Balmers...as we were there in mid October it wasn't very busy at all - unless you want to party all night long don't stay there during the peak season)

We paid 34 CHF for a double room without an en-suite but including breakfast...

Unique Qualities: They have a good set up and everyone spoke English (after seven weeks of other languages it was nice to hear some English). The hostel was filled with 99% Aussies, Canadians and Americans but it was okay for a couple of nights. The price was okay and they had free games - fussball, table tennis etc. The lounges are cozy too!!
