There is a shared lounge and fully equipped kitchen for guests to use. The shared bathrooms are accessible via a covered corridor. Firewood is provided for cooking over camp fires by the river. Some of the leisure facilities on site include canoe rental and bicycle hire. Guests can also enjoy hiking and horse riding in the surrounding countryside, kayaking, paragliding and cycling.
The river/lake view of the open area
The kitchen is fully-equipped and you can make your own meal anytime. Besides the location is the other advantage of the hostel, just 15 minutes away from the Interlaken Ost train station.
It is hard to find the hostel for the first-timer.
Calm and good location
There is no road to reach the hotel... and feel somewhat lonely during night times... no one from hotel staff was available after 6 pm
Well I was not too satisfied with River Lodge. I am not sure if it was mention in the web site that it has common WC which I never prefer. We found the room not ready and not clean when arrived. This is a hotel ideally for camping and for youths who can share anything and everything. If I compare the price well it cahrged me 96 Frank and without any facilities. Even the common toilets were not clean. Only good part is the location as its river side.
Nothing is good in this hotel execpt the location
Location and price is good. Kitchen, lodge, shower, toilet are all very clean. Late check-in was arranged properly.
The only problem is we was not told that we have to reserve for blanket (at least it was not mentioned on booking.com page). There was no staff around when we arrived late in the evening so we can't get hold of any blancket. The radiator helped.
It very close to train station but a little difficult to be there with my luggage.
