    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    This place is well worth it! Location is great! The place has awesome amenities especially as a 'niche' hostel. And since it's a niche hostel, you're more than likely to be surrounded by like minded travellers. The only thing I wish could have been better was the kitchen facilities - only had a microwave - would be nice to a cook top to prepare meals (especially since Switzerland is nasty expensive haha!) Would recommend 10/10!!!! Also the staff are extremely friendly!!!

    Lovely short stay at the Balmer's

    When it rains, there will be more insects in the tent but that's perfectly normal. On the whole, the tent is quite clean and there is nothing much to complaint about. However, it does get really warm when the sun is out in the morning so be prepared if you are planning to stay in the tent during summer. Lovely staff, nice environment and friendly guests. One thing to be improved: hot water supply is not consistent for the shower

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Strictly for backpackers

    This is backpackers place with camping facilities. Not a good feel of stay. I am not used to live rough and tough so found my stay terrible. Location is fine with bus connecting to main areas, shopping centre close by. Would not recommend to someone who is not used to with backpacking. It’s also very old site now with facilities deteriorating.

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    This was an adventure to say the least. They give you your sheets when you check in and you put them on yourself. The beds were alright. The planks on my tent were a bit uneven and I tripped a lot, especially once I took out my contacts. They were out of towels the whole time we were there so bring your own. There is no place to go to the bathroom where you won't be heard by 5+ people. Most of the staff knowledge consisted of where to party nearby. And I was expecting loud but we had fights at 2:30 in the morning that nobody was around to break up. Nobody is really at all conscientious about anyone besides themselves. I did like that there was a microwave to cook food and that we were able to borrow silverware. Honestly if I wasn't pregnant and could have partied a little bit and used some of the toys "(trampolines, pool, volleyball, etc) it would have been better but I was there to see Switzerland and not party at my hotel all night and sleep my day away.
