I had the best time at Balmers Hostel! The staff are all really welcoming and the whole hostel is very friendly. They even organised a free trip for us to go canyoning with Outdoor Interlaken which was amazing, especially since Switzerland can be quite expensive. I would definitely recommend and hope to go back soon!

Everything was amazing! Balmers is awesome and the staff is incredible great. The job is as demanding as any other job, but totally fair. Most of the times it didn't even feel like working.
I am grateful to be a part of it and to meet so nice people during my stay :)

While I was in Balmers we were closed for renovations so i think i didn't experience all the awesomeness that this place has to offer. Even though the exchange was more than fair (not hard working, great accomodation, beautiful surroundings and good staff) Interlaken is a magic place and Balmer's is a great place to start to discover it.

Balmers was a really fun time. I stayed there for just about a month and a half volunteering doing odd jobs such as breakfast and cheese fondue and housecleaning and whatnot. The staff are really friendly and will definitely make you feel like you belong there. When you volunteer at balmers you really do feel like a local among locals in Interlaken :) I would say this is one of the most organized volunteering opportunities in worldpackers and I would recommend you volunteer here if you want to have a really unforgettable time .
