Welcome to the Villa among hostels!

...for Adventure cracks and world travellers
Interlaken - the adventure mecca with the greatest variety of adventure activities in the northern hemisphere. And all of that right in heart of the most beautiful natural surroundings.

... for easy going families
At Backpackers Villa we are the right alternative to more expensive hotels with our family friendly offers. All kind of attractions for both children and adults make the Jungfrau region interesting for all the family - whatever the weather.

... for Paragliders
Interlaken, in the heart of the Bernese Oberland, is one of the best and most famous flying regions in the world. Kari Eisenhut and his paragliding-centre "Chill Out", which is located in our building, and the Hohematte as a landing field right in front of our hostel, make us your ideal base for paragliding of all levels.
