Location of Backpackers Villa Sonnenhof

Interlaken is a great Alpine Backpacker spot providing you with more options of fun activities and adrenaline sports than any other town in the Northern hemisphere. Choose from adventure sports such Canyoning or Rafting, take to the air with Paragliding or Hanggliding and if you can’t decide if earth or sky is the best place to be, you might want to give Bungy a try – dangling between heaven and earth you can make up your mind, which you prefer.

Enjoy the amazing mountains: take a train up to Jungfraujoch and experience everlasting glacier ice or enjoy an amazing cable car ride up to Schilthorn. There you see about 40 different Alpine tops. It’s quite unique.

Backpackers Villa acts as your perfect base for this stunning area. They can help to make the most of your time in Interlaken and also book your adventure activities if you so wish.

Solo travellers recommend this hostel as being very safe. Everyone has their own private key for the room and main entrance, plus their own personal locker in the room, which is big enough to store a whole backpack or medium size trolley case.

Backpackers Villa Sonnenhof isn’t a party hostel. There is another hostel with a fun club just down the road. The area is safe so once you return, Backpackers Villa is a good place to get some sleep away from the party atmosphere.

 Why is it solo-female friendly?

When travelling solo as a female, you might want to get talking to other travellers but still get a female only room to sleep in and feel relaxed.

There is a large public area with very good wifi, big 24hour kitchen, a large garden to relax in the summer and lots of space to chill.
