Awesome area to visit. I didn't see or do half as much as I wanted to but this would make an excellent home base for the Berner Oberland area. I stayed at the Valley Hostel one night and it was excellent. I'd rate the accommodations very high, (this was my 1st hostel) since I didn't know what to expect I was surprised at how nice facilities were which included clean bath area, industrial kitchen, lounge room, excellent sleeping areas (shared & private)w/d & patio area. Local store 1/2 block away but it closed real early, 6pm? and it was 1-block away from the train station.
