    excellent food event you have to pay for it.

  • Group of friends

    It is close to the main train staion, but it is difficult to find it. It is better to get the information fro the info room at 1st floor at the train station.

    I dont like the shared toilet and bathroom, it is not convenient for a family.

  • Group of friends

    good location

    in the night, someone else slept in my bed and i had to throw him out. better security should be considered. expensive drinks, i had to do the bed on my own.

  • Couple

    Their facilities are very nice, I prefer the self-service here, and breakfast and dinning hall is comfortable, and its location is prefect!

    there is no fork for eating....

    Large cafeteria-like room and outside dining areas. ping-pong table.

    Old building, small room

  • Group of friends

    Friendly English speaking staff. Quite good breakfast - corns, yogurt, tosts, coffee, juice etc. An opportunity to have a lunch for nice price. You can cook for yourself, there was a microwave oven and a kettle, but only one. The beds were comfortable for tall people. Great location!! 10 minutes from the central railway station, 1 minute from the most beautiful river we've ever seen. Free public swimming pool, fresh air. The price was good for Switzerland. Many young people from all over the world, great experience.

    The hostel is situated by the foot of the hill, so we had to go down with our luggage. Tiny room, low ceiling, no air ventilation, very stuffy. No mirror and cabinet, just a table and two chairs. We were three lucky beggars to live in the room for four people. Wi fi wasn't working, just public pc. No towels (extra pay!) and shower facilities in the bathroom, but there were many bugs and one big cockroach... Ac outlet wasn't fit to our devices, so if you wanted to charge your mobile phone or camera you would pay for an adapter. Old linen. Very noisy yard, there were many people who sat all the night and talked loudly. Unfortunately the level of comfort was lower than the price. We wouldn't recommend this hostel to other tourists and would never stay there again.

    The location is the best of all. The breakfast was good and the staff's are nice and professional.

    The shared bathroom is anoyng.

  • Group of friends

    Good location, as long as you can find the place.If not you can ask people in the neighbourhood. It could be a bit tiring if you climb up from the hostel to parliament,of course you can take cablecar(or tram?), which costs 1.2 chf per ticket.

    No wifi signal in the third floor.breakfast could be better.6euro per person if you are not a member. I paid overall 170+ for a 4 people private suite, which makes it the most expensive accommodation among the hotels n hostels of the same standard or better I've ever stayed.

    Location was excellent

    Most staff were ok, just one that wasn't

    It is really close from the center (about 10 mn walking from the main train station). The staff is really kind and efficient. The hostel is totally clean, and the breakfast (which is included) is awesome !

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Great staff, very friendly and helpful. Clean rooms with a great location for Bern. Breakfast was satisfying and plentiful.

  • Single
    5.8

    Quiet and clean, provide breakfast

    Location not convinent, facility too limited

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    There were a few hidden costs that we were not informed of prior to checking in. There was some "non international youth hostel member" booking fee that was charged to us because we were not members of the international hostels network. We found it to be strange why te website did not inform us about this extra charges.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Very nice location, still easy acsess even after the cablecar closed when you could take the bus all the way. despite beeing "simple" there is all the comfort you need . Did not find a selfserve kitchen but easy enough to use the micro and waterkettle. Good breakfast- (without eggs, fruit and vegetables) but basic with exellent bread and cheese. Suroundings has oportunities for nice walks along the the river to a nearby willage or lovely Botanical Garden (about 30 minutes for a slow walker)

  • Single
    7.4

    Except two tings, rest of very good!

    1. Wifi is not working! Swiss is hard to use internet and very expensive price of using internet. So it is very important. 2.They not show the hostel membership pee in total price! Of course they attached that it can be additional carged but hard to find and someone can't understand.
