Extras like towel, laundry, were unusually costly. No staff from 1200 to 1500.


It would be nice if the Australian busabout users of the hostel respected it more rather than being rowdy in the dorm after drinking to 2 am. Maybe busabout could advise their clients to respect their dropoff points more fairly.


Nice hostel with a great breakfast included! the only issue was the trek to get to the hostel itself. Its a steep walk up to the hostel itself which is annoying unless you can catch the bus, which stops running around 6pm :(


Helpful staff, especially when we needed to stay an extra night last minute. Good kitchen and common room. Bedrooms were nice, and big secure lockers for dorms.


Very nice hostel in an excellent location. Rooms were well equipped with storage lockers and sinks. Bathroom facilities were well maintained and clean. Nice staff and a very nice common area. An excellent hostel all in all!


One of the best hostels I've stayed so far. The location is excellent right in the heart of old town steps away from the clock tower. The place is clean and well-equipped kitchen. I would definitely recommend this hostel.


We stayed in a double bed private with shared bathroom. Not knowing much about Bern, we were really pleasantly surprised by the city itself as well as the hostel. The hostel is less than a 10 minute walk from the train station and was pretty easy to find. There is a large common area with kitchen and washer/drier facilities (10euro). Our room was simple but had all we needed. For such a large hostel is was very quiet at night! Even got free public transport tickets. Perfect for backpackers!

Very secure with a guard on the door at night and key card access. Close to the train station and the town centre with an amazing view over the bridge of the river and the mountains. Short train ride to Interlaken and the Alps which were stunning. Decent room size with all facilities we needed.


We didn't expect much from this hostel given the prices in Switzerland but we were pleasantly surprised by the facilities, cleanliness, and overall atmosphere of the hostel. They also had a lot of great information in the lobby for travellers on a budget which we took full advantage of.


Some of the staff was awful. The young girl was the only nice staff member. But some of the rest of the staff was so rude. The facility was great though. Location was great. Great place to have as a base while you make different day trips


Good hostel for a couple nights in Bern. Would definitely recommend!


We found it a bit pricy but thats just the country. Great place to stay.


Nice hostel, very clean and tidy. Right in the centre of the city. Very convenient. Nice common room. Definitely recommended


The bar on the ground floor played music late into the night, but the hostel provided earplugs

the hostel is really nice, with the price is a bit high, however it's worth the money. Definitely recommend this hostel.


Value for money is a though category for Switzerland... everything in Switzerland is twice as expensive as anywhere else. This said, this hostel was 4 times as expensive as other (awesome) hostels we've been to, so I really don't know what to think. Kitchen had very good equipment, laundry only 1 machine. Location could not be better. Good place to buy a Victorinox. Room was very nice, even had a TV... too bad everything in Europe is translated from original language.


Great location, nice place, yeah pretty good!


Dirty shower rooms and rude staff but excellent location
