This is a lovely hostel overall! It is really expensive when you look at it but you won't find anywhere in Bern cheaper unfortunately. The beds are really comfy and showers are good - pretty powerful actually! The staff were really helpful and the information on the walls can basically plan your stay, don't miss the river!!! Most backpackers we met didn't eat out due to high prices (even a McDonald's meal was over €10) but the kitchen is extremely well equipped so making your own food is easy!
Nice atmosphere in the hostel, the common room and kitchen was open 24hours which was great. Central location and secure, free lockers in each room was great.
Great hostel. Right in the middle of Old Town. Nice and homey. Only complaint is the wifi doesn't work if too many people are using it.
Nothing bad to say, not even a little compliant!
This is probably the best youth hostel of the many we have stayed in in Switzerland. Great central location, clean and comfortable rooms, really nice communal area with well equipped kitchen.
The best thing was they give free tram ticket.
Great location, easy to find. Price is reasonable. Staff is very nice and helpful. Bedrooms and bathrooms are clean and tidy. Fully equipped kitchen
I stayed here one night only. Overall, this was a good hostel. I was very disappointed at the lack of hot water in the early hours of he morning. I'm certain I wasn't the only one. Nevertheless, in addition, the showers should always be thoroughly cleaned..
Clean and quiet facility with reliable wifi and we'll equipped kitchen. Atmosphere while we were there was not very social.

Wicked location with good facilities! Would stay again.
Great location smack in the middle of the action. Nice large common area to unwind in, not much else to say really, overall a good time.
Location of this hostel was really good. There was a pretty good common room with a well equipt kitchen. There was plenty of info all over the hostel suggesting what to do in Bern.
Even though I only stayed here for one night, I had a great time. The location is ideal, the staff helpful and the place is clean. The common room is inviting and you'll probably meet other travellers to go out with at night.
it is near the station, good area with many restaurant. room is clean and tidy, kitchen is perfect.

This hostel is amazing! We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff make you feel very welcome! The kitchen and common room are very accommodating. The wifi service was super and Bern is one of the most relaxing cities to visit. Thank you Bern backers for such a great experience, I hope to return someday soon!

Great location - 10 min walk from train station. Staff are nice and pleasant, but a bit standoffish - not warm and sunny. Facilities are good, kitchen works well, hostel is very clean. Very easy to meet other travelers, as long as you're open. Only complaint is I think it costs too much, but if you're ok with ~38 euros a night then by all means, stay there!
it's a walking distance from bern train station. the room was clean and the bed was comfy. the toilet and shower were clean too. my only complain would be the wifi. you have to be in the common room to get connected. besides that, everything was ok since everything in switzerland is quite expensive
Location was great, it was near enough to the train station (about 10 minutes walk) and to other major attractions. There is supermarket nearby too, so it's convenient for those who want to cook. Kitchen facilities were great. Toilet was clean. Wifi was working well when I was there, but only in the lobby and common area. But the common area was huge, so I didn't mind not having wifi in the room. The price is quite reasonable given that this is Switzerland.
