Staff was very friendly and accommodating! The owner even suggested for us to take a boat from Thun to Interlaken. The location is near most of the monuments and the 12 line from the train station. Overall a very nice stay!

The hostel is excellent, nice atmosphere with very good people the staff is very good and professional.


As we just spent one night at the location it is quite difficult to give an opinion about it. But anyway, it seemed to be a really good choice for the money we spent. It was quiet, clean and very centrally located. As far as I can judge, I would recommend this location to everyone.


Unfortunately we were not able to stay a full night here because our family friends wanted us to stay with them. But the hostel is super clean and nice looking, you get big lockers for yourself and they help you with tons of things to do in Bern. Wish we couldve stayed longer. Totally reccomend it!


Comfortable and clean. I would stay here again!


It was clean and the paint wasn't peeling off the walls etc like a lot of other hostels, and the location was good but it was a pretty poor service for the money we paid. €150 for literally just a bed. Kitchen had no oven so limited as to what you can cook, given the price of eating out in Bern this made meals more complicated. Not to mention for €150 there wasn't even breakfast included and they wanted to charge €20 per day for some toast?! Staff not the friendliest either.


Great hostel for budget backpacker, located in the town just next to the clock tower, but there is a bar downstairs so would be a bit noisy at night, but it's ok for me


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 :(

Are you writing about Bern Backpackers Hotel Glocke? Maybe not.. ;)


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!
