Friendly and helpful staff, pleasant common room and good kitchen. Really appreciated the free peppermint tea bags!
Amazing! Great place to stay a few days. Thanks for everything. Staff great!
I loved my stay overall! The only critique I have is that the floor was really dusty (my socks were covered in lint after just a few minutes). Other than that, thank you for a wonderful stay!

Switzlerand is expensive so it was worth the price. It was a nice place to stay. Comfortable and in a nice location. The bar downstairs was kind of loud at night it was frustrating not having wifi in the room. The staff were nice. I would probably stay here again if I had the money to return to Bern.
The location would make this hostel a great place to stay no matter what was inside, but they also had pretty great facilities. The shower rooms were spacious. The beds were adequate. I really liked the common room where they have a great kitchen and play movies nightly. Also the staff were really respectful when they emailed me to tell me I took the room key with me and had to mail it back - I appreciated the friendliness!
Kitchen is fully equipped - you will not lack for anything! Location is perfect. Walking distance to everything. Wifi doesn't work in bedrooms but the common room is very large and welcoming so it's not really a problem. Bedrooms are nice and spacious and there are large lockers to store your luggage.
As expected from Switzerland, accommodation was very expensive. Free lockers in the room, each bed had 3 powerpoints (one used for the light) and a light. You need to have a specifically shaped plug, so our universal travel adapter did not fit with light plugged in, so basically it became as useful as a single powerpoint. Kitchen facilities were good. Showers were okay.
We only spent one night here, but it appeared clean, well-designed and friendly. There is a large common area which would be great for hanging out with friends, I'm not sure how you would go meeting others there though. At least on the night we stayed there, it was basically empty all night! The only problem I found with this hostel was that the reception isn't open 24 hours, which can be a problem if you're arriving late or wanting to store luggage during the day.
One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Super clean, great facilities, nice room. Very expensive but everything in Switzerland is.
Nice cosy and comfortable place. Good ambience and comfortable common area. Wifi works well everywhere. Great location right in heart of old town. Expensive though - but everything Is in Berne
Please, Make separate room for males and females and dont give a room to many people when you have other empty rooms and dont say that there is nno wifi on rooms because there is

Excellent location - right in the middle of old city centre. Kitchen is well eqiuped. It could use a free coffee but either than that no complaints.
The hostel is good however it does not have an oven. Staff were helpful, beds were comfortable, we got to choose movies to watch each night with other guests.
Great place to be! Facilities were good and value for money, especially so in a city like Bern where everything seems so expensive. Can be better if the reception hours are extended throughout the day.
Clean and nice hostel, maybe I was just there at off time but everyone kind if kept to themselves.
Very centrally located with a pleasant common room. The dorm was small but clean. A quiet place to meet other travellers on your own, but not impossible. The owner was super helpful and patient.
Nice hostel with room in fridges and kitchen facilities.
Hostel should provide more information about city activities. It might be overpriced but it is Switzerland.
Besides excellent, nothig else to say. The room was spacious enough with big lockers. The bathrooms always clean and the kitchen, the best part of the Hostel. Definetly I'd stay here again.
