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

Wonderful hostel! The place was clean and safe and right in the center of Bern's old city. The staff was friendly and helpful and the common room had a very fun and welcoming vibe about it. A little pricy, but so is everything in Bern. I would definitely recommend it.


Great location, nice staff and good kitchen to use. The only problem is that you need to lift up your suitcase to the level 1 floor.


Very clean and organised, no complaints whatsoever. Location is perfect, 2 minutes from the the Zytglogge and Bern's old town. The club that runs on the ground floor, Quasimodo, was nice on a Saturday night, although not spectacular. It was a bit noisy but I don't usually mind that and they had free earplugs for those who do. I couldn't find any hostel-organised activities, even though they advertise some done by other people (like the walking tour).


Carry our luggage to reception floor is a heavy task. Reception closed from 12 to 3pm is also an inconvenience.

Hostel was one of the nicest hostels I've stayed in: super clean, had plenty outlets per bed, bedside light, and large free locker. I stayed in a 6-bed dorm and there was a wall dividing it, so it felt like a 4-bed, plus there was a sink in it. There is limited check-in time and no breakfast, but if you read the description you'd know that. Staff weren't overly excited or full of energy like some hostel staff, but they pleasantly answered all my questions. Lacked atmosphere for solo traveler.


Can't beat location and how close it is to all forms of transportation. Great value for your money and I found everything to be super clean. Would definitely stay again!


Great sitting area downstairs and full kitchen access. Good location, right Downtown. There is a bar downstairs that can get a little loud, and the rooms are nothing special but they were fine for our one night stay.


The hostel is very good, good location but doesn't have reception 24h.


great hostel


Common Room is very very nice and has a excellent kitchen but the bed room is not so good as the common room


It's unfortunate that there are limited reception hours, and that WiFi is only in the common room. Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay.
