No kitchen, just a microwave and a fridge. Their lunch seemed expensive when i booked, so i chose not to. But everything is expensive in switzerland, and i wish i had their food, it seemed really good. It doesn't have a young atmosphere, i don't know why is it called youth hostel. On the contrary, there were lots of old people. It is by the river, and a long climb to get to the city, but once you do, u r at the very center. Like 5min walking. Really helpful staff.
Big hostel with good security but no lockers. Good location in city center and friendly staff.
Good clean hostel, good position in quiet area. Nice breakfast provided. Difficult to meet other travelers, but overal a good hostel..
Great hostel and nice staff. The wifi doesn't work in the rooms, so they need to put wifi repeaters, and I believe that the internet bandwidth is not good for the number of people using it, they need to upgrade. But the location is good and the facilities too.
Not a social hostel, but they provide a good breakfast and the staff was super helpful. The hostel is located right under the parliament building and its a steep trek uphill in either direction to get to the sights (seriously got my exercise here)! Wifi is only available in the common area, but it's a strong connection. Overall, this hostel was a great place to stay but I didn't meet anyone.
Thus was a nice hostel with an AMAZING breakfast and a friendly staff! Dominik was da best!
완전 비추입니다... 역에서 가까운줄로 일앗지만 케이블카도 안되서 무거운짐을 들고 겨우 내려가고 중심지에서 너무 내려간다고 해야할지; 설명은 힘든데 가는길도 힘들고 다시 역으로 가는길도 힘들어요;
There is a nightly fee if you are not a member of this hostel association.
Filled with families and school children on trips so not great for solo backpackers. Didnt speak to anyone here in the 2 days I stopped. Showers were few and far between so expect ques. Staff are helpful and provide a good map of the city to help you walk round in the shortest time and see the most stuff. Doesnt have a kitchen, which in Switzerland would be useful as its very expensive. Does provide food but the cost is about £12 per meal, again not great for solo backpackers on a budget.
Lovely location, walk past the hedge and the river's just there. Just enough outside of the cbd to be out of the noise.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great. Close to main train station, although it is a bit of a hike down (but more so up) the steep hill and stairs as the furnicular had been removed when I stayed here. Wifi was great in the common areas and even worked ok in the dorms. I would definitely stay here again if in Bern
Great comfy and sturdy bed. Breakfast (included) was amazing! Good location. Would definitely stay again!
Pretty good as far as chain hostels go. Impersonal, but good for a comfortable sleep and decent shower.
Good location, and it was fun to get the cable car there from the station. The directions from the train station are very clear and made it very easy to find. The only option I had was a 20 bed mixed dorm, which is sharing with more people than I would usually prefer, so it would be great if there were more room options. The dorm was noisy, but then this is to be expected with that many people. The facilities were really good, although there are only curtains on the showers and not doors
For a 20 person dorm it wasn't bad at all. I was worried about sleeping at night but it really wasn't bad. There were a few things that annoyed me though. First we were welcomed by a bullshit money grab fee for not being a member of some obscure club that you apparently need to be part of. So that was somewhere between 5 and 10 francs I don't remember. Also there were almost no outlets in the common area, and there is no kitchen which is strange for a large hostel. Free breakfast was good.
