I really liked Bern, but this hostel is pretty terrible (and I've stayed at plenty). The bathrooms have one toilet for each gender on a floor of 20+ people. There are very few to no outlets in the room, and none close to the bed. There is only wifi in the lobby, and it's slow. There are no lockers in the rooms. There are cobwebs in the hallway. The shower head was half broken and sprayed in all directions (including over the wall). If possible, avoid this place.

Front desk staff was helpful for all our needs including being able to give us a converter for the night when ours didn't work. The public transit pass that is given with the room is a plus for getting around the city with no extra expense. They also have maps for free at the front desk which help with getting around the city.

This is not a place for solo backpackers, or for young travelers backpacking looking to stay at fun hostels and meet people. The facility itself wasn't too bad, the rooms were small and in the showers you had to push a button constantly to keep the water going. They didn't have any lounge area besides the dining room where you eat breakfast (which was really nice and free). There was a huge school group which was annoying and older couples here. Not much of a 'youth' hostel.

Its a decent hostel, not great for backpackers or any sense of community. Two separate groups of school kids. Older generations much more present as well as business people. The breakfast was great and beds were OK, not much to say really. The free public transport was a nice touch.

Stayed here one night passing through Bern; overall positive experience and no major issues to report. Hostel in nice location by river and not far from main sites; they also serve a great breakfast.

Friendly & helpful staff, very kind of them offering me & a new friend 2 coffees =) Clean bedsheets, hair dryer, adapter, lockers are available. No shower doors, only curtains but generally didn't cause any problems. Took me a while to find the hostel though, especially in the dark.

Super friendly staff, delicious food (and coffee!!!), very well located in the heart of the city. Remarkable cleanliness. Definitely one of the best hostels in Europe I've known. Totally recommendable!!! :)
