    Great Place, staff very friendly and helpful. Less than a km from the main train station, every guest I encountered was friendly and welcoming. Each room has a lockable cupboard for each person so your things are locked inside your own room which is nice. Bathrooms and common areas kept very clean.

    I was very impressed with the Hostel as soon as I had arrived. All staff were very friendly and helpful. I arrived 3 hours earlier than check in but it was no problem to leave my bags and use the facilities available. Huge dining area, space to cook and labels to put on your food in the fridge. Bedroom was big, and bed comfortable. The bathroom and toilet facilities were very clean also. Fantastic location where you can walk everywhere. Thanks for the free tram/bus pass for the two days too 👍.

    Very clean and easy walk from train station. Directions given by the hostel very good. Great common area with laundry , kitchen, lounge, book exchange and tv area. Good facilities. Bar downstairs quiet. Our room was very warm but they provided a fan on request which was great. Only negative was the bunk beds- this one was not that easy to get up to the top.

    I liked this hostel, and could stay here again. Nice, big lockers, clean bathrooms and showers, comfortable beds, perfect location. I wish they had a bar, though, that it had more of a solo traveller vibe. Not because I like to party, but because I think it's exhausting to stay in a hostel where multiple people bring their whole family, and let their 3-5 year olds run around crying, yelling, playing in the common area, night and day.

    Very good for Bakpackers. Fully booked on my stay date (13 July 2019) The kitchen was clean and had basic ameneties. The bathroom has been refurbished, so looks good. But, the owner may keep soap/shampoo for bathing. I forgot my soap and had to manage without it.

    The hostel itself was good. Great place to stay. The staff were ok.. But lacked the conviviality that a lot of European lack. The website did not pass on the message that there were 4 people in the party i.e including my two young children. Therefore we had to have a more expensive room to accommodate. I had sent messages through before hand but they had not been passed on. Out of the 18 places I have stayed at during this excursion hostel world were the only ones to mess up.

    Very clean and comfortable hostel. Nice common room for spending time in and communal kitchen. Great location right in the heart of bern old town. Only downside was our room was really hot but we were staying during a heatwave.

    We weren’t very impressed with the overall hostel. It was very basic, but extremely pricey for what it was. There was one male bathroom and one female bathroom all being shared by two floors. The laundry was CHF 10 for wash and dry with no detergent to use. Honestly, if they changed a few iffy things, I would have been fine with paying the price to stay here.
