    This hostel was so conveniently located! The staff were great, letting us check in early and leave our stuff in the back room after we checked out so we could explore the city. the bathrooms were so clean and the kitchen and common areas were great! They provided a bus pass as well which made getting around Bern very easy. Would definitely recommend!

    The staff was friendly and helpful in providing instructions to the place I was keen to visit, highlighting road construction, which was helpful. Kitchen, toilets were kept clean so it was a pleasant stay.

    A great hostel in a perfect location. Not far to the central train station and in the centre of Bern. Even though public transport is so good here everything is within walking distance. The rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable. I stayed for 3 nights and the only issue I had was the wifi was down for a whole day.

    Very Good

    The hostel was extremely clean, with comfortable beds, good showers and a well equipped kitchen. The common area was nice but when we went there were very few guests, so it may not be the best hostel if your looking to meet people but might have been due to time of year. Reception hours were quite strange but overall our stay was okay.

    Location is great and the rooms are nice enough, but the bathroom facilities are limited and smell very strongly of cigarettes. No breakfast included which is unusual for hostels in Switzerland. The kitchen and common area facilities were nice and clean but there was next to no atmosphere. The staff hours are so limited that you have to check yourself in (which is fine) and you can’t store your luggage there (which is less fine). I wouldn’t stay here again.
