    I had a wonderful time in the city of Bern! The hostel had the best imaginable location and I was fortunate enough to get lovely ‘roommates’! A recommendation to future visitors is to bring a bag that’s able to hold water and bring it into the river - walk south along the river in order to flow back towards the city with the currant.

    I was traveling for a congress and stayed in a private room (with shared bathroom). The price is good for this excellent location (although you will hear the bell from the clocktower ring 4x/hr) and the staff was lovely.

    Perfect location and the staff is really friendly and ready to help. See carefully the times the reception open because is no way to leave you bags before e de check in because no one is there and they have a number just for emergency. If you are looking for souvenirs they have a lot of things and a discount if you are staying there

    Staff were very friendly. There was a big common area where people could socialise (however not many people were keen!) Clean fully kitted kitchen. Free pasta, rice and breakfast cereals. In the centre of bern and I felt very safe as a solo female traveller

    Great location, showers were great! Could be a bit loud at night, no oven in the kitchen but decently equipped! Offered films etc in the common room and free pasta/rice which was a nice touch. Had the ability to be social but appeared to attract an older crowd.

    Great location! Area was safe and next to plenty of cafes and shops. Beds quite narrow, and weirdly was quite an “older” crowd which was a little weird, but on the whole a good experience.

    Everything looked clean however the mattresses, doonas and sheets smelled really bad. Only about a 10 minute walk to the station which is convenient.
