    Great place. You won't regret. I have not been there during summer so not sure how hot the room gets. Besides that everything is just perfect. Don't forget eye mask and ear plugs and you will be good in any room.

    This is the best hostel I have stayed at. Very clean, great location in the Bern Old Town, plenty of attractions nearby and comfortable sleeping arrangements. Staff is very kind, and Manuel in particular was extremely gracious in helping resolve a booking issue. All in all, I highly recommend!

    Overall nice stay! Staff was helpful checking in and out. Not much atmosphere but could be due to covid. Facilities were clean and they offered a discounted rate for parking at Rathaus!

    Reception is closed “because of covid” but we have stayed in many hostels in the past few weeks that had no such excuse. They don’t give you a towel, you have to make your own bed and unmake it afterwards, taking it to the laundry bag yourself. It felt like camping. It is very dirty. The showers had brown rings of dirt inside and out, and were very old and rusted shower heads. The kitchen has odd smells everywhere and the floors are dirty in common areas. The only good thing is the elevator.
