    This hostel is definitely worth a visit. Everything - especially the price (Bern is very expensive, even for Switzerland) - was great! + Great and helpful staff + Location is very, very good and easy to find + Bar on the ground floor + One of the cleanest hostels I’ve ever seen on my worldwide travels in my life, maybe the cleanest Just a couple of hints for improvement: - Unfortunately no “pub crawl” or similar event during my one-night visit - The showers could have soap dispensers

    Had a private room which was basically a hotel. Can’t complain, pretty expensive but that was reflected by the room.

    My husband and I had a really great experience staying at this hostel. The building and rooms were very clean and the staff was extremely friendly. They were very helpful and answered all of our questions about the city. The location was right in the center of the city, which made things so convenient for us. I would definitely stay in this hostel again!

    The location was really perfect, right near the center of town. The reception was very welcoming, and I definitely felt safe tucked away in this building. The view from the windows was also really lovely, great for people watching. There was also a large locker with each bed that I could fit my whole backpack in along with my other belongings and lock it while I was out during the day. Overall it was a great, comfortable stay, especially for the price.

    Overall a good hostel. I stayed in 6 bed room which was a good size and we had a couple of free beds anyway. Switzerland is really expensive if you’re on a budget. It was also a little quiet/lacking in atmosphere when I was in the hostel so kinda gets boring if you’re a solo traveller. Perhaps they could organise more social events internally.
