Property Description

Bern Youth Hostel is worthy of a capital city. Situated in a listed building and with a view of the Aare loop, the ultra-modern redesign brought a bright extension with seminar rooms and a garden seating area. As before, you are able to plan activities over lunch or under the trees, including a visit to the square in front of the Federal Parliament Building with its 26 water fountains, the bear park, the Paul Klee centre, the Einstein House or the arcades in the historic old town. And don't miss out on the excitement of swimming in the River Aare or biking on the Gurten mountain! View House Rules

    Everything was excellent. great location near the public pool, also a great location to float the Aare. Twin room was super. Hearty breakfast with plenty of food to take for the day. Smooth stay in a quiet area, train station is a short walk up a large hill.

    Literally could not recommend this place enough. Got a wonderful bar recommendation and a great recommendation for the mountain train. Free breakfast was an amazing college student friendly perk, too. Loved it!!

    This is a very nice hostel in the heart of Bern. Literally just below the parliament building. Cleanliness superb! Staff very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast is nice too. Fast Wi-Fi. My only complaint is that there isn’t a kitchen, otherwise this is a reasonably priced hostel for what you get.

    Its great to get a two day transport ticket for free because the hostel is in a zone that you need to walk a stiff but the hostel is nice and clean. Very quiet, cool.

    We stayed in a female economy 6 bed room. It was surprisingly spacious, good size lockers that fit a large suitcase. Beds had personal light and charger. Not much atmosphere and I didn’t realise it was family friendly (lots of kids running around/yelling in public areas - I don’t personally mind that but I imagine some would haha). Shower and toilet were good, included breakfast was great. Good location as well, just by the river and a short walk (up hill!) to town.

    Although very expensive, this hostel was really really good! The room was large, they provide lockable lockers and a great breakfast. Definitely recommend this hostel! However if you want to socialise, maybe not the best place. The guests are mostly older, or have families. Really enjoyed my stay!!

    Youthhostel Bern in Bern, Switzerland, Sept. 2019: the staff were wonderful, and everything was great. However, I got bitten all over on the first night by BEDBUGS! Moved to a new bed in another room that was fine. But a week later I'm still covered in nasty itchy red lumps, and treating with hydrocortisol cream & antihistamines. So it is difficult to rate the hostel highly - bedbugs are a very serious problem.

    We arrived at midnight, and my girlfriend found a bed-bug on her bed, then we refused to stay. Having treated us like liers with uncooperative skepticism, they then half-heartedly offered us another room, but after reading many bad-bug reviews online, we realized this is a hostel-wide problem and we decided to not take the risk because of my allergic sensitivity. NO REFUND IS GIVEN + very rude attitude of the manager/front desk. It was NOT our choice not to stay but a necessity of circumstance
