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

    I loved my stay at Bern! I’m not entirely sure if I’d recommend it as a solo traveller but I was meeting friends and it was just what I needed. Facilities were super clean, lockers were huge, free breakfast every morning was great. The hostel is centrally located so it only really took about 8min to walk to old town. Not to mention it’s directly across from the river where you can walk up further and float all the way back down to the public baths (definitely a highlight).

    Great location! The hostel is right by the river and the park, and it is within walking distance of just about everything in Bern. The hostel staff were also very friendly.

    The hostel was great for what I need it for. A comfy bed, a hot shower and breakfast. It definitely wasn't very social for young travellers and had lots of families but had a great location with a lovely breakfast. The room was a little hot though!

    Reasonable price for Switzerland. Included breakfast was actually really good just needs a bit of reorganizing. Not the most social place (there are families) but it wasn’t too hard to make friends in your room either. Overall enjoyed my stay and found the location pretty convenient for what I wanted to do.

    The Bern Youth Hostel is a great place to stay when visiting Bern. It's in a great location - near train station, inner city, and swimming park on the Aare. Staff were friendly. The sleeping room and communal areas were clean. Breakfast was traditional European fare with good selection, but they need to improve the layout. There were some minor inefficiencies. Bowls go before cereal. Bread goes before jam/butter. Overall, this was a wonderful place for our family while visiting Bern.

    Walking distance from the train station, they give you a code for free transportation around bern and that includes the funicular down to the hostel. Big rooms, clean bathroom and shower. Nice breakfast included! And right in front of the river.

    Super helpful staff. Even prepared breakfast for us when we had an early train. Located right next to the river but a short walk up the hill to the city centre.

    Decent hostel, large lockers in your room where you can easily store your stuff. Location was great as it was right beside the river that everyone was swimming in as it was so hot out (August).
