    This trip is my first time in Bern and Switzerland. The staff is open-minded and helpful in many situations. The room that I experienced is cozy with woody bunkbeds and beautiful views. The location is five bus stop from the city has a good advantage for the quiet vibe. (Clean bathroom and functional kitchen for cooking and having dinner) If you don't want to pay like a hundred for a night but also need great service, I would recommend this hostel.

    Staff is extremely helpful and accommodating. The breakfast is pretty decent (your usual cereal, yogurt, cheese, bread and spreads). More of a "hotel" vibe, so don't expect too much out of the atmosphere. A great place for a base to get to other nearby destinations like Interlaken.

    Very helpful staff and great facilities. The guest kitchen is great and there's a "seminar room" which is great for coworking. It's not super social and it's occasionally full with school trips, but overall great. There's not a lot in the immediate vicinity, but you get a travel card for free bus travel, so it's only 10 minutes via bus to the old town and train station, and the bus runs pretty frequently.

    Nice place absolutely clean and tidy, staff absolutely friendly and helpful 100% customer focus. Price is quite high as is still a hostel, little bit far from the city centre, but other than that I 100% recommend it.
