    Location was decent as everything is close to each other in Bern. Atmosphere was great by the time İ stayed as there was a large group of local students but it could be otherwise in different times. Breakfast was perfect. Price was among the best in Switzerland (it is bad though compared to hostels in different countries) I would definitely stay there again. It would be nice to have the lockers inside the room though.

    One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at - not much of a social scene though, so if that's what you're looking for maybe not. Everything else was honestly perfect though.

    Lots of room in the 8 bed mixed dorm. Includes a sink and mirror in each room. Communal showers and washrooms were very clean. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was much more than simple continental, lots of variety and great place to get to know others in the hostel. Many lounge spaces indoor and outdoor to enjoy. Loved it!

    Really great place, has all the facilities you need, beds were the best we have had in our 7 weeks of travelling so far, free breakfast was pretty standard but welcome, staff were brilliant and happy to help with anything, they even put a breakfast package aside for us when we told them we had to leave early in the morning. Only mark the place down on location as it is a little far out but there is a bus stop right out front that goes to the town centre

    What really makes this place stand out is the staff: all of them are just super friendly, helpful people. They’re easily the best staff I’ve seen on my tour of Europe. The rooms, facilities, and common spaces are all immaculate, you can tell they take cleanliness very seriously. While I wouldn’t say it’s a great place to meet other solo travelers, I did meet a few and ended up making some new friends. It’s a bit far away from the city center, but there’s a bus that takes care of that issue.

    Very clean hostel about 30 mins walk from Bern train station and the Old Town. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Included is a public transport ticket which is useful for the buses and trams around the city. The breakfast is very good. Good facilities and security.

    Atmosphere is DEAD here. Seriously, dont plan on meeting people or trying to party because this place makes it difficult. Even in passing in the kitchen and common areas people were not social. I had a week here and almost everyone I met was from my own room. Location was sub-optimal but it was easy enough to catch the bus into town (~5 mins). If you go out late you will need a taxi after 12pm. If you are just after a bed though, I would reccomend. Hostel was super clean and the staff were great
