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

    We had a great experience here! Situated on a super cute and quiet street. The room was super clean and staff were so helpful. And it was a quick walk up a hill or lift ride up to the the main area of Bern.

    They give you a card that gives you access to every form of public transportation in the area. That's just awesome. It's a less than 15 minute walk from the train station, supremely well located, clean, nice staff, and just all around gorgeous. Expensive, but this is Switzerland, it's pretty much directly in the price range you'd typically find there. Definitely recommend.

    They serve generous and delicious breakfast. The facility is newly renovated and probably better than ordinary hotels.

    Great place to stay right off the river, with a nice outdoor seating area. It actually feels more like a hotel, with lots of kids and families. They have free breakfast in the morning, as well as a lunch menu you can buy from. It was a little on the pricy side but overall a lovely atmosphere!

    Upscale hostel, typical for Switzerland youth hostels. Lots of families with children or elders staying for the weekend in the single rooms and workers for longer stays in the dorms. Off season, 0 atmosphere. Staff could be friendlier. Otherwise great facilities, perfect location, best of all was the breakfast, totally worth the money for pricey CH. Also, I would recommend the free walking tour the hostel recommend, very nice and informative, not boring at all.

    Great location near the river and close enough to walk from station and to explore the old town. Lots of families staying also. It's not a typical hostel where you end up chatting to other guests so for me, that made the vibe feel a little sterile, but they offer all the things you need, breakfast included. A big thanks to Pascal on the front desk who always had a lovely smile to share (it makes all the difference) and Urs who was helpful and up for a laugh with this crazy Aussie ;)

    Bad experience - I specifically booked using flexible booking policy which allows for changes to be made to the booking. The week before my stay, I contacted the website to modify my booking from 4 to 3 nights. They told me to contact the Hostel directly, in Bern. So I did, and asked to change my booking, to which they agreed. Once I am in Bern at the hostel, my card is charged for 4 nights, even though I stayed 3, had a flexible policy, and followed the advice given on how to change it. UNFAIR

    I was a solo traveller put in the same room as workmen staying here. Went out on the lash and made nothing but loud noise all night! Not the best stay to be honest! Also full of children/school?

    I enjoyed my 1st night at the Hostel ...however the 2nd night could not have gone worse. My roommate who had been drinking....decided to yell at my girlfriend and I because we were sleeping. This along with the fact I woke up with 20 bed bug bites on my body, caused me to check out early. I was offered another room, but did not feel comfortable sleeping there again. I emailed the staff about the bed bugs, she acted like it was not a big deal and nothing was done. I would never stay here again
