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.

    Amazing location! Right by the river. Free breakfast, clean rooms. However no common area to be social and almost no intermingling between guests.

    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.

    The Hostel is well situated. Public transport ticket is provided for the length of your stay. The rooms are of a decent size with clean bedsheets, provided with card key lockers. The bathrooms and toilets are clean situated outside of the room. The continental breakfast offered is of good quality, open from 6:30-9:30. We were there during the month of August and most travellers were families with young children. Overall, a nice and clean hostel, pricier as are most things in Switzerland.

    the only thing is that the washroom and showers were across the floor and the showers didn't have courtains so you basically change on wet floor

    Everything about this hostel is great except for the atmosphere. The staff, free breakfast buffet, and location were all fantastic but the atmosphere was awful. I thought since it was called Youth-hostel there would be a younger crowd but 90% of the guests there were in their 30s-40s and many even had kids with them. This may have been unusual for the hostel but that’s just my experience.

    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.

    Buffet breakfast was good and the 8 bedroom I stayed in had lots of space. The shower/ bathroom setup is communal, with only one toilet on each floor allocated to girls and the rest is mixed. Be cautious if you choose to stay here - check your bed linen and mattress before you sleep. My bed had bed bugs and I’ve got over 20 bites on my back now. Told reception and they gave me a full refund and seemed apologetic, but I didn’t see them seal the room and move the other people to different rooms.
