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.

    I have stayed in many hostels around Europe and I am happy to say that this was one of the best. Shared rooms had separate areas for lockers (lock uses room key), bathrooms and showers were private and clean, breakfast was great (and included for free), they provided a free bus pass for the whole stay, the hostel is walkable (about 15 minutes downhill from the train station), the hostel is right next to the beautiful Aare river, the staff spoke French, German, Italian, English, and I’m sure more

    Breakfast was amazing: fresh and delicious food. One of the best I have seen and I have stayed in manyyyyy hostels! Really clean room and comfy beds. I was able to sleep well. I really enjoyed the location. It is a 15 min walk from the train station, in a quiet area near the beautiful turquoise Aare river. This is a good choice id you want a good night of sleep in a quiet peaceful area. Not a party hostel (and it's fine like that).

    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!

    The front desk was very helpful giving us advice on where to go. Breakfast was included and was really good. It is a bit pricey but everywhere is in Switzerland. The main negative was that it was very hot during the night.

    Great location, there's visitor card for taking a kind of transportation getting down or up hill for free to reach city center, all about 10-15 mins walk Nice breakfast, various options There is not enough places or hooks for placing our clothes or stuff in the showers which is really unconvenient. And the bathrooms and showers aren't very clean... Bur the rooms are pretty good.

    Rooms are clean and there are nice large lockers in the rooms which you don’t need a padlock for. There is only one sink in the room for 8 people and there are 10 rooms on each floor to share 3 showers and 3 toilets so the area quickly becomes grotty again. The hostel is in a good location and the staff are very helpful. It would have been nice to have a place to cook since the price of food eating out in Switzerland is very high and the hostel food is also expensive. No atmosphere to speak of

    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
