Situated in the centre of Bern this hostel was perfect location wise. The rooms were clean and the common area was really nice, quite an expensive hostel but Bern was an expensive place. Perfect for large groups of people and it was easy to make friends.

This is a very well kept hostel. We stayed here for 3 nights. The first night we had a private room. It was amazing. Had a view over the rooftops and very comfortable bed and a TV! The next two nights we were in a dorm and it was great as well. Comfortable and clean with secure lockers. The common... More

The rooms and facilities were clean and there was no problem on getting a free shower or toilet. The staff was really friendly and helped out to plan the night. The rooms are equipped with rather big lockers for each bed. You don't even need to bring a lock. Location is great if you are there to visit the old... More

Location is good, the place is very well kept...room and shared facilities were clean... however, they usually have only one person at reception while guests keep on rolling in...they were constantly unavailable when we needed them (especially when we needed to retrieve our luggage)...also, reception is not available from noon to 3pm so if you leave your luggage with them...

We stayed here for 3 nights- the rooms were very clean and fairly comfortable...minus the bunk beds, but thats to be expected when backpacking. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating and their common room was nice as well. It is easy to get to- just a 7 minute walk from the train station. The problem is that there... More

I am not the kind of girl that typically stays at hostels (usually prefer posh hotels) but prices are high in Bern and I didn't have much time organize the trip. The staff were incredibly kind and accommodating. My flight was delayed and I came in quite late - staff arranged to have my key at a bar nearby for... More

The rooms are comfortable, clean and the communal areas are cosy with plenty of table's and chairs and a sofa for tv watching. Now, the other points. The bar and clubs can be heard from the forth floor till late, fair enough. Breakfast not included in the price (20 sfr extra). And the rooms are above average even for switzerland.... More

We stayed at the Hotel Glocke for a few nights during our trip to Bern, and on the whole, it was a nice Hostel. Like most things in Bern (and indeed Switzerland) the hostel is very pricey. That said, compared with some of the hostels we have stayed in around Europe, you do at least get a good hostel for... More
