Been here in Feb '14 for 3 nights. It's the cheapest room that we can find close to Bern Banhoff, it's only 15 minutes walk, but if you don't like to walk try to get a tram to Zytglogge (only 2 stops). We booked by internet with credit card guarantee and payment was upon check in. Our room was basic... More

Easy walk from train station. Located in the centre of Bern. Restricted reception hours so watch what time you arrive. They'll happily store luggage if you arrive during reception hours but before check in. Wifi only in lounge/kitchen downstairs. Not in rooms. Spacious dorms. Clean toilet/shower in the hall. Lockers big enough for your pack in the room. Overall it... More

We had a nice 2-night stay here. The 4-person room was given to us for a discount since they didn't have a 2-bed room and it was off-season (November). Bern is pricey compared to the rest of Europe but I feel we got the value for our money. The front desk staff was very nice and helpful, spoke very good... More

This hostel was good for the price. I had a private room with a shared bathroom which did get quite wet when a few people had used it. The room had a nice rooftop view and useful to have a sink in it. Nice kitchen in the hostel and large sitting area. Noise carried quite a lot and with a... More

The hotel is conveniently located downtown, near the train station and most attractions. You could pretty much walk everywhere, if you would like, which is always a plus for me. Room and bathroom are very simple (really basic), but clean as one would expect. You will receive bed linens/sheets, but no towels, and will have to climb a few steps... More

This hotel is unlike the rest of the hotels I have went in Europe. The room, toilets (even though it is shared) and kitchen are very clean. The twin bedrooms are quite comfy though the beds are a bit small. Most importantly, the location is excellent! 10 mins walk from train banhoff and 2 mins walk from the Bern famous... More

Stayed here with my partner, we had a private double room. Have got to say this is the best hostel we have ever stayed in. The room was clean and appropriate. The facilities were very clean, staff would clean every morning. Location is smack bang in the middle of the city with very convenient transport, hostel even provides you with... More

This hostel offers wonderful service to customers. The kitchen is very organized and clean as compared to many other hostels. The toilets are well kept. The only suggestion I have is that it would be great if wi if is made available in the rooms/dorms too other than the living/dining hall. Thank you.

Stayed here for 2 nights, great location and facilities and helpful staff. Big common area and kitchen and your own light and powerpoints next to your bed. Also unlimited free tea. Only thing is lack of ventilation when the window is closed but would stay here again!

As a solo female traveler this was in a safe, central location about 10/15 minutes walk from the train station. I stayed in a private room, everything was clean and the room had a comfortable double bed with sink, mirror, table, chair and wardrobe. The shower and toilet rooms were pretty close and always clean as well. The common room... More
