It's right behing Bundeshaus and next to the river, you can easily go to the city center or enjoy a beautiful view from the river. The rooms and the bathrooms are very clean, the breakfast had a few good options but was still very good.

I stayed at this hostel because there was a convention in town and all the other hotels were full. The room was simple but clean. A very small bed and a little uncomfortable. It is located in the lower town, near the river, but fairly close to downtown. I had never stayed in hostel before, but from what I've heard... More

The hostel was relatively well-located, easy to navigate from the central train station (hauptbahnof). Room was rather cramped (5 in the family in a room) but still acceptable, but the cold shower was just bad. Apart from having to keep pushing a button to keep the water flowing, the water was barely warm and turned freezing cold very quickly, which... More

This hostel was pretty good but it was the most expensive hostel I stayed at in 2 weeks in Switzerland. The breakfast was good and they have nice expresso and tea! The room I stayed in had 3 bunk beds and the bathroom was down the hall. The blow dryer was great but it was so annoying to have to... More

The hostel was in a great location right by the river Aare, it was clean and the breakfast had a great choice of different types of food. But the reception staff were not very helpful, when a fellow traveller asked where he could eat he was told to walk back into town. He wasn't told about the restaurant that was... More

Good location close to the main area. Buffet breakfast was included and there was a good selection. Lockers in the room and baggage storage available if you need it. Free wifi. There was no kitchen, just a microwave and kettle and a large sitting area. The showers were really annoying as they operated by pushing a button that kept turning... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Bern Youth Hostel. While it certainly was a no-frills visit, it had everything we needed. It was close to the center/tourist sites, the staff was friendly and helpful, there was a good WiFi connection in the common areas, it was not too expensive, and it was reasonably clean. My friend and I had our... More

I stayed there a long time ago, July '09 to be correct, and it was a simple night stop on a trip through Bern. The hostel was fine and had everything you needed in a hostel. I can't remember the price but I think it was decent. I stayed with a group of friends and there were some others from... More
