The hostel has a great location and is very organized. The staff is very helpfull. Very good for a Hostel.
To go to the center of Bern you have to "climb" and the free wi-fi doesn't work in the rooms, just in the common area.
It is 20-min walk to the main Bern train station. The staff were really nice. We were invited for a little gathering and celebration for new years eve there. The breakfast buffet was good too.
The room was too cramped and the wifi is available only in the common area, NOT in the room.
The hostel is in the lower part of the city. To go to the upper part you have to climb the hill or catch a bus that only works until 9 p.m., so is more dificult to go out at night.The wifi is terrible, there inst a elevator in the building, so if you have heavy bags or some fisical problems, avoid the hostel. Despite being clean, the bad smell coming out from the bathrooms contaminated the entire corridor.
i liked the vicinity, beautiful lake and awesome railway bridge.
no lift service, carrying our heavy luggage to first floor just ruined my day.
Polite and easy access
Good location within 10min. from train station and easy to walk to old city. Nice buffe style breakfast. Hostel staffs are all kindful!
Location and staff's friendliness
I slept in Interlaken room. Noisy from the guests above us. I heard every single hard step. I found out in the morning they were group of school children. Internet receiver in Interlaken room is poor. You need to have *ROUTER". No coin/token was included to have warm drinks.
a cheap option to stay in the centre of bern
Clean, new hostel, great breakfast good location, friendly staff, I was very impressed
Hard to meet people.
All of sheet from Hostel, have something that make me allergic. All of my arm, back, leg get rash. Gift from this hostel. i still in hospital with this issue. big thanks!
The overall services were very good. They kept my luggage safely and they explained to me kindly. Breakfast was also good.
Firstly, the location was hard to find so I had to ask Swiss citizen continuously. Cleanliness was good enough but some dirt can be found in WC and shower room. I think the building was quite old.
The cost of this one night stay was more expensive than my entire round trip flight. There were hidden costs and paid way too much money to be sleeping in the same room as 23 other people.
This was a nice friendly place. It worked well for my stay, they were helpful. I recommend it. It was clean. Good breakfast. Good wifi.
The showers were set up a little weird and I couldn't figure out how to keep from getting my stuff a little damp while I showered.
located at a scenery alley, neighboring the cool marzili pool, the Bern YHA has perfect location!
need an additional fee for non-registered users of youth hostel
Meet new friends Free transportation pass
They have a small bathroom.
Open all day Take the tram up to the town for free with hostel provided card Comfortable bed and pillow Clean sheets Table with chairs in room Very good breakfast Very pleasant kitchen staff Lovely reception staff Hardworking housekeepers Parking on site
Internet only accessible in common areas Not enough plugs for everyone's electronics Water temp in shower continually changed No place to hang your clothes next to the shower Very steamy room-forget about keeping your hair straight Lots of people for two showers and toilets, and three sinks Some people did not turn off the lights at night Room gets smelly easily Uncomfortable bumpy bottom sheet
All I can say is one of most cheapest place in Switzerland. but not comfotable as Hotel. If you are alone or with your friends (only men), I recommend you to stay here. Also you can access to old town within 5~10 minute by walk.
Good location, nice staff
I encountered a group of students, that makes the hostel a bit untidy, and the wifi is really poor!!!
friendly staff & helpful
not easy to find the hostel & station downhill, too noisy, less option for breakfast
I liked brecfast
The staff and location
I found the price to be too high for a shared room (20+ people)
