    The check in was nice- very nice ladies on the reception

    I had a single room. It would have been nice, to have a comfortable chair and a table to work on.

    Although the youth hotel is situated in the center of Bern, it is very calm and the view onto the Aare river was so splendid that I chose not to close the stores. The room was design and functional, and the bed comfortable. The staff at reception was welcoming and helpful and the choice and quality for breakfast was excellent. I would definitely book this youth hostel again.

    The equipment is really minimal, so be prepared to bring your own shampoo and to get a hair dryer at reception. Apparently, hotel prices in the Bern center are generally relatively high.

    Great staff, fantastic dinner options- great chefs

    No washing machine Terrible lighting in the room Basically just beds in a room but common areas made up for this No bottom sheet - more a towelling overlay- horrible to lie on

    The hostel is in a beautiful area, right by the Aare River, and the building itself is very stylishly designed. There is a comfortable sitting area in the reception, with a bar serving hot drinks and alcohol until quite late. I can say that the breakfast here was honestly the best I’ve ever had in a hostel setting - so many options, free of charge. The beds had nice clean linen and were very comfortable. I’m a restless sleeper and don’t like to take the top bunk in case I disturb the person below, however these beds were super sturdy and didn’t creak at all. Would definitely stay here again!

    The hostel is located at the bottom of a very steep hill. There is a funicular and an elevator located a few blocks away, however I was not informed of this and was only told by a guest on my final day here. Shower facilities were awkward to navigate, with only one hook to hang your clothes on and no amenities. An individual in our dorm was incredibly noisy at night and early in the morning, and quite unsanitary (discarded feminine hygiene products in the open-top bin, hawking up spit in the hand basin, left the floor wet, etc.) I only mention this because they seem to be staying here long-term and should be warned against such behaviour.

    Breakfast was good and there was various options, the beds were comfortable, the location is very close to the city center, the hotel gives a public transportation ticket which i find very useful. it was really good to have a big locker in the room, i could put my luggage in it and the card system of the locker and the room made me feel safe.

    maybe the bathrooms could be better and cleaner.
