    You get what you pay for.

    The hostel is everything you need for the cheapest price in Bern. A clean bed for the night, a shower and a decent breakfast in the morning. Don't expect any special treatment or luxury. And I hope you don't get any snorking monster in your room like I did 😂

    Ideal in Winter.

    Next to both the Xmas market and the train station, but for a steep climb that secludes the hostel from the madness up top. However, there’s a rail cart that’ll take you directly to and from the hostel and it’s free with your stay. Very clean, very tidy, and the bar is affordable.

    The staff was friendly and the room had the essentials. I do believe that the main problem was with my roommates but it was not a huge deal breaker. I would prefer a better way to get through the shower and bathroom

    Happy holiday

    We were very pleased with the stay our young ones had at the youth hostel. They stayed in a 2-bunk room with private bathroom. It had a small table with 2 stools, and separate shower and toilet rooms. The handbasin was in a separate space as well. They had a few problems with everything getting wet in the shower room but other than that everything was fine. They said that the breakfast was excellent with lots of healthy choices. They could walk to everything.

    Great stay !

    Very modern hostel! Lockers to store your luggage, plugs to charge your phone near every bed. Located close to the main train station (it’s down a hill, but once you get to the hostel you get a free bus pass and you can take the funicular back up). Breakfast was ok, but not extraordinary. Only thing is that we don’t get a good connection in the rooms (well not in mine), and having 8 people in the same room can make it hard to sleep. I was glad I brought earplugs !
