“Friendly staff and good location”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

The bunk I stayed in had just 50% occupancy. Each bed was equipped with a reading light and power socket. Large lockers were assigned to each bed for the storage of luggage. The lounge was big, clean and comfortable to sit in. Staff were extremely friendly in giving directions. The toilet was clean. It was located very near the clock tower in the centre of old town, and as such most of the attractions were within walking distance.

We stayed there in a double ensuite room but we were looking for the hostel atmosphere and you get it whenever you go to the common kitchen area.

Room was actually large for what we expected, bathroom was good enough.

Wonderful location -- right in the middle of the old town and within a walking distance (1 km) from the train station. Quiet street -- and I really didn't mind about the bell.

It's expensive but -- guess what! -- still probably one of the cheapest options around.

We stayed in a 6 bed dorm, however two beds were empty (which was nice!) - shared bathroom on the floor.

This hostel had a fully equipped kitchen that was fantastic, with EVERYTHING you need. There was also a nice common area, and a board with a lot of information about local places to eat and visit.

Small elevator in case you have big bags!

As shops in Bern close very early, the hostel offers a small variety of foods available for purchase at reception, plus vending machines, however it was expensive. It is much cheaper to go to the supermarket, but still, it was convenient!

Lockers were available but not big enough for a large full backpack, probably medium sized.

The only negative was that our room's window opened directly onto a fire escape/balcony. There was no air-conditioning, so we needed to open the window, but anyone from the street could have climbed right into our room.

It doesn't seem cheap but in Swiss prices it was fairly reasonable!

The location is great, with restaurants on the same street and about 10min to the train station.

Room Tip: Try to be as far away from the Church bells/clock as possible!

Excellent staff! This hostel also has the most information posted out of anywhere to help you get to know the city you are staying in, as well as things to do in and around. Great security. Great facilities, best equipped kitchen I have ever used in a hostel, maybe even better than my own home... Amazing hostel. Only downside, could invest in air conditioning for the summer as it was too hot to fall asleep, and there was noise coming from the street.

Super easy to find. Stayed in 'penthouse', so very spacious & oh so pretty! Well equipped kitchen, spacious common area. Only negative is the chimes from the clock tower! Every hour! so imaging at 12 midnite & all thruout the wee morning! But noise from the streets & no air-con seems to be the norm at the other inns & hostels that I stayed in other parts of switzerland too.
