Liked: This hostel was very clean, central location for sight seeing around Bern and nice common room to meet up with other travellers.

Disliked: Some staff members were very unhelpful, and booking activities through reception was a difficult. We were told to do it this way however the service was not good and in the end she gave us the phone to figure it out ourselves. Also it would be good to have reception open earlier and later. Our train returned late and it made getting deposits back from reception difficult, as we were leaving before reception opened the following morning. Another washing machine/dryer would be very welcomed too.

Liked: Very central, clean, secure.

Disliked: Reception closed until 15:00. Wifi only on 1st floor. Staffs didn't seem too happy doing their job. Night club downstairs so gets quite noisy on weekends. Though, there aren't many hostels in Switzerland so cant complain.

Liked: I like that the location is in the middle of the city, which is strategic for visiting many attractions around. I also love the public area which is nicely decorated, clean and full of booklets for information.

Disliked: My only complain is that the property is above a pub, in which the sound disturbed me a little bit.

Liked: Helpful staffs created a new key for me to use when I could not find my keys. Central location. Clean rooms with a sink, lockers, and tables. Finally, a splendid and atmospheric common room.

Disliked: A club is located right below the hostel so it might get noisy at night. Not a problem for me, since the staff offers free earplugs.

Liked: Clean rooms and large lockers (suitable for even big bags..참고로 24인치 캐리어도 가능). Been here back in 2008 and liked it which made me return to this place again after 6 years.

Disliked: A bit of walk from the train station. 15 mins? but had no choice since there is no wide choices of hostels in Bern. (only expensive Hotels..)

Liked: Internet connection is very good in the common areas. They sell food, postcards, souvenirs and Swiss army knifes in the reception. The vending machine has ramen/noodles which is great for a cheap dinner. Location is perfect: a couple of blocks away from the station and inside the old town. Easy walking access to all of the attractions, and also to supermarkets. Each bed has reading light and plugs available. The locker is big enough for a big backpack. There's a tv in the common room, radio, sofas, PCs, printer, kitchen, washing machines, etc. There's a lot of useful information in the walls (maps, tours, recommendations, etc). In general very good.

Disliked: Not much. There's only one toilet per gender per floor, so it MAY be a problem on high season (I was there in low season so no problem for me).

Liked: This property is centrally located and they had a lift available for getting luggage up to the top floors. Rooms were clean with enough lockers for everyone.

Disliked: There is nowhere to leave luggage if you arrive between 12-3. Though this is made clear when booking, some pay lockers in the common area would be helpful so that you don't have to sit and wait.
