Liked: Friendly staff, great hostel with lot of chilling spot and a good buffet in the morning. The room were tinny but we sleep well in silence even with the windows open. We really enjoy our stay!

Disliked: It was a little far from the train station if you walk, but is near if you're willing to pay for the chairlift. Because the city is really upper than the hostel. The shower are only separate with a curtain and you don't have space to put your clothes near you, so don't be shy to be naked in front of other.

Liked: The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, not to mention patient with my very rusty German, and they really kept the place sparkling clean. The environment was great and was obviously very safe and welcoming. Breakfast was solid as well. I would definitely go back here if I were fortunate enough to be on my way back to Bern again any time soon.

Disliked: Obviously the price was pretty up there, but it is a great place either way; they don't cut corners here!

Liked: Good location close to the main area. Buffet breakfast was included and there was a good selection. Lockers in the room and baggage storage available if you need it. Free wifi.

Disliked: There was no kitchen, just a microwave and kettle and a large sitting area. The showers were really annoying as they operated by pushing a button that kept turning off every few seconds, making the water go cold again every time you turn it back on! There is also nowhere to put your stuff while you have a shower unless you just leave it in the main changing and sink area. Very expensive for what you get but that just seems to be what Switzerland is like.

Liked: The included breakfast was excellent & linen was included too

Disliked: Some of the staff were rude, not enough floor space to put your bag in the 6 bed dorm & 22 bed dorm. Expensive but I think that's just Bern in general. You have to walk up a steep hill to get to town
