Liked: It's located in really nice sorroundings. Having breakfast while looking through the huge windows at the trees and river is great. Breakfast is good too, but there's no fruit or fruit salad, which i would have liked.

Disliked: It has 3 floors plus the ground floor but there's no lift. There's no kitchen, just a microwave oven, mini fridge and electric kettle, which you have to fill with water from the toilet as there's no sink. The 5-bed room was really small. We had to climb on a ladder to get to the lockers! I stayed on the second floor and the women's toilets were on the first and third. The showers had plastic curtains. They also charge you 6 extra francs per night if you are not a member of hostelling international, which is a lot! (I'm a member luckily) To get wifi you need to have a mobile phone because they send you an sms with the password (and this is after entering a code which they change every day) I think it's ridiculously complicated! They also charged me 20 euros more than my booking said on the excuse that the present change rate was different from when I had made the reservation. Finally, though this has nothing to do with the hostel, Bern is extremely expensive (using the toilet at the train station costs 2 swiss francs, which is the same as 2 euros, so you'd better hold it till you get to the hostel toilet!)

Liked: We booked a 20 person dorm room and were placed in a 6 person dorm room instead which was nice. They had free hair dryers to use and the breakfast was really good. We also had a balcony to our room.

Disliked: There was a giant hill to climb to get to the train station.

Liked: It was a really nice place, and the location was superb.

Disliked: There was not really anything I particularly disliked, though it was more expensive than most other hostels I've stayed in, without offering anything that they did not.

Liked: Clean, friendly, close to the historical center and transoprtation.

Disliked: I would say, too many people for such a small room - but may be that is normal for a hostel.

Liked: The building held the noise from outside the rooms out. You didn't hear everything that was going on outside of the room which is a bonus over some of the older wooden lodgings we've been in.

Disliked: The property itself was decent, we ended up with some poor roommates and didn't get a very good night's sleep, but had they not been so obnoxious it would have been alright.
