Welcome to our hostel

Bern Youth Hostel in the Marzili district can welcome guests with its fresh new look. All that remains is its unique location between the Federal Parliament Building and the River Aare.
Bern Youth Hostel is worthy of a capital city. The listed hostel with a view of the Aare loop has been offering a bright extension with seminar rooms and a garden seating area since April 2018. As before, you'll be able to plan activities over lunch or under the trees, including a visit to the square in front of the Federal Parliament Building with its 26 water fountains, the bear park, the Paul Klee centre, the Einstein House or the arcades in the historic old town. And don't miss out on the excitement of swimming in the River Aare or biking on the Gurten mountain!

Hostel is in a good location and is clean and modern. The breakfast options were good too. Check in opened at 14.00 but the room wasn't available to 15.00 this seemed odd

Auberge agréable et vraiment idéalement située: au calme près de l'Aare, juste en-dessous du Palais Fédéral donc à 5 minutes de la vieille ville. Petit bémol pour les douches, mal conçues, le chauffage trop fort (nous avons dû dormir la fenêtre ouverte en plein hiver) et le fait qu'en 3 jours la poubelle n'a pas été vidée une seule fois dans notre chambre de 6.
