The building is nice and the staff helpful, but there were some issues. I stayed in a 20 bed dorm and there was only 1 plug! Moreover, the wifi was not very good and the bathrooms were very small and HOT. The room also had a kind of bad smell...

As a first time hostel user, the staff were very helpful. The directions were easy to follow, the hostel was incredibly well located, in a quiet but incredibly central place, in the shadow of the parliament building. I stayed in the large dorm, which had really big lockers, and OK beds. It wasn't the height of comfort, and the shower and toilet provision left a little to be desired. It wasn't totally clean or shiny new, but it felt very safe friendly. The large communal area was brilliant, and the free travel pass was a good bonus, and the breakfast, although quite basic, was free, so nothing to complain about there. All in all I was pleased I chose it, and it deserves to be ranked higher than it is. A very sound place to stay.

It's right behing Bundeshaus and next to the river, you can easily go to the city center or enjoy a beautiful view from the river. The rooms and the bathrooms are very clean, the breakfast had a few good options but was still very good.

I stayed at this hostel because there was a convention in town and all the other hotels were full. The room was simple but clean. A very small bed and a little uncomfortable. It is located in the lower town, near the river, but fairly close to downtown. I had never stayed in hostel before, but from what I've heard from others who have stayed at other hostels around the world this seemed a little poor.

The hostel was relatively well-located, easy to navigate from the central train station (hauptbahnof). Room was rather cramped (5 in the family in a room) but still acceptable, but the cold shower was just bad. Apart from having to keep pushing a button to keep the water flowing, the water was barely warm and turned freezing cold very quickly, which is not what you want especially in winter. We were also staying next to a family with babies, so there was some disturbance but nothing much you can do about that.
