Recent months have also seen the complete renovation and expansion of the Bern Youth Hostel.
On March 29, 2018, the refurbished historic listed hostel, along with its new extension, will open its doors and offer a total of 184 beds. The accessible youth hostel – situated on the banks of the Aare river, just down from the Parliament Building – features an open floor concept and generous glass facades. In addition to supper, the hostel now will also offer lunch. Reservations are already being taken.
