Great, and would have been even better if the top bunk had [1} a bedside light, and [2] a shelf (or even just a couple of hooks) to hold a water bottle, watch, phone, book, etc.

On the downside the place is expensive, there are ads everywhere, and they've definitely set up some sneaky ways to take your money from you (most notably they give you a tiny towel and then put up ads for renting large ones). I also struggled to sleep because the mattress was uncomfortable and the walls are thin. Things I liked were individual lockers in the fridge, English language movies each night, free public transport pass, professional cleaning on a daily basis, and the book exchange.

Everything is expensive in Geneva, this is a cheap stay for Geneva standards. The free card for public transport is great.

Good place to stay for a few nights , it was the cheapest in Geneva. Feels more like a hotel then a hostel. Not much atmosphere for meeting people but you can still have a good time with the people in your room. Kitchen was nice because eating in Geneva can be very expensive. Bathrooms were clean. 5 min walk from the train station , 5 min walk to the lake and fountain.

Good value for Switzerland. I wish that the bathrooms were bigger, but that is a normal hostel gripe. Staff was pretty average but they did their jobs.

This hostel was REALLY expensive - but it's Geneva, so everything is! However, the hostel was clean and comfortable and having a kitchen was a huge bonus - we saved a ton of money by not having to eat out.

Very clean and a variety of amenities were available. Transportation pass included was a huge bonus!!

The reception was available only within certain hours which made it difficult to solve any issues, ask questions or leave/arrive outside these hours. The rooms are very small and I saw only two showers for the entire floor, which contains many multiple room-mates rooms. There are also only 3 toilettes for too many people. Two of them turned nonfunctional by the end of the day, and the third impossible to use due to very poor hygiene. The time-passing room was small and noisy (many people).

Location is OK, there is a kitchen which is avaliable until 11pm. The hostel is good for Geneve.Therefore, if it is compared to other city hostels, it does not worth the money.

WIFI WORKS PERFECTLY. Please note the reception opening time though. FROM 7:30-12:00,13:00-24:00 midnight.

除了没有电梯需要搬着大箱子上楼梯有点累之外,其他还是很不错的。走大约十分钟可以到湖边,离火车站也挺近,拖着大箱子也不会觉得特别费劲。个人觉得合住房间足够大了,所以我是属于不太挑剔的那群人?

Expensive for what you get, but hey it's switzerland, everything is expensive. Beds are comfortable showers are really nice. Good location to catch trains!

Very corporate vibe. No locks provided. Towels have to be rented. Bed has to be made yourself and linen returned at the end. Location close to train station but not to main attractions. Good wifi. This was the cheapest hostel I could find on short notice, but much more expensive than a hostel of this quality in another city. Geneva is very expensive in general.

Great clean hostel, perfect for an alternative to a hotel for a few nights. Wouldn't recommend for large young groups as not many big events organised etc, but great for a few nights rest! Highly recommended
