This is a very clean hostel, well located near the CICG and other international institution buildings. Also not far from the train station. The system to go in and out is very practical and the staff is nice and they are available the whole day for help. The rooms and kitchen are clean and well equipped.

Very clean hostel with great facilities like hot showers, free lockers and a kitchen where even the fridges had locked compartments for your personal use. The location was very convenient to the main train station and city centre. But, I found the day staff unpleasant and unhelpful and the walls of the private rooms very thin so you could hear everything your neighbour was doing. OK for staying in if you want to keep your costs down whilst in Switzerland.

We were very happy with our stay in this hostel. The location is very good - less than 10 mins walk to the main railway station (from where you can take the 7 min train to the airport), and the tram passes by right outside. We had a double room with a bunk bed. The room was small but very clean, much due to the fact the the floors are made out of plastic carpet and not out of the hairy fabric ones.The AC was not very efficient so at times it was pretty humid inside. We opened the windows though.

Geneva is always going to be expensive but there are only a few hostels available. This is probably the best option though!

Staff is impolite. Reception works with huge breaks. Nobody on reception means you even can't get in.

Comfortable beds and very clean facilities. Movies screened each night in common area which is good for when you want a quiet evening. Staff weren't very friendly or helpful with providing information.

i think from memory the wifi wasn't the greatest but i encountered that in a few places i stayed in whilst in Eur. but it should be good for travellers as time is precious and we need to get a booking made or get transport schedules quickly etc and keep on the move. The girl working at the front desk was lovely and helpful. the place looks pretty nice with a few social areas. i liked the loungeTV/Movie area. The rooms were pretty simple. I believe all rooms must share a bathroom for this place.

The location is great. Whereas not include breakfast price is a bit high. During the night there was plenty of noise in the hallways. The staff is friendly and speak several languages​​.

Nice Hostel, quite cheap for Geneva and Switzerland in general. The bathrooms and other facilities are clean and practical. You have 24h access to the building. The hostel offers you a free ticket for the local public transport and discounted tickets for the Swiss Train System! Located five minutes away from the central train station and less than two minutes from several shops, I can really recommand this Hostel for a stay in Geneva!

Not a bad hostel. Nice and close to the train station and about 20 wall to the old town, but they provide free transport cards. Not much of an atmosphere but was an affordable place to stay. Kitchen facilities where good enough!!

The beds were the most comfortable of any hostel I've ever stayed in. Wifi was excellent, and the shower bathroom areas were clean and spacious. Good pick for a weekend stay!
