Good hostel for the money. Very clean and has great bathrooms. There needs to be 24 hour reception at this hostel, or at least someone to contact in case you are locked out.

When looking for a hostel in Geneva there were only really the choice of two. The city hostel is in a good location for walking to the lake/old town/getting to the station etc, the area directly outside is not so nice, but I think this is just due to it being a city location. Unfortunately the hostel itself is very clinical and due to the size unless you have good room mates your unlikely to get chatting. The only communal area is in the basement so doesn't attract people to it.

Like most things in Geneva, it's a bit expensive for what you get. The rooms are a bit small, but it's not really an issue until everyone is trying to get their stuff out of the lockers at the same time.

The hostel is great for backpackers who want a central location to use as a base. Geneva is very walkable, especially with the weather we got, and it was easy to commute to and from the train station. The facilities were standard, and the staff was helpful in answering any questions we had. Because we were backpacking, it was a great base for us, as we were exploring all day and didn't really need the facilities.

Big and anonymous hostel, atmosphere is more like in a hotel. There is a sink in every room, so the bathrooms are less crowded.

Staff was pretty rude on a number of occasions. Awesome location! So close to the train. You had to pay a deposit for almost everything which was annoying. The building was pretty secure. No real atmosphere or place to hangout and drink to meet others
