Geneva is an expensive place, so it is nice to have a hostel like this, located near the train station. The hostel is very well organized with very nice and helpful staff. It is clean and the kitchen is organized and easy to use?

A clean, secure, place with comfortable beds. The staff are great, really helpful and they speak great English. I would definitely use again if staying in Geneva.


perfect location, bedrooms and bathrooms are very clean and tidy. staff are nice and helpful price is reasonable best hostel ever!!


Short walk from the train station and very close to shops and food. Everything was clean, beds were very nice and I received a travel card when I arrived that worked for the whole day. Small room and small kitchen but everything worked. Also they have a nice area to relax downstairs.


Nice place, but no real social atmosphere. However, Geneva doesn't seem to be that vibrant of a city. The hostel has a great location near the train station and the free transport card was a plus.


No free breakfast? and a bad map of the city, for the price I paid I expected a lot more.


Stayed here for one night on our way to the South of France and everything about it was fine. It is a large hostel with a lot of people and has a very 'hotel' feel to it. Rooms were spacious and comfortable, and bathrooms were clean so it was suitable for an overnight stay. Also seems to be pretty centrally located with a 20-25 minute walk to old town, and about 15 minutes to the central station.


A lovely hostel in a very good location near the train station.


Another huge hostel in Switzerland that feels more like a hospital. Not much of a vibe and not a lot of help from the staff. Of course ask a question and you'll get an answer at least. My dorm door was broken and sometimes would not open (you almost had to kick it in, meaning wake everyone in the room every time someone enters and leaves. Kitchen facilities were not adequate for the volume of people
