Good value for Geneva, but large and basic, no real hostel feel to it.

Geneva hostel was in a convenient location and provided free public transportation all over the city which was nice. The staff was a little older and did not speak very good english, which was little disappointing. A nice hearty breakfast was included which was great.

Really great place to stay. It was big, clean, and all the staff members we interacted with were pleasant for the most part. Really close to the river and easy to walk places, but also near public transportation. Would definitely stay here again!

In this hostel, I gave up to use WiFi and went to the Kebab restaurant near the hostel to catch the Internet connection.

For all the world it was like an industrialised version of a hostel. No craic at all.

This hostel has a lot of school groups that overwhelm the place. They're loud and always in the lobby because thats where you get wifi. I liked the big lockers. Had to wait an hour in line for breakfast because so many high school kids. Beware of hidden charges: towels, luggage storage, etc. Overall too big for me but not a lot of selection with hostels in geneva.

Geneva itself is expensive, so obviously the cost was a bit steep for a hostel. The accommodations were very basic, the rooms were large with huge lockers, the bathrooms were good, clean big and showers worked well. The wifi was a bit dodgy, only worked in certain rooms making it inconvenient. The breakfast was nice and early but show up earlier rather than later. The staff were helpful and funny. The kitchen didn't have much to it, cooking was next to impossible. The free transit card was nice.

funky, bad tempered old staff, bed sheets are terrible and coarse. toilets dirty. there are only 2hostels in Geneva, I recommend the other one. it's a little bit less spacious but really clean and nice, both are in a same street with perfect central location in the city.

This hostel is good one but its too expensive compared to the price they charge.

This hostel was pricey, but was an excellent value for the money. It was VERY secure (free large lockers that you didn't need your own lock for) and had large facilities. No wifi in the rooms, but a very spacious common area with lots of seats where you did have wifi access. The thing that really sold me was that they gave us a free transport card to use on all of the public transport in Geneva -- which is great because transportation is very expensive otherwise. I would DEFINITELY recommend.

The staff was very rude!!!! The staff member told us he needed to go eat lunch then would come back and help us after. I would not stay here again, they put us on the floor with the tiny bathroom, 1 shower 1 toilet. Breakfast was subpar, and ruined my overall geneva experience.

Breakfast was very poor.

Nice and easy. Convenient but if have access to the Internet from the room would be awesome.

Sometimes, the amount of locked doors (mainly, for the bathrooms) is annoying.
