    Few minutes walk to the old city center but farther than I would have liked from the Mont Veyrier trailhead. Good for a short stay.

    Probably the best equipped hostel kitchen I’ve seen. Lovely patio outside to sit out and soak in the sun while using the wifi and having a drink or bite to eat from the cafe/bar there (although the guest discounts on the drinks were barely anything and the prices were more than I would’ve expected to pay in the centre ville..) I would’ve liked the reception to be more helpful and have more information on stuff to do and hiking routes etc. Sucks the wifi isn’t available in the rooms.

    Was great to stay just to sleep and eat in the kitchen to meet new people. Although, kitchen closes overnight and the electricity is shut off to the oven and stove so if you're leaving early dont plan on making breakfast, they do provide free tea and coffee though! Excellent way to store food in the fridge and in bins, really nice terrace and comfortable beds. Bar is currently closed for renovation.

    Overall very good hostel, good kitchen, nice area outside, and good location only a short walk from the old town. Helpful and friendly staff! Would be useful to have bigger lockers. Generally clean, however there were some ants on the floor of my room.

    This hostel is charming in it's own way. After staying in large hostels in big cities, I appreciate the 1€ towels for hire and free luggage storage. Staff is very friendly. Directions to hostel from train station are perfect! Basic amenities and kitchen are provided. I wish I would have stayed another night and cooked something delicious from the fresh food at the market. Free coffee in the morning!

    Since I only stayed one night, I didn't really have many problems, but what did bother me was the fact that there were some ants on the floor of the room. I understand that the hostel has a very natural vibe, there are trees and grass all around, but this shouldn't be happening. Also, I was a little disappointed by the price, it was written on the website when I made the reservation that I would have to pay a total of 20.50 for that specific date, but I ended up having to pay 3 euros more.
