At City Hostel Geneva, we're here to make Switzerland's second-largest city feel familiar even if you're a stranger. Our multilingual staff are on reception 24 hours a day, every day, for everything you need. Bonding over good food and great chat is the best way to build up solid friendships – that's where our guest kitchen comes in! Meet new people and put your cooking skills to work, and munch in our spacious dining area. If you're not a natural chef, don't worry, Geneva has plenty of amazing restaurants!


It'll take you seven minutes to walk to us from the main train station, Cornavin. Getting here from Geneva Airport is easy (and free!) – just pick up a Unireso ticket from the machines in Arrivals to use any of the public transport for free for 80 minutes. That gives you plenty of time to reach us, as it takes only seven minutes by train to get from the airport to Cornavin station. We'll also give you a free travel card when you arrive so you won't need to pay for public transport during your stay. All the more money to save for cocktails, right?

We show free English movies every day – just what you need on those chilled nights in.

    I have arrived at night and I reserved the room 2 minutes before arrival. It didn’t take any time to check in. The receptionist was so polite and gave me a free transportation day ticket. I highly recommend this hostel. It’s one of the most clean hostels that I stayed in. They also provide a day locker facility so you can keep your luggage after checking out and take them back in the evening. Totally amazing ❤️

    This is a very good place to stay. Very close to the Geneva train station and metro stops just few steps from the hostel. Staff was very friendly and the kitchen was well equipped with all facilities available. Rooms and bathroom were also very clean and tidy. A recommended place to stay.

    Very Good

    The City Hostel Geneva is located in close proximity to the Geneva train station. While this is great for when you need to go somewhere, as a solo female traveler I did not feel safe walking around the area and called an Uber to get around. The hostel itself was a typical hostel, except there were strange bugs in the shower that I couldn't identify. Good prices for souvenirs and snacks. Luggage storage even on checkout day. I would recommend if you need to get to the train station quickly.

    Affordable and centrally located I stayed its this hostel for a late night checkin and early departure. The facilities were adequate, but its a very young, party crowd- great if that is what you're looking for, but annoying if you are hoping to sleep.

    The room smelled pretty terrible, the previous unwashed sheets were still on my bed, and there is this bright red light that must be kept on at night if you want to have power for any of your electronics. Otherwise, everything was just fine.
