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.

    This place was wonderful. Very clean, incredibly helpful and friendly staff. Easily accessible from the main train station and therefore everywhere in the city. Storage lockers available for free (with lock deposit if you have no lock). Well-priced on top of that! Thank you City Hostel Geneva!

    Very nice place to stay, incredibly clean and tidy. Staff was very friendly, and helped us find a few amazing spots in the city! Only complaint would be that the neighborhood was fairly noisy at night (lots of traffic/train noise), but ear plugs would make it the perfect spot!!

    I booked a three person mixed dorm. The rooms were very small and my first night there I was very worried about potentially being the only woman in such a small private space. I was placed with two other girls the first night and the second night I shared the room with another girl, but an older man was supposed to share our room as well and he felt uncomfortable and did not return. The reception was wonderful. It was super clean. I would stay here again. Only issue is room size can be awkward.

    This hostel had a really nice atmosphere and was more like a friendly hotel, so the price was fairly good. The living room was cosy. And I didn't feel too old here as the ages were mixed! The bedroom was comfortable.

    The hostel is very well located, less than 10 minutes walk to train station and around the corner from a Lidl (grocery store) and a stop for tram line 15. Facilities were nice enough, beds were fairly comfortable, but I did not get more than an hour of sleep at a time because I had very disruptive, inconsiderate roommates in my dorm. One woman turned on all the lights and started CLAPPING at 3AM!! Can't say that I left well-rested... would probably stay here again, I just had bad luck I guess.

    Very basic hostel. Nice clean showers and the kitchen was very nice. It’s only a few blocks from the main train station so easy to get too.

    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.
