    The hostel is nice, it has a good atmosphere. We stayed in a room that stink because of the two people that were sleeping there but the staff was amazing and we were able to switch to other room. The breakfast is simple but it’s worth it for the price of the stay.

    Overall I really liked this hostel. It’s only a 10 minute walk from the train station and has many restaurants nearby. The lockers provided are a good size, though they’re outside the room. The beds are made of wood which is nice because of minimal noise compared to metal. My only issue with the hostel is that breakfast was included (which I imagine increased the nightly rate by a few CHfs) but didn’t start until 6:30, which meant that leaving at 6am I wasn’t able to get anything.

    Simple, clean hostel in a good location. Staff were very friendly/helpful and the free breakfast was a nice touch, although pretty basic. Wifi (in my case) was patchy - perhaps it was just that weekend? This is a large hostel and does cater for school trips.

    Good value for the money. Perfect for one night before going to the airport. Breakfast was good coffee and OK toast, cereal, cheese, ham slices and juice. Bunks and locks make a lot of noise but the lockers are enormous (I could have fit in there with my bag!) Very secure with card key for room and locker. Shower OK, but tiny and no hooks for stuff. Close to trams, buses, park and lake. You need to climb stairs to reach some rooms. Need to make and unmake your bed. Bed very comfy but small.

    Was only there to sleep, was clean enough and the lady checking me in was nice. The night guy was a bit rude though as I had to leave fairly early

    It was ok. Great for one night. You can hear through the walls. The beds have writing all over them from other guest. Most of them are rude and perverted. Front desk was not friendly or have any patience expect for one lady I think her name is Candice. I can’t remember but she was there when I checked and was pleasant. For one night was ok but it was still a struggle sadly. Ok location near the river.

    Bathrooms and lockers are located outside of the rooms, so lots of coming and going in and out of the room. My top bunk was right under the bright lights for the room and there were tons of bugs on the ceiling near the light (dead and alive) that wasn’t pleasant. Have to get sheets from downstairs, bring them to your bed, make your bed, then strip when you’re done and bring them back downstairs. Thought that was kind of crazy. Lots of high schoolers staying making tons of noise.

    It was very noisy at all hours, so I did not sleep very well. The showers were not very clean either. This hostel is in a good location and includes breakfast. And the common area is the lobby.

    This hostel experience has by far been the worst my friends and I have experienced. The staff was very unhelpful and rude. We asked how to get to the main town of Geneva and they seemed confused and did not help at all. We also had to put on our own sheets, which normally I would not mind. However, the beds were disgusting. After the trip we experienced having bed bugs, and after we found out we contacted the hostel and they were rude and not willing to provide a refund nor apologize
