If you fancy being in a stylish neighbourhood surrounded by hotels, then choose Geneva Hostel. We're in a peaceful area, with stunning views of Mont Blanc and the city's sparkly lake from the outdoor terrace. We've got a 24-hour reception and no curfew, so you can turn up at any time and make the most of freebies like breakfast, bed linen and Wi-Fi. We also have a cosy TV room for (rare) nights in. Grab one of our complimentary city maps to get exploring.


We're about 2km from the postcard-perfect Old Town, known as Vieille Ville in French, with its museums and chocolate shops. You'll get a free public transport card when you stay with us, so you can easily make your way here. If you want to get to Geneva railway station, it's only an 11-minute walk away. We've got a couple of green spaces around the corner as well – including the pretty Parc de La Perle du Lac. If you're coming to the city by plane, you can get a train to the main station, and then tram No 15 to Butini to reach us.

Rooms and Dorms

Feeling lazy? Ride up to your mixed, male or female-only dorm using the elevator. You'll have a locker included to make storing your stuff easy. If you want space to yourself, we've got private rooms. Some have shared bathrooms and some are en-suite – so you can take your pick!

Extras and activities

When you're hungry, you can order food in the café-restaurant or warm up a ready meal in the microwave. We've also got vending machines for on-the-go snacks. Grab a mate for a couple of games of foosball or pick up a book from the mini library and chill in the common room – ideal with a cuppa (just use the tea and coffee making facilities). Mid-way through a backpacking trip? We're guessing your wardrobe might need a refresh! Get your stuff washed in the on-site laundry facilities.

    We loved the location, how clean it was, how they give you a bus pass for your time there everything !!!!!! Would definitely stay there again. This side note has nothing to do with the hostel in anyway but to the Guy that stayed there on June 17 2019 on the fourth floor you suck !!!!! You need medical attention, if you snore like that don’t stay in a multi guess room

    One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. I was only there for about 12 hours, but the value even for that was great. Loved the security. The staff was a little unhelpful in the morning, but that was likely due to it being a busy time during checkout, so I don't want to even dock points for that.

    Room was great and lockers were spacious. In the girl’s restroom was surprised there was only one toilet to use for the whole floor as it would create a line. Showers were great and plenty. Room was clean but got hot. Kitchen was spacious and easy to access. Cannot cook anything yourself though. Breakfast was regular stuff but tasted good. Was only there one night so overall a great experience.

    I was with a group of older visitors from the US en route back from a hiking holiday in Switzerland, with a one night layover in Geneva. We were very comfortable at the hostel, 3 of us women in a 6 bunk room. The beds were good, the hall bathrooms clean, the large lockers right outside the door very convenient, all accessed via the same electronic keycard . Loved the location, a few minutes from the lake, easy walking distance from the central rail station, and quick access to the airport.

    Very Good

    Excellent location, only twenty minutes walk from the Palais de Nations and right by the lake! The rooms were quite small, and the lockers were in the corridor. There seemed to only be one female toilet for the entire floor. There was no guest kitchen. Breakfast was good. Adaptors can be rented for free with a 10CHF deposit. Not great for nightlife, the client body seemed to mostly be younger or older than what I've experienced in other hostels.

    Even though my stay was ok, toilets were not so clean. The hostel is more a kind of a money making company than a home-like host, they charge you for everything. Location is great but not perfect. Atmosphere is inexistant and also there are a lot of large groups of teenagers. Rooms don't have ventilation or ac, so you have to leave the window open. Facilities are ok but not very comfortable. Kitchen is poorly equiped and in a basement, and power outlet in rooms are facing downwards.

    The hostel completely lacks of atmosphere. It is like a big city where there are a lot of people but noone knows anyone. The socializing spots are far from the main way and not used. At the arrival WiFi was not working. They try to make money selling/renting anythings: towels, shampoos, locker to deposit the luggage before leaving... Pros: Position Price Breakfast Cons: Atmosphere and socializing Feeling of being just a number that can bring money - no cure for the guest No more than to sleep
