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.

    Lovely staff, incredibly convenient facilities, and very accommodating. Really cool they give you a free travel pass and wifi as you check in, you can check out without seeing anyone also. I had to get my early morning flight so left at 4am and they gave me a packed breakfast to take with me (they offered at check in this option). Couldn't have asked for more :) I was in a 6bed female dorm but only one other girl was there with me (probably due to COVID - so felt very quiet, easy and spacious)!

    The atmosphere is often influenced by who is staying at the hostel. While at Geneva, there were many workers who had made their way into the country and were staying at the hostel. Some gave me problems. Otherwise, my experience was superb. I loved the location of this hostel, and really liked many of the people whom I met during my stay. The hostel was extremely clean and friendly. And, the breakfast was a great spread! It felt more like a four-star hotel.

    This is an excellent hostel the lockers are key card set and large for a huge suitcase. The shower is too high up and water goes from the soap tray onto eyes. The evening food is awesome and the breakfast with museli was ok but they put sugar in it. Only problem is the world hostel rate is about £15 a night and this was £’s not ok for everyone else to adjust to swiss prices🟧🟥

    Great location and hard to beat the price in Geneva. More of a hotel vibe than hostel vibe, but was suitable for a quick stay.

    The staff during check-in was very nice and helpful, even though I came quite late. The bed was comfortable, with sockets, light etc. I hated the showers - there is a common area with bathtubs and then individual lockable cabins, where you are supposed to undress, shower and dress again. It is very small, and there is very little place to put stuff. The shower head is not adjustable and sprays the water in stupid direction (all my clothes got wet, yet I could not get wet properly :D ).

    Very Good

    Genuinely a fine hostel and a really good, central location. I would say that it is just a bit dated, and one of the more expensive hostels I’ve stayed at (although it is Geneva so it’s all relative). Basic but fine!

    it felt a little empty because of the Covid-19 situation, the place is clean and clear organised... there were just 2 things: the confirmation of my booking said another prize then the person at the reception was asking me first, this took a long time. So there is a communication which is not very clear about prizes and bookings. And the first room i got was not cleaned, so i went back to the reception and got a new one. my experience so mixed and i would come back anyway.

    No Backpacker Hostel. People just go there to crash for a night. Be careful of what you leave in the fridge. I had something stolen.
