    stay was good, location is perfect, very close to the lake, not far from the Lighthouse bit dated furniture (priv. 2-bed) never understood why use wall-mounted shower instead of shower wands - can wait for ages to direct water to where you need it to go, just end up using more free breakfast (nothing fancy, just cheese, ham and coffee), if low on cash - will suffice oh, the view from the top floor to the lake - best thing ever, lucky if you get sunny weather, you may not want to leave :)

    Clean, very secure hostel with an excellent breakfast, easy access to public transit, and very professional staff. Clean bathrooms with good showers, loved the secure lockers, and felt very safe. It's pricey but that's Geneva for you. Only criticism - the outlets are upside-down on the beds and our chargers fell out, making it difficult to charge our devices!

    Check in process was efficient and offered bag storage before the stated check in time. Rooms were adequate, with linens and a large locker provided. Internet access/working space was good and morning breakfast was provided and filling.

    Geneva Hostel is very elegant and clean however it suffers from the lack of a true hostel atmosphere. It felt more professional like a hotel and was hard to meet others in true hostel fashion. If you come with friends I can wholeheartedly recommend this hostel but if you are a solo traveler like me, it’ll be lonely.

    Great location, just steps away from lake Geneva and the city centre. As a solo female traveller, I felt very safe even at night. There is no “hostel” atmosphere at all. It’s mainly people living there temporarily so they aren’t looking to socialize.

    Very Good

    Fairly pricey for what it offered, Geneva Hostel is really a hotel and not a hostel. There’s no atmosphere whatsoever, although it was the off-season when I visited. The staff were very nice though, and my room was only half-full because of COVID restrictions, which was appreciated. The location isn’t terrible, but it’s about a 20 minute walk to the downtown area where all the things to do are. But I enjoyed a nice, quiet time here nonetheless.

    It’s just not a hostel really. There’s no atmosphere and the facilities aren’t great. Don’t stay here for more than a night unless you have to. Only perk was that the staff were very helpful but even they didn’t give off a good vibe. Overall meh experience and I wouldn’t come back
