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.

    Very Swiss: super clean, friendly and efficient. The free breakfast is an awesome complete meal. This is not a quaint old location, and it’s big, 6 floors so not super cozy, but very well run and 10 minutes from the train station, 5 from the tram and the beautiful Geneva waterfront.

    I stayed for 2 nights there. I lost my access card the first hour of my stay but they were nice enough to just lend me another one. Communication with the staff was a little difficult at times, as I don't speak any French. The bathroom left unattended most of the time. A guy used the lady's room once and nobody noticed. Showers are hard to understand as water stops running every 5 seconds or so.

    Nice location and a good breakfast included. I liked that the room and the lockers had keycard entry but I didnt like that the lockers were in the hall way and not in the room. The room was fine but could use some updating, i.e USB charge ports at the beds so that travelers dont have to worry about renting converters.

    No frills hostel. No bar or social area or activities. Pretty austere place, not the best location. One of the shabbier neighborhoods in Geneva.

    This hostel was totally fine and a decent option for Geneva, especially in terms of price. The beds were fairly comfy and breakfast was included. Otherwise there was No atmosphere at all and it really felt like a dormitory. It felt a little bit out of the city center. Overall totally fine just nothing special.

    Does the job. No atmosphere, beds uncomfy and WiFi is very bad. You have to make your own bed which isn’t an issue but some other guests arrived late and had to turn the light on while we slept to put their sheets on. It’s close to the station and the security lockers are good. The staff were very helpful with our questions as well.

    This hostel was very busy and crowded. While I met nice people, there didnt seem to be any quiet areas to make phone calls or do work. The bathrooms were dirty and the requirement to make and dismantle your own bed was off-putting, especially considering the very high price compared to other hostels. I have physical limitations, so it was actually impossible for me to properly make my bed and had to sleep on the plastic cover - very uncomfortable. They also charge $4 for luggage storage.
