    Very clean facilities, everything looks brand new, and my 6-bed dorm had its own separate toilet and shower rooms (clever). I wouldn't come here looking for a social experience, though, so steer clear if you're looking for that "community feel" commonly found in many other hostels.

    My friend and I had an incredible stay at the hotel. The facilities were lovely and the room was very nice, the ac worked great and the bed was super comfy and the bathroom was great. The shared kitchen was also super useful and had really nice appliances. We would definitely recommend to others and will look to stay in a meininger again ourselves

    This is such a great place to stay - I was travelling alone so I appreciated the security of the rooms and the helpfulness of the staff. It felt like I was staying in a hotel, but for the price of a hostel! In a city like Geneva that is pretty expensive, it was a gift to be able to stay somewhere so accessible and professional for such good value. The dorms are generous and super clean, staff go out of their way to give you tips, and the food/facilities are sensational - wish I'd stayed longer!

    Dorm and private bathroom were kept clean; liked the hotel's overall space and science theme. Fan coil based cooling was not as powerful as air conditioning, but was better than nothing. Location is in a quiet neiborhood but easily accessible to downtown and the main train station. Nice that towels were provided with stay! Staff were very nice throughout stay.

    Hands down one of the best hostels I have stayed in. Super clean, great temperature even without aircon in the room. Also had a bus stop right outside which either took you directly to the centre or Geneva or directly to the airport which was super handy! Loved our stay and would 100% stay again when returning to Geneva!!!

    The hostel was clean and felt nice for the value. We booked 2 beds and the beds were basically 2 beds side-by-side into one big bed. Luckily, it was a friend and I so it wasn’t a problem but I could see it being a problem for someone else. This hostel isn’t an outgoing one so don’t expect to make friends. The location ended up being further from everything we wanted to do so we had to catch the buses.

    Very Good

    Great hostel, some staff really went out of their way to help, others not so much. But all were well informed and helpful if not friendly. Room was clean and really spacious. We stayed in a private 6 bed room. Facilities in the room were good, although adding a kettle to the private rooms would be great. Washing clothes wasn’t great as the guy on the front desk said, we always have problems with the machines. Easy to get in a out of Geneva on public transport. Parking was secure.

    I did not enjoy my stay here while in Geneva. The place has a weird vibe, the location is terrible, and the bed was not comfortable. I would not stay here again.
