        Solo traveler who stayed in Dorm”

        I'm a female traveler who stayed in a mixed-dormitory for a night. I feel safe with my male roommates who are solo as well. Although the room was quite small to open a large luggage, glad that both roommates only used their backpacks. More space for me to unpack/pack. You can easily find the location using Google Maps. It is also near the train station. The bathrooms are clean. I will stay in this hostel again in case I'll drop by Geneva.

        Great for the price”

        A friend and I went to Geneva for a weekend trip from Paris. We didn't care where we stayed, we just wanted something close to the center and we planned to just drop our bags and go - which is exactly what we did! We arrived around 11 and they let us check in early which was great. We got a room with 2 bunkbeds, so KIND of like a dorm but our own private dorm? With shared bathrooms which was fine for us. It was about 15 min walk to the city center. Great value for the price

        Great location near train station and supermarkets. Very clean and towels provided plus free wifi”

        No toiletries like shampoo or soap. No USB ports downstairs for charging. Limited cooking facilities which is a dhame given high price of food with no cooker and only 1 microwave. No pool table or games to encourage interaction. Standard padlocks don’t work. A good basic hostel with a great location.

        Very small room. we had a hard time opening our luggage. If you are staying in geneva only for a night its ok. For those who are not comfortable staying in a room with no toilet this is not for you. Staff are very nice they gave us free transportation pass for the period of our stay. There are hotels near the station that you can get with almost the same price and with toilet. Will not recommend to friends and family sorry.
