        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 and considering the cost of staying in Geneva city, this is a good place. Very close to Station Geneve and walking distance to any place of interest or your working place. The bathrooms were really clean (I mean it). I stayed in a single room with shared bathroom. I am not sure of the state of bathroom in other category of rooms.

        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.

        This hostel met all of my needs but I would likely stay somewhere else because it wasn't necessarily what I wanted. The room was clean, lockers were convenient, and bathrooms were fine. It's conveniently close to the train station which was also nice. I would recommend it if you're in Geneva to work and just need somewhere to sleep but not if you're traveling and looking for the 'hostel' experience. The common areas aren't very welcoming and most of the people there are working adults (which is completely fine but not necessarily what I was looking for). Regardless, it was clean and convenient.

        Value for money, cleaner than we expected”

        We didn’t expect much because it’s one of the cheapest hostel in Geneva, the room was small, but overall (room, shower room, toilets, kitchen) were cleaner than we thought. People were nice and helpful. There’re lockers for us to store our luggages after check-out. Definitely a good place for students and people with less budget. The only thing we hope could reinforce is the room too warm in summer/autumn, plus no oil or salt in kitchen.

        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.
