    Exceptional Facilities”

    This hostel has nice big lockers with key card entry, well maintained bathrooms, wonderful breakfast, and friendly staff. The locker storage after checkout was cheap and easy to access. My only complaint was the floors were extremely creaky and even one step would wake the whole dorm up. The water pressure in the showers was the best I've ever encountered.

    excellant facility but too big for making connection with other travellers”

    the place is big and large groups were using the place. The breakfast was really good, cereals, yogurts, fresh fruit, cheese and meat, bread, tea, coffee and juice. The staff were helpful and provided the free transport card without asking and provided directions for the bus I needed. Easy to get to, clean and safe area.

    The room is very clean and facilities are good. Breakfast is awesome! Everything is perfect except the kitchen is small and not well equipped, and people who used the kitchen didn’t clean it (which is not the owners’ fault ).

    very clean and well managed, but a little noisy because of the group guests, especially young adults or students - they chatted and lauged too loudly even at the late evening like they were in their own home. Other than that, everything is good.

    nice budget hostel”

    Good location. 10 mins walk from the train station and 2 mins walk to the lake. clean and spacious room, helpful staff. It sounds good, but my stay was totally nightmares! I stayed at 1st floor for 2 nights. Noise from the traffic outside, which i can understand. But the worse thing is noise coming from the same floor outside my room. 1st night seemed there were NBA game playing outside my room and the corridor. Basket ball hitting the wall and the floor with exciting people shout and jumped!!! Slamming the doors were another games as well. 2nd night was another group of people , mainly girls. Shouted and slammed the door...! This time I can't stand anymore. I got up bed and compliant to the staff on duty at 11:30pm. Thank God! Finally I could get a good sleep. So please remind everyone 10pm is the quiet time when they checkin ,especially those with a group. And stick a reminder on the lift and the door. other than that, I had a nice stay there. thanks

    Hostel was pretty far from the train station. Clean overall, but bare minimum in the rooms, and the outlets in the beds were super loose. Breakfast was good though, and the staff was friendly! Not bad for the price, but you could probably find something else for a similar price.

    Okay for the price”

    They can’t handle the check-in time, so if you have reserved Geneva Hostel, you MUST check-in after 2pm. Bed was not that clean(hairs, dust..) but they gave each people the bed cover and the blanket. I really liked the security though. You always have to bring your room card with you all the time, otherwise you can’t even go to the toilet lol

    The free public transport travel card is very helpful.You just hop in and out of any bus/tram/train.Breakfast is good too.A table in the room could have been helpful.There were a lot of school children staying on the same floor and in other floors who were very noisy.But overall,good value for money.As I think this is the cheapest hostel in Geneva.

    Fantastic location !!!”

    The hostel is situate just steps away from the lake. In a very quite area. The room was big and pretty well isolated from any noises. The personal was very helpful and super friendly. Breakfast was so so, but it's a hostel, so I just skipped it at the end. Lots of convenience stores that take euros and even give u change in euro coins. Right across a police station , so felt very safe. The botanical garden and the UN building is close by. But just be prepared that I didn't get a towel, so either bring ur own or ask them to provide h with one ( not sure if they do - worth asking in advance).

    An excellent place to crash for a night or two. As always, experiences in hostels depend a lot on your luck of who you might share a room with and how courteous they are. But the hostel encourages good behavior with quiet hours, individual reading lamps and outlets for each person, secure lockers outside the room, etc etc. Good amenities and a great price.
