I was there for almost 2 weeks. thousands of bed bugs bit me. When i complained about that, they gave us another room with bed bugs. Even worse, they didn't believe us that there were bed bugs and didn't want to give us the money back! horrible experience!!

This hostel was about a 10 min walk from the train station and surrounded by restaurants and supermarkets. The rooms were clean the washrooms were consistently kept up and everything was really well kept. The only complaint I had was that the grocery stores close by are closed on Sunday and when we asked the staff for help to find... More

This is your best bet if you are a budget traveler like me. Geneva is one of the most expensive place to visits in the world. This hostel has it all. The private rooms are totally adequate for getting a good night's rest. The bathrooms and showers are very well maintained. The common areas are comfortable. The staff is friendly... More

This hostel is located on one of Geneva's main streets, which means there are tram stops near and it is also close to the main train station. My room had a sink inside, which was very practical. Very spacious lockers. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. I stayed in a room right next to the stairs, but still it... More

This is one of the cheapest places to stay in Geneva, and it is over 80 USD per night. For that price, you get lame breakfast around the corner. The rooms are spartan, and the overall decor is sort of "penitentiary lite". You can hear pretty much anything going on anywhere in the building. If you book a single, it... More

This place is almost like a 4 star hotel. Super clean, everything works. Well maintained. The location is perfect. Close to many shops, restaurants and bars. It is also easy to get to on public transportation. It's not a party hostel. It's a little more quiet than some I have stayed in, but this was fine because there are plenty... More

This hostel is close to the main train station and a tram line, so the location is good and a free city travel pass is included. The hostel itself was clean enough, though the rooms were tiny. The kitchens are located on each floor (with lock boxes in the fridge for your food) and the wifi worked throughout the whole... More
