It is a good hostel, staff is nice and is clean and beds are comfortable. I like the elevator/lift they have :). Well located too. They give a travel pass for free that you can you use in trams, bus, etc, etc. The only thing is that they do not provide breakfast

I stayed there for 2 nights in a female dorm. The room was fine, the lockers were big enough, you just had to have your padlock or borrow some at the reception. The reception wasn´t 24 hours. I guess that they were there only till around 10 PM so if you are planning to check in late it is deffinately... More

Me and my friend visited Geneva for 3 nights and stayed here. It is right near the main train station, really convenient to get to main attractions and really easy airport access. We stayed in a 4 bed room, the rooms have big lockers, but you need to take your own padlock with you to use them. There are plenty... More

Room was cleanish, few stains on one of the mattresses but nothing extreme. However, making your own bed when you arrive shattered is not fun.. Pretty standard for a hostel though, toilets were clean enough, the day lockers were good as our train wasn't until 1 but we had to check out at 10am.

Nice and clean hostel, friendly and helpful staff. Stayed in 3 bed dorm, a bit small, but that was expected. Good prices for Geneva, which is an expensive place! Located near shopping malls, restaurants and pubs.

Great location, easy way to find hostel. I was really surprised by the staff members, really nice and talkative, offer chocolate etc, bathroom was clean, you can lock yourself. Tram station is next to hostel, with few stops away from UNG, Jet dOr is few minutes of walking.. Maybe breakfast included would make it perfect, but still highly recommended!

Great central location. 5 min walk from the main train/bus/tram station (which is only about a 5 min train journey from the airport!) Stayed in a 2 bed room which was great for my friend and I. Comfy bunk beds with a sink and individual reading lights/charging points. Hairdryers in bathrooms, kitchens on each floor. I found the facilities very... More

My wife and I stayed here for a night on a recommendation. It felt a bit like staying in a hole in a wall, there was constant chatter and noise going on around the hostel and the bathrooms were dirty. Dissappointed to stay here and will probably never go here again.
