Upon arrival we were handed a bed set consisting of a very scratchy sheet and linen covers, however the beds themselves were ok, adequate for a short stay. Lockers provided were very secure and large, whilst the bathroom was also of acceptable cleanliness, if lacking reliable hot water. Breakfast was acceptable but with a limited choice, however this is free... More

Location: a bit of a walk through a seedy part of town to get the public transport needed to get downtown. As its too far to stroll downtown. Not much in the area except hot food bars, gambling shops, and shady looking characters. Would defiantly not recommend this part of town, we felt very unforgettable, and a little concerned for...

Very close to the lake, which is beautiful, but a little bit far from the old town, the hostel gives you a transportation card to use the tram during your stay though. Everything was very clean and well organized and the breakfast was quite good too.

Massive modern hostel located a couple of tram stops from the main station and a short walk from the lakeside. Great lockers, which are easy to use and provide plenty of space. Rooms are adequately sized and no more for 6 smallish modern bunk beds and all the facilities worked well. Popular with large youth groups when I was there,... More

It's an enormous, spartan hostel two streets up from the lake. There's no friendly welcome and no communal area - you're simply handed your keycard and told to pick up linens and go make your bed in whichever cell block you've been assigned. It reminds me of a cross between a prison and swimming pool changing rooms. Worth mentioning at... More

The hostel is a few streets away from other major hotels by the lake. I liked the keycard access which allows access into room area, your (very big) locker and bathroom. The modern elevators are also most welcome. The tram stop is around 5 minutes walk from the hostel entrance, and tram 15 brings you to the hostel from Cornavin... More

Some friends and I stayed here the first few days of December and I was really impressed with the hostel. It was clean and the rooms were comfortable. I was worried beforehand about where to keep valuables, but everyone is given their own lockers that is only opened with an electronic key and I felt my belongings were safe to... More

On our europe trip we stayed here for 2 nights on the 7th and 8th nov. Very safe apartments. We got a room with terrace and we're very happy. Breakfast was awesome especially peach yoghurt. Clean and very close to the tram station. Staff people were most helpful.

The youth hostel in Geneva was undergoing renovation works at the time in which we stayed however it was clear to see how nice it was going to look once completed. The check in process was clean enough with the reception staff speaking good English. The rooms were big enough to fit the specified number of people and had a... More

This was my first time staying in a youth hostel and I was very impressed with this hostel. The staff are incredibly helpful, the room was comfortable, the food was nice and the building was kept very clean. The reason for 4 stars is simply that it was quite noisy due to the doors and the lockers (especially the lockers!)... More
