Overall a very good experience. Given the price, it is hard to beat. Ideal central location, convenient public transportation when arriving from the airport. Awaiting you: - free WIFI in the lobby & working desks with power sockets - drinks & snack distributors - possibility to drop off your luggage if arriving before check-in time - easy check-in process -...

The Geneva Youth Hostel, AUBERGE DE JEUNESSE, is a wonderful modern hostel in the heart of Geneva. It is a 10 minute walk from the main train station, and there is street signage for the hostel. Upon arrival, I was greeted by a wonderful open lobby and common space in a modern building that appears to be designed to be... More

I spent a Saturday night in August 2014. This hostel was comfortable, and clean. The staff was very helpfull. Included breakfast was good, but I had to wait 30 min for it. Rush hour :) Auberge de Jeunesse is a good place to stay.

This place is lovely, modern and clean. My cousin and i stayed in a twin room with a view over the lake. It was close to all the attractions and the centre of Geneva (the free transport pass making the deal even more sweet) However, there are a few things that I didnt enjoy. Firstly, we got back from long... More

We arrived at this hostel late at night, (around 11pm) there were groups of people outside and I thought "oh it must be a very social hostel", when we went inside there was a huge line of people waiting to be checked in, and I then realised the people outside we're waiting to be checked in too. The staff were... More

Been coming here for years and it really has gone downhill. In my room gone are the shelves and power sockets next to the beds that used to make all the difference. There is nowhere to put anything at night now- watch, water bottle, phone. Why is this? Never used to be like that! Had to wait in a chaotic... More

Good price for Geneva. Fairly good breakfast. Showers and toilets were clean. Pretty close to tramway station. Helpful receptionists. Free wifi with good signal in rooms. I would stay there again if I go to Geneva.

It's not an amazing hostel but it gets the job done. The bedrooms were very clean and I liked that the lockers opened with the same key card as your room. I would have preferred that the lockers were inside the room though, instead of outside in the hallway (for an added level of security). The included breakfast was good.... More

35 CHF a night in a spacious 6-bed dorm, but there is an additional charge of 6 CHF per night if you aren't a Hostelling International member. I only stayed one night, but the extra fee seems a tad excessive if you are staying multiple nights. It is located conveniently near the train station (10min walk or 2 stops by... More

Upon my arrival, I was charged additional 12 chef that I never heard of. Showers are not really very pleasant and comfortable. Rooms are cleaned but only the floors. Breakfast is ok. Wifi works weirdly. Anyway, still the cheapest place to sleep in Geneva. Good for the money you pay.
