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.

I spent two nights with friends at this hostel. The rooms and bathrooms and new and clean. You get a keycard to your room that also gives you access to a locker where you can store your valuables and luggage. Great breakfast for a hostel. The lobby is pretty nice, the kitchens are not that cool, though.

Very nice, clean, quiet, well located, safe and spacious lockers. Staff nice but a bit clumsy. The breakfast is good and included. People of all ages staying, there is a well equipped kitchen for snacks. Very good.

Clean, very good facilities, close enough to local amenities and the main center is a 5/10 minute walk in one direction, the lake the other. For what it is, it's perfectly acceptable and adequate. The hostel itself was actually a lot bigger than I was expecting. I stayed in a 6 person dorm style room on the 4th floor above... More

I had to stay in this hostel as I was traveling together with a group and for organizational purposes it was easier to stay with the group. However, they were 4 sleepless nights of noise outside and inside the room. Upon check-in you are can collect a duvet, mattress and pillow cover that you can change every three days. Luckily... More

My personal experience of this accommodation was fine, I stayed on level 6 in my own room, with en suite. As expected, the room was reasonably bare but this is a youth hostel, so this is fine. My room opened onto a communal balcony, and had amazing views out over the lake, looking out at sunrise was a memory I... More

The hostel itself is clean, the communal areas are nice, the breakfast is basic but does the job, the showers are hot... However it's very noisy at night. It is also quite hot in the rooms, we were on the 4th floor in April (can't imagine summer!) So had to open the windows.... Sounded like we were in a pub... More

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...
