Great location - About a 15 minute walk to the train station with some eateries and grocery shops just around the corner. What's better is the 5 minute walk to the amazing scenic Lake Geneva. Great continental breakfast - You'll get a nice European breakfast consisting of yoghurt, bread, jams, cereals, ham/salami, fruits, milk, coffee, and tea. Poor wi-fi location... More

During my stay at this hostel, I was placed in a room that had a two year old child. I was with three other friends and we were very respectful towards the mother and child, even though the child cried the entire night. The mother however, proceeded to tell us to be quiet and to not keep entering the room... More

This hostel is very clean and well organised. The breakfast (included in the price) is very nice, plenty of food and quality ! Free Wifi at the living room. When we were there, there were only some young students so it's not the best place to make party. Moreover, it's not allowed to drink any alcohol in rooms. It's very... More

My First hostel experience and it was pretty good. Good location a few mins from the lake and maybe a 20 min walk (or 5 minute tram ride - the hostel will give you a free card for the city's public transport) to the city centre. Lockers are included and were spacious - would do it again!

This hostel was quite good, close to the train station and not too far from the center or other sights. It was safe and clean as well, showers were really spacious! Breakfast was ok. I would stay there again.

Not good hostel for the youth...seemed like a survival camp...some of the staff are harassing their guests and instead of trying to resolve the conflict they made it worst by shouting at the guests...I am reconsidering to file a legal suit

Didn't have many choices of hostel for Geneva, this was all we could really get. It was a pleasant stay. Large lockers for luggage and nice sized rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Wifi also good. Another bonus is the free transport card included with your stay. An enjoyable stay.
