Geneva Hostel was amazing. I don't understand some of the reviews. The bad ones are probably from people who had their first Hostel experience here. Keep in mind that Hostels are budget accommodations so there is a limitation to comfort that you can expect. Quite frankly this is a very comfortable hostel. The breakfast was amazing, (you won't find a... More

The hostel was very nice! The staff were helpful and accommodating. My only issues were that the first night the wifi was complete crap, and the rooms had NO air conditioning and it was EXTREMELY hot for Geneva. But it was an overall pleasurable experience!

We were a group of 9 staying in a room for 12. We have 3 other females sharing our room. They have big lockers in the room. The lockers use the room key card to access them. I had to go to the front desk 4 different times to straighten out the key cards to get access to all of... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in July. Lady at reception on arrival was very pleasant. Shame that there was no air conditioner in the room as it was 30c outside and impossible to sleep. Also as it was girls only room we wished there was a mirror. Very clean. Breakfast very basic but everywhere is like this.

The Hostel is clean and reasonably priced but incredibly noisy because of rude and inconsiderate school groups running around and shouting till past midnight. Good for school groups, bad for families or anyone who wants a decent night's sleep.

Stayed here one night with a group. I was impressed with the cleanliness and how safe it felt. I definitely recommend it. But avoid the breakfast, it's awful! Go to a nearby bakery and get croissants; much better.

The rooms were decent size with three bunk beds in each. We were lucky enough to have a room with a window that opened wide leading to a fire escape. The common room was lovely with extremely comfy chairs and vending machines with recognisable food and drinks. The breakfast we had access to was familiar and yummy. Overall it was... More
