I recently stayed here for three nights and was very pleasantly surprised with the whole state of affairs. The hostel is very clean, with bathrooms, common areas and bed-sheets maintained to a good degree of hygiene. The place is also in an excellent location; with public transport links nearby as well as a pub. This means that it would be... More

I stayed here for 3 nights as one of the staff involved in a college visit to CERN. Having experienced lots of Scottish youth hostels in the 70"s this is luxurious in comparison! The rooms were clean and comfortable, the food was plentiful, tasty and pretty healthy! The staff were courteous and helpful throughout and our students thoroughly enjoyed their... More

Only stayed for one night here. It was relatively clean. All the staff that I talked to were helpful and polite. It is conveniently located near the train station and close to a small sports bar. I would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Well, I stayed there for a couple of nights and in my last night I get robbed for two Moroccan girls who were doing a lot of noise since they were arrived in the middle of the night.

Stayed here during my two day solo trip to geneva. It's kinda ideal place if you are looking to meet new people. One also gets complimentary breakfast. Rooms and bathroom region was quite clean. I surely recommend this place for staying in Geneva. P.S. This place is really close to Lake.

So, I don't often stay in hostels and can say that they are really not for me! But, as hostels go this one is OK/average. Shared a 6-bed female dorm with young girls who didn't know proper etiquette for room-sharing... not the operators fault but these are the things that happen in shared spaces! Service was OK except that when... More

I have never stayed at a youth hostel before. And since this was a part of a trip organised by my college, I could not decide on where to stay. I didn't know what to expect when I first arrived at our room, I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and simplicity of the room. I was wearing shorts for... More

I won't say anything about the prices, as the whole country itself is ridiculously expensive... But it would be great if they would offer a better kitchen in order to save some money in lunch/dinner cooking yourself The place is nice, good conditions and great WiFi... And great breakfast is included!!

Part of a large student group this Hostel was perfect for our needs. Clean, good location and the staff were helpful. 10 minute walk from the train station in Geneva and 2 minutes from the Lake itself. Breakfast was a continental style, with a limited choice but OK for a few days. Free WIFI included as well. Rooms are warm... More
