Stayed here for 2 weeks with two friends while we attended a student conference in Geneva. The 3 of us stayed in a very spacious studio apartment in Building A with 3 beds, a full kitchen (oven, stove, fridge, freezer, sink), and private bathroom (shower, toilet, sink). Wifi worked just fine. Linens, towels, and toilet paper are provided. We had... More

I went to Geneve for a one week summer school and the organizing committee advised us to get accommodation in this place. I stayed in the building A, which is the main building with the main reception. On the first sight the place does not look too appealing. The building looks quite old (I guess built in 70's or 80's)... More

- The bathrooms are shared and are disgusting, and they don't put soap at the bathroom sink. Staff members RANDOMLY enter your room without permission. - The rooms are the size of a walk-in closet. - The bed was broken when I arrived. It squeeks and it collapsed under me while I was asleep (I weigh 150lbs/70 kilos), I put... More

I stayed in a single room for 3 weeks and it was worth the money. everything is expensive in geneve, so you cannot expect a cheap price, but this dormitory is definitely worth considering. there are 3 buildings and i stayed in building C. there is a lift to each level so no worries about heavy luggage. rooms are spacious...

The Cité consists of three buildings where the tallest is about 13 floors. I stayed in building C so therefore I can only speak of the quality from this building. My room was on the 6th floor (yes there are elevators) and therefore I head a really great view to the Salève mountain from the common room/kitchen. My room was... More

Pros: Cheep(but at the same prices there are other more central places), basic and well connected with the center of Geneva by bus. There are kitchens, refrigerators...The view is wonderful from some rooms(from mine, by example:))) Cons: rather destroyed....the door of the room was cracked, as well as the sink. The WC is on the hall and usually crowded in... More

Cite Universitaire is a student dormitory that rents out some rooms during the school breaks. It is not a hotel or hostel as such. It is friendly, safe, clean, and cheap (for Geneve). The bathrooms and showers are communal. Some of the rooms have fabulous views of the Saleve mountain. There is a communal kitchen on each floor. There is... More

The standard of dormitory accommodation was dreadful, a corridor underground with 4 dorm rooms, ranging in size from 8 to 18 people. We stayed in dorm rooms with a group of 35 students and occupied 3 of these 4 dorm rooms. The previous year, we stayed at the youth hostel, but decided to stay further out of town this year....
