I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed my time. Bathrooms and bedrooms are simple but clean; everything is keycard access, which is a good safety measure. Breakfast is the same thing every morning. It wasn't terrible, but I would've liked a little more variety and for it to last longer. The Wifi works best in the lobby; it can... More

Take No 15 or No 1 tram from main railway station - about 7 min walk from either stops (different roads to alight), hostel is opposite the local police station. Check-in is straight forward, if you need a transport map ask for it, travel card is issued to you after booking in - if room sharing take your bedding to... More

I stayed here in a fairly big group, for 3 days. The rooms were nice and clean and you got around 3 bunkbeds in a room. The view from our room was beautiful! The food wasn't brilliant, but for the price I can't really argue.

This hostel wasn't too far from the railway station, was near the lake, and was a great place to explore Geneva from. As a large hostel, there was no problem with hostel availability, the place was in fairly good maintenance, there was a 24 hour reception, and everything worked smoothly. However, this strength can also be a weakness. While staff... More

I stayed there for 3 nights. The Hostel is huge. There's a lift inside to all floors. Friendly staff. Nice free breakfast. Wifi signal is very bad in the rooms. Clean rooms and bathrooms. They give you a free transportation card around Geneva which is excellent! You travel around Geneva for free. A few minutes walk from the lake, Bains... More

The hostel was brilliantly located - the main train station being only a short walk or a bus ride away. The local buses went to most of the major attractions in Geneva and were really easy to use. Loved the fact I could travel free on them with my stay at the hostel! The hostel even provided a continental style... More

The hostel is in a quite area, easy to find. The technology is everywhere, smart cards for access to everywhere and to your safety locker.

Been there with a group... The hostel doesn't have any kind of air circulation system and during the night it was so hot that I went to sleep on my car... Terrible experience. The staff was great! Very helpful and nice! Is well placed. The breakfast was not the worst but very incomplete and to slow...

We just stayed one night here, but it was everything in order, great location and many choices for breakfast, they also give us a free ticket for public transport which it was really helpfull. I'll be back there on my next visit to Geneve.
