When choosing the hostel to stay in Geneva, my first concern was location and services. Geneva Hostel is well located, with transport nearby, breakfast is included in the room price, they give you a transport card for the dates you stay (it is common), you have the possibility to have dinner, or go out and eat and dring in the...

Great value for money. Easy access to all the local amenities and the lake. A good sized room for 4 with private toilet. Showering facilities available on each floor accessed by a key card. The other communal areas clean and contemporary. Staff friendly and helpful.Limited parking on site at 10Euro, would recommend not leaving it too late in the day... More

Lovely, friendly, fluent in English staff. Brilliant location just by Lake Geneva and 2 tram stops off from the centre. A few shops around including a Lidl (good cheap tourist stuff). Is in the red light district but just means it's a bit quieter in the day, so nothing really to that. Clean facilities, food was okay. All in all... More

I stayed there for 2 nights and it wasn't too bad, the beds were comfortable, the food was alright and the views were alright, the toilets made me feel liberated from society because of how filthy they were and I didn't touch the showers. The weather was beautiful and so were the surroundings. overall it was a good place to... More

I enjoyed my stay in the hostel. It was quiet at night, the bathrooms were clean, the beds were comfortable. The breakfast and evening meal were good. I didn't like not having access to a kitchen to prepare/keep own food, but other than that, I cannot fault anything!

Geneva Hostel is a very big hostel - many rooms and many guests every day. The rooms are comfortable but they may be a little stuffy in hot nights. The bathrooms were clean enough. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast included in the hostel rate is great.

Not much atmosphere going on and only two other people in my room - French lady and Spanish lady, therefore none of us could communicate. Bathrooms were nice and clean. Room far too hot though -...

Great for a short stay. Free Transportation card! Biggest plus was the transportation card that saved a lot og money and worrying about how to buy tickets.Asked how to get somewhere on the bus, but was just given a map and told to google it. The busses turned out to all take different routes due to construction, but the front... More
