Score from 176 reviews Very good
The staff was really great! And the beds and stuff were awesome! A little noisy at night but other than that it was fine!
The noise level at night and there was no wifi in my room, so that was lame.
Cooking is not allowed.
I like the simplicity of it. Everything you need is there. Hairdryer, locker,wide clean bathroom., clean room, nice lobby and location.
I did not like the usage of wifi. You have to go down at the lobby for access to wifi
price is cheap in geneve.
no tap inside the room. i stayed in the same kind of dorm like this. but they all have tap inside room.
I liked the use of free wifi and picnic area.
Other occupants do not observe cleanliness as signages are not enough.
A very clean hostel and kind staffs
Only one toilet each floor
Except for the location, free wifi and the breakfast, the rest of the experience, at least for me, was upsetting!
1 entire floor of at least 30+ persons in different rooms and just 1 WC and 2 showers (separate for boys) I assume the girls had the same arrangement- which meant so many of us were spending at least 20 - 30 minutes in the line outside the bathroom, waiting for our turn to use! This is frustrating, esp. when you are in a hurry to catch a train/flight or attend a meeting in Geneva. Obviously, I was late for the meeting because of this. Also the line for the breakfast at 08:30 Hrs was at least 10 - 15 metres long!! Another waste of time in waiting!! This, for me, is just bad management, and requires little effort from the admin to change these things. To top all this, the admin is oblivious to all of this inconveniences faced by the hostellers!They even charged 2 Swissfrancs for keeping the luggage after you are checked out!!
Dorms were noisy.
Location, free breakfast, wifi, tidyness
Hidden toilet. Same room as showers.
Quite far from subway
City transport card was really useful and valid for airport drive
No wifi in room. Only microwave in kicten. Some staff attitude not good,very pride.
The wifi is terrible, the breakfast is not so good comparing to other hostels in the country. The kitchen is too small to eat there and the other places to eat are far away from the kitchen.
Friendly staff, comfortable premises, enough space for luggage in lockers, and for everything in fact, rather good breakfast, good WiFi, clean picnic room where you can have a bite on your own, it's overall nice.
Only one small thing, easy to fix I guess. The taps in the bathroom don't always run hot water, and you've got to push them really hard.
It was very clean and you can only use your room card to open your locker. It was safe and the location was pretty good.
The room had a very strong smell, it smelt like someone died in there and the body was there for 20 days.
Polite staff (fluent in English), fair price for Switzerland, delicious breakfast.
WI-FI doesn't work on the 3rd floor. The system always dumped and it was impossible to open my locker.
Good location, 3 minutes walk from Geneva Lake, clean room, big enough
Way to expensive, poor breakfast, storage of luggage for the last day for extra charge, shower needs some renovations
Cheapest in Geneva, free travel card, really impressed with the free breakfast as well, and helpful staff. Also the secure lockers were really useful.
The communal areas have a bit of a cold atmosphere, very dim lighting. And no wifi in the rooms. And not being able to access the kitchen before 2pm.
Reception staff are very nice and helpful. The room is clean and The breakfast is simple, even though not many selections but worth the price.
The wifi signal is bad, can't recieve the signal in the room, need to go down to the lobby to use wifi.
Problem with toilet: Toilet needed to 2 days to be fixed.
They have big lockers suitable for all luggage you have.
Although it could be counted as the cheapest accommodation in Geneve, but it's still expensive to pay around 30 Euro for a bed & a simple breakfast per night in a hostel like this.
Clean rooms, fair breakfast, free wifi. What else do ya need? Also lockers are outside the room, so you don't need to disturb other guests while doing your stuff
It is a hostel, ya know, so you won't get a private room. But you can't expect anything better for this money in Geneve
Excellent lockers and toilets Quiet during sleeping hours Good breakfast included
