Not enough bathrooms No hand towels in bathrooms
I would've thought that for the price we were paying they would've fixed and maintained their bathrooms. Breakfast was a little limited particularly as I am lactose intolerant.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. the hostel is clean and very central.
The noise. From 23:00hrs onwards we could hear people chatting in the corridor and there did not appear to any attempt to be quiet. Also doors slamming ALL NIGT, yes all night the doors were slamming. The hostel seemed to lack "athmospher" however we were just there for one night so difficult to know.
Please note that you should to pay more money if you are not membership of this hostel.
location was great - near public transport & the lake, modern facility, Good breakfast included, Bicycle storage, comfortable beds
difficult to find car park
Very accommodating :) Very clean Nice facilities
Not overly lively Little expensive (though it is Switzerland) Plastic couches downstairs?
great location (2min from the lake) free transport ticket great breakfast nice and helpful staff fresh & clean blankets & covers not very expensive
La situació per visitar Geneve és excel.lent
The price was great for what you got. It was easy to access the lake and see many sights with in walking distance. The rooms were very comfortable as well.
Bathrooms were small, a little dirty and very hot and sticky.
great location, great value for money
room was very hot but if window was open it was noisy. Toilet seat and soap dispenser were broken in our private bathroom.
Location was good, walking distance 10 Min? from the main metro station less than 5 mins walk from lake Geneve. Value for Money !! Breakfast included
Thought there would have been a better bar to help meet others
The hostel is in good point - not far from main station nor the lake. The price as for the Switzerland is ok.
It could be a little more clean (although it was not bas) and have wifi in the whole hostel (it was only in lobby - although there was place in lobby to sit down and plug in the device which was nice).
Personal locker, clean shower room, breakfast, free wi-fi, inexpensive locker lental after chech- out time.
Price- but free wifi and free zone10 tickets killed the high price.
Excellent location right by the lake, clean, good breakfasts
The staff was rude and unhelpful. I wanted to do laundry but I had to wait over an hour before they would help me, and then it still cost a ridiculous CHF 13. Also the toilet paper ran out in the room and wasn't replaced for a day and half.
Good location, good price, modern building. Good breakfast. Overall, nice place to stay, but I was here just for a night, so I can't say much.
30 EUR for one night is a bit expensive for a hostel... But it's Switzerland...
Easy to find， 10 min walk to train station and 5 min to lake side
This hostel makes me feel like in prison! Keycard is needed to enter the lift and room， which is ok， but why do we need it going to tiolet and shower? This is annoying! Also， the restaurant is only opened in breadfast and dinner， no access to it in other time， which is quite different from other hostel i stayed so far. And the arrangement for breadfast is bad as well， u can only queue up and take the food in one direction and it is only for once， I see ppl came after 8am waited for 30min+ for their breadfast， other hostels always put the food in a more open area so that ppl can pick up their food more easily.
everything is perfect，the best youth hostel that I've lived in swiss
Everything is nice, but I really loved RFID locks everywhere :)
Very Long queue for Breakfast - over 20 mins
Easy to find. Friendly staff. Rooms quiet despite central location. Felt very safe and secure.
No kitchen facilities to even boil water.
A great location.
Toiletts were not clean at all, and there was no Toilett-paper. Messy Room-mates. 30 minutes line for breakfast.
the Youth Hostel Geneva is very clearn
Great location, safe lockers, good breakfast, clean and safe, thankfully no big parties or other disturbances in the middle of the night
WiFi was so slow that it is unusable, only 3 showers and 2 toilets for a whole floor with 18+ beds
