The proximity to Lake Geneva, easy bus transport to the city centre, good breakfast which is included in the price
Isn't central, not a lot going on at night apart from lots of people playing on their phones in the wifi area, rooms are pretty institutional but for the price they're pretty good
Bad breakfast (e.g. no egg, or warm food) No TV or Wifi in the room They did not change the towels and did not clean the room during our 4 days staying.
The location, it's calm & lovely
The rooms has no wide windows, very dark & can't see any view, very poor no services in it as expected, no towels, no access to TV unless u pay, my rate is 3.
Lovely youth hostel, extremely well placed for a visit to the Roman site of Lousonna.
Too noisy at night even beds are not comfortable
breakfast helpful stuff
no wifi inside rooms weak wifi outside rooms at crowded times
It has two doors need to me scan before getting in the room and bathrooms.
The first door was unfunctionable from the first night until the day we leaved. A lot of people (not from the rooms beside us) went in bathrooms and toilets. We can share toilets with others but they must make sure after they used is clean. Those man after shaving their beard and leave it on washbasins without cleaning it. It is so disgusting and we forced to clean ourselves before we using it.
Some Signs to find the YH would be helpful
Clean and breakfast included
Too far out although on easy bus route. Not an attractive place to stay. Very grey!
The staff is always ready to help. Nice place near the lake(with 10 mins walk), right next to a museum.
Too far away from the city center, extra membership fee.
Large room, decent breakfast, friendly staff, close to lake.
No wifi in the room (only in public areas), need to take bus + metro to reach from train station / city center.
staff good breakfast nice location cheap
snoring roomate no Wi-Fi in rooms
The staff is nice and the hotel is near a bus station. There are quite a number of young back-packers selecting this hotel. The breakfast is good.
It seems not quite clean, and the staff did not clean our room during our stay. The hotel is around 20 minutes far away from the train station, and it cost us CHF 20 by taxi to reach the station.
Location near a large lakefront park is excellent. Free bus and metro pass makes up for lack of closeness to city services and sightseeing.
1. Bathroom floors often had lots of water. Probably guests don't shower properly. Needs: doors (not curtains) in shower areas and/ or more floor drains. 2. Arriving in Switzerland without francs makes bus travel a challenge.
the architecture is nice
a little bit far from the center, the bed is not so comfortable, and there is no locker in the room
The staff are very helpful and breakfast is great
Have to pay for parking.
Very clean. Amazing shower pressure :) Breakfast included. Great coffee :) very close to the lake (few minutes walk).
Lack of wifi in the rooms (works in main areas).
I liked everything. the location was just perfect...Just a few minutes away to the train station, lake, restaurants etc...Loved it!
The check out time was not conducive for me....
Excellent breakfast. Friendly staff.
Not working showers on the first floor. No showers in rooms. Very little variety of products to buy in the hostel. No shops around the hostel
Very peaceful atmosphere. Great breakfast. Charming helpful staff. Bike hire. Very near to the lake.
It's a short bus ride and a short metro ride from the centre but makes up for it by being a hop skip and jump to the lake and some beautiful parkland.
The breakfast was included and was fine. You have to pay an additional club membership fee, but as a compensation you get "for free" a public transport card for the time of your stay. Parking. Close to a lake park (although this park area is not very attractive and had a bad swamp smell).
The interior is depressing with barebone grey cement walls. There is no bathroom in the rooms. The shared bathrooms are not well isolated from one another and share the same water basin, which results in dirty water from neighbour cabins flowing into your cabin and over your feet. Not very hygienic, the least to say! You can rent a towel from the reception, but they had no soap available. There was no sheet for the bed blanket which was both uncomfortable and unhygienic (the blanket didn't seem to be washed recently). There was no net on the windows to prevent from insects and we had huge musquitoes flying into the room. Overall, I think the place is bearable but absolutely not worth the money for what you get.
Clean and comfortable room. Close to the metro and bus line.
WiFi available only in the lobby.
