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...

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...

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...

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.

Checked in to a room with dirt and hair everywhere next to dirty bathrooms with sick in the sink - very hot in the summer ! It is in an OK location but definitely not worth the money. The lockers are outside of the rooms and your need your key for everything which is nice for security. The staff are...
