    I overall enjoyed my stay. I felt safe and everything was clean. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm that never had more than 3 people. I had dinner every night at the hostel and that was good aswell. The location was ok and we had free public transport so it was easy to explore the city I would stay here again.

    Textbook example of how a hostel in 2022 should be

    Affordable; nicely situated; modern locks and lockers; filling breakfast; bonus public transport card per day -- what more can one ask for? Geneva Hostel is a textbook example of how a hostel in 2022 should be. I look forward to coming back!

    Fantastic budget option in Geneva city centre

    The hostel is conveniently located, with bright, open communal areas, plenty of comfortable sofas to relax in, and electrical points...all with free WiFi! The dormitory style bedrooms are clean, comfortable with personal lights and bedding supplied by reception. Bathrooms neary are spotlessly clean. Access to all private areas is by touch card. There is a good breakfast included with plenty of variety.

  • 6.0.Good

    优点: 1. 性价比高 2. 交通还算方便,15路电车附近。 缺点: 1. 饮用的热水非常坑,在非早餐时间段,咖啡机可以提供热水,但2chf只提供一小杯热水,搞不懂热水和咖啡为什么是一个价格。 2. 淋雨喷头是不可摘下来那种 3. 早餐没有鸡蛋。

    Great experience. Very good service, clean rooms and amenities, plus a great location. Masks are awful but understand they are government mandated and not the properties choice.
