  • True hostel experience. Small room with bunk beds and do-it-yourself linens provided. Separate rooms across the hall with mixed-gender toilets and showers. Kitchenette available but not used by us. Laundry facility and lockers also available. Quite clean. A little noisy in the early evening, quiet by 10 pm. Fan worked well. Staff went above and beyond to be helpful.

  • Decent price for accommodation in Switzerland. Facilities were very clean. Staff was nice and helpful. However, there is really no atmosphere at all; it's just a place to sleep.

  • Very high standards for a hostel, everything is clean and staff if helpful. Great security, keycards everywhere and individual lockers in the room (bring a padlock). Perfect place for accommodation (a bit expensive but that's geneva) but not that great for meeting other people. There is one common room in the basement and one room next to the reception where they show a movie every night. Most people spent their time outside or in the rooms, few people used the common areas when i was there.

  • Friendly staff. Wonderful location close to Gare Cornavin and to the Lake. Despite the standard street noise which the hostel could not control (the Swiss energetically wash their sidewalks at dawn throughout the city...), the facility was actually quiet and my sleep was not disturbed. It's certainly plain--like dormitory living--but a good value given the enormous costs of hotels (and everything else) in Geneva.
