We stayed here back in Sep 2008 for a night. It was pretty easy to find this place and location was close to the Main railway station too. We took a dorm with 2 bed and shared bathroom. Room was compact and since we had to leave very early in the morning, so did not have problem with the availability...

Only stayed 1 night, there were 2 of us in a 3 bed room. The 3rd bed was taken by someone else but it had enough room once bags were put away in lockers. Showers and toilets were clean and easy to use. If you dont take your own towel you'll be given a very small one but can purchase/deposit...

Nothing too surprising. Centrally located but in an uninteresting area. Bed was comfortable, room was fairly small for 3 persons. Lockers provided in the room were large enough to fit my large suitcase and backpack. Bathroom and kitchen are what you would expect from a hostel. Only thing missing was a gathering spot for socializing (i.e. bar/game room/tv room). There...

A really good hostel with a nice chilled out vibe thanks to the staff. It is clean and comfortable and z free travel pass for all public transport saved me walking round in the rain all day. Geneva itself as a city was a bit of a let down to look around there wasn't the lively atmosphere you get in...

This was the cheapest hostel I could find and it did not disappoint! The instructions on how to get there were clear and concise, the hostel itself it right next to the central train/bus/tram stops and station. Once we arrived we were greeted by a lady with excellent english and she pointed out way to get around the city. We...

I stayed at the City Hostel for three nights in a budget single room and was very impressed with the standard. The room was clean and, though a little cramped at the doorway, surprisingly spacious.The kitchen was excellent, with a kettle, stove and microwave. I was pleasantly surprised by the showers, which had proper ceramic bases and glass screens, rather...

Stayed there with 5 friends - we got 2 rooms, each with 3 beds. The rooms are quite small, however all we needed is just a place to put our heads down in the end of the day, and for that purpose this place is more than enough. The shower and toilet are outside the room, but they were very...
