Liked: Very friendly and helpful staff! Felt a little more like a hotel rather than a hostel but would highly recommend the place to anyone in Geneva! Super short walk to train station and Lake Geneva. Grocery store and lots of restaurants around the corner.

Disliked: Many older guests - not just young students/travelers.

Liked: Reception staff were very helpful. Rooms were clean as were the toilet and shower facilities. There is a good boulangerie/patisserie around the corner on the traffic lights of Rue de Lausanne + a Lidl just along the street. It is less than a 10 minute walk to the station. Lots of restaurants around the hostel + Lord Jim pub close by. Excellent location. Able to leave baggage in a locker once checked out of the hostel. CAn highly recommend for a school group or for individuals.

Disliked: Nothing negative
