Liked: What I wanted: One of the cheapest options in Geneva centre which is clean and calm at night. What I got: is exactly that. The place is clean and not loud ( I came here for a job interview and therefore wanted to have a good sleep).

Disliked: Although this is one of the cheapest options in Geneva. It is still ridiculous to pay 80 Euro for a room without bathroom and toilet. The single room was about 10 square meters.

Liked: The friendliness, knowledge, and great suggestions of the staff were what really took this place above and beyond. The welcome email we received before telling us directions from the airport using the free transportation were super helpful. The also have great quality hostel beds, the solid wood type instead of the shaky metal kind. The bathrooms and bedrooms were very clean, and the location is an easy walking distance from the Old Town, a short tram ride from the UN and the cutesy suburb of Carouge.

Disliked: In terms of hostels, it was great. That being said it was very expensive due to the nature of Genena/Switzerland as a whole.

Liked: Bought souvenir at cheaper rate. Enough place to move about Laundry, ironing room and baggage storage room well maintained. A lot of privacy within this hostel. Near to main railway station. Near to convenience shops

Disliked: On day of my stay, I noticed someone using the kettle to boil milk but very unfortunate this user never washed clean the kettle. Kettle is supposed to boil water and not boil milk or eggs or make instant noodles.
