Liked: Much better than expected! The people were lovely and the apartment was beautiful. Very close to the main station in Geneva.

Disliked: I had to wait half an hour after "opening hours" began before anyone came to the office. The WiFi wasn't working properly but that wasn't their fault. The walls are paper thin so I couldn't sleep at all

Liked: It was very clean and fresh. The guy on the Reception was very helpful and the maps and info they give you is very helpful. Free travel card also excellent! Easy walking distance from the train station. Well equipped kitchen facilities.

Disliked: It was super clean, orderly, safe and tidy but just lacked atmosphere I dont really know why I think it just could be Geneva is not really a backpackers place and more of a stopover so no atmosphere required.
