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

Liked: The hostel is right next to Geneve's main train station and in an area with nice restaurants and supermarket. They provide free transport cards for their guests and there are lots of trams and buses that will take you to the shopping area, the old city district or the sea side (lake really). The wi-fi works really well at this hostel and the common facilities are pretty decently looked after.

Disliked: The hostel is part of an old building and you can feel this inside the rooms. There is a funny smell to them and it isn't because they are not clean, but because they are oldish.

Liked: Great place, big bathrooms, comfortable

Disliked: Not as much information on where to see/visit during check-in; just handed maps but no real conversation about how to use the transport card, where to take buses, what to see, etc.

Liked: Clean and secure rooms with a fantastic location. Decent kitchen facilities and clean bathrooms.

Disliked: Rooms could get quite stuffy on a hot day. I struggled to use the chargers in the room too due to the way they were positioned.
