1/5 Terrible

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
The building is 10 mins away from the train station, it is mostly clean (but no soap in the showers/toilet on the first floor) and the check-in and out are fast. The lockers are large enough just for smaller „cabin-luggage“. The doors (to the rooms, lockers and toilets) all have NO (or not working) dampers. This means a really loud bang every time someone comes in the room, goes to the toilet or opens their lockers. It is a big hostel - ppl do that a lot. And in summer it is smouldering hot (no AC). It is in Pâquis, so the street outside is loud till late in the night (2-3 AM), which makes sleeping even harder.

Textbook example of how a hostel in 2022 should be
Affordable; nicely situated; modern locks and lockers; filling breakfast; bonus public transport card per day -- what more can one ask for? Geneva Hostel is a textbook example of how a hostel in 2022 should be. I look forward to coming back!
