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!

The friendly staff really stands out. We stayed over two weeks. Seeing the lake from the balcony was the highlight. We cooked meals in picnic area and met lots of people from around the world. If you are looking for a clean cheap accommodation in Geneva with a hearty meal, this us the place😊.
