Enjoyed our 3 night tourist break in Geneva in a twin room with shared facilities.
The hostel was very clean, well looked after, the staff were helpful, and the facilities were good.
Geneva isn't cheap but this hostel was centrally located just 5 minutes from the main train station and overall was (for Geneva) good for the money.
I would happily stay there again.
Some of the facilities:
Room: sink, 2 hand towels each, small soap and shower gel, good black out shutters, electronic key each.
Each shared kitchen (one each floor): kettle, toaster, microwave, two sinks, 4 electic rings, two fridges (with lockable compartments), lockable cupboards. When we were there they were kept clean. Maybe could do with more cups, glasses, utensils (especially a bread knife). Just ask reception for a key for the fridge and locker (CHF 10 refundable deposit).
Toilets/Showers: It was full when we were there but always plenty of toilets, and showers.
Other facilities: DVD each evening at 8pm, free table football, and small kids play area in basement, free wifi throughout the hostel.
Laundry (wash/dry/iron), and free luggage locker (use own lock, or get one from reception for refundable CHF 10 deposit).
When staying at the hostel they give you a free Geneva transport pass (bus, tram, train to airport, lake water taxis).
Nearby supermarkets: Lidl and Coop 50m away (not open late evenings or Sunday), Migros (at train station) open later and Sundays.
Overall for what it is (hostel in central and expensive Geneva) I would almost give it 5 out of 5 ... but I wanted a bread knife!
