First Hostel Experience

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 8, 2011

We stayed in a private bunk bed room with shared bathroom facilities for two nights before heading to Chamonix.

City Hostel is a large hostel with a kitchen on every floor and plenty of common room space. We found the hostel to be clean, quiet and the service of the staff very good. Our room had safe, a basin which was very handy, cupboard space and one bunk. Shared bathroom was clean and never really busy. The kitchen proved to be very handy. For a small deposit you had your own locked cupboard and compartment in the fridge. We cooked most of our meals in the kitchen, saving a bit of money. There are also day lockers in the basement for free use, bring your own lock.

The hostel is a 10 minute walk from the central train station, 5 minute walk from the train station and restaurants. It’s in a fairly safe area although next time we will stay on the other side in the Old town part of Geneva.

City Hostel Geneva

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

Despite it being almost the only option in Geneva it is actually quite good. The rooms are clean and nice. There are quite a few different kitchens around the place so making your own food is quite easy. There are also numerous good showers and toilets. On the entrance floor there is a common area with a different movie shown every night. Downstairs there is another common room with sofas, satelite tv, internet and a fussball table. There are also laundry facilities in the basement.

This hostel has very friendly workers and a great atmosphere and a great price

Unique Quality: 5 mins from the railway station, central location, free kitchen facilities, 5 internet stations, tv room, book exchange, no curfew or lock out. This is me, all covered up. My friends thought I was silly because i sleep with my head under the covers, but my nose gets cold. O well

City Hostel Geneva

by written on September 7, 2002

Around 25 CHF or $21 CDN

Unique Quality: Very clean and safe (doors that lock behind you when you leave, therefore requiring a key each time you enter), television in the main room with a ton of chairs and tables, pop and beer vending machine, internet access (fairly reasonable), small used book library, lockers available, and a small souvenir gift shop in the office. I think there is a lockout in the afternoon, but it is not too much of a pain.

Directions: 2 Rue Ferrier
Geneva

To get to the hostel from the Gare Cornavin (main train station), walk out the main doors and turn left. Walk for about 5 minutes or so, until you see a photocopy store. Turn lef
