Fabulous hostel, very clean and with a relaxing air. The staff were a little cold at first but were helpful. Breakfast is hearty and a great sport to step out exploring Geneva on foot.

While sleeping in my bed, a few men came to sleep. It was very noisy. Then police arrived for immergency. I had a bad experience not sleeping well just before leaving Genevia.

Nightlife & Entertainment tip

Geneva is pretty boring at night. :/ However, the Paquis district is where there are a lot of bars.

Attraction tip

There's a lift that will take you to the top of the hill just behind the city. It's worth the 10 francs for the view.
