The facilities quite new and good
The location, the breakfast
good to sleep, always feel cozy. In the case of travel geneva, you can get free transportation card(zone10). It will be useful. Don't buy a ticket while travelling.
towel rental cost
Had private room which was good. Although beds not full single size, only children's width for adults.
The self catering kitchen is small and poorly equipped with utensils. There is no can opener or tea spoons. It has only one hob plate. It doesn't have oven. The microwave turntable does not rotate so food unevenly cooked. No paper or cloth towels for drying pots and pans. Very disappointing in need. Only 1 star for this facility.
Good location, easy to find.
I didn't like that I didn't get the deposit for using towel. I gave the towel back and provided a receipt, but no money back.
The staff was gentle and the hostel is well located. The commom areas, the bedroom and the bathroom were clean. There is an individual lamp and an electrical plug for you bed. They have a really big locker for your luggage (I was able to store a 23kg suitcase in). The breakfast was very complete and the best that I ever saw at a hostel (coffe machines, hot water, milk, juices, bread, cereals, fruits, yogurt, jams...)
