Only a few steps from the lake only. It offers an extraordinary view on it, its boats and infinite nuances.

The hostel is about 1 km from the city center. Idyllic location with its parks, it also shows a wonderful view on the Mont Blanc. The old town is easily accessible, just like museums and art galleries.

The Geneva hostel association was created in 1932 to respond to the high demand of young traveler's. It all started in a little apartment on "rue du Soleil Levant"; then, it was moved to a building of the "Union Chrétiennes". The demand kept on growing, so it was once again moved to a school building. With a great concern for guests, the association had to find new and modern installations for the ever moving backpackers. A more adapted building had to be created. With great effort the association had talks with city's management a new building was found.
