Not impressed
This hostel is, indeed, very strange. I stayed only one night, but I got enough of a feel for it to say that I would not stay here again. Reception didn't seem to have anyone staffing it very often, the wi-fi was inconsistent and weak, and the amenities were lacking in luster. Overall, incredibly overpriced; although, this is Geneva so cheaper options possibly do not exist.

A very strange place.
Very unprofessional, I acknowledge that it's a new gig but almost as if owners have never stayed in hostels themselves. Note, RECEPTION ONLY OPEN FROM 2-9PM. Someone who arrived later had to organise getting in and his own bed and everything with other guests, the owner just giving phone directions. Was made to wait with no explanation of acknowledgement if my presence in their 'office', an almost school principal type environment, while instead of organising my check-in, talked with random guy and showed him jokes on his phone. From talking to other building occupants seems to be a guy renting out his apartments illegally, so no free transport card as is regular in most if not all of Switzerland and no passport checks. No offer of maps or recommendations of sights, although a lot more helpful to the young pretty girls. Amenities are fine, very clean but locks inside bathrooms aren't great and not enough for number of guests. Incredibly bad soundproofing if you need quiet for sleep. Good building code system though, convenient. A long term stay kind of place, not party hostel at all. Lounge room full of silent people watching sport. Overall, incredibly bad atmosphere and staff are irritating but absent after checking in, and facilities are fine and amazing location if that's all you need.
