Get to know Geneva (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Geneva.

Geneva is one of the world's most global cities. Home to the United Nations and the Red Cross, Geneva is a great place to take in unique international culture. The city is, however, a financial mecca, and is not surprisingly ranked the fourth most expensive city in the world. Not only will travelers spend loads on food, transportation, and souvenirs, but even Geneva hostels can also be quite costly.

There are very few hostels in Geneva and they are usually priced on the high end. These hostels are primarily located in what's called the Rive Droite. Geneva surrounds the beautiful Lake Geneva and borders the Rhone River, providing the entire city with gorgeous views of the water. The Rive Droite (right bank) is the newest part of the city located to the north of Lake Geneva. This part of the city is connected over the Rhone River by several bridges making it easy to access the Old Town on the left bank, known as the Rive Gauche. Public transportation is very convenient in this highly-modernized metropolis, and can easily get you within walking distance of most of the sights. However, Geneva is a great walking city, especially the Old Town, so save your money for fondue and forget the tram.

Can't miss attractions include Cathedral St. Pierre, and it's amazing archaeological crypt, Parc des Bastions, the Jet d'eau, and the Museum of the International Red Cross. Geneva is also a great place to enjoy the water. The city has a number of beaches and many boat tours offering the most remarkable views of Geneva, the lake, and the surrounding Alps.
