Excellent staff, very helpful and friendly. The Cool and Bed was very clean and I enjoyed the atmosphere, where you could talk to people or keep to yourself, depending on your desires and needs at each time. Limited bathroom facilities, but not poor. Biggest draw back was location, a 25 minute walk from the main city was not ideal. Fairly close to Old Lyon, however, which would be great if seeing that was your interest.

Really enjoyed my stay here. The staff were very friendly (they all introduce themselves by telling you their name and shaking your hand, a rear thing nowadays) All round clean and tidy hostel with a basic free breakfast in the morning. Would definitely stay here again.

The Staff was really nice, sadly, a bit, as I would have liked to talk more French, all the people were able to communicate in English very well (normally this would be a big plus) The showers were fine, however a curtain would be nice to keep the place where the clothes are dry.

The hostel itself is nice but it is very far away from the center,

Good value for money for what I got. Everyone that I met was really helpful and welcoming. However the showers felt like those at a swimming baths and are quite tiny. NOTE: you have to keep pushing the button for the water to come out, which is luke warm. Also remember to bring your own lock as the doors have no locks on them so anybody can just walk in.

Of course it was exciting beëing at Lyon for the competition WMA-masters. Many athletes where present in the hostel , also others who were fantastic to me. I really liked the atmosphere during that short week. Jacques B.

The receptionists were always very helpful and friendly! They also seemed to know the area very well. For instance, I asked Pierre where to buy graffiti and legally use it. He was able to provide me with accurate information and further tips. This is what tourists look for often: out of the ordinary spots to go to and things to do. Anyways, great staff! The donation bin provided for clothing was very useful... my luggage was becoming too small for my travels.

I had a nice stay : the room was quiet and the bathroom clean. The breakfast is included and has fresh bread ! Security isn't so great because the door of the building is open to anyone and so are the rooms but there are lockers in the room so it's fine.

It is a very nice hostel with a friendly and helpful staff. Room was very clean and had lockers inside which is nice, sheets were clean as well. Wifi worked everywhere and that's always a plus. In general is a very good place to stay.

Very laid-back place, with spacious rooms in a quiet neighborhood. Kitchen is complete with everything you need to cook and store food. The dinner organized by the staff was an awesome addition to the experience as well. Highly recommended!

Great place to stay if you intend to visit Lyon. The hostel is 20 min walking far from to the city centre. There is a bar in the lounge and Mateo makes delicious hamburgers with nice cheeses.yummy.

I absolutely loved it at cool and bed. It's run by a great group of people, and everyone there was fantastic. Ended up meeting some really cool fellow travelers, and really getting to have some fun on the town.

Only stayed for one night but wish we could have stayed longer. Hostel was lovely and was buzzing, made friends in only a few hours. AND after arriving 11pm they were still serving food to feed the hungry travellers. Great facilities, (substantial) breakfast included and staff were lovely. Can't wait to come back and stay properly
