Very easy to find and stay at. Was perfect for my one night! Secure and friendly. Never felt unsafe.

Very clean hostel, showers spotless, kitchen facilities appreciated, roomy dorms, great staff! Location is a little far from Vieux Lyon but 10-15 min from Valmy metro (can go anywhere on metro system). Mostly younger guests, but was very comfortable for an older person like me. Reliable, classic hostel experience.

My second time here, as Lyon is becoming a regular overnight stop for my road trips to the south. Good, clean hostel, good facilities. Not in the downtown area but, city center and historic stuff within 15-30 minuts walking distance along the riverside, so quite a nice walk.

Really nice to stay in this hostel! All was really great - they prepare really good and cheap food. The internet connection needs upgrading though. I will go back!

breakfast included, pretty good value for money. not close to metro, need to walk for about 10-15min. It's the only hostel I have been that has no key for the room, not sure about the security,but has locker in room. stuffs are quite nice and relax. The exhaust fan in the shower room doesn't work, so the room got very humid. The dorm room is a bit cold and don't understand why they only private a paper thin blanket, Couldn't sleep well and almost catch a cold.

Mathieu was really nice and gave methe best advices to know the city. Too bad i only stayed one day because Lyon is amazing. But maybe the breakfast can improve a little bit... Definitely a nice place to stay :)

Very hard to find (but i arrived at night with poor directions) but really really great place. one of the best hostels I've stayed in (I've stayed in around 10 in europe) Very very clean facilities and bes space, each bed has own light, lockers available in the room, very nice and social common room with cheap bar and food as well as an excellent breakfast. wifi only worked in the common room, but i actually appreciated this as it got me out of my room!

Cool hostel, plenty of people hanging out in the common room. Only downsides are that the rooms don't lock and there's only two bathrooms stalls. Two blocks (ish) from nearest metro line, free breakfast is bread and cornflakes, other dishes are in the 1-3 euro range. Atmosphere is good, try the "Adios M*f*er."

The staff were very nice and helpful. The hostel was clean, a bit out of the way but still very accessible. They need some better frying pans but other than that I had a very nice stay.

Really lovely hostel. One of my favourites, just a short stroll to the nearest metro station, easy to find and the guys running it were brilliant! Would recommend this place to everyone!
