Though it's a little out of the way, Cool & Bed makes up for it with its fun atmosphere and general liveliness. They have nice music playing in the mornings and free all-you-can eat breakfast (usually cereal and milk, bread and jam, yogurt, and the likes). The building is colorful and comfortable, the staff is friendly, cleanly, and helpful, and everything you need to exist really can be found either at the hostel or nearby.

I spent just one evening at Cool & Bed but enjoyed it a lot. Greeted by Pierre I immediately fealt at ease. A very relaxed, warm atmosphere thanks to the staff and the hostel itself. A great place to stay!

Location is not the best, but rooms were ok, also beds. Wide rooms. Staff is ok, but sometimes music in hall is too loud, by some member staff. Change the bread knife, it cuts nothing!!:)) Very clean.

Staff were great at this hostel! I was visiting Lyon at a very slow time so there weren't a lot of people staying at the hostel to make friends with, but there is a nice lounge so I imagine at other times it might be more social. Loved that they will do your laundry for you for €5! The location is a bit out of the way but not terrible.

First night it was too cold, but they solved it for the second one :) Everything was clean, there was no noise and the breackfast was very good. A bit far from the city center by foot.

Amazing staff. Very friendly people and the atmosphere is bound to make you feel at home. Their home made dinner is yum! Facilities are fine. The kitchen is big with sufficient cutlery so for those who want to cook can do so comfortably. One can walk to Vieux LYON and the walk overseeing the Saone river is brilliant. Bus stop is opposite the hostel and departmental stores are 5 mins by walk.

The kitchen was lacking. Could use some more cutting boards, more knives, lids for pots, just to name a few things. A "free food" section for people to put their unwanted/extra items in is always nice and you can have salt/pepper/oil/tea there as well for everyone's use. Staff were all friendly, polite and helpful. Having maps available at reception would also be a nice touch.

We really enjoyed our stay at Cool&Bed, everyone was nice and the interior design was great. The only negative point was that the night staff that let us out early on Sunday morning was a bit rude.

Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere was very laid back. I didn't feel at all like my stuff would be stolen or anything like that. Had a lovely meal with the rest of the guests that was really great value for money and also very tasty! Yes I recommend it.

I really liked this place a lot until I went into the larger bathroom and saw the ceiling was covered in black mold. That grossed me out... The staff were great! The atmosphere was great! The location was at least two buses from anything which was annoying but not a deal breaker. I will say it was kind of disconcerting for me as a single female traveler to know that anyone could walk into my room at any time. All that being said, I would definitely stay here again!!
