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.

Had a reasonably good stay, the place is very nice however the atmosphere suffers because there is so many people. Means it's hard to get to know anyone and the homely feel is reduced. Overall good though.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, with great recommendations about restaurants and things to do around the city. Everything was clean. There's a bus stop right out the door and a metro station just a couple blocks away. The room was nice and warm and the breakfast was great! Would absolutely love to come back and most definitely recommend.

Very good hostel, really nice and helpful staff, it has a very good environment and it let you meet people, and also very comfortable rooms. The toilets and showers were the best (besides the staff!!!!)

This place was super chill and it was very easy to either meet people and party or just be by yourself. We did the former obviously and absolutely loved the crowd that was living there and the staff. Also, I highly recommend their drink called 'Adios'. It's the perfect way to start/end/forget a night :)

cool & bed? more like COLD and bed. The rooms were FREEZING!!! The fact that there were no locks on the doors didn't bother me as much as the fact that I couldnt fall asleep because I was so cold. It was also annoying that the bathroom/shower was on the complete opposite side of the floor. Breakfast left MUCH to be desired - At least there was coffee. overall the staff was pretty helpful when you needed to find your way into the city/asking for directions.

Hostel was really new and clean, straight away there was a friendly vibe to the place. Staff were so helpful and even carried my bag to the room! Bathrooms are modern and spacious although it is kind of annoying having to walk through the bar/common room to access them. The location is a bit far from the city but it is a pleasant walk along the river. Breakfast was great! Was a bit weird having half a dozen old men staying at a YOUTH hostel, bit creepy having them in our room as 18 year olds.
