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!!

Had a very pleasant stay. People from staff were very friendly. As other people mentioned in their reviews, the hostel has an interesting lock-free-rooms concept (which I kind of appreciated as there was no key jamming at 2 am) Spacious lockers, clean bathrooms and fully-equipped kitchen.

COOL place to stay!

Towel racks in the dorms would be helpful instead of needing to use the rails of top bunks. Increase the heating, room was cold and heater in the dorm struggled sounding more like it had asthma. Breakfast could involve more than cereals, bread and coffee - yoghurt added as an example. Additional power sockets in the common area for ALL to have a power socket for their device charging, not just those that arrive first and sit there all day.

The only bad thing I would say is that there are no locks on the doors, although you do have pretty good cabinets to store your belongings with a padlock. The staff is very friendly and will do what they can to make your stay enjoyable.

A bit away from the happening neighbourhood. Staff are very friendly. You get a large size lockers which easily fits your backpack. But no door lock so bit of a concern that way. Simple breakfast included.

This hostel is so so clean and the bathrooms/bedrooms are amazing! breakfast was good and it was nice to have the extra option of purchasing an omelette for a small price! Only downside is there are no locks on the doors to any of the rooms but other than that it was great

Very clean. Staff happy to help. No locks on the doors but they give you lockers. Ok location - about 20min walk to the old town and 30min to the bars/restaurants. They have a 24/7 mini kitchen where they cook you awesome cheap burgers. Location and value for money were the downfalls.

Great place to sleep with really friendly personnel and cute little community events from time to time. Only complaint would be that some of the common areas (around the sinks in the kitchen and above the showers) were growing mold. Also be warned, the showers only have 1 temp setting: hot as hell. However these are rather minor details and I would def recommend staying here if you are looking for a cheap cozy place to spend some time in Lyon!

Really nice hostel, Pierre is amazing! Far from the centre but it's a really nice walk or just use the metro. Full kitchen, great dorms! Great wifi. A lot of people staying there when working/studying though, kills the atmosphere a bit

TOP BREAKFAST (omelette)

C&B can be a little difficult to find at first. Once out of the train station, take the street between the kebab shop and CIC bank. Keep walking and turn right when you see the river, and look out for the pale blue cool and bed signage. The staff were really friendly and the breakfast was awesome. Also, the shower rooms were clean but had a little funky musty smell. Overall, C&B is value for money.

Great free breakfast and cheap but delicious hamburgers. Staff were very kind and helpful, only negative thing about the place is its location, which can be solved by metro.

Location was good, the hostel was right on the river making it easy to walk into town. Most of the staff were friendly, except one of the staff members was quite rude. Hostel was clean and they provided you with lockers.

Great place to live at! The beds were a little bit hard but in comparison with the price, location and everything else you can't complain. I would absolutely recommend it to others👍🏼

The hindo woman staff was so rude and unkind person I've ever seen in my life. I had a trouble with making a reservation of train.I had no choice to request her some help because the web site was french.SHe was frown all the time while she was helping me JUST because it is not her task. And even she showed her temper and annoying while she was helping me in front of many other guests. she valued her money even JUST ONE text message to make a reservation for me. SHe is really definately crazy.
