It's a small hostel and the staff are helpful. The computers didn't appear to be working but I didn't ask either: Although the hostel seems far from the centre of town it's not really. If you like walking you can take a leisurely stroll into town. Also there is a bus stop 20m away (Pont Koenig). If I stayed again I would request an extra blanket since the airconditioning was still running (end of October) so I was cold at night. I would stay again.


The best thing about this hostel is the staff. They're so nice, not everyone speaks english but they still manage to help you out in the best possible way. The guy working in the mornings absolutely rocks! Haha The hostel is generally very clean and has a good kitchen with enough space to store the food. The only thing is the security, the door don't have lock so everyone outside your dorm could eventually walk in but if you have a good padlock in your locker it should be enough.


Really clean beds and cool bar. Nice and helpful stuff and good breakfast. Big locker and comfort environment. Recommend.


My reservation was doublebooked so i had nowhere to sleep and had to search for a new place at 11pm sunday night. My £80 deposit is gone and i received no refund. Worst experience ever!

A very nice, funky place for short period of time. Very good breakfast and common area with good facilities. Though it's a little bit away (off) from the (historical) town center, it is manageable for value for money.


I got to the Hostel after midnight because my flight had been delayed and there was asbolutely no problem. There was a very nice night guy there to check me in, give me a tour of the place, give me suggestions as of what to do in Lyon and the surrounding cities, and... wait for it... I EVEN COULD GET FOOD!! I was starving and it turned out they have a grill open if you fell like a panini or a burger, so I was a happy camper :) It wasn't as close to the town center though, but it is close to othe


not bad, reasonable prices and the room is big so even with 14 or so people in there your not cramped


the location is not that ideal being about 750m from the nearby metro station, especially when it is raining and you have to carry some luggages this distance is just pain in the ass... Nevertheless, the inside of the hostel is quite nice. nice kitchen and quite sapcious common area~ the bathrooms are clean~ there are also two plugs for each bed in the room~ padlock is available for renting also~ in general recommended~


Very friendly staff. Breakfast included ! If u want a place to meet new people go there ;)

Staff was great. The location is a bit away from metro. There are no locks on the room doors. Also, the men's showers require you to push a button and water comes out only for a little while so then repeat. The common area was nice and welcoming.
