Great hostel! Very Clean, includes breakfast, a 20 min walk from the old centre of lyon, 5 min walk from subway, big rooms, staff very helpfull (mathieu is awesome!), there are lockers for each one in the rooms (take your own lock), lamps in each bed. The only thing is that for the toiletts you have to cross the bar, but the hostel is so nice that it didn't really mattered that much. I enjoyed very much my stay. Definetely would return!


There is no lock on any door, not on the income door downstaires and not on the bedrooms. I understand that they want to create an open environment but a batch system on the bedroom doors would make me feel a lot safer at night.

Very nice hostel, I enjoyed staying here a lot


This is a really cool place with nice atmosphere and good facilities! Recommend it.


Very good hostel. The staff are outstanding. It's wise to rent a locker - there are no locks on the bedroom doors.


I would definitely return to this hostel. My only complaint would be the showers were moldy, but i just wore my sandles and that was fine. The staff were super helpful, and very kind. :)


A nice backpacker's hostel with a lot of services like a fully functional kitchen, laundry service, they make burgers etc. Some of the staff members are a little over the top and making fun on peoples' expenses. The bed in 6-bed dorm was fine.


Amazing hostel with fantastic atmosphere and friendly staff. Hostel is full of life and has a great bar. Free breakfast too. Its a little far from the train station but thats the only negative


Staff is very friendly, good breakfast and best place in France to meet other travelers Burgers and pizza until late at night on good prices goog wifi inside the rooms


Only complaint would be that the bathrooms were on the otherside of the bar and it was awkward to have to walk through to have a shower. otherwise really enjoyed my time.


we really enjoyed staying here. the stuff was nearly too friendly and all the other guests too. the hostel was cool and local and the breakfast was also good. i can totally recommend this hostel, it was a nice stay.


we had a GREAT TIME at this hostel! :) it has a fantastic atmosphere, it's quite small so it's easy to make friends. you'll feel at home. location is ok: the hostel isn't in the city centre but quite near the metro station. we loved the guys at the reception..really really nice and helpful (both the crazy one and the other one!). the hostel is also provided with a big kitchen. a BREAKFAST is WONDERFUL! :) it's not so cheap but definitely worth the money...we strongly recommend it!!!


far from centre ville but easy to find out if you have a map. staffs are really kind, nice breakfast, and bathroom. but i think i'd be better if there was more toiletes. i can have great trip in Lyon thanks to cool&bed hostel. Thank you!!


Very nice hostel that is pretty clean only thing is that there is no locks on the dorm doors but there are lockers inside just bring your own padlock!


shower room - small from sewer and other things are very nice

Great place to stay. Beautifully decorated, a great communal space with table soccer, mini bar and cafe to buy food from. Not too far from the main sites but a little bit of a walk. Helpful staff - thanks Cool & Bed!


駅から遠いけれど、住環境が良い。 キッチン設備など、一通り揃っている。更に、サーバーで入れたビールがバーで注文できる。 16人ドミトリーと女子専用六人ドミトリーにとまったが、六人ドミトリーは音が響いてうるさかった。


Easy to find, good location on the river and close to fun. My room was actually two rooms combined. Anyone can enter which is worrisome. There are lockers though. Good kitchen too. Guy at the desk was helpful. Not much ease of socializing. The bathrooms were through the lobby. Free breakfast.


If the address can be more clear will be better, not so easy to find
