Although the common room is large, there was no atmosphere. Showers and toilets were excellent; very large, modern and incredibly clean. The hostel is a walkable distance from the town centre. Breakfast was poor, we only had cereal. Also, the door to your room has no lock which makes it not very secure.

A great hostel! Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Although the hostel is not in the very center you can easily get there walking along the river which is just lovely. Definately a hostel to recommend :)

Fantastic hostel with a relaxed atmosphere and modern facilities, free parking a 2 minute walk away was a bonus for me, but the location is central enough for anyone using public transport. The owner Matt is full of energy, mingles with the guests, and cooks the best burgers I've ever had. Highly recommended.

Excellent atmosphere, friendly staff. The hostel was much further away from the train station than I expected. But it was a 20 minute walk from the Old Town, which is pretty much all there is to see in Lyon.

This is a great place to stay. There are no locks on the bedroom doors but lockers and padlocks were provided for valuables, so it wasn't a problem. The atmosphere was very relxaxed, not too quiet and not too noisy. This is a great place to meet new people and make friends. I would seriously recommend it.

Best hostel I've been to in a while. The staff Mathieu and Pierre are insanely friendly, funny, and adorable and contribute to the great atmosphere. The common area is great for meeting people. The rooms are well designed with individual lockers, lights, and plugs. The bathrooms are large, modern, clean. Since France is so expensive in general, at least here you get good value for what you pay for. Would definitely recommend and stay here again. Vive la France!!

I LOVED this hostel. The owners and staff are very friendly and it is very clean. I know some people have complained about location, but I thought it was great and it is a short walk from the metro. I passed by some hostels that were more central and were on a hill, which would have been a PAIN to walk up with my bag. The fact that they make food and cocktails at the hostel is such a convenience if you are too tired to go out. It is also a small hostel so it is not very noisy.

Really great hostel (with surprisingly good hamburgers). Very safe, very clean. The only problem is that you can count on a half hour walk to get anywhere.

I only stayed here for two nights, but can honestly say that. Cool&Bed is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. The common area is well designed and there's a bar there that sells liquor for very reasonable prices. The staff is great, especially Matthieu. I highly recommend this hostel.
