Amazing beds. Smells nice when you enter and also they cook you a hamburger for a very good price! I love this place. Wanna go back.

nice staff there!


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.


Very nice atmosphere, greetings, and great staff! flexible! I would recommand you this location for sure.

Loved it... Wish I had an excuse to stay longer


Everything was great. kind staffs, funny interior, etc. But location wasn't good.


A handy location if you enjoy a walk to the different tourist attractions around the city! The staff are very helpful and friendly, willing to help as much as possible! Good clean rooms, kitchen facilities and bathrooms! Recommend


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.


This was an awesome place, especially because of the staff. Free breakfast was also nice. Rooms were clean and comfortable and sensibly designed. Bathrooms are in a central location. The hostel is ~15 minute walk from the city center but it is beautiful and peaceful along the river. Fun place


Thank you to all the staff at cool and bed, your one of my favourite hostels in Europe!!


The atmosphere of the hostel is very warm. Easy to meet people. It is located near the Vieux Lyon district in walking distance. Cheerful staff. Simple but great breakfast.


Thank you so much to Hira for going above and beyond to look after me while I was sick. Other staff were also excellent. Huge bonus: power outlet and light for each bed. No locks on dorm doors but a large enough locker to store your backpack, and staffed 24h a day.


The hostel staff was very nice. The location is farther to the center than I would like (20-25 minute walk); however, it's only about a 4-5 minute bus ride to the center. The bus stop is right down the street. The shower facility was ok. Too bad that I couldn't see too much of it due to the fact that half the spot lights were always out. There were no locks on the doors; however, lockers are provided to secure valuables. Not sure why, but there is only a pub crawl on Thursdays (?).


Overall very nice stay! Only complaints would be the atmosphere was lacking (giant group of middle school kids there and a few random, much older men). They provide lockers in the rooms, however, locks on the doors would be nice as well. Staff is super friendly!


soo cooool, sooo beddd

I stayed there only for one night, but it was great place to stay. Staff were really helpful and friendly. The room was big enough for 6 people and they rent me a lock for the locker in the room. (5 EUR for deposit) Breakfast was very basic, they have lagguage storage for free. Only bad thing was the bathroom. After 3 mins you turn on the shower, water is everywhere. And the floor was slippery because of filth. Other than that, it was nice and fun hostel:)


Nice to stay


Staff were great! Super helpful and friendly. One guy even lent me his bike for the day.


Perfect location, and the staff was great and carrying! But the showers were a bit mouldy!
