I received a very warm welcome including a glass of wine when I arrived at the hostel even though it was past 11pm at night. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The hostel is new and well run with great facilities and a short metro ride to the centre. A great place to stay if visiting Lyon!

Just the epitome of a perfect hostel, minus an absent kitchen and 5 euros for a basic breakfast, but totally salvageable for the friendly staff, relaxing decor and environment, well-maintained facilities, and just the overall fact that it smells like heaven in here. Also close-by to the underground and main train station, as well as maybe a 5-minute walk to the bridge. Super fast wifi! Definitely one of my faves and set a standard for the rest of my hostel stays.

This hostel =- probably the best in France I've stayed it - is exceptionally clean, very secure, features very friendly staff, a good breakfast, nice indoor and outdoor 'chill-out' areas, a wide selection of books to read, and is topped off by pleasing atmospheric music in the main common area. I will definitely stay here again should I be in this region.

I loved my stay here. The staff were super kind and helpful. It wasn't a super long walk to the peninsula, which is where I spent most my time. It would be cool to stay on the peninsula, though. Also I wish the kitchen were more accessible. It's not really meant for use by guests. Otherwise, the place is incredibly clean and chill, and a great place to relax and stay.

No kitchen, which is ridiculous for a hostel (I could have just stayed in a hotel and ate out for every meal..) Beds are very noisy. Not the best/safest location - its in an Arab district and walking around at night doesn't feel very safe. Breakfast is expensive for what it is - 6 euros for cereal and bread - and if you want a croissant its 1 euro extra..per croissant!

Hi.Even we don't have cooking hobs yet, we have a microwave, fridge, kettle, plate, glasses, which can be used by our guests. There's a supermarket 3 mn walking and you can easily cook. We are between the chinese, french and arabic district and we never had ANY safety problem. That is what we can call a "cosmopolite area" and won't disturb open minded travelers. Breakfast is not 6 but 5€, ALL YOU CAN EAT bread, cereals jam butter INCLUDING 1croissant pp + coffee/tea, really cheap for france !

We had a really lovely stay, the location is excellent and the staff were really helpful. The common area was really relaxed with a great atmosphere and bar. Although we stayed in an 8 bedroom dorm and there was only bathroom between us and another room which is a bit annoying and the beds were REALLY creaky.

Shower room was very tiny. Very nice hostel, brand new and trendy. But there really isn't a "hostel" feel... No activities, drinks, etc. But great place to lay your head down.

깔끔한데 그날 다른방 사람들이 너무 시끄러웠구요 로비?인가 거기에서 돈받고 동네 모임하는거 같던데 정신이 없더라구요

Great location and facilities in deed. However, it was the most expensive hostel I stayed in France. 28 euros per person per night at mixed room with 6 beds. Overall, I really recommand this hostel when traveling Lyon and even, if I would go there, I'd love to stay !! :)

Hello and thanks for your review. For your information, our prices are far less expensive than some hostels in Paris or Nice (40EUR/night !!). Thanks for recommending us, it was a pleasure to welcome you ! Safe travels

Luxury hostel.. Atmosphere of a hotel, very clean and pretty and plenty of space. However, no cooking facilities (hotel..) and not enough bathrooms for the dorms rooms (1.5 bathrooms For two 8 person rooms). If you want a cheap hotel- that is your place!

Hi ! Thanks a lot for your review. We do have cooking facilities that we share with our guests (microwave, kettle, plates, cutlery, fridge, etc.). Regarding the bathroom, we have a total of 1 bathroom for 5/6 persons in the hostel which is higher than the hostel industry average ;-) See you soon and safe travels !
