    It was a great place to stay, it's a little bit far from the train stations but it's definitely worth what you pay for. Bathrooms are clean but there aren't that many. It has nice living rooms to chill and talk with others. Rooms are fine.

    Overall, it was a nice place, BUT my friend did see a bedbug. She told the staff and they gave her new sheets, as well as cleaning the bed the following day when we were out. Still a bit icky, but bed bugs can be a problem even in high-end hotels. We really enjoyed relaxing in the common area, which was huge and bright and gorgeous. I really liked their focus on being environmentally friendly, too.

    A hostel that is aware of its impact on the environment, quite nice to see! The location is a bit far from the train station (part dieu) however me and my friends walked everywhere quite easily. But be prepared to walk. Privacy and facilities were good, a kitchen complete with most things! Atmosphere was not great, as everyone spoke French and did not interact with us, people of all ages were there.
