Property Description

If you looks for reducing your ecological print, come to Alter’hostel ! We also organize cultural and festive events for our customers with great large beers and surprises. You’ll find all the services of a great hostel (dorms, breakfast, bar, lunch, dinner, shop) and more because we rent bikes, cargo bikes and kayaks to visit our beautiful city.

Alter’hostel is located along the Saône River, in a very nice place in Lyon. From the docks, you discover our famous “Fourvière” basilica up to you. The postcard is a mix of old stones, water, bridge, colored houses. In front of you, you see another famous place: “Croix Rousse“ ‘hill. The old city is not far and you can have a trip with the “Vaporetto”, the only bus boat of Lyon.

    Very Good

    29 Aug 2018
    Very easy to meet people. The hostel isn't too far of a walk to Vieux Lyon (maybe 20 minutes or so), and then maybe 30 minutes to the shopping centre. There are no keys to get into the hostel, nor are there keys to get into the individual rooms. The lockers for each bed are very large (I managed to fit everything into my locker), but for some rooms their lockers are in the hallway. There are 3 toilets for 40 beds, but the showers are fantastic.

    Was a good experience except as they keep the windows open in the rooms during the day I think a mosquito got trapped and on my last night I got absolutely bitten alive. Aside from that it was pleasant.

    Clean and great stuff. Liiiiiitle bit more far away from the centre, but still walkable and the entrance is quite hard to find and doesnt look very safe, but it is. The ppl in the hostel were super non-talkative, but that might be just some strange coincidence.

    There wasn't much of an environment at this hostel and is not really close to anything. Compared to the other hostels I stayed at during my backpacking trip, this was my least favourite. It was also full of tacky signs everywhere. There isn't a room key or anything, and you can't lock your doors. There isn't even a key to get into the hostel so anyone could just waltz in and go straight to our rooms. Didn't really like that and didn't feel safe... Won't be back...
