    The place is excellent. Spacious room with individual lamps and outlets. Great lobby for relaxing/doing work. A guest kitchen to cook if you’re up for that. Wonderful staff as well

    had a great time here! was in a 10 bed dorm but there are screens around the beds so felt more private. Laundry was reasonable, bar was good, no queues for showers and met some nice people. Kitchen could be bigger but otherwise all good

    Stopped by twice before and after a work conference where I was flying in & out of Lyon. Liked the place! Nice atmosphere and good location (near multiple subway stations). Pricing seemed reasonable as well. Felt like it could have been a tiny bit cleaner (like vacuuming around the beds/inside the bunks), but by regular hostel standards was more than okay.

    One of my favourite hostels I’ve stayed in! The staff were so kind and friendly, particularly - didn’t catch her name - but the gal with the short hair! Grabbed lunch there on the first day and it was delicious, would highly recommend.

    Mixed emotions. The hostel is great - staff, facilities, & guest rooms are some of the best I’ve experienced. But I had a bag stolen out of a secure locker during my last day here - it is thought that someone was following people into rooms & picking locks as there were 3 rooms where this occurred. Whilst this was extremely frustrating the hostel/staff couldn’t have handled it better - The staff was very helpful throughout the process. Therefore I have given them 3/5 for security.

    Very Good

    The two female members of staff who worked on the reception desk, both were very stand offish/rude, because of this I felt uncomfortable to ask them for recommendations of places to visit or ask any other questions that I had.The Dormitory was clean, the bed was comfortable but bathrooms were filthy, they definitely were NOT cleaned on a daily basis, I saw ecomplete squalor! Kitchen was dark and pokey with one of those portable stoves

    Well, you have to pay for the luggage room 0.50 or 1 € per hour and that is not a very good thing. I left it there for 6 hours, I paid 4.50 euro Two receptionist were very kind and friendly (one guy and a girl with a lot of tattoos) whereas two other girls were a bit rude. The hostel looks very nice but just quite clean; it was a bit dirty around my bed with hair and snots of previous people. The kitchen with just one oven for a lot of people is definitely not enough.

    I felt a little uncomfortable in this hostel if I am honest. Being a solo traveller I really wanted to make friends but they didn’t seem to have anything available inside the hostel, you had to go downstairs to the bar, which I didn’t want to do because I didn’t want to drink. The beds were okay, my bag didn’t fit in the lockers so I had to sleep with it on my bed which wasn’t great. My lamp had no bulb. The bathrooms were so dirty. A man sat out the front of the hostel and did try to follow me.
