    Wonderful stay!! Is a super cute hostel with a great lounge downstairs. It’s a fairly quiet environment, which I honestly didn’t mind as it was a good resting stop after Paris. There is a family dinner table next to the kitchen, so it’s not hard to make friends. Is right next to a park and a quick uphill walk to views of the city. Neighborhood has cute restaurants too! 15 minute walk to the busy/tourist part of Lyon (near the basilica). BIG NOTE - NO ELEVATORS - I didn’t mind at all, but will definitely be

    The stay was great! The location is excellent. Super central and near some cool bars and coffee shops . The room was comfortable, spacious and bright. The staff were lovely. There is so much space to sit and chat from the kitchen to the cute coffee shop. My only critiques would be that the kitchen was too small for the number of guests staying, and that they don't have a storage room to leave your luggage for free. You have to pay for relatively expensive lockers in their basement.

    The rooms are really big which is great and the bunk beds are parted by a wall. The bathrooms are really nice. Only issue was there is no aircon so the room gets quite hot. We had to leave the windows open all night to try and let some breeze in and the sound from outside (three bars very close by) was very loud, with people yelling and roaring past on scooters from 2am, making it hard to sleep (we maybe had 4hours sleep each night)

    Staff was very kind, location was perfect and the common area and kitchen were nice. Downside is that, like other reviews said, there is no airconditioning and the street is really loud so if you have trouble sleeping with noose, than this isn’t your place. Also, there was mold in the shower.

    So hot in the summer it’s horrible and they don’t have AC. That said, it’s a nice hostel otherwise and I’d recommend it outside of the summer months.

    Good hostel with good rooms, the toilets were clean but the shower had so many insects and bugs which was a little gross. Other than that was pretty decent.

    A cute hostel about 20 mins on public transport from the train stations. Super noisy at night as there is a bar underneath and you can hear everything. No air conditioning. A bit hard to meet people if you are travelling solo.
