    This hostel is rather luxurious for its price, as it’s also a hotel. I stayed in a 4bed female dorm which could’ve also been a family room, as the bathroom was ensuite and it had a TV. The furniture and electronics were very modern and the staff was lovely, especially at the bar downstairs! The kitchen is a bit small though and I couldn’t find big bowels, but Lyon has so many restaurants and cafés to offer so I used the kitchen only once. And it’s really close to public transport if you need it!

    One of the most comfortable, clean, and best maintained hostels I've been to. Definitely feels like staying in a nice shared hotel room. No hostel vibe at all is the flipside of that, but with a few comfortable sleeps here, it's easy to overlook that. Only complaints are that water in the shower didn't really get hot and the room's thermostat didn't appear to work very well and kept the room stuffy and warm no matter what I tried to do.

    Really enjoyed my stay here, a lot of the reviews say that it feels like a hotel, but i didn’t experience this. The dorms are well set out, with shelves, cupboards and cubby holes for privacy. If anything there could be bigger lockers. Very big and professional hostel. Staff were so nice, welcoming and helpful at check in. I’d stay at Meininger again wherever int he world.

    One of the cleanest and well kept hostels I’ve stayed at. The cleaning staff is exceptional. The common areas were nice but not really used. I got the sense that an older, more professional crowd usually stays there. The location wasn’t city center but it was walkable to the main part of Lyon and was also close to public transportation.

    Very friendly and helpful staff that managed to help source football tickets for the Lyon vs Juventus game. Hostel is outstandingly good value for money that is super clean. Bar was good but had little atmosphere as it was more families and older couples staying. Would definitely return.

    There are two (huge!) pots in the kitchen for the whole hostel. Plus I didn't find any soap for washing the dishes properly, not that great in times of Corona. I slept on a bed more or less´ in the middle of the dorm (8-bed dorm). I would have appreciated having at least a meter distance to the other girl sleeping on the bed next to me (especially in times of Corona) The bathroom is right in the dorm, couldn't dry my hair at 9 am because of people sleeping, went to explore the city with wet hair
