    The MEININGER is a great hostel/hotel combo and I highly recommend it. The staff is very nice, friendly, and helpful. The room was sparkling clean and the beds were very comfortable. They have a clean kitchen and seating area for all guests. It is about a 15 minute walk from Gare de Lyon- Perrache, which is convenient. They allow you to store your luggage in their luggage room, which is a plus.

    This hostel was much more akin to a hotel than any I've ever had before. The rooms were spotless, the staff was friendly, and it's located right next to a tram line that takes you into the center of the city. My only gripe is that in each room, there are bunk beds and a pair of twins placed together. I was unfortunate enough to get one of these twin beds and basically slept with someone for the nights that I was there. It was weird. No curtains on the bunks, either.

    Overall I really enjoyed my stay. Staff was kind and helpful, rooms were cozy and clean. The dormitory rooms each had their own bathroom with a shower which was really nice. Quite content.

    The place is great yes it is more like a hotel but I don’t mind it. The rooms are pretty decent size. I stayed in a 4 bed and it had en suite. The staff was friendly the bar and menu is pretty decent prices. I would definitely stay here again. The only down side no laundry room and it says that they have one on here. The WiFi is good and the showers are nice and hot. Beds are comfy as well.

    Very Good

    13 Jan 2020
    This was super nice place to stay. It’s pretty much a hotel with shared rooms. Very clean and modern. En-suite bathrooms. It’s very far from the touristy areas so it’s best to get on your walking shoes or just buy a 24hr transit pass. The bar is cool enough with cheap food and drinks (for France). Not the most social hostel but it’s perfect if you want some peace. Not much for common area except the bar. Overall a pleasant stay!
