I booked a bed here for 3 nights and flew away after the first! Property is really poor, even by french standards! This hostel doesn't propose any activity whatsoever and the overall atmosphere isn't at its best since a lot of the clients are homeless junkies... The breakfast served is minimalist. The only positive comment i could make is about... More

Let's start with the pro's: + an amazing view over the city (terrace & rooms) + calm area of the city + nearby the center (the hill up there is exhausting, but that's life :-) ) + friendly staff + price In generally, this youth hostel really fits into our expectations. The rooms were just ok, showers and toilets could... More

This is the best hostel in Lyon and one of the best hostel's I've stayed in. Amazing view and great terrace. Really friendly staff, enjoyed playing guitar outside with them. Perfect place to meet people. Ok, there's a hill but no big deal, worth it for the view and we all have legs right? Right in the heart of the... More

I spent there 4 nights... and I didn't want to leave! It's true that there's a large slope to get there, but I think it's possible to get there by funicular. Anyway, it wasn't really a problem and for me it was totally worth. Once I got there I found a warm and comfy place, with nice views of the... More

I loved Lyon because it's beauty but also for the people I met in the hostel. It has a really cool terrace with an amazing view of the city, a cheap bar and a area to share and meet people. To get to the hostel you have a to climb (it's killer but I did it every day to not... More

I stayed in the hostel several times, and it was great, a beautiful view, big kitchen and nice shared spaces to meet with other travellers. The price probably is the best in the city and the location is very close to the main attractions.

Terrible hostel. They have bed bugs in some rooms and I was bitten so badly. The bugs were so huge. Even after claiming the problem, staffs didn't care and didn't try to solve the problems. I will never use here again. Breakfast isn't great. Breads had moulds. Room isn't spacious and of courses not clean. Less number of shower rooms.

I stayed here for 4 days while in Lyon and enjoyed it. the location isent bad only being 10min from the city center and only 2min from the old town though that steep hill up to the hostel can be a bother climbing each night. the Wi-fi is very good with no problems even when a lot were using it....

My experiences were positive: I found the staff quite friendly, the dormitory bed was comfortable enough and the room not crowded, the bathrooms were fine, and I loved the hostel's location. The views from the dormitory window and from the outdoors area where I enjoyed the breakfast included in the tariff were amazing. I had no problems walking up the... More

This hostel is fine as a place to sleep for a night, however, there's not much more to it than that. The rooms and bathrooms are basic, and not all that clean. Breakfast (juice, tea/coffee, cereal, bread, jam etc) is included in the price which is a positive. There is a communal dining/bar area, as well as a few chairs... More
