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

This hostel was the only possible place to stay for a solo traveller on a budget within the entire city! Craziness. Thankfully I was driven to Lyon so I didn't have to trek the massive hike or take a very expensive cab (they're soooo expensive there!) Then there's also the massive HILL that it sits upon. However, in saying that... More

This is the ONLY hostel in the amazing city of Lyon, and such a shame. After walking up the big steep hill with my suitcase I was greeted with 'didn't you know about the finicular' No I didn't, that should be in the confirmation email. the staff were polite though and gave me a glass of water. Then i walked... More

Yes the view was fantastic from the hostel, and it was nicely situated in Vieux Lyon, close to some fabulous ruined Roman theatres. Reception was a bit icy, and I was shocked to discover the hostel would only sell me a towel and even then they had run out! Met some nice people here in the wifi area on the... More
