I was in this hostel for just one night with two friends. It is very well organised, every bed has its own light and plug, with a small shelf. The atmosphere is very relaxed and people working there are really really friendly and laid back. It is the kind of place that makes you feel like you never want to... More

The hostel is great: everything went as expected if not even better! First is one of the few hostel in the city, its position is very comfortable to move by bike and also by subway. The neighborhood is calm, as were the dorms, even the 16 people ones. Each bed has a small shelf, a light, sheets and covers, and... More

This hostel is very clean and colourful. Staff are helpful and fun. Nice bar and common area. Cheap and tasty food. The female showers were nice, with a hair dryer. There is a useful bus right outside. The dorms were clean and quite spacious. Even if Lyons backpackers weren't as limited as they are I would still stay here. The... More

The hostel is just great! Very nice people, clean and close to the (old) center (metro or walk along the river). The atmosphere is very nice and chill too. The owners were very kind and helpfuI. I would definitely recommend it if you would like to spend a few days in Lyon and stay in a hostel.

Hands down the best hostel I've stayed at. Im in my second week of traveling through France and this takes the cake. Mathew (the owner) is a legend and gave us free drinks all the time. The food is a great price and the atmosphere is great for meeting people. Cannot speak highly enough of the place. Order 'The David'... More

Cool and Bed was such an enjoyable stay. The Location of the place is pretty far away from the train station if you chose to walk, like I did ekk. The only other way of getting there is by the train, which is pretty easy to work out. The hostel was very quiet when I was there, so nothing really... More

The hostel is clean, well equipped and very organised. You can have a good meal, a few drinks and sleep like a baby there. The staff are well informed about the city and very friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure staying there, thank you!
