WiFi works fine and the only problem is that is a little far from attractions. met nice people there... More

The first thing i noticed was how individualized each bed was. every bunk comes with your own electrical plugs, a cubby, locker, and reading light. Most hostels ive stayed at have central utilities that everyone has to share, but with cool & bed everyone has their own. The showers and bathrooms were quite modern and clean. The kitchen is fully... More

Rooms where funky, showers were clean and staff were super friendly and helpful giving us directions of trying to get a meal in town as well as getting to the train station. Extra plus that they can do laundry for us late at night. I would recommend.

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.
