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!

Cool&Bed is definitely a place I would choose to stay again. The hosts were so accommodating and genuinely attentive to each guest. They went above and beyond to help you and were so excited about life! The actual hostel was quite clean and well maintained. The kitchen facilities were nice, and the wifi worked like a charm. I was nothing... More

Love Matthew and Pierre! They really bring their hostel to life and keep it entertaining. They're very knowledgable about the area and offered lots of suggestions and help. Matthew even offered to drive me to the train station... and ended up doing so twice due to the train strike. Tebo runs an excellent Thursday night pub crawl, and since he's... More

One of the best hostels I've ever been to!! It's clean, the rooms are comfortable and the kitchen is equipped with everything you need! There's air conditioning in the main hall as well as in the rooms, and the staff is really friendly. If I go back to Lyon, sure I will book there again :)

Regarding rooms it's a very standard hostel. They do have some very large rooms though, with many occupants, not a problem for the most part, but one snorer will keep the whole lot awake! Wifi is everywhere, and they have some computers if you don't have a laptop. They provide breakfast which is great. Standard fare (cereals, breads, jams, etc),... More
