This hostel is 2 tube rides away from the main train station and a fair walk from most major sites in Lyon. However, the hostel more than makes up for this and is well worth the price. The staff are lovely and are really friendly, the hostel is well kept, extremely clean and the decor is really cool. Air con... More

The hostel is conveniently situated on a bus rout slightly out of the city center, but it has everything you could want in a hostel. A comfortable environment both in room and the common area, extremely friend staff, the most delicious burgers with goats cheese and of course a fully stocked bar at reasonable prices! I definitely recommend it to... More

This hostel in Lyon is brilliant. All the staff are super friendly and willing to help with your every need. It is a little bit out of the main centre but you can walk there in 30 mins or otherwise you can take a bike, metro or the bus. The wifi is the fastest that I've experienced in Europe and... 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.
