Beds are comfortable. Hostel is kept clean. The staff are all friendly and polite, and this place seems to attract many interesting and cool guests as well. One thing that could be improved would be the kitchen. There were no knives or cutting boards (you have to get them from the staff kitchen) and another cook top would be handy.... More

Very friendly people, plus very good price. Location is good as well I think, Lyon is not very big, so it is easy and fast to get anywhere. Plus there is a metro. I spent one night in female bedroom. It was fine, and nice girls. Breakfast is included and is totally fine if you don't have high expectations. I... More

The Cool & Bed is a really good-quality hostel. It's got everything you scouts need: a kitchen, laundry facilities, a breakfast buffet (simple but good)... Something a lot of people might worry about is that there are no room keys, so anyone can come and go as they please. Personally, this wasn't a problem at all because the lockers are... More

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
