This hostel is located next to the river and on a good 20 minutes walk from the city center. It is basic but enough for a night of sleep. The bed in our 8-person room was not so comfortable. There were lockers though and a light and electricity spot at each bed. The bath rooms were dirty and the toilet... More

We slept in the 6 person dorm room. The room was big and had a locker for everyone. The rooms don't have locks, so you can put your stuff in the lockers. The beds were good. We had a good night of sleep. The rooms were very clean. When we were in Lyon, it was very warm. The rooms have... More

Where do I even start? Staff are amazing so chilled out and helpful. Bar very reasonably priced, very clean everywhere. The atmosphere is so happy that even though I was travelling on my own it never felt like it the day I arrived the chef was organising a home cooked dinner for everybody which was a great way to get...

Had a really fun time at this hostel. The staff were great and helpful, the room was big and clean, and the kitchen had it all. Free breakfast was a plus too. The bathrooms were fine, but to get to them from the room, you had to walk past the reception/ common room/ bar, which was inconvenient. Had to walk... More

Not much emphasis on security (no locks on the dorms, front door is open to anyone til midnight). The kitchen was a bit dirty. However, the staff was friendly and welcoming, and there was high emphasis on socializing and making friends in the hostel. It was a bit of a walk (15 min) to get to anything interesting in the...

When I arrived I was pretty exhausted, but the staff was very welcoming and showed me immediately all the facilities (personally) and helped me with my luggage. It took little time to meet the first cool people. Due to the atmospere, it was very easy and open to have a chat with other travelers. Also it was good, that there... More

I stayed here for 12 days while relocating to Lyon. My only two complaints I had while being here is that it is a bit far from the metro, and from city center. Other than that, everything was as expected. The rooms, linens, showers, kitchen, and common areas were all very clean and well maintained by the staff. They clean... More

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
