Very nice hostel, very clean, nice staff. Breakfast offered. This is my first hostel experience and I like the atmosphere; I am very very happy! The hostel seems to be a bit far from the old town but there are bus lines that lead directly to Croix-Rousse, City Hall, Part-Dieu or Perrache. Very practical!

The hostel is really cozy and nice, the workers are extremely friendly and helpful. very hospitality and the food is quite cheap. But the location is quite far from the station and the room smells a little strange. I don't think it's very clean but it's ok.

Has a very clean, relaxed environment. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Liked the free breakfast, and it was also just a short walk to the historic district of Lyon along the river. I would go back.

Great rooms with reading lamps. Lovely travel-related decor in the hostel. Kitchen is well-equipped. Bathrooms are clean. Staff made me feel at home, explained facilities thoroughly and organised a darts competition at night. Good vibe. Breakfast included.

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...

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...
