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... 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

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...
