I stayed in this hostel, and was the worst of all my trip to Europe.
Me and my boyfriend were in one room and there was a small shower, horrible shower, there's no even a place for your stuff, and you can't change your clothes in that place. The shower really sucks to humidity and the curtain was dirty. The staff never cleaned the place in 2 nights i was there. We have a bad luck with a guy, who looks really creepy and he was masturbating once(yuck).
The breakfast was poor and the milk was bad. The ma'am who cleans was very unpolite.
If you go to Lyon, don't stay here , better look for a private room or a hotel.

Room Tip: Pick a private room.

3 lockers between 6 in dorm, less than one square metre of shower space in room but shared toilets outside...don't understand why they wouldn't have done it the other way round. Decent breakfast. It's old but I guess that doesn't have to be a negative. If it weren't for the view it would be a poor hostel rather than average; the view is stunning. For €22 a night it's a bit steep but it's the only hostel in Lyon so not much choice I suppose...

I dont understand why there is only one hostel in Lyon? This hostel is ok but I feel that the lack of competition makes the staff, service and the product it self lazy and far from great.

This hostel requires you to make a hosteling international membership- without telling you about this on their website. Its a complete waste of money and extremely annoying.

The hostel has a nice view, the rooms are very small and the shower is maybe the smallest shower on earth. The rooms is very warm in the summer, especially if you stay in the second level of the rooms its unbearable. The staff is not very service minded nor very effective or nice but they get the job done- you just have to wait for a looong time. The bar closes at 12 and even though people are friendly its not really a party place.

I guess the hostel is ok, but I would not stay here again if I had the another option in Lyon.

Easy to get there from the train station (the hill's not a problem). The old town is lovely and the hostel had a good atmosphere with views across the city. Beds and showers fine but (the water only lasts 8 seconds after you press the shower button). Breakfast was bread and cereal. Had a nice time.

Spent a week here and I liked it. Friendly, good bar, great view, nice staff. Rooms were a little crowded, showers were minimal, and place could be cleaner, though. But I liked the convenience and atmosphere. Lyon is a great city. Lots to see and do.
