4/10 Fair

Awful money grabbing attitude
Everything here is an attempt to cut costs and make more money. Bed not made (fine), no Aircon despite crazy heat, towels for rent (3.5 euro), lose your keycard (5 euro to replace a bit of plastic), showers on very short timers, toiletries not refilled, bathrooms dirty with mould on ceilings, ants in rooms. Want to leave your bag for a few hours before leaving? Pay per hour for lockers. Awful awful attitude for a hostel.

6/10 Good

No Aircon and noisy, but ok
Industrial style hostel with many rooms and not a whole lot of charm. Towels and breakfast both extra. Very hot evening when I was here and as far as I could tell no Aircon, so Windows open. Very noisy until probably 3am or 4am since it was a Saturday night in central Lyon.

10/10 Exceptional

Very nice hostel on the hearth of Lyon, 30m ftom metro station. Friendly staff, well secure, one minus is they dont have storage room. Instead of that you can leave your luggage at paid lockers. Rooms are big, clean, usb plugs at every bed. Only lack of curtain for individual bed. But in general great hostel. I would stay there again if were in Lyon again.

8/10 Very good

Hostel location was great, and you can’t beat the price for Lyon. However this is a hostel where you must bring your earplugs or noise canceling headphones due to thin walls and street noises well into the morning. Due to covid all hostel social activities are suspended.
