Fabulous 8.6 From 84 reviews

Very Good 8.0
The cafe was excellent, the reception desk was nice, the hostel was clean, the location was good. There was a good lounge area in the front, and a good dining area. The kitchen had one burner, but they had meals you could pay for. There was no AC in the dorm room and it was really hot. Someone in my room closed the windows to keep out the street noise and it trapped the hot air in. Also, the reception assigned me a bed that was already assigned. Then, they gave my second bed to someone else again. I kept having to go down to get a new bed. It was very disorganized. But, the staff were nice.

Good 6.0
Overpriced and anti social
Well beds r hard as rock social vibe irrelevant, better and cheaper off having a party in ur own room than down in the common area. They need to organize a actual luggage room as well vs. Small laying lockers when u vould simply lpck the door to the luggage room like every other hostel on earth does. Staff are not as qualified as need to tlbe eother. Typical unorganized uneducated uncompfy french place.

Value for many in a charming environment
It's too personal but it was one my best choices ever: I travel to Lyon for a concert in the Groom. When I was almost at the hostel I realized that the concert venue is in the same building:) So I could not be closer. There are funny notices everywhere on the walls but one is definetly missing from the rooms: "Dear guests, please mute your smart phones when others would like to sleep!"
