Wonderful room with a view. Very good breakfast. The self-catering kitchen is too small to be really practical, but thankfully on this occasion I wasn't relying on it to prepare a meal.

Could inform guest that we need to prepare our own locks before arrival. Everything else is fine or bearable. I like Lyon and the hostel did not ruin my stay! (Some do)
