I love this hostel. The situation overlooking Lyon is so unique and peaceful. The staff is generally really helpful. The internet connection is a bit of a challenge and could be improved, but then I just enjoy not going online for a change which is nice. I like the rooms, the colours and the beds... In winter the blankets are a bit thin for comfort.... I enjoyed staying in a room not on the ground floor this time and in the right wing of the hostel.... It was more quiet and restful for me.

L'auberge donne une superbe vue sur la ville, le personnel est efficace et courtois et beaucoup de services sont offerts (petit-déjeuner, ordinateurs, bar, beaucoup de disponibilité à la réception, etc). J'ai eu une belle expérience à cette auberge!
