Company Description

Located on the banks of the Saône rive, this hostel in Lyon invites you to travel different.

Ideally located in the city of Lyon this lodging close to the city center is more than just an eco-friendly hostel.

At the heart of its philosophy, propose an alternative way of travelling to its guests. Packed with eco-credentials, from smart water management to dry toilets or collective composting, the hostel’s main endeavour is to be a participative one.

All guests of the accomodation are invited to participate in social activities. Either by giving some of their time during their stay to take part in the hostel’s very own radio station, distributing food to the homeless or participating in social events with the hostels partners.

The hostel encourages minimizing your carbon footprint while you travel and encourages you to visit the city with low emission transport. To help you in that perspective, bike and kayak rentals are possible on site. A great way to see the city from another perspective.
