THE STORY: Located in the heart of Lyon, this new hostel with Scandinavian influences — soft colors, modern furniture, light hardwood floors — plays the “less is more” card. In addition to a coffee shop, a table d’hôte and a mobile library space, Away Hostel offers well-designed rooms (double or shared rooms with stacked Japanese-style beds, and suites that you can rent out for 8 to 10 people…) at very sweet prices. Starting at €23 a night for a shared room, and €65 a night for double rooms!
TOILETRIES: Shampoo and shower gel.
INTERNET: Wifi (free).
BREAKFAST: Starting at €3 with filtered coffee, fruit juice and tartines, plus all the products for sale in the coffee shop — cake of the day, scones, crêpes, croissants, cappuccinos, lattes…
LITTLE LUXURY: Being able to check your email on one of their iMacs, while sipping on a cappuccino in the lounge.
