The Space

Hi dear visitors, welcome to Lyon !

I propose a triple room that is shared, if you're alone traveling and want something cheap as hostel, confortable like home, here we go !

I offer :

- clean bed sheets, blanket, towel
- superfast wireless internet
- basic supplies for breakfast and meal (including pasta and rice)
- maps, information about lyon

The flat is 80 square meters, with a nice living room, kitchen and bathroom that you share with two other rooms that are usually rented for long stays.

In the dormitory, all is included, nothing to bring as bed linen, towels, cleaning, soap and shampoo, all provided :)

Warning to smokers : smoking is prohibited in the whole flat and you will need to go downstairs to smoke outside the building !

Metro is 8 minutes by foot, bus is down the flat, bike rental as well. You have small shops and all you need around.


Frequently Asked Questions :

- May I pay cash when arriving ? :

no, reservations are only online with the website. The website ensures you a safe transaction and after sale support in case of a problem. The payment will be transfered to me by the website after your arrival.

- Someone will welcome us ? :

Most of the time, I do welcome guests by myself, but it can happen, depending on my schedule and your arrival time, that I send the keys by post, or have the long term tenant welcome you at home. In no case you must disturb my neighbours, ask information or anything. They're not supposed to help you and don't want to be disturbed by my activity.

- Are we alone in the flat ? :

No, the flat is occupied by one long-term tenant in one room, one room is rented as a private double and the third room is a dormitory (cheaper and shared). Depending on the ad you selected, you have one or the other. Thus, it can be up to 7 people in the flat (it never happened :) )

- Where is the flat ? :

My flat is located where the map shows on the website. You're 50 meters from the nearest bus stop, that gets you to the train station in 10 minutes. There is a metro 8 minutes walk away that takes you to bellecour (touristic center) and vieux lyon (old town) in 8 and 9 minutes. You can reach part dieu station in 20 minutes by foot, the other side of lyon in 1h walking slowly.

- Do we have keys to get in the flat ? :

Yes, I'll leave you one set of keys per person.

- May we invite friends in the flat ? :

Generally speaking no, for safety reasons. Still, if I'm aware of that and if you ask, I can make exceptions, but it has to be during the day without disturbing other guests.

- Do you have a locker ? :

Unfortunately, not yet !

- May we cook in the place / leave food in the fridge ? :

Of course, the only rule is to leave kitchen as you found it, not to leave food without saying and putting your name (a marker is available), and not to use my items of course !

- Where can I smoke ? :

In no case inside the flat (moreover, you might trigger a fire alarm), you can do so outside of the building, quietly.

- Can I park / Is it a safe area ? :

No-one yet complained about parking issues, nor about anything broken on his/her car ! The area is generally safe like France in general.

- Is the flat clean ? :

Yes, bed linen is changed after every guest, and every week for long stay. Cleaning is done at least 2 times a week, the flat is kept very clean.

- May we access the Internet ?

Yes, there is free Wifi in the whole flat.

  • 한국인 후기는 하나도 없어서 고민을 많이 했지만 역에서 가까워서 일단 결정해본 집입니다. 주인 나탈리는 친절하고 말이 안통해도 번역기로 돌려가며 잘 설명해 주었습니다. 시설은 깨끗한 편이고 화장실,거실 등 넓습니다. 여기서 만난 외국인들과 술을 마시기도 했구요 !
    3일동안 전체적으로 만족했습니다 ! Natalie! Au revoir. Reconnaissant.

  • Bonne expérience. La première fois que j'utilise le site. Même si c'est ex-centré bien relié avec le centre ville. Meilleur option à un auberge.

  • Hi! I would like to say that I had such a great time at Romain and Galina's place.
    The place is (email hidden) Metro Station, and also near the Lumiére Museum (just 10 minutes). It has a supermarket nearby, pizzeraria, pharmacy, bus stops all around.
    The place was clean, everything in the right place and with a nice Sunshine that make it prettier. The permanent tenant Nathalie is very helpful and friendly. I met really nice people there, and I am sure that the good atmosphere helped for that. I felt like I was at home.

  • I didn't get to meet Romain, but he was very pleasant by email (though my email tried to eat his first two messages). I was there during a pretty quiet time (over the Christmas holiday) so I had the room to myself. The flat itself was clean, quiet, and quite comfortable. I enjoyed meeting Nathalie who was one of the longer-term tenants who welcomed me. The flat is situated quite nicely -- close to bus stops (right across the street for the line that takes you back to Part Dieu train station), and about a 10 minute walk from the metro line that will take you right into downtown Lyon. I quite enjoyed my stay there, and would stay there again if I ever return to Lyon.

  • Had a good experience overall staying with Romain and his lovely wife. Basically, you're staying in an extra bedroom set up as a hostel dorm. He has a few things sat out for breakfast along with tea and coffee available, and use of the fridge and freezer if you're picky about your breakfast like me. The place has wifi, and although it's a bit slow at times, I'm not sure who's end that's on. The place is close to a bus stop that takes you to the main part of town but I never used it; I have a tendency to walk everywhere I go. This took about 45 minutes every day to walk into town at a brisk pace. Romain helped with finding places and making recommendations as well.

    Response from Romain & Galina:

    sorry chris that you had some trouble with internet, strange as you're the first and only one who complained ! as I told you we have some trouble on youtube like many ISPs in France, but that's pretty much all... strange :) hope you could enjoy a good stay though !
