Hi to the future students of Lyon!

You didn’t find any accommodation in Lyon? You wish to be on the spot to visit some apartments and avoid the bad surprises? No worries! Today we are happy to introduce «Le Flâneur», a guesthouse located in the heart of Lyon. This youth hostel, established in 2015 by three trip lovers, will enable you to start your experience in a warm and welcoming environment. Overview.


At first, the Flâneur is a philosophy – a place where atmosphere and settings are made to invite people to share experiences and to spend time together. To do so, the three founders gave the guesthouse a large common space of 160m², warm and friendly. In this big room, you will find a kitchen, bar, sofas, books, computers and even a piano for music lovers wishing to share their talent!
