Nice hostel, where i ve met really cool people, the location is perfect, the staff is quite nice and it s very clean! common area is cool but closes pretty early though


Really good hostel.. very close to train station and everything u want to see. excellent kitchen


booked a private double. It was more like a hotel than a hostel. They had a big bathroom which was a surprise and the common area is nice. kitchen could be bigger though...


It is about a 10 minute walk from the north (Bruxelles-Nord) train station and a 10 minute walk to Grand Place! They have free wifi and lockers available to keep you belongings. You can get a towel for a euro and they have a kitchenette area and lounge with a fireplace. My room was rather warm seeing as I was all the way up on the 4th floor.

The place was very nice and clean. They charge a 10 dollar deposit for the bed linen. The price wasn't too high and they had a nice lounge area to eat or meet some people. Its not that far away from downtown and its 5 minutes away from the train station. Would recommend.

The hostel in general is so well managed. The only thing that I did not like is that they close the kitchen and the common area up to 11 pm, the rest of the services (including bedrooms) are really good and people there is kind


Pretty good Hostel. Nice Location and pretty good value. Only request would to be have the common room open a little later at night to give you some more social time. Anyways, happy for a good stay.


Not far from the Grand Place and Brussels Nord, so really no need for public transport. Kitchen and common area close for part of the day and at 11pm (I believe, it may have been midnight). Anyone in the hostel has access to the key for the luggage room.


The lack of secure storage after check out was annoying, have heavy laptop that i dont want to carry around but could not securely leave in hostel


Nice clean hostel. central to everything. Ten minutes walk from nord central.


I would have loved if the lounge and kitchen area didnt close

Of course, this information, about the reception closing, is provided on the website.


Hostel in a nice location very easy to go around in the city. It was a bit annoying that I could get my room after 4pm as i arrived early that day. Also kitchen was a bit poorly equipped. Common room didn't really give the atmosphere to get to know other people especially if you travel alone. I met most of the people in my room. Overall it was a good hostel, really nice people and helpful staff, nice location.


Good location, friendly staff. I stayed in a 4 bed room with its own bathroom, so it was quite convenient. I did not like the fact that you cannot check out at any time (only after 7:30 a.m.). Most hostels have someone at the front desk 24/7. All things considered it was quite good and I do recommend it.

Of course everybody can check out at anytime. even when the front desk is closed. There is a place to leave your sheets and keycard.


The beds are OK, lights and AC sockets for each one, lockers for everyone in the room, but the showers and toilets are outside the room. I payed about 90 euros for 2 nights which wasn't a good value for money. The wi-fi is good, but the kitchen closes at 11, if you can believe that.

You paid 93 Euro for TWO people for TWO nights during the weekend and the busiest week of the year between Christmas and NewYears. Average of 23 Euro per person per night. We think that was a very fair price. The majority of the rooms have ensuite facilities except for one 4 bed dorm and the big dorm rooms =>8 people.


Decent hostel would be ideal for 1 or 2 nights stay. Don't have anything bad to say about it


The hostel is in an excellent location and provides dorms with large lockers. However, the beds are crammed into small rooms, there is no bed allocation (our room mates had spread themselves across all 3 bottom bunks) they were undergoing renovation and started power tools very early. The common rooms close at strange times and the waffles that are advertised for breakfast are not available!! Also check in at 4pm make your own beds and sheeting with a large deposit required


-We loved the attic dorm, so beautiful and comfortable. -the wifi is strong and very handy -would really appreciate if a table is provided to put food on top of it.


On edge of the city centre. Beds ok, no lockers in the room. Showers good and kitchen has most things. Annoying thing that common room shuts at 11pm so to get out we had to go up 2 levels from basement and around to other exit. No individual lights in room was a problem as one person wanted to stay up. Overall not too bad.


Good location but the hostel was in the middle of renovations so could be noisy and dirty. No lockers in the rooms. And lockout during the middle or the day from the common room made it very hard to meet people.

All the dorm rooms are rennovated now. Brand new rooms. The lockers for some rooms are just outside the room in the hallway. The lockout for the reception area in the afternoon is as little as 1 hour, the time to clean the common area.


It was a great hostel in context of infrastructure... but it had a strange policy regarding the common room which really did not allow the travellers to mingle...
