It's a sports club that has some hostel rooms as well. Bath room was not as usual for hostels, more like a sports club. Hostel is located at the final metro station "Herrmann Debroux" but you have to walk at least 10 minutes from the hostel to the station. Room was clean and big, everything has been ok. Parking is for free. For one or two nights I can recommend you to stay there.
nice service (but not all able to communicate in other languages than french), modern facility top equiped - we enjoyed the stay and would like to thank the team! best regards ...
It is not a regular hostel, as it is part of a larger sports facilites. Rooms are in good conditions, clean and with new furniture. Drawbacks: bathrooms like in a gym and location, it is pretty far from the city centre.
It was a very different experience for me to have stayed at a sports facilities center. But, my family all loved it! The staff were very kind and friendly to answer any questions I had, and I enjoyed my quiet sleep there.
Great price, good facilities. It's a youth sports complex and accommodates for such, so expect summer camps and lots of kids. Location is the only kicker... Really, really far from anything (15 minute walk + metro ride of more than 10 stops). I could imagine it is a difficult journey if you wanted to come back from partying or a night out.
Staff very friendly and helpful. The place is in a sport club, really (but reeeeeeaaaally) far away from the center. Beautiful and full of nature
No kitchen. Has parking which was free. No obvious common room but I found a wifi lounge which had tables. It's basically some tidy rooms and showers as part of a sports event center. So if you want to go rock climbing or play badminton etc it would be awesome. Wifi was excellent.
The hostel is very out of the city however if you have the time the walk to the centre is very pleasant.
The rooms themselves were great-clean, comfortable, well furnished. The hostel website says they sell padlocks but at check in I was told they don't. The restroom facilities weren't great. There was only one private shower with a locking door at my end of the building & there were no shower curtains, so everything was wet. I would gladly pay a slightly higher rate if it meant hand soap at the sinks in the bathroom. Or maybe place signs warning people to bring their own into the toilets with them
I stayed in the 10 bed female dorm and it was lovely. The bed was comfortable and the room was large and there were no bunk beds.
The hostel was very clean.. But the location is not so good.. we arrived in Brussels at night after 10 o'clock and we walked along the highway a looot.. and there was a receptionist who can only speak French.. i believe in the morning there will be an English-speaking receptionist.. On the second day, we needed to leave early in the morning(like 8:00), but the reception opens at 8:30 and the breakfast starts at 8:45..

Far away, but awesome for the athletic type!
Bad location Impolite pepole: impossible to sleep very noisy You have to pay for everything
Strange hostel... Good things: It s situated in a green area with a lot of trees and grass. The club gives life to the environment. Bad things: Nobody at the comon area never. Almost nobody in my floor, poor atmosphere... The staff is not prepared for the hostel, as they work mainly for the club. One of the women was very bad with me without reason.
It was great. Very clean and friendly front desk staff!
A very nice hotel out side of Bruxelles. Just a 10min walk from the subway that takes you directly to the heart of the city. Rooms are clean, the wifi connection is great! Breakfast is decent and the staff is nice and helpfull. Not a 5 star hotel. But a nice place to catch a break if you are on the move!

Wow, what a strange place. It's a hostel on the grounds of a massive sports park (gyms, soccer fields, indoor courts). I've never seen anything like it. Would be amazing if I had come here looking to play sports. The hostel itself was pretty quiet, not really a place where you will meet a lot of people (no real common area) and its way outside the city. But its also on the edge of the immense Sonian forest, which renting a bike (check out De Woudpoort) and riding to Waterloo is a must!
I was very disappointed with the limited check-in hours. Very inconvenient!
From the photos of the website, Auberge 3 fontaines seemed like a nice, lively hostel. Well, it wasn't, at all! We had to enter the hostel from a sports center, which meant a smell of sweat welcomed us. The hostel itself is just two corridors with (quite clean) rooms and smelly, dirty 'changing room bathrooms'. It felt like a prison. The 'cafeteria' is just a sports canteen. I have been to lots of hostels in the whole world, and this was definitely the most cheerless and strange place ever.
