Bit of a wait to check in, receptionist wasn't very welcoming. Good location close to Brussels nord. 5 min walk to main streets. Bathrooms were a bit of a walk away. Good lounge area and kitchen downstairs but didn't seem very social when I was there. Great free walking tour


Well located hostel which did the job. Would definitely stay there again if I were to head back to Brussels.


very informative staff. great location.


This Hostel is always an option in Brussels!!

A very nicely designed and unique hostel in the northern part of the city. A short metro ride will get you there, or your legs if you don't mind the 20 minute walk from Midi Station. Staff were friendly, the kitchen facilities and free beverages were well organised and appreciated. Price is a bit steeper than other hostels in other neighbouring countries but it won't be a letdown if you go. As always if staying in a big dormitory bring a pair of ear plugs. Recommended.


The place is well located for going out by night. A metro station is closer to the place and the people in there are pretty nice. Clean rooms. I would definitely stay in there again.


The location is good, the staff are pleasant and it was in general a good experience. However, it did get a bit too warm in the rooms, so that could probably be looked into.


Great hostel with friendly and helpful staff. The location was good, just a short walk to the old town, and a few blocks from the train station. The atmosphere was laid back and the room was quiet. I enjoyed my stay and would return


I was quite amazed by the cleanliness level at this hostel. The employees are friendly and take good care of guests. The location is easily walkable from the Brussels North station. I loved their easy-to-read hostel map, and it has some really good recommendations.


Great hostel! We even got bumped up from a 6 bed to a 4 bed because we were staying a few nights. My only complaint is the crazy amount of cologne smelling air freshener being pumped into the shared area.


Awesome hostel really great atmosphere in the common room. Close to the train station the restaurant and party districts. Dorms are good with good sized bathrooms and plenty of extra bathrooms on floor. Staff were friendly and helpful when needed.


Only stayed one night but this place was great.


Awesome place, walkable distance to the main church, and to their downtown!


amazing hostel. so close to the centre of the city, only 10 min walk if that. clean spacious rooms with your own washrooms and washrooms in the hallways if yours is busy. definitely recommend


We enjoyed our stay in this hostel. We booked originally for a six bed mixed dorm, but were put in a four bed which was amazing. There are lockers in the rooms which is nice, but the room we were in was really really small so it was tricky if all four of us were in there at one time. The atmosphere in the hostel itself was alright, but the best part is that it's super close to the city center where all the cheap food and beer is.


This was a great hostel, very clean security was awesome, it's location was close to downtown. I wish there was a little more going on to make the guests mingle a little more but other then that it was a great stay!


The room was clean and there was a sink in the room. There were lockers in the room but not enough space to put backpacks, and not a lot of space to leave backpacks on the floor either. The reception area was good, but did not offer breakfast. The bathrooms and showers were nice and clean, though not extremely convenient to the room. The location was good and walkable to major areas and museums in the city.


The room was quite small for the number of people in it, but it was very clean.


The hostel was very clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable. The location is about a 15 min walk from all the typical tourist spots. Every bed has a plug, which is great. All the facilities felt new and well kept. My biggest issue is with the reception - they seem to get backed up at the front desk during check in. Perhaps more staff would be helpful; I waited nearly 20 min. The lockers are also small - only big enough for valuables. The common area is very well decorated, a great hangout.
