Room was really awkward. There was space, but I feel like the layout of the beds could have been better. Room was also horribly warm at night. However, it had two sinks which was great. Bathroom was not signed well. Couldn't find it at first. Staff were brilliant, keep this up! Would return for this and this alone.


Nice rooms, located close to the center. Has a common area where you can buy beer for reasonable prices. C.a. Closes at 23.00 though...


Given the choice I wouldn't stay here again. There's no breakfast which is fine however the staff weren't that friendly. There was no map of Brussels on offer nor did they appear to have any hostel activities - which every other hostel I've stayed in does. It's a 15 minute walk to the main square of Brussels and a really long half hour walk from the Eurostar train station.

We do offer free maps of Brussels, Every day the hostel organizes twice a free walking tour! The Eurostar train station is not in the city centre so it is better to take public transport


Only stayed one night but the rooms were clean and beds were comfortable!


The perfect place to be!!


Perfect locations in case you wish to stay in the city center or close to the north station, which comes in handy when your plans include other cities. Very friendly staff, although very busy always working. Wishing they had more time to exchange words or travel tips with guests. My regards to Vincent and the free walking tours staff. Also the north station location is very close to a supermarket that accepts credit cards :)


The cleaner is sooo rude...

The location is good enough, just 3 to 5 mins walking journey to the city center. Staff is very kind and helpful. However, because the hostel is located right beside the main road, so it might be noisy during night time as the cars pass by frequently, especially on weekend night, this might disturb your sleeping. So try to avoid the room that facing to the main road, if you are 'easy-awake' person. Overall the hostel is good !


The hostel is well equipped and clean. There is a large common area. The only downside is that the hostel common area closes early (I think around 23) and Brussels isn't the greatest city in the world to continue the conversation elsewhere.


Really nice place, the directions to the hostel could use some improving but besides that everything was great


Too few staff it seemed. Issuers registering and massive attitudes when you had questions. Closing the only common area at 11pm is not fun for travelers socializing!


Loved this hostel. As a solo traveller I got to meet many people and it is in a great location with good wifi. The common area is a bit small and closes for a few hours during the day but other then that it was awesome!


I stayed in a 10 bed dorm. The atmosphere in the hostel lounge and the hospitality of the staff members were awesome. The bathroom and showers were in a good condition, very clean and a lot of space. The location is good, approx a 10-12 mins walk away from the city center. I strongly recommend this hostel for everyone who is going to Brussels!!


Nice and centrally located hostel. New staff every day - some were very nice, others were snappy and not friendly. Clean rooms, but no fan or a/c so it can get really stuffy at night on hot days. Good kitchen facilities. Pick up point for a free walking tour twice per day (you should really go, it's awesome).


This place has been recently renovated so the beds, lockers, bathrooms, kitchen, common area etc are all excellent. Slight lack of power outlets in some rooms though. Equal walking distance from gare du Nord and gare du midi as well. Issues: you have to pay in cash, they close the common areas after 11pm and in the middle of the day for cleaning, extremely noisy at night due to car traffic, no breakfast (but the kitchen is good), and they don't orangise events so meeting people is harder


Great location within walking to train and all sights. Wifi works great throughout, good atmosphere for meeting people, free walking tour.


Only stayed for one night, was happy to have a bathroom for just our suite instead of shared amongst the entire floor.


Great hostel. Nice dorms and bathrooms. But the lounge closes at 23:00 and the reception too. Leaving guests no choice but stay at your room or go outside.


Awesome location. Right in the middle of all the attractions and main centre, just a short walk to everything. Busy hostel with lots of tours. Nothing special but comfortable and good facilities


be kind to those who are passing through and haven't slept because of transit.
