The breakfest was simply bread, butter and jam, I think there should be more options from choosing. Could not sleep neither after 22:00 and around 08:00 at the morning because the loud, impolite, moron french students. Anyway the hostel itself is placed at good location, 5 min from the city centre with easy public transport connection.


I enjoyed my stay at this hostel, frienndly staff, good breakfast and good atmosphere in general

Os funcionarios nao foram gentis. Pedi informacao a um deles e nao obtive uma resposta satisfatoria. Alem disso, o quarto onde fiquei era proximo a uma festa que estava acontecendo no hostel naquela noite. Como resultado, nao consegui dormir por causa do barulho. Nao tive uma boa experiencia e nao volto ao hostel.


Front desk was extremely helpful as was the man helping with breakfast. All in all, good hostel


It was what I expected for a cheap youth hostel, though it wasn't as cheap as it could be booking a week before. The beds were comfortable enough, showers and bathrooms were pretty clean- basically the bare necessities, nothing special. It was good to have free breakfast, but it was just toast and muesli. I did appreciate the computers available, since I don't have a smartphone.


tho hostel was very nice, friendly and clean..the only problem was a group sleeping next to us, they were very rumouros, talking aloud ijn the corridors until 2 am. it was quite a problem cause people like to sleep at night, not always having parties..


All female building is not connected to main building which was extremely inconvenient considering the wifi only works in the main building. There was a cat living in the hostel which can cause problems for those with allergies. Free breakfast was sub par, milk was warm. No lockers in the rooms, so our stuff was left out in the open. Only one shower and toilet per floor which was also very inconvenient. Kitchen was not very useful and had no microwave. The staff was not very knowledgable.


Hello hostel wasn't the worst. It's acceptable. The location was really out of the way (but close to a metro stop) and the wi-fi was absolutely non-existent in the all-girls building, which is a good block away from the main building. The free breakfast was just bread and cereal and the kitchen in the all-girls building is pointless as there's only a sink. Shower was nice, everything seemed clean, & the bar was really cheap. Overall, it was a fine place to sleep, but nothing more.


The cleaning lady was always smiling and working hard. Everything was spottless. Very good. Too bad wifi didnt reach the room


The staff here was very friendly and helpful! The location is okay, but you must take a tram to get to the city and it stops running around midnight. The girl's dorm is in a different building which 1) seemed unsafe since there was no one staffing a desk there (there was a key system, but still...) and 2) did not do much for the atmosphere since there was not really a common room in this building. The breakfast was great, and the hostel was really clean. Overall, a good experience.


I was staying in the 'Miss Hostel' as I had selected a female dorm, which was in a different building 5 minutes away. The Wifi in the building unfortunately did not work, so I would have to go over to the main building to go on the internet. My room was the first room on the right as soon as you walked in. This meant that it was noisy with people coming into the building, I could hear people coming up the stairs as well as the noise from outside. Breakfast and atmosphere in bar was good.


Close to metro station, 5 min from the city center. Internet wifi works fast in the common area, that is also very big: you can either decide to stay apart to eat your meal or have fun drinking at the bar or playing fuss ball. Very clean and well-equipped kitchen (always open). Very clean toilets and hot shower. Kind staff.


Excelent Hostel


Location is a bit outside, but you can reach everything with the subway in 5-10 minutes. Hostel is noisy. You can hear when someone walks near your room. Room vibrates and is loud when subways (!) passes. No electric sockets near bed, so you cannot charge your mobile device near yourself at night (alarm!). Breakfast was poor. For a german no good bread, milk was warm, just some marmelade.


Nice place to stay at Brussels at a reasonable price. The wifi works just fine. The bathroom and the beds are all clean and comfy. Breakfast is nothing flashy, cereals and toasts and beverage. The common room/bar is a great place with awesome designs. If you don't like taking the metro, the location might be a downside for you but if you don't mind it shouldn't be a problem. By the way the female dorm is at a different building across the street, keep that in mind!

There was someone who snored in my room. I asked to change rooms and the receptionist at the time was very unhelpful and told me that I was just "unlucky to have someone who snored in my room and that that was the risk you take when you book into a hostel." He said there was nothing he could do as it was 1am. I highly doubt this. I went to sleep in the bar. I wouldn't recommend this hostel. It's very far from the center of town and my experience has put me off ever coming back here.


I really enjoyed my stay in the Brussels Hello Hostel! I stayed in a female 4 bed dorm and the room was really bright and spacious with a nice big window to air the room out if needed. The lounge room was a great place to go and relax after a long day of traveling - either for reading or using laptops/smartphones or just for general hanging out or eating. It was really great. The hostel is locked right near 2 Metro stations and is super easy to get to.
