The hostel was fine, good wifi, kitchen very good, nice breakfeast... But it is far from downtown...you have to take the subway to visit any intersting place so you have to have that in mind... It wasn´t a great experience for me cause they put me in a room that opens to the backyard, so if you wanna go to the bathroom at night and it´s cold or raining it sucks!


We stayed in a private, all-girl building separate from the main building with the reception, which was nice. However, there was only one bathroom for our whole floor (which was 3 rooms, not sure exactly how many people). Therefore, if someone was using the shower, we couldn't use the toilet, mirror, or sink, since it was all in one room. It also didn't really seem like they cleaned the bathrooms very frequently. But - the wifi was very reliable, it was quiet, and the breakfast was decent!


Nice Hostel, a little bit far from city center, but almost in front of a subway station. So it was not a problem.


Nice staffs and so clean. but Not good location


There was a stench of bleach and/or sewage depending on which area of the hostel you found yourself. The staff wasn't friendly. I've stayed at better hostels for the same price.


My girlfriend and I were only here for one night but it was a great place to stay. It is located right next to the underground which you can get into town, etc. The room was clean and staff were friendly. Computers downstairs with free Internet. Wifi didn't work in our room for some reason but did in the chill out lounge. Yes would definitely recommend.


I liked this hostel and would stay again. My only issue is both nights people were able to somehow get into our room when they weren't staying there. Not sure if they were confused or what. All in all breakfast was good, beds were comfy and it was easy to catch the metro into the city


It was okay, bit overpriced for what you got and the beds were a bit rough to sleep in, the common area was lovely and it was situated very close to the station although trains were as regular to that station without having to switch


Very far from Grand Place and the Brussels City Centre, but run by very friendly staff. Standard breakfast with bread, cereals, and coffee.


Very nice hostel. Great facilities and cleanliness, as well as helpful staff. Breakfast included. Location is not far from downtown, it is walkable. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the shower which was on for a few seconds and you had to keep pressing the botton to turn it on, very annoying, specially when it's cold and you freeze every time is goes off, and it's very hard to wash girls' long hair like that. Other than that, awesome.


The worse hostel I've ever stayed. Everything was very dirty, stained sheets and the bathrooms were awful (no showers just water water dripping from a pipe!).


Perfect place


It was relatively fair for me, given the price. I slept comfortably and enjoyed the convenience of its facilities. The fact that it's just beside the metro makes everything easier for me! I could just drop off my things in the locker room after check out and explore. Then once I needed to go, the hostel is just a metro away! I came in late, like 11pm. The street was a bit dark. But I never experienced any kind of threat. The street was practically empty. There's also a nearby supermarket!

I stayed in the facility down the road. In general the hostel lacked a feeling of warmth which is irrelevant to the good facilities. Having the breakfast was great.


The area is a little rough at night so lone travellers be on your toes. Once inside the hostel there are free lockers and a luggage room. The shower opposite room 003 has the best shower head fyi. The communal area is nice. There is a supermarket behind the hostel called OK it is by far cheaper than the deal haize in the corner. When you come out of the hostel turn left (away from the metro) walk to the corner then turn left again, the pharmacy on your right. Continue straight

Traditional back-packers hostel with adequate facilities. Next to the metro, otherwise pretty much in the middle of nowhere. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere in the common room/bar. Breakfast of cereals, toast, jam, coffee, juice was fine.


Not as expected. Staffs not much friendly and the worst part they give you the bed sheet pillow case n you have to put it by yourself.


Probably the worst hostel I've stayed at. Showers basically spew water from a pipe for ten seconds at a time, no lockers, mattress is unsupportive, they don't verify tags in the luggage room, and they don't dress the bed (you have to put on the sheets they provide). Far better hostels for cheaper elsewhere in the city.
