I really liked the big kitchen and fridge, but someone repeatedly stole my items from the fridge. The hostel was clean enough, but the bathrooms could have used more attention. My main issue was that the glass doors facing the courtyard were broken and didn't lock, so anyone could walk into the room and the smell of cigarettes was always present in that particular room.

Nice and big hostel. Kitchen was very big, with lots of facilities. Just a short walk to the centre, so very conveniently located. The bedrooms, toilets and shower rooms are well kept and clean. Nice bar area and outdoor seating area, which is great for meeting new people. Lovely people and good atmosphere.

Friendly staff, really good wifi, free drink at the bar during the evening of arrival and a breakfast buffet. Really close to the subway station, and is a short journey from the centre of Brussels. We stayed in another building compared to the main hostel, but it was a short walk across the road. Clean sheets ad bedding were given to us, the only bad thing was the shower was full of hair and the light flickered on and off.

Nice place, good atmosphere, if a little quiet. I personally met a bunch of nice people. The staff is very friendly. The location is not very central, but still very nice, next to one of the most impressive buildings in the city (I never learned the name). You can reach the center on foot, or on the subway which is only a minute away.

Great set up and value for money! My only criticism is thats it's a bit far to the city centre.

Security was good, bathrooms were clean & the water was hot enough, rooms were clean, breakfast was good except there was no coffee! The staff were friendly, the bar was nice, but maybe there could be group activities to meet other people, everyone kind of stayed to themselves. It was a bit of a walk to the city centre, but the metro was there. The free walking tour was great.

Location isn't the best about 25 mins walk from the centre. Overall nice hostel. But bar area is very big, people weren't really social. Breakfast was basic. Room was big enough, showers were good.

So easy to find, helps you get the hand of the metro system really quick in Brussels, helpful staff, reasonable bar prices, the bed sheets were clean and cute, nice patio, make sure you're up early for breakfast because the food does run out a bit! Security good and kitchen good, wifi worked fine! Would definitely be back!

this hostel suprised me a lot! I really enjoyed staying there and the location is super awesome, becuase you'll stay near to the famous Bazilika Sacré-Coeur and station is just 5 minutes walking. The price is really great, because room was nice, bathroom as well and with breakfast included. Really recommend it!

While the staff was friendly and the pizza delicious, the location wasn't up to par. We did get a private room, which was a lovely surprise and the beer available was delicious! Just be sure to check your Brussels stops and make sure they are nearby!

Soooooooo hot in the rooms perhaps invest in fans so people can sleep

It was a pretty basic hostel I would say. No air conditioning in the rooms so we had to keep the window open and the terrace was quite loud. The showers never gave hot water and they were weak. Breakfast was basic but good! I was in Brussels for two nights so the hostel worked well for me because it it 30 seconds from the nearest metro.

Stayed here because it was close to a music festival. Not very close to the city center but easily accessible by metro. The door to the courtyard of my room didn't lock so anyone could walk in. Breakfast was good enough, bar was nice with decent prices.
