Well located hostel. But the hostel dorm I was staying in was not very nice. There were bed bugs and some fungus like thing on the ceiling

Horrible!! The 24 hr reception is bogus. The "night security" who watches the desk until 8:30am put up a "back in 5 min" sign, after waiting 20 mins early in the morning, I went looking and found a sweet old man who works the kitchen who helped me. HOWEVER, i missed my bus! When I went back the "night security" was so rude, said it was my fault! I should have SEARCHED for HIM!! The staff at 8:30 were super nice though. Mattress practically didn't exist, I slept on the wood slots all night! Sick

This was a nice hostel to spend a couple of nights in. It wasn't in the city centre, but really close to a metro. Great that it was beside the Godiva factory! I liked that the hostel seemed quite eco conscious, with little things such as recycling facilities, info, and shower timers to encourage sustainable use. Friendly staff, a cute place, I would recommend for a short stay.

Located right by the Simonis metro stop which takes you right into the centre. Location itself is nice with cafés round the corner and a nice park to walk through. Spacious rooms. Good bathrooms and toilet facilities. Blackout blinds in the rooms and a heater. Free breakfast which is just cereals and breads with jam/marmalade and a toaster, free drinks. Free wifi in certain areas of the hostel, good connection and plug sockets about.

Hostel upstairs smelled like it was cleaned only with water. Maybe change your cleaning products.

I stayed in the other building and this made it difficult to interact with everyone there.Also it was really far away from the center, so you had to be back before 12 because that's when the metro closes. The bar in the hostel was good though. But the kitchen in the other building( not the main one) is small and not working very well.

Nice hostel just near the metro station. Everything is clean and safe. I stayed in the second building (girls building) and everything was ok. I've found it more quiet than the main building.The kitchen is perfect to save your money. Supermarkets are not far. The rooms are small and people respectful. Staff are very helpful. Breakfast is not varied but ok to start a day and there is always something even if you want to take it late in the morning. I recommend this hostel.

Nice Hostel very close to Simonis metro station. Everything is very clean, including the baths and the convivence room. There´s a nice bar where you can hang out with the others hostel´s guests drinking some Trapist beers... Free wi-fi internet and if you dont have a phone or tablet, there is two PC´s to use. Check-in after 11:00 AM.

the location isn't great. it is a 15+ min subway ride from the city center (which you have to transfer lines). but the place itself was very nice. good outside seating area and very fun bar with good people/staff inside. they def try and make up for the less-than-ideal location

definitely out of the city centre, it took 40 minutes to walk to the old town square through some streets which didn't feel overly nice. the hostel itself was nice, good breakfast, good outside area and a bar at night. good atmosphere for meeting other people. no lockers in the dorms which wasn't so great but the bathrooms were pretty clean. the location was definitely the worst thing but wouldn't let it stop me staying again.

Not super close to the city center but the metro line is right down the street and it goes straight there in 10 minutes. Restaurants nearby as well as grocery store make it easy to eat cheaply!

The hostel wasn't very close to the city centre but very close by metro and easy to access. The staff was friendly and provided us with adequate assistance. The hostel bar was a very lively place with a good selection of Belgian beers that made the stay extremely pleasant.

Very good for value. Very good breakfast. But there are limited lockers, not everyone got their own locker. But overall still very good.

Not the cleanest hostel I've stayed in. Breakfast was better than most. Very friendly staff and great location!
