It was the best one so far. I loved the pub as a lounge and they have computers for you to use whenever you want. The staff is very friendly and they give you good advices about what is going on in the city. The breakfast is good and the hostel is very organized. The location, however, is not that good. It's about 40 minutes from the city centre, but there is a subway station right on the corner. I would definitely recommend this hostel! thank you
Several of the staff were standoffish, but two men were so helpful they made up for the others. It is a ways away from the city center, but very near a metro stop.
The hostel is nice and worth it the price, it's in front of two metro's stations and next to a really beautiful park (Elisabeth park). However, the conditions of the bathrooms are very poor, you have to press a button so the water (half warm, you can't choose the temperature of the water) comes out for a while and it finishes after every minute, then you have to press every time on the bath and this is not cool. The bathrooms were a little dirty, also the dressroom.
The hostel itself is very good despite some basic things every hostel should have: one plug to charge phones near each bed (not 2 plugs in a bedroom for 6 people), lockers for luggage inside the bedrooms.
This hostel was not nearly as bad as the reviews made it seem like it would be. The wifi only works in the bar/living room, but where it does work it is fast. Staff isn't exactly bubbly but they will help you with whatever printing or other needs you have. I actually found the bathroom and showers quite clean for a hostel. The neighborhood is working class, they unload trucks there. I didn't stay out past 9pm, and never found the street too sketchy. People kept to themselves in the common area.
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.
