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!

As a female that travel by myself, I would not recommened this hostel for the reason that you don't meet people. Everyone is for themselves and look weirdly at you if you speak to them. The staff felt arrogant, it was a problem with my room (4 dorm but we were 5 in it and I was the last one that came there and didn't have a bed) but they didn't tell my anything. He just sat there and looked at me until one of the girls in my dorm decided that she could move. DON'T STAY HERE

Was a little difficult to locate but a fair hostel with a decent breakfast and a great place to watch big events on their large projection screen.

We only spent one night at the hostel and enjoyed our time there. Shared toilet and shower facilities were very good and secure. However, although breakfast was included in the price, we felt that this could have been better (more variety eg fruit etc.)

This hostel is ok. Out of city centre, so takes a bit of time by transit. Not much atmosphere, staff is just ok. Not kitchen, which is inconvenient, especially with the lack of restaurant choices nearby. They will try to charge you for everything.

This hostel was really welcoming and the staff were eager to help with any question or problem you had. We were backpacking and stayed in a few hostels and the kitchen facilities in this hostel were the best we found, very easy to cook cheap meal. Would defiantly recommend especially as SO close to the metro station, literally across the road!

It was a little bit far from the town center and the girl at reception was not really helpful. But the buildings were silent and the rooms spacious so that was really great. I think it was a little bit too expensive for the quality of the services they offered but in the end we had a nice stay and got to know some people there.

Very close to the metro and only a short ride in to the city. Wouldn't take too long to walk to the city either. With everything that was included, this was definitely a great place for the price!

Ok place. Cleaning staff walk in while your sleeping. Big bar/kitchen is good.

The atmosphere was great and the common area was a pretty good bar in the evenings with Belgian beer. The quiet rule posted everywhere on the walls for after 2200 was not enforced at all and people kept me up most of the night which sucked.

It was not close to city center and as a girl traveling alone I did not feel safe in the location at night, so I came back to the hostel very early. WiFi does not work in the rooms and is slow in public areas. Staff was very helpful in giving directions and answering questions.

Very friendly staff and a great breakfast. The shower and bathrooms were always clean. No lockers in the room. The hostel is located right by the Myron which is great. It's about a half hour walk from Grand Place. Overall, I had a positive experience and would recommend.
