We thought the staff were very friendly and helpful when we checked into the 2GO4 sister hostel, they provided good instructions on how to get to the hostel we were staying in, and they recommended what we should do, and see. The hostel was definitely small but it's modern look didn't make it feel cramped at all. The kitchen was plenty big to share with the other guests and to socialise in the evening, as was the small couched area. The location is just excellent! It couldn't be closer

The only bad issue is that the luggage room and the check in is in another building, 10 min far from where we stay. I had a problem with my key and had to wait half an hour until someone could be there.

Pros Location: The hostel wins because of its location. Right in the old town center, very close to Brussels Central station. Rooms: clean, spacious, everyone gets a locker. Cons Room keys: the keys doesn;t works very well, one has to keep trying for 5 mins, if the y doesnt work at all then one has to go to 2go4 hostel which is 1 km from this hostel since this hostel doesn't have any staff

The hostel has the best location ever, right beside the Grand Place. The room was really clean with a private toilet/shower room per dorm. Bed clothing and towels were provided, as well. They also provide hot chocolate, tea and coffee in the mornings. The only disadvantage is that you have to go to the 2go4 hostel, 15 minutes walking, to do the chheck-in.

Alright, so I'll explain the rating. Staff was knocked down one because as the description says, theres no snaff at the hostel. The people at the check in hostel are quite helpful though. Atmosphere suffered because the hostel has two common rooms: A kitchen and a little lounge. No drinking is allowed in the hostel and theres some quiet music playing. Overall, the place was pretty modern. A nice kitchen with great bathrooms in the dorms. i didn't see anything which wasn't clean. I would return

Excellent location, right next to the grand place and clean!! There is a no alcohol policy - it didn't seem to be a Hostel where you meet lots of fellow travellers and party. If you are looking for a more social stay you should go to the 2go4quality Hostel, which is the partner hostel, where you have to check-in anyway, as there is no reception at Hostel Grand Place. it's very small and there is a tiny common area right next to the entrance but as I said, the location is awesome!

Incredible location! Just off the main old town square. Although this hostel is not staff/reception, you just use security keys to get in and out. Therefore we had to check in at another of the hostel group's locations, about 15 mins walk from this hostel. I love walking, but with heavy packs it would have been good to know in advance. Thanks!

It is very near Grand Place, about 30 seconds?? you have to cover bed sheets and billow cover, but it was clean. A Staff who work at 2Go4, which is the place you have to check in, is very unkind. but others are good resonably. At Grand Place hotel, there is no staff except morning, so you have to go to 10 minutes walk "2Go4"hostel for help.

The reception is 10 minutes away from the actual hostel. It may be close, but not when you are carrying your baggage. If you have a problem you will need to walk again to the other hostel because there is no phone available to call there. No kitchen also, you will need to walk again.

The best location, right off the middle of the Grand Place. Checking in at the other hostel is no problem because its actually really close to a metro stop. The only problem is that checkout is 11 and there is no place to store bags.

The hostel don't have a reception, it seems to be OK, but it isn't. Unfortunately, we had an incident in our room and we didn't have someone to talk to or ask for help. Anyone can bring anyone into the room, it is really worrying. On the day after we said to the reception (at the other building) what had happened the night before and then they gave us the right orientation about what we were supposed to do when something like that happen. If the hostel had a reception it would be much better.

The location is excellent. The only negative point is that there is no common area such as a bar or something. If you're looking for a hostel to know new people, it wont be the best choice.

Check-in was at a separate location which was slightly out of the way for us, but the lady at reception was very welcoming and extremely helpful; she provided us with a map of Brussels as well as a map for Bruges where we were heading the following day. The location of the Grand Place Hostel is the best! You literally get out the door and are just steps away from Grand Place. The hostel was very clean and felt safe and cosy. Would love to stay here again, although I wish breakfast was available.

Great location!!!

you truly cannot beat the location of this hostel, it is literally at the Grand Plac near everything so if that is what is important to you, this really can't be beat. the showers were ice cold the second day, but fine the first day, so I'm not sure about that. there is no front desk here, so you kind of have to get out all your questions when you go to pick up your keys at the other location.

it´s a really good location, the main front desk is in another place, but other than that it´s perfect.
