This was my favorite hostel of the whole trip, seriously so nice! You have to check into a different office but it is only a 10 minute walk to where you are staying and you can check out there. I would come back in a heartbeat. It was extremely clean and updated. Beds were so soft, wifi is fast, staff are super nice. Grand palace is literally in the heart of everything and right off the square. Super cheap as well. Also have a free walking tour of Brussels which was awesome! Book here!!!!

It would be better to check in online rather than have to carry cases/bags all the way out to Go2 Hostel from Central Station and then all the way back to Grand Place. Taxis were hard to come by and couldn't not have completed the journey. When my group arrived we were tired after a long journey and the prospect f having to wait for30 mins to pick up luggage that had already been dropped was a pain. Not knowing our way around the city, having only just arrived didn't help. More reception staff !

Location was great, facilities and everything were fine. There is no staff at this location, they are all at the second location. Because of this, lots of people behave stupidly and make a lot of noise or get too drunk and bother everyone else. I got woken up every night between 3 and 5 am, and one night a guy peed on the floor next to my bed and then climbed into my bed and refused to get out so I had to move. There was nothing I could do because there was no staff.

The roomate was much better than i expected. If you need to charge many ítems i would suggest you bring with you an adaptor. You also need to bring with you your own lock!!! The fact that the check in is some place else (its the 2go4 reception area) is unfortunate if rainy like un my case and its really annoying if at the end of your stay you need to use the lugagge room because its located at the 2go4. Apart from that, i had a really great stay.

The hostels great central location compensated for the extra leg work of needing to check in at the reception remote from the place itself. Facilities were excellent; very well equipped kitchen; spacious dorms, comfortable beds, good lockers; nice bathrooms; perfect cleanliness throughout. Unusual, slightly surreal, atmosphere in kitchen and shared space: big screens... two in one room...showing nothing but models on catwalks. But, basically ok. Very helpful staff... great.

An excellent hostel at an excellent location. Very clean and beautifully renovated. good showers and comfy beds. Had a great time. * the lockers only work with a relatively big padlock. I would stay there again

Confusing to be booked into one address then transferred to another although the second location was much more convenient.Could have been informed of the definite address although I appreciate it was necessary to go to the original to book in.

Excellent location! It was a little hard to find after I checked in at the other hostel because there was no sign except for name written on the door. Other than that I had a great time and enjoyed my stay. Wifi was excellent which was great because they didn't have computers as a backup.

check-in is on another building, you have to walk 3 blocks after checking in (carrying your luggage), not nice

Excellent location (the hostel at least, the check-in place not so much). Very clean facilities, keycard entry, lockers in rooms. Literally right on a main square, excellent place to be for night life and food and tourist watching. Not so much a party hostel as could be, but a chill lounge and kitchen area to hang out at. Of course, it's Belgium, so it's better drinking awesome beers around town anyway! Showers were hot!

Good hostel, great location. It just doesn't have reception and the shower is not good.

Amazing location. So convenient and close to Grand Place. Very easy accommodation where you come and go with decent security measures.

Grand Place was more of a really well located dorm that an hostel. The bathrooms, rooms and common areas were clean, the wifi was good but I was really uncomfortable with the fact that there was no front desk (hopefully the Information center is right at the corner). If you're a woman travelling alone I would suggest you book a female-only room. The common room/living room was great and beautiful, too bad it closed at 23h (like the kitchen).

Great hostel ! Couldn't have a better location !

Very central location. A bit inconvenient with different location for check-in. The walk with suitcase in on the pedestrian road isn't too easy for wheeled luggage but it's common for most places in the old town.

Very clean and safe, but the atmosphere is really odd. You can't have alcohol in the kitchen or the lounge are but there is no one there to check anyways. I had to get out at the North train station and walk to the check in location just to then walk all the way to the central station where the hostel is. not convenient

Location is great! The room and bathroom are clean and have all basic needs met. Heads up: if you bring your own lock for the lockers provided, make sure it's a thick one. The one I have is a little thinner and anyone could get into your locker by just turning the handle. Didn't interact with the staff much since they were at a different location but when I checked in they were friendly.
