Very clean, fantastic location. Rooms were airconditioned which was perfect for a 40 degree day! Thank you.

Slightly inconvenient having to check in a different place but that's made up by the perfect location of this hostel. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean with good facilities - especially having a plug socket next to each bed! Overall I would definitely recommend!

The only thing I didn't like was you have to check in at another location that is quite far away from the hostel, I didn't like That place to store luggage at this facility other than that it was great.

Super location only a stone's throw from Grand Place. Perfect place to stay for exploring Brussels.

You have to check-in at their main location (close to the Bruxelles-Nord train station) and then walk 10-15 minutes to actually get to your hostel. They're strict about checking in after 3, so it's a bit inconvenient. Wifi is terrible throughout the hostel during peak times, so I wouldn't really rely on it. It works, but not consistently. All that being said, the location is AMAZING and the staff is super friendly. Shoutout to the awesome woman that cleans the rooms. Would 100% recommend.

Facilities were adequate, beds comfortable. I believe you are paying a bit extra for the location (very close to Grand Place). The hostel is very discretely located, found that some other guests had a hard time finding it. Kind of strange to walk from close to Nord Station to check in to Grand Place to stay, but I didn't think it was a huge deal. Brussels is very accessible in my opinion, so if you're not interested in being close to the party, this isn't the place for you. Plenty of space

The location was absolutely fantastic! The room was quite clean and the bed was incredibly comfortable for a hostel!

Not bad to stay and sleep, but the reception is actually at another hostel further away from the city centre. This brings some inconveniences, such as limited access before or after your stay, when you want to drop your luggage. Not really any activities organized by staff, which decreases interaction with others.

It was weird that you had to check in somewhere that was a little far away. It was nice we had small rooms and good wifi. The bathrooms smelt like sewage the entire time. The showers were fine, but you had to hold down a button for water to come out. Overall good and safe stay.

Great! Wifi worked in the room. Each bed had an outlet and light. Bathroom had a bad smell though? I believe that it was somehow sewage even though we were on the fourth floor. Clean linens included and a towel! Room keys powered provided but the lockers only work if your lock is thick not the skinny loop kind. Overall, great experience!

The salon, kitchen, room, and bathroom were all excellent. I especially loved the decor in the salon. The rooms are clean and the bunk beds are sturdy. The location is unbeatable. We had a great stay.

Very clean and great location. Having to check in at the other location was not bad and the woman at the front desk was very nice. The only downside was that as a solo traveller it wasn't a great place to meet people at all.

Having the check-in 10 minutes away was no big deal. The location is absolutely perfect though, right at the grand place and beside a tourist info office (which will print things if you need to!). Definitely would stay here again!

Fantastic location, right in the center of the city and many of the tourist spots. Great decor. Bathroom was small, otherwise this place was great!

The location cannot be beat. Right on Grand Market! However, having to check in at a different location was very inconvenient. The place where you check in serves two hostels, so it is very crowded and busy and there was only ever one person at the desk. Other than that, the beds were fine, the place was clean, and the location was perfect.
