We booked two weeks earlier than we arrived and we paid the deposit already. However, when we arrived there, they told us that they were full and sent us to another hotel. The another hotel is super old and we can't get wifi in our room. The worst part was that the sheets were broken and there was something red like nail polish on it. Worst experience I've ever had.
The only good part about the location was that it was so close to the train station. Walking into the center of Brussels only took about 15 minutes but it felt like such a bad and unsafe area around the hotel that we chose to take a taxi instead... and I'm a student traveling on a tight budget so that says a lot! The carpets had stains all over them and the bedding looked like it was 30 years old. There were holes in our sheets and no protective sheet or cover at all around the mattress.
We were told upon arrival tht we got a double bed room instead of e twin private we had booked for. Be aware tht the cost of the first night will be charged via credit card. Their ensuite room actually didnt hv a bathroom attached, but instead a separate room across e corridor. Apart from tht, other things worked just fine. Room conditions OK (except tht e hairdryer was broken). Clean bathroom plus hot shower. WiFi not very stable but not bad either. Good location near e train station.
I didnt like the fact when i booked with hostel world the instructions were that the hotel cost to be paid on arrival in cash. To discover that the owner had already debited my credit card without my authority for the whole amount these were not the terms sent by hostel world. Also there was an extra charge of 12 euros for tax which was not mentioned on the booking with hostel world. All in all a disappointing experience.
