When we first arrived the man on the reception was really friendly and helpful. He gave us a list of suggested places to visit, which having now visited we really enjoyed. The beds were comfortable and generally the room was clean. The few minor negatives were that the door on the balcony side was smashed and the breakfast was merely tea/coffee/juice and bread.


Would be great to have toaster for the breakfast.


Not very high standards of the rooms (a bit run down) and the hallway smelled of cigarette smoke, however considering the price it was well worth the money. The staff was also very friendly and welcoming, which made the stay quite enjoyable. It was also a pretty central location; we walked everywhere during our stay in Brussels.


The location was good... Only a 15-20 minute walk to Grand Place, but that is really what you're paying for. The hostel reception looks nice, but the rooms were very run down, dirty and ours stank of smoke. The rooms are a good size however. Breakfast was simple, but fine, bread, juice, cheese and croissants. You can lock the room securely. If you are coming, do not expect much, it is fine as somewhere to sleep, but you will not want to spend additional time there.


A nice hotel for a fair price.


Customer service at its baddest with rude staff. No rooms available at check-in time, neither when we came back from a night out which was agreed. At the (poor) breakfast we were told to leave the breakfast room before finishing because 'breakfast time is over'. I'm not visiting hostels frequently, but now I know why.

Worst experience in a hostel, They wanted to charge for more than what internet says, (and they did). they woulndt discount the percent of transfer for booking we did, claiming hostel world charged them for the service. No heat in the rooms, coldest night i´ve ever had. We arrived one day at 2 am, late at night, and the hotel was CLOSED, the recepcionist (rudest man i´ve met) showed up 30 minutes later rude and angry.
