This hostel is pretty much a bar first and foremost but the rooms are nice, good value and all the facilities you need. En suite bathroom, strong free wifi, free towels. However, there is a hidden city tax of about €3 a night not included in the Hostelworld price so watch out. €4 breakfast isn't worth it. It's also pretty noisy at night but that was no bother for us

We took a 6 bed room, which was ensuite. The bath was terrible, because you have to pull a button to get 10 seconds water. That wouldn't be such a big deal, if it had hot water! When we put it to hot, the amount of water was so small that we had to take cold showers. The bathroom didn't have any carpet, also, so it got completely wet. Towels are charged (1 euro) but don't smell so good. Breakfast has only the basics (costs 4 euro). The location is amazing, as well as the bar downstairs.

Perfectly located in the centre, still easy to reach by car, parking right in front. Nice and big bar on the ground floor, as far as we could see the last one open on a thursday night in Bruges. Some rooms where not available because it had rained in them. Our room was dry though. Bathroom in the room, but can't be locked. Entrance door locked at night, had to knock for half an hour to get out. Really nice staff, very helpful, entertaining when couldn't sleep because of horrible roommates.

They offered us private room in nearby hotel with the canal view which was a good deal.

Nice little hostel. Well placed for a short walk into town. Lots of parking near by and the underground carpark was only 9euros for 24 hours. Great bar area. Bedrooms were very basic with no lockers in the rooms. All in all a decent spot to spend a couple of cheap nights exploring Bruges

DO NOT STAY HERE. There are no lockers in the rooms (and only 8 lockers for the whole hostel), the showers are disgusting - they are mouldy and clearly haven't been cleaned properly in a long time, the wifi cuts out constantly and every time it comes back you have to check in at Charlie rockets on Facebook again... And the noise from the bar downstairs is super loud.

The staff were helpful and the hostel is in a great central location. Rooms were basic with shared bathrooms, but were clean and comfortable. Towels in the room would have been nice.

The bar was too loud with open windows, but if you close them you do not get enough air at night.

We stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm, the bunk beds were held together with random bits of wood. My mattress sagged in the middle. The room was insanely hot and it was noisy outside until about 4 am, so we had to choose between not sleeping for the heat or not sleeping for the noise - there was no air conditioning. The drains in the showers smelled foul, and the floor was grimey and needed to be cleaned. You have to pay for use of lockers, which is ridiculous. And the toilets had no hand soap in them

Great location, better then St Christopher's, I was tossing up between the 2 and glad I went with this one. Wifi works in room which is important. There's some noise from street but really can't complain about that. Good sized room. I only wish staff were more informative and helpful, I found one brunette lady quite rude and I wish when you arrive they'd give info on facilities available and where, like about walking tours, wifi, laundry and ask if you want any info.

Seems to be main focus is on the pub downstairs and almost no attention is paid to the hostel upstairs. Bad smells and I woke up covered in massive itchy bites

This is an excellent hostel that doubles as a great pub (downstairs). The atmosphere and staff are both top notch and I don't really have anything negative to say. Keep it up!

This hostel is in a great location in the centre of Bruges. There is a great bar attached to the hostel and it has a good atmosphere. The facilities are good and everything is well-maintained. There is free overnight parking on the road outside. A slight negative was that the rooms didn't have lockers.

Showers are on rediculous timers of about 4 seconds - constantly have to push the button, not ideal when you've been travelling

The location is perfect and prices are cheap, building is old and need a little bit of renovation but on the other hand there's a rock bar downstairs so it's supposed to be a little rugged I guess :D a bit noisy at night but still slept well :) showers were annoying, had ro pres the button every two seconds

The hostel Charlie Rockets is above a bar with the same name. The atmosphere is very nice as you can have a beer with friends downstairs and then just go upstairs to your dorm. The breakfast is cheap (4€ only) the the hostel provides you with a nice map of the city with some nice insider tips. Only drawback is the bar because it results in some drunk people screaming on the street.

It would probably be better for older guests. There's a bar/pub at the hostel and that's pretty cool. The location saves this place it is actually so good (2 min walk from anything) You had to pay for lockers though. There was also no kitchen and no real common area. No wifi in the room only at the pub
