Personal not friendly.

The hostel is a complete dive. It's really horrible and no one should stay here. It is above a noisy, trashy bar and the staff are so rude. You don't get a key, you have to ask for one whenever you come in. There are no lockers or security in rooms. The window in ours couldnt be shut or locked. The rooms are filthy and the bathrooms are dirty, the toilets had holes in the doors. People smoke and do drugs in the rooms and the beds were falling apart and clearly unsafe. It was completely vile.

My friend and I definitely stayed in a room meant for maximum 4 people, but it was a 6 bed dorm. We had a problem with a couple of the people staying in our room, but management handled the situation really well and offered to move us if any of the issues continued. I liked the bar downstairs-the beers were not too expensive and it had a really fun vibe! I wasn't a fan of the shower/bathroom facilities, but it was doable for a few days' stay.

Excellent location, friendly staff, and good WiFi connection. No lockers in room which made my six bed dorm very cramped when everyone's luggage was taking up floor space.

Without having high expectations, we still payed 55 euro's for one night. The bed was nicely soft but without pillows and the blankets where for mid-winter (bloody hot). The noise of the doors inside of the building is terrible and the noise of midnight showers from other guests where even worse, it was like showering nect to my head. The breakfast wasn't worth the money, just some bread with some easy stuff and dead boiled eggs. This said, the overall rate for me is a 3/10.

Bad: No secure lockers in room! Bathrooms smelled very very strange, like mold or old pipes. Beds were fine but floors, walls, pretty dirty. Amazing: However! Location was amazing, really close to all things Brugge. Staff was extremely helpful, kind, and sweet. Plus the downstairs bar with pool tables, tvs, and wifi was a great addition to a backpacker looking to socialize or just relax. Overall would recommend if you're not too fussy about the locker business.

Great hostel. Our room was large and comfortable in a great location. There were no lockers, but the dorm was only 6 people so it wasn't too bad. I accidentally left my passport there and the staff was more than helpful in getting it back to me. The bar downstairs is fun, we watched a World Cup game there. They do have a 4 am curfew but that's not too unreasonable. Good hostel over all!

The hostel is very "hostelish" :) rooms with beds and shared toilets and showers on each floor. The bar at the first floor is really cool with nice beers and a great ambience. It seemed to me to be the only bar to open at night in the city center so it is cool for a beer and a nice chat after a long day in lovely Bruges. Confort OK Clean OK Value for Money OK We were 4 and they gave us a 4 bed room instead of the 6 bed dorm that we payed for !!!! Nice touch !! Thnks !

The hostel is nice, especially the four person bedroom. First and foremost, its a bar. The guests get loud, so if looking for a place to just sleep it may cause some issue. Overall prime location, and a great atmosphere to meet new people

Friendly atmosphere, but on both nights we were there, we were awoken at about 4am by people shouting outside our door and even trying to open it; this went on for about an hour!

Always love staying here! such a nice place and the staff are very helpful and accommodating. You are a 3-5 minute walking from the Grote Markt and they also have amazing live music on the weekends! I will definitely stay here again upon my return!

Perfect location. Walking distance to all attractions~ our church of lady, St John hospital, Picasso expo, diamond museum, burg, belfry, markt, Simon steveplein, langestraat, choco story, friet museum, minnewater park. Would be great if there's locker beside the bed in the room. The warm water in the shower is not stable and the pressure is really too low, in the end wasting more time for a quick shower. The price is definitely worth it.

The hostel was in a good location, in the city center. There was no locks on the doors of the dorms and no warm water when you try to take a shower.

No hot water for the 2 days we were there. Not run out, just wasn't working. Staff seemed well aware of this when we told them. Not acceptable. Do not stay here until this is fixed. Location is good. Breakfast was good. Staff were good. No secure lockers in or near dorm room.

Great atmosphere in a great location, with helpful and friendly staff. Bathroom smelt a little like urine but it was clean. Would definitely recommend this hostel.
