Good breakfast. Excellent location. Didn't realise towel was not included. Would stay here again based on location and atmosphere.

The atmosphere is best described as sleeping in a bar. It wasn't particularly clean and you have to check in with the bartender if you come or go. Plus it was very loud. Overall, I'm not a fan.


The hostel is fine and worth its price. The hostel bar was a bit loud during the night and the breakfast was too simple - even for a hostel.


perfect bar for people who enjoy Nirvana and Creed, exclusively


A great hostel in a perfect location.


Amazing! Nice clean and really amazing pub!


The hostel is located very near Burg Square, a central place in Bruges. The bunk beds are good and the room was clean. The bathrooms were a bit small but everything else was good. The bar/reception has a good atmosphere and the staff is nice.


The common area/bar/game area was amazing to hang out in. The rooms were simple but clean and nice.


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.


A very nice stay in this hostel


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!


Great stay in Charlie' Rockets. The showers were especially good ! And also the bar with all the beers... Yeah, definitely a place to go to enjoy Bruges ! Thank you Charlie Rockets' staff !

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 !
