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.


I visited Charlie Rockets for a stag do. There were 9 of us in total and we all loved the place. We arrived earlier than check in but they were happy to store our luggage and gave us access to all of the facilites etc. Great hostel and the staff were incredibly helpful!

bathroom is dirty. Staffs do not care about customers.


Great location; nice italian restaurant next door; friendly staff; comfy beds; couldn't get wifi in the room


The staff was very friendly but we could hear everything that was happening in the bar below us.


Atmosphere, location and staff were perfect. However, there was an unbearable smell in the room (Room no.1). It was a real challenge to sleep. Really unsupportable. I think the other person whom I shared the room was staying there for a long time and he had not so much time to deal with his 4 pairs of shoes. Just guessing. I think it is in hostel's responsability to take care of this inadmissible odour; cause they're selling these rooms to their clients; don't they?

I did not get a chance to tell the staff but I think the 1st bed on the left in Room 9 has bed bugs as I was covered in bites when I woke, two together which is a sign.


We stayed only for one night. The bathroom were really really bad specially the shower. The breakfast was ok. The location is really good. If you want only a bed for sleep it is a good hostel, but don't expect too much. Also the room was pretty dark and hard to get. The stairs doesn't help.


It needs maintenance asap! it is an improvised hostel, no good relation with the price.


Perfect location, Brugge is very small but this is right in the heart of it and very easy to find. Located on top of a pub which was lively and had a lot to offer (pool, music, beer) which is always handy. Was slightly pricey for dorms but one of the cheapest we could find so good for market prices. The rooms and facilities were good - pretty standard, had a nice window onto the street. Our room was overbooked though and they had to put a mattress out on the floor for the extra person


Brilliant location....great bar and pool room if a little pretentious. ...good bear......room average ...needs more storage..showers bit grubby....but for a short stay location, staff friendliness and the bar make up for the shortcomings.


This hostel is a cool place to hang out and even has live music on some nights, but the rooms were quiet. It is a good location within the old city walls. It's a longer walk from the train station, but worth it and on flat ground. Everything was great. Only downside was there was no kitchen, but there were discounts at the small restaurant downstairs. We would definitely stay here again.


Poor security - you just told staff what room number you were and they gave you the key, even if they didn't know you. No kitchen facilities as they have an Italian restaurant inside but I heard there was a microwave available in the restaurant kitchen. Expensive for not having breakfast included. It was often understaffed and you had to wait for the bartender to give you your key. Some staff friendly; others very blunt, short and unfriendly. Push-button shower lasted 3 seconds at a time!
