Very nice place, with a crazy night life. High recommended if you are young and full of energy.


The showers were a bit hard to control but OK once sorted, beds comfortable, had lockers and staff really helpful and nice. It is a city centre location and so there was a lot of noise from people and traffic on the street, but that wasn't their fault. Breakfast basic toast/jam/coffee but only €3 so very cheap for Bruges! Very good value for money overall.


It was what you paid for. The rooms were pretty small and weren't cleaned daily. There was no aircon so it was extremely hot. The breakfast wasn't amazing but it did the job. Was in a good location near the city square. You get what you pay for with this one


very good hostel, but the lady of the staff was not very nice, there is not a lot of good atmosphere, it is just a nice room with good view


Nice hostel! Rooms were quite small and there is the bar downstairs, so it's probably not a good choice if you want to get a good nights sleep as it can be quite loud. But I enjoyed my stay there!


Excellent location just off the main square. Clean comfy room and good amount of showers and toilets so never had to wait. Only downsides were no lockers in room, and 4€ for breakfast which was just toast - bit of a rip off. But otherwise had a great stay!


Very nice people very sweet hostel and prices is good

Very disapointed with this hostel as a whole. I would say the only ok thing about the hostel is the location, however Bruges is not a very big place so I'm sure most of the hostels are located quite near the centre. Currently traveling Europe and staying in hostels and this is definitely the worst yet by far, I would not recommend it to anyone. It is dull, not clean, bad atmosphere, basically no facilities. Once again do not stay here.


Hostel was good, the staircase was a bit narrow to be walking up with a backpack. The showers were awful though. You had to hold down the button in order for the water to work, making it extremely difficult to shower! Wifi was a bit iffy, and they constantly asked you to check in on Facebook to use their wifi which was not appreciated


Worried bout the bar underneath the rooms, but didnt bother me at all. Breakfast was good and rooms clean Just be ready to walk some tight staircases


Close to city center, far from train station. Located above a really cool but very noisy bar. Breakfast is extra and a rip off, 4 euros for toast, cereal and coffee. Beer at the bar is reasonably priced. To get to your room you need to go through a labyrinth of mystery doors and narrow, steep, winding stairs. Showering facilities are garbage; low flow shower head and single push button on a timer to get water. Washroom is as big as a broom closet. Staff is nice.


The place is nice and the staff were polite. However, I did not get any sleep at all the night I stayed there as there were drunken people on the streets making noise till 3-5am. At some point, they even threw glass bottle on our window. Other than that, there were also a lot of booming noises from nearby. Hence, I did not get any sleep at all.

We were able to check in early which was nice, the staff was really funny and friendly and the maps they had were really great! But when we were leaving to catch our train at around 5:30am we realized that the door downstairs had been locked from the outside.... Can you say fire hazard!!!!!!

The location was great, however the staff were very unfriendly and unwelcoming. Rooms were clean overall but they did not have lockers. Not a bad place to stay but overpriced for the facilities and service given.


Overall decent stay, best thing is the location and bar area. I didnt like the showers.


A good place to stay for this price. Good breakfast deal and location. Toilet service could be improved though. The pub/pool inside the local is an advantage.
