The hostel is very clean and with in walking distance from the center, there are a lot of information on the activités to do with other travellers (walking tour, pub crawl, etc.) and that's appreciable. It is a very quiet place as well so people are enclined to watch out and be quiet as well, in the morning for example. Nice !

Nice hostel, nice and friendly staff, the only thing I did not like was that in a six person room there are only two outlets ( to charge phones/cameras ). breakfast finish too early ( 9:30 ). good place if you have a bike, because the center is 10 min biking.


good location but old, run down bulding and facilities, poor breakfast.


Wi-Fi wasn't working, the bathroom was dirty, bar was closed at 11pm


A little far away from the city, but definitely manageable since Brugges is so small. The rooms were nice minus the paper thin walls and the obnoxiously loud people staying in the room next to us. Good value for the money, easy to find and free breakfast.


No wifi in the rooms.


Staff were friendly and very helpful. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and well mantained

Good clean hostel. A little far from the main attractions but still quick enough to do by foot. A bit hard to find at night. But the staff are friendly and everythings nice and clean. My only comments are there are only 2 powerpoints to a 6 bed dorm.


The hostel isn't right in the center, but the distance is reasonable. The place was clean, quite institution-like, but decent anyway. The breakfast consisted of white bread, cereals, fruit and juice or coffee/tea. The wifi didn't work in rooms and the lockers were in the lobby. All in all, it wasn't bad, but not one of those hostels which you will remember after leaving either.


This hostel looks like a prison, feels like a prison, and has the atmosphere of a prison. The only other individuals I saw while staying there were groups of 20+ Flemish students. Staff was very rude and unhelpful. Would as questions, and would be blatantly ignored while they texted or read magazines. Rooms are decent, but any movement on your beds is extremely loud. 15 minute walk from Brugges, and 30 minute walk from the train station. No lockers inside the rooms.


Quiet location a short walk (20 mins) from the town and train station. Good breakfast. Stayed in 6 bed dorm which was comfortable. Not a typical travellers hostel as there are lots of groups.


Location is great, close to the city center. It is quiet at night. The busservice from the station to the hostel is poor and expensive, so if you are able to walk 15 minutes with your luggages, you probebly arrive earlier. Staff is okay, breakfast is okay. But hey, we are not in a hotel, so for the price you payed, the managed very well. Bathroom is good, clean, Rooms are big! Sound of birds in the morning, so, when you're looking for a peacefull night after a busy day in the city, choose this


very clean, kind, blackfirst good.


There were no lockers in the room and you have to lock the rooms yourself, so you have to hope that your roommates will lock them when they leave. However, after 11 they lock the gate to the property and you can only get in with your key. The area is about a 15-20 min walk out of the city center, but not too bad. And it doesn't feel unsafe. The hostel itself is lacking atmosphere but it looks like with warmer days it could be more fun, there were a lot of outdoor activities.


Nice Hostel. Clean and okay for the money. The bad things I should mention are: 1) Wifi not working in the bedroom. It worked if you were lucky and didn't moved your phone otherwise it would stop. 2) When taking a shower you have to press a button every 20 seconds or less to keep the water flow otherwise it stops. In cold temperatures this is a very huge problem. Breakfast awesome.


Nice hostel. A bit far though from the train station. But it is located just outside the city centre. the place is clean and comfy. Showers are decent. Staff is friendly:)


This hostel is extremely clean, nice, and the staff is very friendly. If you are looking for a cheap, nice, clean place to stay, this is the hostel for you. However, there are a few things to be aware of-- Bruges is not very large, but this hostel is a bit far from the city center. It's not a big trek or anything, but it is a bit of a walk. Additionally, there is only WiFi in the common area of the hostel, not in the rooms. Other then those 2 small things, this place is great!


This hostel has no signage from the road and is down a long driveway. Impossible to find especially at night. No wifi in rooms. The hostel is one of the most depressing hostels I've ever stayed in and I have been travelling for 10 months straight... no atmosphere, no effort put into the place to make it comfortable or cool place to be, it feels like a location you'd stay at a school camp... no food/shops nearby, 15 minute walk into town.


The hostel is perfect, if you want a low price and a good bed for sleep. Everything is very clean and the breakfast is very good.

I think the hostel is really nice and looks very safe. The only downside part is the location which is far from the center but since Bruge is quite small, you walk barely 20 minutes and you are already on the main square. The hostal is better than expected for the price you are paying and I definitely recommend it.
