This places reminds me of boarding school, the showers are like seeing pool showers and were blocked. Staff were really friendly and loved the slogans around the place


Really one of my only complaints is that the wifi was terrible. That should definitely be improved, especially if there are students there who need access to internet to do their studies.

Very clean, very safe, and not too far (1km) outside the old city. All-you-can eat breakfast is included.


The atmosphere in the hostel is amazing. The pub is realy nice also the bartender. I enjoyed it a lot.

I thinks is a good hostel, but far from the city center. Even though nothing is far in Brugge


Poor showers, the water coming from them were very thin and at high pressure so it was painful to use. No ventilation in room without opening a large window, which a person could climb through. Everywhere smelled like bleach.

Facilities are quite good , and the rooms are very clean and big. We have great time here!


Bathrooms are closed between 10am 2pm which was awful. 10 mins walk to the station and 15 to centre. breakfast was nice. Other than that people staying in this hostel are horrible. All underaged british kids and they are smooking weed, making noise etc. Also very few water coming from the bathroom pipes. Was hard tovtake a shower.


Hostel was good but staff is so rude, they are like teacher, have ridiculous rools, i want to borrow a spoon for half an hour from the kitchen but they say its forbidden and if you want you have to pay for it.

It's not very well located, but it has a good breakfast, pc terminal with internet for free, ping pong tables, clean bathrooms... so it was more than ok.


You get what you pay for. It is close to the centre (15min walk) and you can walk there from the train station. It is quiet. It could be cleaner, and lockers large enough for a backpack/ suitcase would be good. There is a small locker for a handbag etc.


With the feel of a converted school, it is a functional hostel rather than a place to enjoy. but if that is all you need and have a car (excellent parking facilities) then it is ideal. A long trek into to the city centre though.


A bit more hotel atmosphere than hostel and the location is a 15 min walk from the main city, but besides that everything was superb.


this hostel is about a 15 min walk from the city centre, which compared to the other hostels I stayed in, was far. there was no lockers and the rooms were very basic


Overall great stay. However, the other travelers tended to keep to themselves. The sheets/bedding were decent at best. The breakfast was good. It is a bit of a walk from town, but the town is tiny.


Great hostel! Comfy beds, good breakfast selection, nice hot shower, could use some more outlets in rooms though


This hostel was clean, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Breakfast was good; standard with fresh fruit. My small and few cons: there were only two outlets in a room of 6, not too bad since there were plugs in the lobby. Secondly there wasn't really a hostel atmosphere, which made it more difficult to meet people. I normally stay in hostels that have kitchens, but, although there was no kitchen, they allowed ouside food to be brought in. Overall a good, clean stay.


Very nice hostel. Location is a bit far from city center, but it's only a 15 minute walk or 5 minute bike ride (and you can rent good bikes for a cheap price at the hostel) Beds super comfortable. Shared bathrooms are super clean and there's plenty of them. No lockers but I actually didn't feel like I needed them. Breakfast included, a major plus! If you don't mind the very short walk to city centre, this is totally recommended!


I wish they had wifi and more power plugs in the rooms. Other than that it was a good hostel. Staff were very kind and smiling all the time. They have a great breakfast.


Too noisy: please don't put a group of 30 teenagers in the same hallway as other lodgers, especially when there's clearly enough room elsewhere for them, where there's less risk of them disturbing other people.
