The Wi-Fi was abysmal. It could not be used in the rooms, and even in the lobby it cut you off every two minutes. Second, ALL the toilets and showers were shut from 10.30-1.30, which was appalling, and made mornings difficult. Third, there is an incredibly creep bar man.

Sucked that wifi didn't work in the rooms and only the common area. Very relaxed, I would definitely stay again!


Good value for money. :)

Not so far from the city center, full of facilities and good staff.


Would be nice to have a kitchen and refrigerator.


Pretty decent hostel. In a very good quiet location away from the city. Guests were pretty loud and rowdy when i was there though.


In general, is a good place to stay for a couple of night or maximum three. I think is a bit expensive for what it is, but it does have everything that a traveler needs. For the money I think the breakfast should be better, the rooms should have lockers and the wifi should at least work in the common areas in each of the buildings and not only on the area near reception. The extra things available like beers, bikes or snacks are quite cheap so that was good. In general my stay was pleasant.


Hostel was SO CLEAN! walking distance to town, great facilities, wifi broke down a lot and didn't reach rooms which was annoying, some really great staff who were so helpful and friendly except one lady who was rude and snappy with one of our group when they were asking for help with a computer. great place to stay!!! fix your wifi though!!


Everything very good.


all good but very bad wifi, does not reach the bedrooms and each time it stops working. :(


lousy wifi


You can play pool for free.


Pleasant location, peaceful, clean , helpful staff, I would stay again.

Nice big hostel with a good breakfast. Not too far from the city center, maybe a 10 minute walk. Supermarket right across the street but the downside is they have no kitchen to use. Breakfast was very good and free. More of a family or group hostel t seemed. Wouldn't recommend for those travelling alone


A bit far from center, about 20 minutes walk. A place more for families than individual backpackers. Borrowing forks cost 10 cents(which is a set including a fork,a spoon and a plate). Hot drinking water 50 cents. Those are just small , affordable amount of money, but still dont feel quite happy paying when most of hostels provide them for free.


Walking instructions from the train station would be helpful. Bus directions were not clear and I could have walked in a shorter time. There was no wifi in the rooms and it was intermittent in the commons areas. Would've been nice to play the football WC final. The showers were mixed which wasn't very nice, especially when there was a group of 'lads' using them!! Staff could've been a bit more willing to help/be friendly. Rooms felt very campsite-like. Breakfast was decent.


The price was excellent. It was a 15 minute walk to the main attractions but located on a quiet/secure area so I got a good night's sleep. Breakfast included. I only wish they had large lockers to leave our things instead on leaving it in the bedroom. Not a huge deal in the end.


Okay place for school groups (of which there were about 3) Felt a bit like a school, with many rules! Breakfast, parking and the ping pong table were ok. Wi-Fi, plastic beds, and general decor not so good. Compared to the other hostels we stayed in on our trip, this didn't live up to the rest really. But for a night stop off, it's fine!

Good hostel, very well located, big spaces and wide garden! Passive staff but good option by travelling cheap to Brugge! Facilities to hire a bike, 10 min to city centre


I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel - it was conveniently located in a suburb pretty near the heart of Bruges with a lovely campus and great facilities! A couple of the staff members were great to talk to, very friendly and accomodating while some of them seemed not to care. There are great resources (including a bar and a for-rent computer) but the wi-fi was pretty spotty most of the time we were there. Great gaming facilities like ping pong and football. Good value.
