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.

The hostel was great! It's a little off the beaten path, but still not far from the city center. The room smelt a little funny at first when we opened the door, but after opening the windows it was fine. They provided us with clean sheets and pillowcases upon arrival. The staff was very welcoming, gave us maps and helped us out a bunch as far as finding things in the city. All in all, for the price, it was well worth it!

This is a weird hostel. I don't know how else to describe it. It's feels almost like summer camp. You're so isolated from downtown and there isn't much going on near by. We actually switched to the St Christopher's hostel after the first night. There are no lockers and no one seemed to even lock the dorm rooms. It just kind of feels like a recreational centre rather than a hotel. Definitely wasn't what we were looking for.

The hostel is not in the center of Bruges, but you can rent a bike at the hostel, 10 euro for a day (night included), and reach the center in a few minutes

This felt more like a resort than an hostel. There were more centrally-located hostels with more social atmospheres, but after coming from 2 weeks in Paris I found the more distanced hostel very relaxing. 20 minute walk to the historic part of Bruges.

No lockers in the room - unprotected belongings. Friendly staff. No internet WiFi connection in the room! Nice area but hard to find - tiny sign in the street with different name on it. Delicious breakfast.

Great hostel - so glad we stayed here. Big reception area with pool table where you can sit and browse the WiFi, and a huge dining hall with free breakfast which was lovely. Rooms are adequate and just what you need for a kip. Great staff, lovely hostel. Highly recommend.

The staff was friendly and helpful however the wifi was extremely spotty and I gave up on trying to make it work. They don't provide towels to use in the shower and water is also only cold. The location is good because it is in walking distance to downtown Bruge. However you have to be out of your room the day after you spend the night by 10 am and they do not store your luggage for you for the remainder of the day. This posed to be a problem.. But we managed to use the cubbies at the historiu

No lockers, 20 minute walk from centre, staff adequate - they answered questions and ordered us a cab. There wasn't too many reasons to liaise with them.

One easy thing I can suggest is to get a toaster. It would greatly improve the breakfast :)

Sort of a family hostel. The lounge area is nice but feels impersonal, although there is also a nice outside area with ping pong and grass space. Showers and wifi were fine. There is no kitchen. It is a short walk outside of bruges central. It's a fine hostel, very comfortable.

The hostel was ok, very clean, but really far from the center and the train station :( Also, we did not recieve our room keys when we checked in (12.30 hrs, well within check in time) and got late while coming back, so did not end up receiving rooms at all, for which we paid 44 euros :( Breakfast was nice. Overall ok, but i've stayed in much nicer and better located hostels for a much cheaper price.
