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.

Facilities were nice, and the breakfast great. A bit far from the center, but an overall good hostal.

The staff was an old woman that probably didnt liked the job or the tourists, in a short conversation with her she complained of tourists in the city at least 2 times and when asked for things to do she was rude and negative. an example. I asked for bycicle rentals and boat trips in Brugge and she told me that that was impossible to get because they don't do that in winter, she refused even to give me info and we later found out that it was a lie but, we lost the opportunity to have a good time

K, wifi, seriously. Don't limit it to the lobby, then you just have a bunch I people sitting skyping their families when they should be skyping. Leave out the pool balls all the time. Get better sticks for the pool table. Don't close the showers for 3 hours. How long does it really take. And damn that location and damn that security. Just have free personal lockers IN the room that you can open and close with your personal key (like almost every other hostel). Weak.

Everithing was very nice thiugh the assitance of the lady in the counter was very bad and rude and the internet connection is quite frustating to connect

I really like the staff at the desk, she was very welcoming and helpful. Wifi should be provided in dorms as well and not restricted to lobby area only. Overall, i really loves the atmosphere as well as the beautifully located hostel with the pretty landscaping. A good choice for young travelers

No sinks with hot water available, which was a bit of an annoyance. Showers were hot though. Staff spoke great English and very helpful, quite quiet, short walk to town, loads of parking (car park was locked overnight behind big gate which was great). Contrary to other reviewers I thought the breakfast was good, no complaints there. If you want to stay in a budget hostel in Bruges you'll do well with this one.

Everything was perfect apart from the drunk rude barman. Breakfast is great and the girl at the reception so kind!! I would highly recomend this hostel!

Everything was clean and nothing out of the ordinary. A 10 minute walk from the bus stop, the breakfast is just bread and cereal, so don't expect it to be hotel-style continental. We only stayed one night, but my advice would be to just stay in Brussels and make a day trip to Bruges. Not much to see in the area.

Great bolt hole for resting up whilst exploring Bruges. Superb Value. The guy on reception when we checked in was one of the most helpful people of all time. Functional, convenient.

Staff helpful and friendly .En-suite rooms basic but clean. Free breakfast was a bonus and very good. The Hostels location is excellent with free parking and a short stroll to the centre. Would definitely stay here again. Only downside is if you stay longer than 1 night there is no kitchen to use.

Definitely a good place to stay in Bruges! Is a little bit of a hike from the center of town, but the atmosphere is very friendly and in general the staff was accommodating. Only complaint is that the Wifi doesn't really work in the rooms, and there were only two electrical outlets for an entire room of six people! Breakfast was great, facilities were clean, nice people. Would definitely recommend!

Great breakfast. MINUSES: Had to use tap water from the BATHROOM sink to then heat in MICROWAVE to make noodles (I was on a budget). Then had to ask staffer to drain said noodles of water in kitchen I was not allowed to use. Paid for use of cutlery/bowl!! This AJs should let guests use kitchen when so far from town. Too much money wasted on vacant spaces making hostel look even more dead than usual. Shower space filthy and apparently freezing anyway so did not use it. No lockers.

More electricity plugs needed in the rooms!!!
