Most pleasant hostel, spacious rooms and enough space for people to either relax/party without bothering each other too much. Nice kitchen space, friendly vibe. Would recommend.

Perfect hostel! Very nice and helpful staff, lovely atmosphere, great location and very clean. Could not have been better for that price.

Simply everything you'd except from a Hostel. Entrance lobby with bar for simply hanging around. Computer area for internet access, if not there is a free wifi covering everything. Bedrooms are absolutely clean! Every bed has its own privacy curtain and a little cage box for storing your stuff. The bathrooms weren't 100% clean! There is room for improvement. Second, with respect to the overall size of Lille, the hostel is a bit outside, but definitely neglect able.

This was a wonderful place to stay on the final night of my motorcycle trip around Europe. The guests and staff were very friendly and it has a beautiful location in Vieux Lille. I'd definitely stay here again!

huge room for 6 beds dorm - this is the same size room as 12 beds dorm in London. Super clean & tidy, great atmosphere, bar at the reception gets busy on saturday night but you won't hear any noise if u want a good night sleep as it's at the front of the building and the sound gets blocked out by locked doors. just a bit far from EuroStar station -20mins walk or so, but it's a nice little town you might as well wants to walk around :)

It was a really good hostel with reliable wifi. The bar makes it easy to meet other persons if you want to. The majority of the staff is really friendly. On the negative side, if your room gives on the front street, you can sometimes ear people from the bar when they go outside and talk loudly, same thing with the traffic in the evening or morning. If you're a light sleeper, ask for a room in the back. Also, you can't change the heat of the showers and they are really really hot.

The reception is an extension of the bar or vice versa. Friendly and helpful staff. Several PCs for keeping up on your email and making those necessary bookings as you move on. The only big disappointment was not to taste the local beer of Lille, Gastama. Next time ! Those squeeky doors to the stall need to be lubed.

The kitchen was really nice. The main part of the city was only a 5 minute walk away. I would return.

Although you need a card or have the receptionist open the door of the hostel for you, there were random people in my room who werent staying there, sleeping with people who were. The showers were nice, the room itself was nice (the AC ones).

Hostel Gastama was amazing. Great beer on tap, dependable wi-fi, cool staff, nice kitchen (i ate for free from left-over "community" box), great chill-out place in Lille. I came to Lille to chill-out and that's what happened. Actually, I partied with a friend, really hard, ran home at 5 am. But was able to get in at those ungodly hours and say hello to the night watchman. Only real hostel in Lille --my friend. walked everywhere, incl. to-fro train station. Breakfast was so-so.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The dorm was big, clean and comfortable. The lockers were clean and sleek. There was no climatization so sheets would be nicer than warm blankets. The bar/reception was nice and had a good atmosphere, so did the street where it was in.
