I enjoyed my stay very much and in case I should go back to Lille I'd certainly book a room there again.

Stayed for one night on a Friday mid November. The staff were really friendly and made the effort to get to know you. The bar got very busy with mostly locals and it was a party vibe till the early hours. Very modern, clean and spacious. Big kitchen facilities and only 10min walk from the train station. Slightly more expensive than other hostels I stayed in but the facilities justify this

Cool hostel, good vibes. The bar is amazing, the staff very nice. It was a pity to spend there - and in lovely Lille - one night only.

Excellent hostel, the rooms are really clean and organized, they have a bar in the hostel that proposed the socialization between people that are there, coffe really worth it! It is not so close of the center of the city but anyway, it's an excellent hostel

One of the best hostels I stayed at. Very clean, very safe, very well located. Bonus point : unlike the vast majority of hostels, power sockets are available next to the head lamp, so you can recharge your smartphone safely while you sleep.

We received a really nice welcome so were excited to be staying here, the hostel is nice, good bar with a good selection of beers. Aside from the boy who greeted us the staff seemed to be put off by having to get you a drink or anything else, i would not stay here if you are english as this level of service only seemed to extend to us, i could see others were having a fantastic time. And they double booked one of our beds, no apology, was woken at 3am by another person trying to get into bed

Hi! I'm happy you had a good time in the Hostel and sorry you had some bad experiences. The points are: we're always very happy when people like to come and enjoy the Bar at the ground floor, and we never do any over or double booking (but sometimes people don't want to listen carefully or read their welcoming card so that they can know without any mistake which bed in the dorm they can use). Thank you for the comment anyway, unless the rate seems a bit hard for us...

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The lock on the bedroom was broken, so everybody could get in. The bathroom was dirty, the water stayed always in the sinks; there were only two showers, so you had to wait almost always. The prices in the bar were a little high.

A really relaxed friendly atmosphere with young staff who are always willing to help. The bar has a great selection of beers on tap and the locals are about to watch a match on the telly. A great mix of internationals and French people. The rooms are safe and clean and the location is great. Probably one of the best hostels I've stayed in for a while. I would definitely recommend!

On arriving, the guy with the beard could not do enough to help me out even though he was busy - he was brilliant. The hostel is a 15 minute walk away from the city square which is a little too much if you're back and forth (on cobbled walkways). However, in saying that, it is close to the river (which leads you to the FREE zoo which is worth a little look). Take a lock if you need to securely put things in your cage under the bed (I wasn't told that) - £17 a night is great value for me!

The hostel was really good. Our room was spotless and spacious. All the staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. The downstairs bar is a big winner with guests and locals alike.
