This is a hip hostel with a very social...and somewhat loud... Vibe. A good place for a weekend of fun.....less good for a peaceful weekend.

Clean, secure, friendly. Cool bar. Good kitchen. Decent showers (you have to keep pressing the button and it only gives you warm water). I would recommend skipping out on using the laundry as washer + dryer = 5 euros and the soap gets stuck to your clothes.

Loved the space! Good to have curtains as well. Someone helped themselves to an extra cage under our bed so we had limited storage space, but that's no fault of the hostels. Not a whole lot to do but Definately recommend the zoo

We had a great stay at the Gastama Hostel. The Staff is very friendly and help you whenever. There is a nice bar where you can enjoy a Mojito. In the bar it is mostly extremely hot. The rooms are very open and spacious. In our room for 8 guests they could have put 12 guests if they wanted to. All the facilities are working and very clean. A great hostel to stay! And then there is the neighboorhoud in which you walk straight to the 'Old lille', which has nice bars and shops and lovely Streets.

Great overall but shower facility could be improved alot- shower spray too diffuse so takes ages to rinse off soap if you have thick hair like me, no soap holder in shower box so have to put items on the shower floor (yuck) or outside making the floor wet so floor gets very wet/ no shower mat. But very clean rooms and helpful staff. Thanks!!

This is an excellent hostel. One of the best I have been in throughout the world in terms of quality of facilities. I am not sure how much time Lille is worth spending in though. Lille is a good base for exploring the Flanders area and a lot of the WW1 battlegrounds.

Our room had just the beds. It is very simple to keep at least a chair inside the room. We had to put things on the ground.

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.

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.

Bathrooms and rooms were very clean, but common kitchen not so much. The dorm room is huge. Overall a nice place to stay.

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.
