Nice place. I spent only one night there, but had a very good sleep! The bed was comfortable and the covet warm =) 10 hours of dreams without disturbing and waking up=) A bit disappointing thing was the state of the girl's shower in front of the room 105 - canalisation didn't work very well and was full of hair...brrr

I think is a perfect place to stay in Lille, easy to go walking from the train stations and near to the main places to visit. Excelent service and atmosphere ;)

Clean, well managed hostel with nice beds and a lively bar. Room wasn't overly welcoming and there was no common room area except the bar. Vert good kitchen, dining room though.

Gastama was a really nice hostel. I was travelling alone so didn't really make use of the bar, but it seems like it might be the best in the area and a great hangout. The dorms are tucked away in the rest of the building so nice and quiet, and they've got those cool bunks with individual curtains so you can hide away if you want and get a good night's sleep. It's €4 for a buffet breakfast if you book the night before which was really good. Staff very nice and gave good local advice.

A nice place to stay in Lille. Both train stations are ~20 mins walking. There's a bar on the ground floor, and it seems like it's packed more with locals than travelers. Beds are really comfy, with a curtain, personal power outlets and a lamp. On the backside, my room had nothing more than 4 beds and a sink - no table, chairs, wardrobe etc, despite it was spacious enough. Anyway, it was a good experience. Can recommend this place.

Even before receiving the free Lille football tickets, the guy who was there is most welcoming, helpful and easy going. Only comment for the hostel to review is the shower and toilet situation, clearly not enough when there are multiple people waiting. Oh and try separating student groups from travellers, otherwise great modern place with a popular bar or a nice chill out room up stairs.

Awesome hostel with a very lively bar at night which the locals frequent. You don't even have to leave the hostel for a night out! Many restaurants around, bar strip, river and sights are all a comfortable walking distance.

Good hostel with a bar. Good location. 15 min walking from the train station. Very close to the historic center (10 min walking). Very good staff ! I have stayed here during a long week for my job. It was nice, quiet and comfortable.

A very nice hostel although, in my opinion, it is a little too big. The combination of Bar und Hostel ist well ment but I actually don't want to sleep in the middle of a party. Nonetheless it is a really cool hostel.

The Gastama is a very good hostel, although I think, it simply is a little too big. There is a Bar which is part of the Hostel. That's very cool if you don't wanna go back into town for a drink. Especially on the weekend it was almost a little too much of a party down there. Nonetheless, It's a good hostel for a good price.

This hostel is a really really good one. Each bed has individual curtains, which allow privacy and also allow you to avoid waking up everyone if you have to leave early. Additionally, each bed has two outlets and a reading light, so you don't have to worry about finding a place to charge your phone. The location is good, just a ten minute walk from the center of Lille. Everyone one was super helpful. The only downside is it is a little pricy, but that's what you get for north France.

The hostel is one of the best I know even it has its own bar on the groundfloor you dont hear much sound or noise from downstairs if you want to sleep over it in your room. Unfortunately there was a noise group of Belgian tourists on my floor and room so one night I didnt slept well. But over all it was a very nice stay.

Friendly staff, excellent facilities - all looked recently refurbished. Very clean. Good breakfast available for 4 euros. On bus route #10 from centre/main train station. Self catering facilities good, bar on ground floor but well sound proofed from bedrooms.
