Really nice hostel ! I'll definitely come back if I'm passing by Lille again !
Never seen a kitchen so disgusting in a hostel. The cutlery, the dishes, the floor, everything was soiled. Dishes were piled in he sink for 3 days before someone cleaned that. There is not enough shower and some were broken. It get very hot in the room and if we open the window, we hear all he sound from the bar. I slept relatively good for the first nights but then last night on Saturday drunkards kept making noise all night. I guess being the only hostel in town they think they can do whatever
Hostel atmosphere was so good and staff also. Rooms were amazing!
Pros: Staff are fabulous, no problems with them. It's in a good location near Vielle lille, just a quick walk away, grocery store is right around the corner, close to the Citadel (great walk). Security is great as well, they're open 24 hrs and there is a night guard, in addition large luggage storage under the bed and a large bag check as well. kitchen was accommodating Cons: Only 2 showers (per gender) on my floor, one of which was not open. Overall: I would highly recommend Gastama
I have seldom seen hostel which is so clean. Amazing place to stay. Rooms are really big and airy. Breakfast is very tasty. 15 minutes walk from Railway Station. Well connected with Bus. I recommend to all who would like to spend time in Lille; this is fantastic place to stay.
Very good hostel, in the center of Lille, close to almost everything!

Great staff and facilities. Would recommend to everyone!
Merci beaucoup pour tout... Le séjour à votre hostel était très agréable! :)
This was honestly the best hostel Ive ever stayed at. Such an awesome atmosphere and staff! The bar is so great, such a great place to go down and drink on the weekends when locals come to drink and hang out. During my backpacking trip, I came to Lille and stayed here and loved it so much that before I left to go back home I had to stay another weekend. I HIGHLY recommend anyone who is thinking of staying in Lille to stay at Gastama, you wont regret it!
Nothing to really complain about. Good facilities, location, pub downstairs but silent from your room. Good staying overall. Will be back one day.
Private room was a bit more 'hostel' like than expected, no other furniture than a queen (!) size bunk bed. Something to lay your stuff onto would be nice. The bed was very comfortable. Location is good, free parking nearby, plenty of bars and restaurants on the same street, walking distance to old city centre. Not very quiet, hostel bar+court yard and bar across the street are popular, so pretty noisy in weekends.

Nice modern hostel in Lille. Well equipped kitchen. The only problem is that some of the guests let the dishes pile up in the sink.
Centrally located hostel with bright and spacious rooms. Also super clean! Perfect!
Just dropped by. Wish we could have stayed longer
Very clean rooms and bathrooms. Very spacious rooms. The staff are genuinely friendly and helpful. Very good location.
I stayed in a 8 bed room, it was clean and the beds were sturdy and comfortable with individual lights and power points. The staff were great both for a chat and for help. They helped me organise a car for a day trip, with a discount. Unfortunately the guest kitchen was a bit of a mess. The rest of the facilities were clean and organised. Wifi works best in the bar, but if you get a password (free) worked all the time.
The bar is great place to chill at! The staff are super friendly and location is great! Located in old town but it is a bit of a walk from the train station. Only problem I had was getting kicked out of WiFi every few minutes, which made trip planning difficult.
Lovely hostel and very friendly. I was a bit worried that it would be noisy at night but it wasn't a problem.
