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 great hostel with an amazing atmosphere! A good place to meet people!
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.
