The location made up for the other shortcomings. A good place to stay if in Brussels.
Directions on the booking email was very bad, the names of tram/metro stops did not match up completely with the proper names, which confused me immensely while trying to find the check-in place.

We were in a 6 dorm room. Best room, best bed, best shower ever in an hostel!! Wifi was ok, we had power plug in our bed but no lockers. The location is just ideal! For the price it's just so worth it! The personnel tho wasnt really helpful. Had to check in in another hostel and they makes us wait for 2 hours... there wasnt really a place to hang out and meet people so atmosphere wasnt the best, but everyone hang out in the Grand Place, so we met people there! I would definitely go back!!
Directions to the check in hostel were clear. It is confusing enough to have to go to 2 hostels though. Hostel we stayed in was nice, it had an elevator also which made the trip to the top floor very convenient. The enquite bathroom was clean if cramped. The recently renovated hostel has aircon which was good and its pretty quiet also so it was easy to get some sleep and a few(too many) trappist beers. All in all it was grand.
Don't be fooled by this places rough exterior, it may look like a crack den, but inside it's clean, cool and lovely. The beds are great, layout of rooms is nice, the location is perfect, everyone is friendly and the kitchen is amazing. Bathrooms are kept to a high standard and it's right by the nightlife! A couple of things to watch out for, mostly you do need to book in up the road, but not always! And the staff are rarely in the hostel, although they're rarely needed.
Nice location in Grand Place which is very handy. Check-in is a little bit of a bother as it's not at the hostel itself, but if you're coming from the north train station you have to pass it to get their. Hostel itself looks nothing special but the room was great, nice comfy beds and the facilities were great. Shower and toilets were seperate so you're not waiting around and the lockers were nice and big. All in all a great place to stay.
Make sure you go to the right place to start with. Walking the 15 minutes to the reception with heavy bags , and then back again is not fun. Otherwise really good facilities. Common room is alright but i didn't find it particularly social.
Best hostel in Brussels! This hostel is brand new and could not have a better location - 30 seconds walk from the beautiful main square. Rooms were fantastic (and air conditioned). Highly recommend staying here!
Great to have your own outlet in every bunk! Obviously the location is what sells it. If you're self-sufficient and don't need the desk staff, this is worth the few extra euros to be so close to Grand Place
It was a great place to stay, heaps of atmosphere I would recommend it, loved it ......
Great hostel, amazing location. Only bad thing I can say is extremely rude cleaners, I saw one of them practically push over a girl I was hanging out with in the kitchen when she walked by. They wanted us out less than a minute after breakfast stopped being served even though there was a bunch of us still eating. I also booked a room 4 nights but had to do 1 night then move to another for 3 nights. Would have been ok but first room had 4 lockers for 5 beds which is unacceptable in any hostel
This hostel is an absolute perfect location in Brussels. It is right next a lot of happenings in the city, and in close to some excellent bars. My biggest complaint was the check-in time for the hostel. Check-in was at 16:00, which is a bit late, and is not even on site which is extremely annoying.
Great location and great rooms. only stayed one night but would recomened
The location is a 10 minute walk away from the check in address you are directed to. However, despite the exterior looking a bit shabby the hostel is very modern and clean inside. Very pleasant stay.
I had to walk 10 minutes out of the way to get to the original hostel to be checked in and then told that my room was in a building that I had already past. But the room I stayed in was 1 block from the city center square and the famous bar area. Those were a plus!
Wifi is very very fast, never get a block. Location is perfect, at the very center of old town and a few steps to the Grand Place. But the disadvantage is that it is too noisy. There's a pub downstairs and people clubbing all night till 3am. 6-mix dorm is not spacious, but fine for the value of money. The Bathroom is built inside the dorm, with seperate toilet and shower.
It was really nice stay. Just one thing, that I had to check in at another hostel(2go4), was little bit inconvenient but that could be covered by other things. Very clean, good facilities(especially hair drier), friendly staff, perfect location. Thanks.
Awesome location! Right by the grand plaza and in the centre of everything going on. Great place for younger travellers who enjoy a great night out. Only a block or two away from the worldfamous bar Delirium. Would recommend this hostel to anyone!
Location is perfect, right in the heart of Brussels. I would say the hostel itself is average. There is no reception and staff at hostel and you have to go to different address forcheck-in.
Literally brand new, really modern and is great value for money. Only issue is that there is no reception which is pretty annoying sometimes.
