Location is perfect for those that like to meet places walking, mostly of the places are on a small medium walk. No much interactions with staff beyond check-in but the overall is fine, for the ones that don't read their description they could need to give a walk until check in place that is around 3-5 from the dorm.

Amazing location !! Really in the center of Brussels! The money was completely worth on it !The check in in the other place is not at all a problem, at least for me! I had one problem there, and another girl told me the same, I booked a female room, and in the last day one guy was booked in my room!! Not fair at all! and as there is no staff in the place, and as I'm not from Belgium, I was not able to contact the staff! But it was a really nice place !

The best location I could wish for during my stay in Brussels. Very clean. The rooms are comfortable, the beds too. I found a very pleasant environment, a cute kitchen full of colors and a small sitting room. It was very small but never crowded so if needed, you could always find somewhere to sit. The only problem, there is no wi-fi inside the rooms. If you are travelling on your own, you can return any time at night (or in the morning) without being scared or anything.

I loved this hostel! It's amazing! The rooms are great, big lockers for the luggage, cool kitchen and common space, the cleaning lady it's so nice, the people it's cool, I will definitely come back!! It may be a little uncomfortable checking in other place but is just a few minutes away so not big deal either! You won't regreat!

We hadnt realised we had to check in somewhere else the other side of the city, probably a good thing we arrived in daylight, and met the cleaner after banging on the door, who told us where to go and how to get there and gave us a map. Other than that, it was all clean,and the location was brilliant. The kitchen was the best equipped I've ever seen. Only issue we found was that the bathroom was not big enough to move around in when there's 6 of you trying to get in to bed.

Excellent location literally in the Grand Place. However, you have to check in from their main reception which is about 15 min walk. No reception at this Grand Place branch. Everything was good except the shower. Temperature was low, barely warm enough to take a quick shower in a warm winter day (not hot enough to wash hair).

The location couldn't have been better, but it doesn't have a reception over all it was decent and I'd recommend it

All the facilities are in another hostel that is far away from this one

Very good location and facilities. However, the check-in at another hostel is a bit annoying, yet is done to make it all cheaper (so can't complain) :) Not really a hostel to meet new people and have parties. No common area that fits many people at a time.

It's a very good place to stay the night and the location is incomparable. But it would be helpful if the kitchen was open 24 hours.

Can't beat the location. The bathrooms and common areas are very clean, the beds are comfy. Not a homey environment though. The décor is a bit bizarre too (not an issue, just something to note).

Location was excellent!! Room was very clean and showers and bathrooms were very clean as well. Great choice to stay at! Beds were very comfortable and soft.

good location! it's so easy to go anywhere you want the only problem is that since it's the low season, you need to check in somewhere else and then to go the hostel. that means basically there is no staff help you with information .....impossible to leave your luggage there after checkout

Best location, showers, kitchen, staff, the only thing that sucks its that they put music very loud from 22 to 23 and 08 to 09 to annoy your sleeping, please stop that, otherwise its the best place to stay, please go to BRUGGES and after that GHENT on the way back, the second one its way better, but really worth to see if you go brussels catch the train to those places!

Two massive cons: it's an unmanned hostel and the only facility is a kitchen. That means there's no bar or 'chill out' area so it's not exactly ideal for lone travellers. Other than that, can't flaw this hostel - especially the location, you won't be able to beat it.

This hostel is located right in the Grand Place - ideal location for exploring the tourist area of Brussels! Room and ensuite toliet are very clean. Individual power socket was available for all beds. The common area was very comfortable, with sofa, magazines, books, etc. Only thing bad is the reception is not in the hostel - you have to do the check-in at another hostel which is 15-20 min away on foot. There is no luggage storage facility in this hostel too.

AMAZING location. Honestly, that was the best part of this place. I say book it without even looking for others because you won't find a better location. The rooms were surprisingly nice, and the shower was nothing to complain about either. Stay here!
