Most part of the time the hotel was unattended. We had to wait more than two hours in the street to check in. There were bags from another gusts in the stairs (the staff were suppose to watch them, but there wasn't anybody there). I booked a room without shower, thinking that I would share a shower in the corridor... but no! My bedroom didn't have a shower neither I could use another one. ¬¬ Toilets without paper... At least the hotel was well located.

Booked a suite, but the bathroom had no toilet (there're 2 toilets in the stairway) and the shower was messed up. The heating was always on (without the possibility of easily turning it off) so it felt like a greenhouse during the night. Having said that, the room was pretty big and clean enough, the staff was friendly, and the location was just perfect. A mere 5-10 minutes walk from the Grand Place, and very close to the best places for beer tourism (Moeder lambic, Cantillon, Delirium, etc)

It is a buliding with several rooms. Most of the rooms dont have shower inside, which is difficult if you are spending visiting the city enough time. BUT, in the very top of the bulding they have an exellent rooms, well painted, mirrors, nice bed, table, good shower... and just paying 10 euro more per night in respect of the tipical non shower'rooms! So it is ok if you spend more money and you can get one room of the top of the building. It worth! In the other side, not at all.

Instead of the bidet there could really be a small shower. It was quite noisy. Sleeping there was OK, but that's all. Wouldn't stay there again.

We spend one night in the hostel during the Christmas Market period and it was quite close to that. The hostel is located in the centre of the town, in walkable distance to the main attractions. The room was acceptable with huge bed, shower cabin.

The hostel is well situated in the heart of the city: very convenient though very noisy at night. Though the manager tried to do his best, we could barely have access to one of the showers situated in the other rooms (because some rooms do not have any showers, only a sink, beware) except if we came back to the hostel between 11 A.M. and 3 P.M. The bed was not of the utmost comfort. In the end the value for money is disappointing. We won't have another stay in this hostel.
