The installations were terrible, we encountered so many problems such as : -incredibly dirty -the piping system was all blocked: shower and sink -BEDBUGS! the bed was full of them and me and companions ended up all bitten and with allergies. During one night we found 3 insects in the bed. -promised toilet included in bedroom and we had to share, so dirty, disgusting and stinky.

Could use a door in the bathroom. Also a shower curtain and a holder for the shower head would be nice as well.

Really enjoyed staying here just a few words if you get one of the rooms on the top floor they have recently been refurbished so everything looks brand new great shower as well especially the rainfall showerhead. I was up very early each day for the trips i was doing so it didnt bother me but there are building noise going on next door.The location is excellent and the staff very helpful. Next time i go back to brussels will definitely book again.

The shower was okay however it was very easy to wet the floor. There were a few bars close to the hostel that had loud music on until at least midnight, there was no air conditioning so we had to keep the windows open all night as it was very hot, the noise was very disruptive. We had a comfy bed and the hostel is only a 10min walk away from the grand place. There was not a common room and the wifi signal in the bedroom was not very strong. Overall, we had a good stay.
