The hotel breakfast is served in the room, but not always at the requested time and often very late. On the third day I had asked for breakfast at 7.45. At 8:30 I went down into the reception but it was closed as a result I left without eating.
Great location, 2 min to GrandPlace, less than 10 to Brussels central Station. Breakfast delivered to your room at your chosen time was a nice touch. Only minor issue would be the smell of cigarette smoke in our room during the day that was coming from either the staff or another guest. Didn't bother us later in evening, but may to those more sensitive. Overall great value, and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
All the staff are very friendly, accommodating, and helpful specially Alfred who speaks many languages fluently. I just wish the hostel can offer more variety in breakfast.
The location is perfect, very close to the Central Station and all the main attractions, and the other aspects are also good considering the price.
