We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Lybeer Hostel. My wife and I stayed in a private room in the classy 1890 house. I especially liked the well furnished common areas that were conducive to conversation with other travelers. We found the staff the be friendly and helpful, and were impressed with the cleanliness of the bathrooms. We also appreciated the free coffee, happy hour beers, and laundry facilities. Of the three places we stayed in Belgium, Lybeer was our favorite.

Met some really cool people there. The location is pretty good. Close to city centre. The bathroom for Dorm A and B is really nasty. Very strong smell of mildew and the toilet was clogged pretty much for the length of our stay (4 days). To their credit, they did unclog it, but it's obvs not a very good toilet. Music is really loud in the sitting area, it doesn't really have the right atmosphere for music to be playing so loudly that you can't even chat.

Hi there, thanks for your comment. We would like to ask you how a brand new completely renovated gorgeous looking bathroom could possible be nasty?? This is the first person ever to make a comment like that about our brand new super clean facilities.. About the music, you're saying "you can't even chat", that is not true and is giving future guests false information. Our common room is really nice and a great place to hang out, chat and meet people, everyone can play the type of music they like.

The location is good because the hostel is within walking distance to the train station and to the downtown area. The staff weren't the best, not very professional and always disappearing from the front desk. But the hostel is nice, decently clean, no free breakfast though.

Generally good. Wish there were lockers in rooms, but no big deal - used my cable lock to secure bag to bed (one can never be overcautious). No wifi upstairs, but that's not a big deal either. Location is great - a few hundred meters from Grote Markt. Also very close to T Brugs Beertje - if you are a beer tourist, you MUST go there.

Hi, thanks for your amazing review! We would like to add something: half our dorms have lockers installed under the beds, you can always request a room with lockers. Safe travels, see you around hopefully!

Pod beds were really cool. Lounge was great to hang out and have a drink in. Would have liked lockers in the rooms though. Overall, great stay, definitely recommend.

Nice and comfortable place to stay. My 4 bed dorm was just a bit too small, but it really meant no problem. I'd stay there again without any doubt.

I absolutely loved this hostel. Out of all my stays so far on my trip, this was by far the best. The staff was super helpful, the hostel was absolutely beautiful inside and the common room was so fun. It was easy to meet people and they had cheap drinks and great music. Would definitely go back and wish I could have stayed longer!

really nice place to stay, could have done with more power points in the room and I would have hated to try getting up the stairs while drunk

Couldn't fit our padlocks onto the lockers in our room and they'd sold out. Great otherwise.

The room was very nice and clean. The only thing we were missing was some kind of a wardrobe or any hook or at least chair. There was literally nothing in the room to leave your clothes on.

The shower drain was very smelly in our ensuite room, which meant that the bathroom always smelled bad (and the bedroom if we didn't keep the door shut). Otherwise a nice bathroom and bedroom. The staff were helpful.

Very nice hostel, but no lockers...?

Thank you for your comment. A correction however: half of our dorm rooms have lockers. Private rooms don't need lockers. The other half dorm rooms can use the secured luggage storage on the ground floor so no worries there either. Welcome anytime, cheers!

Good central location, facilities are great, good bar/walking tours etc offered. Reception staff were either mostly absent from the front desk or surly. No breakfast included. Otherwise great place.

Hi there, thanks for your comment. We are at reception most of the time, not sure what you mean. If we're not there, means we're helping somewhere else (kitchen, bar, upstairs, laundry room, etc..) or on a short break. Thanks anyway, do come back one day! Cheers

Thanks for your comment. We do believe our lounge room is amazing and a great place to meet people, and many nights we allow people to play their own music, so music styles (and volume perhaps) are different every night! :-) You're in the category 40+, most peole are in their early 20s, but everyone's welcome!! Cheers, Lybeer

Loved our stay at this amazing location... Cozy rooms and great atmosphere! Only one thing... I can imagen the staff sometimes are fed up with all the tourist, but the guy who helped us check in was really rude. Stay positive bro, it makes life a lot more fun :)

This is what happened: these people were upset because they assumed that their "arrival time" corresponded with "check-in time". When explaining to them that the rooms weren't ready yet (it was around noon and check-out is at 11am) and that they had to wait just a few hours perhaps, she responded that we should 've cleaned faster. We just reacted professional and strict. Otherwise we are very positive about guests that understand arrival time does not necessarily equal check-in time :-) Cheers!

What a fantastic hostel!

A brilliant and lively hostel/traveller's lodge (what is the difference by the way?!) situated close to the heart of the beautiful city of Bruges. Excellent room - we were told upon arrival that we could "upgrade" to a four bed room, with still just the two of us and at the same cost! Great evenings and day tours organised, which gave us lots of opportunities to meet others. Excellent staff too! Only quibble would be no breakfast provided. Otherwise an excellent place to stay in Bruges!
