The bar has 1€ beers which is great and staff are very helpful. The hostel basically parties all night long with loud music. People are running up and down the stairs and its not even worth bothering trying to sleep before 1am. The reception, kitchen and living area is not open before 815am. Rooms are tiny. Basically if you are planning on waking up early this hostel is not for you. If you are more of a nightlife person then it's good.

Hi there, thanks for your comment. A few remarks though: you had booked a "basic small dorm", so your room was obviously small and basic. All other room types are bigger. About the bar, every night is different, if there's a good crowd mingling, we can stay open until shortly after midnight, but never later than 1am. We're a good hostel, both for people that enjoy to socialize at the bar, and people that enjoy a good night's sleep. Welcome back anytime, take care!

Great hostel to meet people, great location, strong wifi + clean bathrooms. Every night had an activity or the option of hanging out at the hostel. Staff were lovely and the kitchen was great to have. Rooms were a tiny bit small, but you didn't spend much time in there anyway! Highly recommend,

Great hostel in a central location with pleasant staff and enough bathrooms on each floor. The hostel bar downstairs and the lounge space are great and create a nice, social atmosphere to chill out and chat to fellow travellers.

We loved Lybeer Hostel! Our room was one of the twin ensuites, and it had been newly renovated. We liked the bright and clean looks, with two comfy beds and a brand new bathroom with pebbles on the wall. The view from the windows was very nice and the atmosphere was friendly. Plus, the hostel is in an excellent location, close to the t'Zand square - a comfortable walking distance from all the sights of Bruges!

Simply one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. Great staff, and feels like home from the moment you walk in!

Sorry to hear you weren't pleased with your stay. These people were in their late 50s early 60s so perhaps not the typical hostel guests :-) Take care!

Great hostel!! Awesome atmosphere, great "pod" style beds with personal charging ports which was a real luxury! Fantastic washer and dryer which were super quick/industrial style! Bar at the hostel and full kitchen were awesome! Wifi could have been better and I wish there had been elastic fitted sheets instead of flat sheets for sanitary reasons (flat sheets didn't stay put covering mattress), but other than that, great stay!

We stayed in the 2-bed private room on the 3rd floor which was nice for safety reasons but we could still here things going on in the room next to us (I heard every word of some guy's late night Skype call). There was a sink in our room which I appreciate - and a window that we opened all night but didn't help to bring cool air in (we visited during a heat wave and it as miserably warm). The common areas are large and it is easy to meet other travelers. Didn't get the best vibes from the staff.

Had a pleasant night in Bruges. Town is beautiful and the beer is excellent. One bathroom on each floor was a downfall though. But it worked out.

Hey, thanks for your comment. Just wanted to add that qlmost half of our rooms have private bathroom facilities, the other people can use our public bathrooms (4 in total). Welcome anytime, take care!

Clean, centrally located, a nice place to crash for the night. Might be worth noting the construction work going on for the cobblestones outside right now - they start at 8 in the morning and made finding the hostel hard to find initially

Hi there, thanks for your comment. Just wanted to say that the street's finished now, no more construction, was only for a couple of days. Looks beautiful! :-) Take care

No lockers in dorms! And the room is supposed to be locked with keys (which people was always forgetting to do). So, rooms by key, always open, no lockers... It's like they are asking for problems! Room was clean, bu only the lower bunks had sockets by the bed. Top beds got squat and had to leave phones to charge on the floor. Lamps not working. Clean bathrooms. Good location but every activity was being held at a different hostel on the other side of the city. Not staying again...

This person is not informing people correctly. First of all, there are lockers under your bed (!), sorry you missed those. Secondly, doors lock with a key, you are supposed to lock it, not our fault other guests don't lock their door. There are DAILY activities, walking tours (every day from the hostel), beer tastings (Tue and Fri with us), pub crawls, happy hours (daily at the bar), so there's stuff to do EVERY day, this person is not properly informing people, kindly ignore this review.

Nice hostel with a big common room and friendly staff. My 6-bed dorm on the third floor was tiny and cramped, and the room key always took a lot of fidgeting before the door opened. The 1 shared toilet/shower room and other shower room on the floor were not sufficient, especially during peak hours, with the hot water running out on my first morning. Apart from this, everything was fine.

By far one of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed in, modern facilities in a classic Bruges house! Terrace outside super cool. Nice people there too, had a great time.

The four people dorm is pretty bad. You basically don't even have room to turn. However, I upgraded to the private room which is MUCH nicer.

Hi there, worth mentioning that this person had booked a "SMALL BASIC dorm" which is our cheapest room type and obviously small and basic. All other room types are substantially bigger. But thanks for your comment, take care!

This hostel was amazing! The staff especially Sie made my stay here amazing! The wifi was a little on and off and the hostel rooms are all different. But that isn't even a complaint just basic hostel living! The atmosphere in the lounge is great to meet people! I can't say enough great things about this hostel! I would stay here again and again on my future travels to Bruges!
