I stayed in Meininger hostel for 2days. Even though the hostel is located quite far from city center, it was very clean and comfortable place. During my stay, I could have good night sleep. Workers was very kind as well. If I visit Brussel again I'm going to stay here as well.

We stayed in a private 4 person ensuite and we could not have been more pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotel that we received for our money. The location is good. A 15 minute walk to the city centre but it's a straight shoot once your across the canal and entirely worth reduced pricing for the distance. Very impressed! Biggest complaint: water was €3.50 to buy in hotel!! :(

I was most disappointed that you need to pay to use their computers since their description implied otherwise. The receptionist said it's a 10min walk to the midi station which was not true at all. Very walkable distance to the grand place and includes SANDEMAN's walking tour (one of the best walking tour company) Also I was pleased they included a map of Bruges as well as map of Brussels. The rooms are also clean and spacious

Dear guest, thanks for taking your time and sharing with us your experience. The wifi is free in all the hotel and the computers are 1euro for 20 min, and 2euros for 1h. Do you think it's too much for that Maybe it was just a misunderstanding with the receptionist, because we all know that the Midi station is 10 min with the tram and 20 by walking and we say it to the guests. We hope to see you in future, so we can earn a 100% satisfy from you. Kind regards

MEININGER is a good brand and has greatly designed hostels, but the location of this one was so far from the city center, it was too much, and the atmosphere was only okay.

Super clean, the staff were friendly and excellent, the inside of the rooms are sleek and fairly large, and the bar is a great place to relax. I also took the free walking tour my first morning and it was great! It was super informative, and a good way to familiarise myself with the city (I only got lost once). It's so close to the old city, but not close enough that it's super noisy and full of drunks. Definitely will be staying here again my next trip to Brussels.

Menininger are a proper hotel chain and have impressive property in brussels. The rooms are extremely good with nice furniture, lifts and huge lobby. The bar at the common room is well stocked and good place to socialize . The staff are extremely helpful w.r.t knowledge of the city, booking of tickets, activities in & around the hostel The Wi-Fi is not so good in the rooms and you will have to come down to reception to get a good signal. There are no lockers in the room.

Pretty fancy hostel, but it looks more like a hotel.

If you are looking for an intimate, fun hostel to meet people, do not stay here... It is enormous, very difficult to meet/interact with people. The staff informed us that we couldn't bring in any alcohol bought outside the hostel

Dear guest, thanks you for the review. We are sorry that you didn't like staying with us. The hotel is enorm, but there are so many people that it's not difficult to meet people. Nobody is complaining ever about this fact. In any case in no other hotel in Europe you can bring alcohol from outside inside, for security reason and for hygiene. Nobody wants to sleep near somebody who's drinking next to him :). In any case we hope to see you back in Brussels. King regards

I enjoyed my stay at the hostel. It was clean, the staff were friendly and helpful. There seemed to be very big queues at check in time, and very few staff on the desk, which meant a long wait to be served, but aside from that, no issues with the hostel at all, I will definitely stay in a Meininger Hostel again

Dear guest, thanks for the great review. You are right, sometimes the reception is full with people, everybody is checking in and out at the same time, and it's very difficult for us to manage it. Thanks to your comprehension and that of other guests we try to improve everyday, and we'll take you review in consideration. Kind regards

Clean, great for price, shame you couldn't get a drink from the bar on Saturday night as there were no staff available.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear guest, thanks for the review. On saturday night you couldn't get a drink? This looks very strange, due to the fact that our bar is open until 1h in the night. Maybe it was after that time, or just for one second the barman had to refill the fridges and maybe he was not available? We hope this didn't cause you so much trouble. WE hope to see you back in our MEININGER Brussel. Kind regards

It's a beautiful hostel, it look like a hotel!! It's like 10-15min walking to go at the center. It's not to expensive, you can got good deal, but if you want the breakfast, it's not free.

I made really good friends here, and the facilities are really good. One downside was that there were way too many kids around making noises. Quite disturbing. But other than that, was great. The way to the hostel might get a bit creepy during the night if you're alone.

Dear guest, It seems like you had a great time with us, and we are happy about it. In some floors we do have groups from school, families, backpackers and so on. That's our force!! We hope to see you soon back to Brussels

18€ per day for parking seems a little much

Owner Comment (Hide)
Dear guest, thanks for taking your time on writing your opinion about us. The parking is18 Euros, indeed, but it's secure, with cameras and next to the hotel. the others are on the street for the same price (no secure). We hope this didn't cause to you so much trouble. Kind regards

I don't usually love HUGE hostels as a solo traveler but seeing as I was with my boyfriend this trip we booked MEININGER and I just cant fault it! The staff are friendly & helpful, the rooms (private & dorm) are beautiful & very comfortable, the location is good, the entire hostel is spotless all the time & even though it is a huge hostel they still have a fully equipped kitchen! Overall Fantastic!! The only negative is that it does attract big groups of people which is not my ideal atmosphere.

Dear guest, Thanks for taking your time and sharing your thought with everybody. We do have groups in the house, and we try to contain them in some floors, divided from families and backpacker, but they are bookers too :). We hope you'll come back to visit us in one of our MEININGER Hotels around Europe.

MEININGER Brussels was very helpful in navigating us around town upon our arrival. The option to rent a bike from the hostel was a definite bonus as most of Brussels was easily accessed with a bicycle. The rooms were very appealing and beds VERY comfortable (One of the best hostel beds i have slept in!) I would definitely recommend if you are staying in Brussels.

Fantastic hostel. Awesome decor, friendly atmosphere and only a 15 minute walk from the one of the central areas of Brussels.
