Loved this place! Great stay here. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. About a 15 minute walk from city center, but in a nice area of St. Catherine.

This was more like a luxury apartment than a hostel! What a great way to start our holiday.

Staff was awesome and helpful, location was within walking distance of everything, rooms had beautiful birds painted on the walls (in ours at least). Our shower leaked a bit but not enough to be an issue. Breakfast was delicious and the only thing was having to take the stairs but welcome to Europe right!? :)

Great hotel, great location, great staff -- overall an amazing experience. My one small complaint was the wifi in the room was a bit touch and go, but overall it was a great stay!

If you go to Brussels, you MUST stay here! The owner, Guy, is the sweetest and will tell you everything to do during your stay in this wonderful city. Great location, walking distance to everything and the metro is right outside of it as well. The rooms are incredible, comfortable beds, huge kitchen, and living space. Complete with a stereo! I wish everywhere we stayed was like this. Perfect for young travelers and even families! Stay here!

Cannot rate the staff highly enough, all are happy, very helpful, and make you feel welcome. The hotel itself is wonderful and we really enjoyed the breakfast.

Our host Edward greeted us a smile and plenty of enthusiasm. The apartment was very clean, spacious and contained all the amenities you could need including all cooking equipment. It is situated around the corner from the historic fish market area (does not smell like fish) and is within close walking distance to all tourist areas, which Edward helped us find as well as making us a personalised waking trail for ur first evening there. We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again

Residence les Ecrins is more a Hotel than a Hostel. I stayed at a single room very clean and with enough space also I had TV with cable. It was 10 minutes by walk from the main spots and the price is ok. I can't say more cause I was only one night but seems that you can trust in the place !

A very nice little hostel that offered everything we were looking for. Perfectly located for exploring the city and easily accessible by foot from Gare Central. Our host Edward was very hospitable, asking specifically what we were looking to do/see and mapping out a route/plan that would cater to that. Stayed in a nice little room more akin to a hotel room that most of the hostels I've stayed in previously - with toilet/shower/sink/tv/hair dryer etc.

An absolute must- so much better than it looks in pictures and absolutely priceless location. The staff here was wonderful and helped us personally multiple times! Such a nice quiet place, I will certainly recommend this place to anyone visiting brussels as it is as nice as a hotel but for a fraction of the price

The owner was amazing. So genuinely friendly and helpful. Couldn't ask for a better host. The cleaning staff was also great! I don't speak French but we managed to find a common language in Spanish- he was extremely nice as well. Great stay!

We had a great stay in this hostel. The room was super comfortable and clean, and the owner was very nice. The included breakfast was great. The wifi was a bit spotty in our top floor room but usually very nice. Out of a two week whirlwind trip around Europe, this was probably my favorite hostel.
