Snuffle hostel is a regular hostel. To go to the rooms you have to climb up a narrow spiral staircase with your luggage, very unconfortable. The hostel is old and the rooms, beds and bathrooms too. You have to cross all the hostel to have a shower. Its a 10 minutes walk from the city centre. The hostel's bar is cool, there are a lot f kinds of beers and people from brugge come to have a drink in the hostel, in the weekend is always full. Breakfast is regular too, milk, coffee, cereals...

The dorm room beds were not very clean (lots of little hairs all over the beds) and the shower floors were quite dirty and covered in hair. It was also a bit strange to go down a flight of stairs, pass through the bar and go outside and up a flight of stairs to get to the shower room. Otherwise nice facilities, and it was nice to have lockable lockers inside the bedrooms.

The hostel was well situated with very friendly and nice staff, and cheap beer as well! The room was clean, and the bunk bed was comfortable to sleep in. The only issue we had was with the shower, which was in one corner of the room, and only had curtains. It was a bit weird to shower in there.

Location is good. Staff are really nice and helpful. Breakfast is also good enough. And the whole hostel with colorful walls inside is super fantastic. Only shower is far away from the rooms, and toilet is a little bit dirty. But I think it's quite cheap to live in Bruges with this price.

This place has an amazing bar, it's a 10 min walk to stuff but the city is so small it doesn't matter. The showers were a bit annoying, you had to always be pulling the chain otherwise no water. It was good apart from that, great beer

Very nice hostel. The only thing that I didn't like was the pass from the bedroom to the bathrooms.

Bar was good, breakfast was standard. Bring a lock for the lockers (some have outlets so you can charge your phone while it's locked up). The bed was comfortable. The bathrooms are ok, but they are shared by many people. Good for solo travelers for one night but best for groups for multiple nights.

Add varieties in Breakfast other than just breads.

It was really great. The staffs over there are really friendly and helpful. The map that they provided me with was pretty good. But the location of the shower room was a bit odd.leaving that out everything else worked out perfectly for me.

Good hostel if you're looking for character and atmosphere. The hostel bar had a great happy hour and seemed to be popular with locals and backpackers alike. Breakfast wasn't anything super special, but no complaints as it was included in the price. Location isn't ideal but since Bruges is a small place it's not too bad. Yeah, you have to go through the bar and outside to use the showers, but since it's a hostel it's really not that big of a deal. Free wifi only in the reception area.

Snuffel was pretty close to the center of Brugges. It has a lively bar that locals come to. There was a nice included breakfast in the morning and the bedding is all fresjly laundered. The key cards make the building quite secure.

The only bad thing is that you cannot use shower between 123am and 73am because you to walk pass through the bar and the bar is closed at that time. But i like this hostel becaus eyou can buy bus ticket for 1.3 euro (2 euro if you buy from the bus driver . room is spacious. great hostel after all

The staff was very helpful and awesome, the location was great. Take advantage of the cheap bike rental, so worth it! The only downside is the showers as a lot of people have mentioned, it's not the most comfortable place to stay at but all in all it was a great experience! (:

We love Snuffel. Yeah, the showers are hilarious and tend not to have hot water, but the bar makes up for it. Super good vibes and cheap beer. It's a local hang. The rooms are clean and my bed was the most comfortable.

Poor wi-fi, dirty and few bathrooms. Small rooms with dirty linens! Staff not very friendly. Very few plug.

Very nice and helpful staff. The staff should remind or explain every guest during check-in to keep the noise low while in the rooms. Having the showers and restrooms after crossing the bar and through the patio is the only thing I disliked for the price.
