Snuffel is a great hostel! Everything is so shiny and new and you have plenty of space for all your stuff. Definitely one of the best i have ever stayed In. Only addition would be some hooks in the rooms and bathrooms


Really modern, great facilities and an easy walking distance to the central square. The staff were also very friendly and welcoming


Nice hostel which is very well maintained and clean. Very big kitchen, as well as an outdoor seating area and indoor games/sitting room. Key cards are used to enter the building, so security is very good. The hostel is very conveniently located - it is just a short walk to the centre. By night, the hostel bar is also open to the public, meaning it is always busy and the atmosphere is good. It is a great place to meet new people. Overall, a very pleasant stay.


The staff were incredibly helpful and welcoming. When we had a issue with our booking they were very accommodating and found a solution

You cannot get into your room without the card key, which makes your room safe. In the room, there is a big locker, big enough for a big suitcase to go in with room left for a carry-on one and other stuff as well. The hostel is a short walk away from all the main attractions and there is a bus stop right across the street. The staff was helpful. The breakfast was included. The hostel is in a new building, so everything is new. They also have lockers in the basement. I would go back again.

Great hostel, had just re-opened when we arrived so everything was very new and clean. Has a very large and well equipped kitchen. There was also a free walking tour that started from the hostel.


Expected the "old" Snuffel, but what I got was almost a hotel. Perfect hostel, keep up the good work in the new building.


It would be perfect if there had WIFI in room


We were one of the first guests in new location, which is really amazing, superb design, staff, bar, beds, all of it :)


About a 10 - 15 minute walk from the station and old town, close to shops. On a quiet street, although they were digging up the road when I was there, starting very early. No problems and would stay again.


Great Breakfast, friendly staff


No point saying much about this hostel as they are moving locations but I will say that this is not the best hostel for solo travellers!


This was one of the best hostels i have ever stayed in! The armosphere is seriously amazing and the bar/common room/dining room soon became one of our favourite places. In the evening there is a happy hour where you can try the local pils for only 1€! The staff is awesome, everyone was always very friendly and relaxed. Also, the location is perfect, it is very close to the center of Brugge and you can reach everything by walking. Seriously, this hostel made our stay in Brugge awesome. 11/10


Unique atmosphere. Very unique


1 plug only to charge one's phone in a room of 6 people!


The hostel is more or less well located, but you cannot sleep in peace because there is a Bar downstairs with loud music. I didn't have a socket near my bed. The staff was really nice and the FREE breakfast was good.


A fun hostel. Pros: Good interaction between the travellers (through ie 1 euro beer happy hour), friendly staff, dorms are good size as are beds, lockers as well. Location is brilliant. Cons: Wifi signal is weak to non existant in the dorms, and its always flat out slow. It is a walk through an open courtyard and the main bar area between the dorms and shower. Just plan for this; bring stuff to change in the showers, then hit breakky straight after your shower.


Friendly and helpful staff You can meet lots of young traveller there


If you like to enjoy beer and bar , this is your best choice.


This is a well located hostel but with very old facilities. The beds are made of wood so they make a lot of noise. Our room (#11 or 12) was inside another room. Yes you read that right, we had to go inside someone else's room to reach ours. The showers are downstairs which is very annoying and the breakfast was poor. Price/quality wise this is not a good choice. For a place like this I would pay maximum 18 euro/night.
