One of the dirtiest hostels I've ever stayed in, and it was impossible to sleep since the room I was in was right above the bar/courtyard and it was extremely loud.

Lots of beds per room jammed closely together and odd connecting rooms which makes it feel like you're with even more people. Bathrooms/showers far from room - have to walk through bar to get there which is slightly weird. Must hold shower rope to keep water flowing which is stupidly annoying. Besides that, a chill vibe. Met some cool friends and bar is a relaxed place to bond over cheap beer. Would recommend if you're low maintence :)

It was or secod option after our stay at IBIS, brugges is a really small town so everything is close enough to walk. I didn't sleep well because of the noise of cars, the windows stay open, there are no fans. That's why! They have a kitchen and things to cook like oil, salt and pepper, basic things. They offer free tours and have "Rent bicycle".

We had a room with 8 beds, it was very cramped. Also, another room had to walk through ours to get to their door. Two bathrooms for the entire floor but we never had to wait. To get the showers you have to walk through the bar which can be a bit awkward depending on the time of day.

It was a really nice experience!! I specially enjoyed the pub down the hostel, where I could talk with other travellers.

This hostel has pretty tight quarters, but it's expected in a small city like Bruges. There's a bar on the ground floor where you can mingle and meet people. The bar also has a good selection of beers at a decent price. Unfortunately, my room was just above the bar; the music at night was a bit of a nuisance, but didn't really detract from my stay too much. I'd stay here again.

Not the cleanest updates hostel I've ever stayed in. But the choices are limited in Brugge. Definitely adequate and they have bike rentals which was really nice and a bar in the lobby which is super convenient.

This is a really nice hostel, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the location is great. The rooms are a bit basic but it's a friendly little place and it's nice for a few days stay

For Bruges, this hostel is great for young people and it has a nice atmosphere in the bar. Lots of locals go there for a drink. It has everything you need, such as toilets, showers, kitchen etc. but none of them are in the best shape and are really far away from any of the rooms. Also, if you hate spindley stairs, I don't recommend. Bruges is full of old buildings though so I wasn't expecting modern and the hostel itself had a good vibe.

Small spaces and the atmosphere is not that good

It is not adapted for disable people at all. The showers are in China! People from next door room have to cross through our room t get to their room... The breakfast was amazing. The rooms and toilets are clean enough.

Awesome stay!

I did not like the layout of the hostel, because one has to walk through the bar to use the showers. Other than that, I have no real criticisms of this hostel. The staff were very helpful and friendly the bar is well-stocked with Belgian beer, there is a kitchen, and I never felt as though I or my valuables were unsafe. On the whole, I enjoyed my stay at Snuffel very much.

Really nice place. Cheerful and attentive staff. The place look rustic but still very comfortable and practical. Location is just some minutes from the center. The rooms are spacious and in general I had a good sleep.

The staff in the reception are really kind, when I check in, he explain about hostel, and city like imformation of festival, and musiam. even Im not really good English speaker, he speak slowly, and try to let me understand well. it's very helpfull for me. spend good time here.

We only stayed one night with my brother but had a nice night, we enjoyed the walk to the hotel( even if it's a bit far) among the Brugges nice houses. We also enjoyed the happy hour at the hostel bar ( 1 euro for one beer !) However there is no lockersin the room to put our valuable. Staff was friendly and the morning breakfast was good. I would recomend that hostel in Brugges, especially as other places are really overprice.

This hostel gives the worst directions, so without wifi or a map you'll struggle. To make things worse the staff member on duty when I arrived ignored me until I blatantly stood in his face. The place is nice however the showers are outside at the rear, so if you want to shower at night you have to walk through a bar full of people.
