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! (:

Best hostel I stayed in in Europe. Great vibe in bar area all day long!! Staff are amazing and really enjoyed my stay!! whooo


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.
