Awesome bar downstairs to try a heap of Belgian beers. Can walk to the main squares in a few minutes. No wifi in the bedrooms is a bit of a nuisance.
Brilliant hostel. Staff were so friendly and so much fun! Had a brilliant 2 nights there, wish i didnt have to leave when I did! Will definitely be back!
Great hostel with friendly staff, good rooms and a fun bar. The all of the staff that I met were good to talk to and quite knowledgable of the area. The room I was in had good beds and a locker for each, though you need your own lock. Bathroom was good too, great shower and always pretty clean. It seemed a bit further out than some other hostels, but Bruges is so small that it makes little difference. The free wifi and breakfast were nice touch
WiFi doesn't work in rooms, which is frustrating! Even in the bar it was patchy. Location is good, about 10 minutes walk from town. I really liked the curtains on the beds!
The bar was amazing, and the facilities were pretty good. Only drawback was the absurd amount of drunk people yelling and throwing up outside the building throughout the night. Can't blame them them for that though so otherwise it was a great experience!
We just spent one night in St Christopher's Inn - Bauhaus Hostel. We did check-in online which I highly recommend because we has avoided too much time to get the room keys, we just paid the city tax and received some advices how to use the hostel facilities. The hostel lobby is placed together with the bar which gives a very nice atmosphere. The breakfast is served also on the bar. The doublebed room is very nice, clean and provides equipment to keep it warm. The staff could be more friendly.
The Hostel had a friendly environment. Having a bar in the Hostel is a nice touch because it allows you to relax in the lounge after a long day. However, the loud music from the bar overflowed into the lounge area making it a little distracting for people trying to do other things. This wasn't too much of a problem though, just slightly annoying. The location is a little out there, but as Brugge isn't that big, it's not much of an inconvenience. The rooms were clean and enjoyed my stay
This is my second time staying at Bauhaus the first in a dorm then this time I stayed in the apartment. It was very clean and I was impressed by how spacious the kitchen/ dining area was. We weren't planning on cooking but the kettle came in handy for drinks. My only complaint is that the plumbing in the bathroom wasn't great, leaky tap and one of the sinks was blocked. But aside from that great value for money and enjoyed my second stay. Great location too only a short stroll into centre.

We had a great time, it really is a great hostel. The bar is great, staff are amazing, and lots of locals come in too. Only bad thing I can say is there is a smell of sewage in one of the buildings, but this seems to be a common thing around the city... Medieval plumbing maybe.

First of all: paid luggage room. Second: the freezing water at the shower. It was said to "keep calm" and wait for the hot water or else I could let the reception know, but how if the reception is downstair among a bar? I made my way to another shower room with the towel around my body. Worst hostel ever.
We had a great stay overall! The pod beds are comfy :) Great atmosphere! But the breakfast was a bit poor in choices and bikes were not available on the day we visited...
A 1km walk from Grote Markt, everything else was superb. The curtains at the dorm beds are sooo clever. And the free breakfast is awesome!
Friendly staff made me feel right at home from the start. They gave me great recommendations. I would definitely recommend staying there, as I plan to again!
ThE 2 things I liked most about it were the staff and the atmosphere. Very chill, and everyone was very nice. One of my favorite experiences.

Showers and rooms clean. Nothing fancy but good value for the money. Curtains on the bunk beds in the dorm room and outlets for each bed. Very comfortable and cool atmosphere in the lounge and bar areas.
We booked an apartment with shared bathroom/kitchen. We thought it was very well set up and clean (lounge room, kitchen, bathroom). But the kitchen light was broken, so we always cooked and ate in the dark and the toilet, which was next to our bedroom, always got stuck on flushing. But in general it was really good. Wifi doesn't reach private rooms - not sure about dorms.
The bathrooms and showers were not great, but as soon as I left a feedback, the hostel contacted me and told me they're addressing the issue. If they really do, there's nothing else to improve upon except for the final and major drawback: no wifi at all in the rooms. Breakfast and the staff were amazing though.
Staff amable, lockers en mal estado, pocas luces en la habitacion (solo una grande) por lo que a las 3am es molesto cuando la prenden. Limpieza regular
It would be a good idea to let guests staying above the club on club nights know it will be noisy and that there will be club-goers to navigate to get to their rooms.
Good bar and hostel in Bruge! People from different nationalities meet there and have lots of fun. We met pub quiz that night, and it was a tough and knowledgeable one. Pretty like the hostel.
