Good location, walking distance from all the attraction in Bruges. The breakfast was really nice and the bar below has a great atmosphere.
Toilet very short and not enough shower. Lot of extras. Poor breakfast
staff made every effort but lights didn't work, entrance to building damaged. location is good but reception is dark and tired.

Great hostel. Comfortable rooms, close to town and breakfast was included. I had a superior room with pod beds which was excellent. Wifi only available in the bar, but the connection was very good. Only issue was that the layout of my room wasn't particularly good for meeting new people. Other than that it was a great hostel.
Our bunk smelled terrible as if a sewer ran through it. It also was against a stair case so was very noisy all night. The bathrooms were disgusting with broken toilette, soapless soap dispensers and suspicious brown stains on the only working toilette. The showers were ice cold if they worked. This was a very nice hostel (friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere, etc.), however the cleanliness and smell of the facilities was a major detracting factor for us.
A very good stay. A place to hang wet kit would be good, but we were lucky to stay dry. No real negative points. Great!
Showers cold and stairwells smelt ridiculously bad!

One of the worst rooms that I have stayed in. It smelled rancid in the room and nothing was done about it. Beds were ok and location was quite far from what bruges had to offer. Breakfast was ok. Overall, I would say spend a little bit more and find another hostel in Bruges.
We stayed in a double bed private - which was within an apartment with 2 other double rooms, would be great for a group trip. Shared kitchen, living room and bathroom. Cleaned daily by a lovely lady. The bathroom shower lacked a curtain, the only fault I can make. next door, in the Inn, the bar always had a great atmosphere, serving drinks from 10am. A great selection of Belgian beers. All the hostel staff were very helpful and gave good advice about where to eat, lokcers were very useful.
Every hostel in the world should have a bar as cool as this and staff as fantastic as this. Great atmosphere for meeting people or just chilling by yourself if you feel like it. Super great selection of good beer at low prices. It's silly to complain about this hostel being 'too far' from the train station because Brugge is very small and the wall from the station will take you on a very pleasant walk through the center of town. Get the 10 or 12 dorm with the pod beds!!!
This place was great place to stay in Bruges! The common area has a nice area to lounge around in, and the offer half is the bar - so it's got whatever you want. Some of the rooms are above the bar/lounge, so I'm not sure if that would be noisy - but I stayed in the adjacent building. It was very clean, comfortable, quiet, and having a curtain for your bed was a nice touch. Thanks!
Nice place, close to the Grote market. Beds are alright for a night sleep. Bar is great, good prices and cheap food. Would come back for sure! Everything is really close (most 5minutes) which is great. Security is pretty good, lockers in the room are small so your whole pack probably won't fit, but smaller more valuables will fit fine.
The place was pretty good, clean, great staff and pretty awesome overall.. The only issue I had was being a bit far from the station and some stuff but that only really came into play when carrying my heavy backpack :) Taking the bus resolved that on the way back.
Worst hostel I ever stayed. Very old hostel. Dirty. Toilets and shower smell bad. Wifi is very poor in room, need to connect in the bar. Not all the power plugs are working. Paints on the wall fell off. The bar in the hostel turns on the music very loud at 2am. I will never stay here again.
No internet in rooms, only in bar. Lockers were cages so everyone could see your stuff; and if the item was smaller than a fist they could steal it through the cage. Stairwell of dorm smelled like sewage at all times; they should put an exhaust fan in the stairwell. Otherwise, okay location, decent staff and decent bar.
I stayed in the pod beds, which were awesome and had two outlets per person. The staff was really nice and attentive, and breakfast was good. It is a bit far from the main points in Bruges, but then again the whole city is a monument on itself, so you won't feel left out of the town's style. Two important issues: 1 - I couldn't connect the wifi from my room. 2 - The shower was a bit cold.
this hostel is amazing as soon as you walk through the doors you are made to feel very welcome and great location no matter where you walk to its easy to find the way back bruges is an amazing city would really recommend the only downside could use a couple more kitchen appliances we liked it that much we stayed for three nights instead of one really amazing place.
This hostel was great for Bruges. It is only about a 15 minute walk to the center of town. Finding it from the train station is not the easiest but with a map you should be okay. They had great facilities like free breakfast, a social bar, maps and advice. The showers aren't the best because they are push buttons so you can't control the time or temperature. I would recommend this hostel for a stay in Bruges!
Close to an old looking city gate near which there are also windmills at water. Great ambience at the reception and bar. The free breakfast was good. In our nice and comfortable five-bed room there is a sink which is very convenient. Only that two doors of the locker in the room were broken, and it would be better if WiFi connection is available in the room. A pleasant stay in general.
