It's a tossup between this hostel and the Kex in Reykajvik Iceland as to which one was best. Bauhaus is definitely the best one I've stayed at in Belgium (by far) and any hostel in the Netherlands. Privacy curtain on solid bunk, comfortable mattress, reading light, large shower, clean, free breakfast, 10-15 minute walk from Center, grocer 2 minute walk from hostel. Security drawer under bunks is spacious, bring your own padlock. Great hostel.


This is a great place to stay in Bruges. There's a bar downstairs, friendly and cool staff, decent music and a good walking distance from everything you could want to see in town. We stayed in the private room that shared kitchen, lounge and bathroom with two other couples and it was fine. Really clean and everything worked just fine.


The breakfast is sumptuous and the toilet is like paradise

Excellent hostel with helpful staff and great location


Stayed in two rooms: one with the pod beds was great. Second, with just bunk beds, hardly had power sockets and the lockers didn't actually lock. Definitely a party hostel, so don't expect a full night's sleep.


No bathrooms upstairs, not enough showers. Stuff did not inform us and seemed to be surprised about that. There were some signs like "sorry to disturb, we have some problems" but it seems it is on going for some time. No lockers, but this should be fine. Positive side: they organize some fun stuff like beer tasting and walking tours.


Awesome hostel! Cool people, charming bar and chill out area, friendly staff. It was really awesome to stay there, the only drawback was that our locker was not really locking properly. However, the manager of the hostel saw that and saved all our stuff in his personal office, including little change and everything. Just check your locker to be safe and then I would highly recommend that hostel!


the bathrooms where out of order in half the building, the girl at reception is useless, just an overall bad hostel


If you're going to be out until morning, by all means head to this place. It does the job. If not, you're not going to sleep here. They play music at f***-you volume until 0600. I particularly enjoyed trying to fall asleep to Smells Like Teen Spirit. The barman was a c***, but the guy checking us in was nice enough. Despite having 'checked in' via the online service, we still had to fill out the usual reams of forms on arrival, which was disappointing. Good party hostel, else f*** it.


Unfortunately we had to leave hostel but it seemed a good one. Staff was good but it is really hard to find front desk to check in. And there was only one lady and many travellers. One of the bad stuff was: there was a staff who are trying to invite people a beer tasting night at the bar. He was really pushing people like "why don't you want to join? you don't like having fun. okey you don't like having fun". Is that only way to have fun? the Staff should know where to stop. he was annoying.


This place had very friendly and helpful staff with a great atmosphere in the bar in the evening. The security facilities were just a cage under your bed which you pop your bag in and then padlock. But as it's a cage it would be easy to get fingers in and slide things out of the gap between the lid. The beds were great which included a good night light, a curtain and sockets. Although the mattress and pillow weren't too comfy I still had a great nights sleep! Would definitely reccommed


Very nice staff, seem to try their best to help people and getting solo travelers to socialize more. Very good breakfast as well. The curtains within the bunk beds are a great idea, whish more hostels had those. Clean bathrooms and a safe environment.

Hello, thank you for your comments! We're so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and glad that you loved our Pod Dorms, we're looking forward to welcoming you again! Safe journey.


Some bedrooms seem older and some showers were not in service, otherwise, good hostel!

Hi, thanks for your comments. If you prefer the newer pod dormitory be sure to specify “Superior” Pod Dorm when booking, you'll get a little lamp, curtain and power point just for you! Happy travels.


Great location and lively bar are the main pros. On the other hand, there were just 2 power outlets in a 8 bed dorm (both of them by the sink), I couldn't rent a towel because none of them were available. Use a BIG padlock, otherwise your locker won't lock.

Hello , thanks for your opinion – we're glad you enjoyed our great beer! We're sorry you couln't rent a fresh towel though, we're going to get some extra ones to avoid disapointing! Hope to see you again, safe travels.


Female at check in counter is EXTREMELY SLOW, could not use my universal power adapter to charge my phone because it keeps falling over. This has never happened in any other hostel before. Location wasnt near the town centre but it was easy to find because the bus drivers are very warm and friendly and happy to help.

We're sorry you felt check in was slow, our team take care to ensure everything is correct and welcome all to the Bauahus. We don't fully understand the problem you with your adaptor, but fear not just ask our team, we are always happy to help; charge phones or laptops by usb or using the sockets we have in our reception area. From the train station we are an easy 15 min bus ride or if you prefer a little strole, 25 minutes through the beautiful streets of Bruge, or longer if you drink a beer :)


I stayed here for 2 nights (Thursday and Friday in April) and it was quite good. The beds were comfy and big for a hostel with a curtain for privacy. I had just come off a month long bender with my best mate from home (Australia) so I didn't get amongst the bar, but the atmosphere down there was pretty good. I have no doubts this would be the best hostel in Bruges, I'll stay there again if I go back. Ps. If you visit Belgium, go to Leuven during the week. Great town!

Hello, how's things? We love you comments, thank you! We're glad you enjoyed the Pod Dorms and of course our Bauhaus atmosphere! The team are looking forward to seeing you next time and joining us in the bar with a few strong beers ;) see you, safe travels.


A good hostel that ticks all the boxes, the pod rooms are nice and give a sense of privacy even in a dorm room. The included breakfast is good and the staff are friendly. The pub quiz was fun, maybe a few more free activities like this might help improve the atmosphere a little as I found the prices for the pub crawl and beer tasting a little expensive for my taste. Internet doesn't reach the rooms either which means the common area is a little like a quiet internet cafe at times.

Hello , thanks for your opinions. We're glad you enjoyed the dorm rooms and the staff made you feel welcome! The tours and tastings are run by an independant company CHIT and at the Bauahus it include a selection of premium Belgian beers. We understand about we'll be sure to pass on your thoughts about price :) With summer just around the corner we have many live bands on the way, we cant wait! Hope to see you here again, safe travels.


It;s a hostel for young people, definetly, the staff is very helpful and friendly, the hostel it's close to the centre, BUT we had ONE toilet for at least 5 rooms, the showers were not working for 3 days(we had to go to another part of the building ) and the sheets, I'm sorry to say but, they look like they have been used for 100 years. All the doors are squeaking (that's easy to fix) so imagine how fun was during the night when people arrived in their room after 12 o'clock.

Hi, how are you? Thank you so much for your comments, it's great to hear the team made you feel at home and that you enjoyed the Bauhaus quiz night, did you win any beer? We hope you come back to see us again, happy travels!


There were only a few ppl in the hostel when i stayed there so the toilet n bathroom is veryvery clean! My bed has a curtain n electric plug which is good n it was the reason why i choose to stay in the 10ppl dorm. However! There was no wifi in the room, so kind of wasted the curtain n the light coz I cant surf the net on my bed!!!! Plxplx add the wifi! Plus u can only use it in reception which is closed from 00-08. And no kitchen. Breakfast is acceptable though. N a little far from center

Hello, we really appreciate your comments! We're glad you enjoyed the privacy of our Pod Dorms, though sorry to hear you felt let down by the WiFi. We'd really love to increase the WiFi coverage and this is something we look forward to improving in the near future. We would like to note that reception and the bar are closed between roughly 1am - 7am on weekdays, and roughly 4am - 7am at the weekend (dependant upon events). Though our night porter is on hand to help throughout :) Safe travels.
